The Need To Feel Alive [edit]
by Forever Changed | Genre: Pop/Rock | Release Date: March 08, 2005
 

The band's 11-song national debut, produced by James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Further Seems Forever), starts out aggressively with the growling guitars and melodic vocals of "The Last Time," most likely dealing with the frustration of a failing relationship. That track and "Encounter," about seeking truth in the throes of temptation, are ideal for fans of Further Seems Forever's latest lineup, along with Brandston or Anberlin. The equally forceful "Something More" and "The Vanity Letter" are incredibly uplifting, radio ready moments.

Not all songs are as intense, including the more melancholy "Alone," the shoe-gazer pop of "Romance in Denial" and the momentum-building ballad "Knowledge." But just because the volume level isn't as loud as the others, everything still winds up blending together after awhile, which is the album's most noticeable drawback. Rather than switching dynamics and blurring genres, tempo changes are rarely extreme. Meanwhile singer Dan Cole (though always melodic) stays in pretty much the same key throughout the disc's duration. Even so, The Need to Feel Alive positions Forever Changed as a band with potential. With a bit more variety, perhaps they can earn equal ranking with its influences.

The Need to Feel Alive indeed | Posted August 15, 2007
I've loved Forever Changed since I saw them with Relient K in 2005. My favorite song on the album is "Great Divide". It's a truly amazing album with a great message.
