Chapters [edit]
by Forever Changed | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: May 16, 2006
 

A pity that they're finished as this final effort shows considerable musical development from the previous. Their emo-influenced modern rock has evolved from the heavier sound of Further Seems Forever into the more melodic styling of Mae, adding piano and keyboards into the mix almost as much as guitars. Forever Changed plays like a more finely tuned machine here, with Ben O'Rear's sophisticated guitar licks in particular a notch above the average band. In addition to the obligatory solitary ballad "Cradle Eyes," there are some excellent rhythmic accents to "The Runaway," "Refusal," and "The Disconnect." Even better is the inspired jam in the closing minute of "No Way Out," and "Letting Go of You" makes quite the anthemic swansong.

It's the lyrics where Forever Changed fall short this time, relying too much on generic themes of romantic longing and overcoming heartache. "Refusal" touches on coping with unbelief, and "No Way Out" could be interpreted as God's response to that. But while messages about embracing who we were made to be ("The Runaway") and seeking personal change ("Never Look Down") are encouraging and positive, they don't really distinguish this band spiritually or creatively"as expressed in "All I Need," it's all been done before. Chapters reveals a band that handled its sound capably and confidently, but who can say now where Forever Changed might have gone had they also grown in songwriting depth?

Chapters | Posted August 15, 2007
Chapters is Forever Changed's last project that was released mid-2006. It is filled with alot of catchy rock songs. yet it has one really amazing lullaby titled "Cradle Eyes". I'd encourage you to check these guys out and buy this album. It's really amazing. and they're really nice guys.
