    I just bought the latest Collective Soul CD entitled "Blender". These guys rock! They come up with some of the best riffs this side of King Edward. I saw them open for VH on the Balance Tour back in '95. They're a very solid band. Check out the CD if you get a chance.

    A few songs off their alblum before that one where catchy. I didn't know they had a new alblum though. I just could never get into them cause of the singers voice.

    I saw Creed and Collective soul not to long ago and Collectives souls lead guitarist blew me away, he is a pretty damn good player, he doesnt just stand there and stare at his fret hand the whole time as opposed to Tremonti... i swear to God I could have hit tremonti with a fucking rock and he wouldnt have moved an inch.

    I love Collective Soul too!

    To be honest, I couldn't tell you all the names of their albums, but I could probably sing every melody and lyric to their shit.

    Great Band. I think their latest offering is their weakest to date. But it still is pretty good.

    There was an earlier discussion about this album and someone suggested to give the album "some time" To me, this means that it's not as good as earlier stuff, but you'll come to appreciate it.

    Put in their 2nd and 3rd albums and you'll find they're a lot more "poppy" then Blender.
    The tunes on Blender aren't quite as catchy, the "hooks" are there, but their not as big, and I think some of that was on purpose.

    Bledner is like "3". It's different then the earlier stuff because that's the direction the band wanted to go in.

    For those who don't own a Collective Soul album, do yourself a favor and pick up their 2nd and 3rd albums, maybe someone can help me with their names!!!!

    Back when Blender came out I made a post about it in here.

    All I got were comments about how they thought it was a Brett wedding present thread.

    Ah, just another sign of how they're probably the most underrated band around today.

    Got to give them props though - to downgrade themselves to a support act just because they know Creed has bigger support than they do right now.
