Love Loss Hope Repeat

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
Pitched somewhere between John Mayer's earnestness and the genial hacky-sack-on-the-quad pop of the Dave Matthews Band, Carbon Leaf have made it to their seventh album on an abundance of sunny good vibes and a relative paucity of genuinely interesting musical ideas. Produced by British pure-pop master Peter Collins (responsible for hits by everyone from Tracey Ullman to Bon Jovi), Love Loss Hope Repeat is utterly faultless AAA-radio pop. There are hooks aplenty, especially in first single "Learn to Fly" and the gimmicky Matchbox 20-style pop

ock of the title track, and singer Barry Privett has a smoothly appealing voice that's the band's best feature by far. However, there's no real spark of personality on this perfectly arranged, pristinely recorded album. The songs are tuneful but bland, the musical equivalent of a chain-restaurant pizza: tasty and comfortingly familiar (and no doubt quite handy to have around the dorm when the munchies strike), but completely forgettable.

    FANTASTIC - NOTHING IS BLAND ABOUT THIS CD

    Each one of Carbon Leaf's cds gets better and better. The title song, "Love Loss Hope Repeat" is just a great song. The line, "I love you more than I'll ever let on, and that's a fault of mine I'm working on" is a true fact in many relationships! The song, "Comfort" is also a wonderful song. "The War Was in Color" is a beautiful song - a war song as told from the point of a Grandfather who fought in the war, and was unable to go through his things WITH his grandson, as he never got to know his grandson. I love "Under the Wire" and "A Girl and Her Horse." There is not a single song on this cd that I do not like. For anyone to call Carbon Leaf's song bland has to be tone deaf themselves. Their music is fantastic, with beautiful lyrics to match. I recommend you not only buy this cd, but everything by Carbon Leaf. You will NOT be disappointed!
