[Powderworks] Re: Breathe as a full album

I definately think that Breathe's biggest problem is a fusion of an
experiment in songwriting that was a rather patchy success (ie teh
laid-back sound) and HORRIBLE production that obscures the distinctive
"Oily" flourishes wherever they crept in.
That said, though the bulk of the album sounds lifeless, and a few songs
are just bland and/or bad, Bring On The Change, E-Beat, & Barest Degree
are great, especially E-Beat. Crank up the treble on the album and it all
sounds a little better, but these 3 especially come alive.
I don't think it's a coincidence that E-beat and BotC were played live a
fair bit on the Redneck tour...
