I liked the demos that got leaked late last year so unless they drastically changed those demos I think I'll definitely be liking the official release. I think overall though it's less immediate and rocking than Everything You Want, even less so than Go. But I think they're still songs that have solid meaning behind them which is a breath of fresh air in today's empty musical climate.

As a huuuuuuuuuuuuge fan of 90s poprock, I'm surprised at all of the love for Everything You Want as a full album. I was incredibly disappointed by it and really felt the singles were the only good tracks. Granted that was way back when the album came out, but still.

Yeah, Green River Ordinance is doing it for me this year. They are so good.
The new BTE album isn't that great. Sounds a lot like a Kevin Griffin solo album. It's worth a gander, but not terrific. As for the new J.R. Richards. Freaking A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. So solid.

Yeah, I can't really get into the new BTE album either, which is too bad because their last one was great.

I've always found Vertical Horizon's music very cliche, but somehow its usually good. This record isn't really very good though.

so dissapointing...I used to love this band. I'll still get some momentary enjoyment out of listening to the record, but from what it sounds it won't be much more than that...

I listened to these guys years ago with their album "Everything you want". One of the tracks I had on repeat was "Give you Back" - great tune.

It will be interesting to hear what this new album sounds like.

Give You Back is my favorite on EYW. Nice call.

I think the overall rating is unfair. I think that if marketed correctly, this album could be a comeback album (I didn't like their 2003 release at all.) I've only heard a few songs off the new one but it seems like a really base. I will buy the album.

I am happy they are making a return. The have a lot of talent that has yet to be tapped.
