Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I can't begin to explain how awesome this album is! Crossing The Rubicon was definitely worth the wait!!!!! Every track is unique and catchy, and be sure to listen to track number 8! Deff one to listen to at the beach while your relaxing! :) The SOUNDS are truly amazing I can't wait to see them in concert again! Go see them with No Doubt!!!!!

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I really love the Sounds and Crossing the Rubicon. I've been a fan since 2005 and have had the privilege of seeing the band perfom twice. The songs sound the same live as they do on record and that is always a great thing! Dorchester Hotel is probably my favorite track on this record.

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I think that this cd is amazing. In the review they say that its trying to hard, but I think that it has lived up to its full potential. I cannot wait to see what The Sounds come up with next.

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

This is an amazing album. The Sounds couldn't have done any better. I haven't stoped listening to it since it came out!!

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I have to disagree on Beatbox. This is a highly danceable tune. I can't help but move when it comes on. I really like the song Crossing the Rubicon and what the lyrics actually mean. Also, I think My Lover works really well. It is one of my favorites. I love this album! I've been listening to this in my car nonstop since I received it in the mail.

And, I believe the correct order of lyrics is, "I got confessions to make / listen up! / No one sleeps when I’m awake." :)

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

The review started good but ended poorly. This record is great!! Every song from "No One Sleeps when I'm awake" to "Home is where the heart is" are awesome. I actually like "beatbox"!!

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

This is one of the best cds you're going to hear this year. (Beat) My Lover is more than worth $8-$9 you'll pay if you catch this cd on sale. Beatbox may be a dance track but The Sounds rock it out live like something worthy of Led Zeppelin. Love it! See the Sounds live if you can, preferably in a small club where you can get up close. Play this cd loud, get your neighbors dancing.

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I heard The Sound for the first time when I was 13-14 years old... and I like them since that time. The next album was awesome! I still listening to it... it makes me dance! But this new album is the best I've ever heard in this year!!! The music is amazing and Maja's voice is beautiful... so, you have to go to the store and buy it !!!

and you also have to go to a show of them!!! :D they're amaziiing!!!

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

This is one of the smartest reviews on this CD out there. The only thing I disagree with is that I do think "Crossing the Rubicon" serves as more of an interlude, dividing the songs between assertive for the first half and melancholy for the second.

Love this album!

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

The Sounds' Third CD, Crossing The Rubicon, is an excellent listen. While it isn't as raw or raunchy as the debut release "Living in America", it captures the essence of The Sounds' and shows just how much the band has come from 2003. I look forward to yet another great album like this one.

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

What a terrible review. Mostly because they listed two of my favorite songs as being a downside to the album ("Beatbox" and "Crossing the Rubicon."

Does this person even like music?

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I love this Cd, another great album from the Sounds.
Maja has one of the most powerful voices out there.

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

This is the best review I've seen so far! Funny how Brittany doesn't care too much for Beatbox, because that track seems to be a favorite among almost everyone I ask, including myself.
I love this entire album! I give it 5 stars and/or 10/10.
If you haven't discovered The Sounds yet, buy all three albums! You won't be disappointed! The Sounds are truly something unique!!

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

i agree with the "artful but creepy" comment... however its a good type of creepy =]
im surprised nothing was mentioned about underground in this article... its a great song with a catchy tune and meaningful lyrics

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

""Beatbox" mixes African beats and hip-hop vocals, but aims too hard for the dance floor." WHAT?! i'd dance to it. The Sounds are awesome! this album is awesome! see them live if you ever get the chance, that's when they're at their best

Re: “CD Review: The Sounds

I mostly agree with this review except I think 'Beatbox' works just well. Actually I believe this album is pretty much incredible, I've been listening to it non stop since June 2nd.
