Our Lady Peace returns in 2009 with an independent release. Nobody had control of their music but them and as it turns out these guys know what they’re doing. Closely resembling their early releases “Naveed” and “Clumsy” with a few more melodic sensibilities “Burn Burn” turns out to be a great album. Songs like “All You Did Was Save My Life”, “Dreamland”, “Never Get Over You”, and “White Flags” all resemble early Our Lady Peace work but they’re not identical because they do show some of the growth and change the band accomplished with “Gravity.” Be sure to check out “Dreamland” if you’re going to listen to one song from this album- it’s one of the elite OLP tracks. “Burn Burn” isn’t Our Lady Peace’s best work but that wasn’t really expected. They had a string of five outstanding albums and then they released “Healthy in Paranoid Times” which didn’t stand up to the band’s previous works. “Burn Burn” isn’t the band’s best album but they’re back with a bit of the edge they had before “Somewhere Out There” blew up and they’re back to form with a good album.
