This is a band who has changed a lot over the past 13 years, I loved everything they put out up until this record, "soar" "Billy" and "Clumsy" were all genius albums...Dont get me wrong Im not bashing this record, It just for some reason did'nt live up to what I expected it to be. "full on" kic.

This is a band who has changed a lot over the past 13 years, I loved everything they put out up until this record, "soar" "Billy" and "Clumsy" were all genius albums...Dont get me wrong Im not bashing this record, It just for some reason did'nt live up to what I expected it to be.

"full on" kicks ass..I was hoping the entire album would rock like this..but when "she found you" played...I was dissapointed a little...It soon picked up with "factory" and "ordinary life" ...as well as "Mr. Walker" "if you say so" and a few others which are great.. but the others didnt really get my toes tappin.

I Can say that Samiam is one of the most respected groups Out there today, known for their amazing live shows...hard work ethic, and singer jason beebout's distinctive voice...and other aspects that make this band stand out from the others...

Im not sure to recommend this album though, Its good..but its not their best by far...if you want to discover them..get any of the new red archives material or "clumsy" on Atlantic.

I guess bands go through changes, and some pull it off, and some dont..then some could care less if they pull it off...I think Samiam just plays to do something they love and have fun at, and write music that is personal to them...im still a fan of this band nonetheless, Dont think Im totally bashing this album because Im not...you may actually love it..while I dont hate it..I just feel there is something missing, from a lot of the songs, Im kinda half and half on this one....Thats all I can say.

Come back to us Samiam. People like me are drooling for something newer than Astray. This album is fantastic but I still think Clumsy is better. The best song on the album is definitely Ordinary Life.

I love this record. Another classic.

This CD is pretty good. The best song is She Found You. After listening to the songs a couple of times they become similar. Buy a Jimmy Eat World CD instead.

This album is excellent and possibly Samiam's best to dateIt takes several listens for the album to fall into place, and then you realise that this band are hugely talented.

In fact, it is so good that I also own the You Are Freaking Me Out t-shirt!

Clumsy is also an incredible cd. Luckily, for those of us in Europe, Clumsy has been re-released on Burning Heart records.
