All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
The breakout success of "Save Yourself" in 2002 was due neither to fluke nor bandwagoneering. Even as far back as 1994's Killed for Less, Sense Field showed the ability to sprinkle its punk and hardcore influences with crocodile tears, so the issuing of a three-minute soundtrack to an emo kid make-out party wasn't very far-fetched. Living Outside is as conscious a follow-up record as there can be, but it's likely also the record Sense Field would've made anyway, even without the band's mainstream ascendancy. Outside was written principally by guitarist Chris Evenson and vocalist Jon Bunch, and they've looked to new wave and 1980s guitar pop to define the album's sound. ...

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
The breakout success of "Save Yourself" in 2002 was due neither to fluke nor bandwagoneering. Even as far back as 1994's Killed for Less, Sense Field showed the ability to sprinkle its punk and hardcore influences with crocodile tears, so the issuing of a three-minute soundtrack to an emo kid make-out party wasn't very far-fetched. Living Outside is as conscious a follow-up record as there can be, but it's likely also the record Sense Field would've made anyway, even without the band's mainstream ascendancy. Outside was written principally by guitarist Chris Evenson and vocalist Jon Bunch, and they've looked to new wave and 1980s guitar pop to define the album's sound. Synths and processed loops turn up throughout, in part replacing the contributions of guitarist Rodney Sellars, who opted out of Sense Field to focus on family issues. The whirring, fuzzy electronics plop "No Medicine," "Take What You Want," and "Haunted" somewhere between Depeche Mode and Garbage. But a completely unpretentious Cure cover is a winking reminder that the guys in Sense Field are old enough to draw their '80s influences from their high-school music collections, instead of a bag of studio tricks. Meanwhile, the broad melodies and fervent vocals from the always reliably ardent Bunch of "On Your Own" and "Feel What You Feel" approach the grandeur of the band's breakthrough ballad without brazenly rewriting it. The production presence of Brad Wood on four of Outside's tracks refines the sound a bit too much, occasionally suggesting the populist supermarket alt.rock of Collective Soul. But though it's been sanded smooth over the years, Sense Field can still stump from the punk rock platform, as "Running Behind" and "Burn" attest. For the latter, Wood layered strings into the mix, and tries to rely on the space created from a skittering piano break to build tension. But it's in one-on-one lines like "No I don't want to meet you to talk/So stop coming by my work" where "Burn"'s urgency actually lies. Moments like this leave Living Outside's surface a bit rough, and help it exist as the next Sense Field album, and not simply the next Sense Field album since "Save Yourself."

    amazing

    this cd is incredible. I can listen all the way through without skipping over songs. If you buy the cd, make sure you listen to the hidden track at the end of the last track because its one of the prettiest songs i have ever heard.
