The Great Depression [edit]
by Blindside | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: August 02, 2005

On ABOUT A BURNING FIRE, Blindside proved that they were one of the most diverse hard rock bands on the scene, careening from the screams and rhythmic intensity of death metal to punk-pop cheerfulness at the drop of a hat. In addition, the album was chock full of catchy tunes and the band's trademark inspirational lyric bent. As the title suggests, however, GREAT DEPRESSION explores the band's darker side, often fusing oblique minor-key melodies with the usual heaviness. "Ask Me Now" features Jeff Buckley/Radiohead-esque crooning vocals over a throbbing, drum-heavy groove. "We Are to Follow" channels stud-rock of the Ted Nugent variety while "My Alibi" goes a step further, recalling the thrash guitars and harmonized lead guitars of early Metallica. Characterized by a distinct change in tone from Blindside's previous work, GREAT DEPRESSION also ambitiously redefines the group's art.

This is a bit different then some of their other albums but it rocks. My Alibi is a great song. Blinside continues to grow as a band through this release.

hmmmm | Posted July 26, 2007
i dunno bout this album, it has some really good songs but some of them were a bit ordinary. Heart attack, bleeding under your eyelids, My Alibi and city lights were really good but the other ones had room for improvement.

More epic | Posted July 24, 2007
This has to be Blindside's finest to date. Really thoughtful as well. It invokes you to think outside the square. This album has a great opener (after the techno intro) This Is A Heart Atack, where Christian really shows off his scream, and a soft epic finish, When I Remember.
