Our Lady Peace return with their first studio album in almost three years. Our Lady Peace is one of the few bands today who constantly tries to reinvent themselves on every record they put out. Itís highly uncommon to find comparisons from one record to the next let alone across their entire collection. While this is generally a good thing, sometimes when a band has been around for quite sometime, they tend to run out of directions to move in, which is the case with the latest album from Our Lady Peace. While at the core you can hear the potential of this talented band, the listener is distracted by the incoherence of many of these melodically flawed tracks. Rather than hook the listener in, many of the tracks just tend to drag on, losing the interest of the listener. While this isnít the first time that Our Lady Peace has released a disappointing record, it certainly could be a sign of a band that has clearly declined since being one of the best bands of the 90ís.
