Review of the Song--The Furious If

The song starts with a very "Cars" feel with the hand claps, but as the song goes on you see Anodyne has captured today's style with a very Lincoln Park vocal answer in the chorus. (Nice panning on the answer to the lead). I would have to say this style is a cross between Rock, Pop and Alternative. Maybe we'll have to create a new genre name for music like this. Of all the songs on the album, I'd have to say this is the catchiest of them all. You stop listening to it, and you find yourself singing in your head, "The furious iiiiiffff." Great job on this one

Review of the song--Butterfly

Yes yes ! My favourite start to a song is accoustic and this one has it. Creasman took me by surprise on this track starting out with smooth falsetto. I was expecting similar vocals to "The Furious If" Creasman not only sings but plays accoustic on "The Butterfly" and I was sitting hear pulling my teeth out with pliers waiting for him to kick it in but alas, the strum stayed the same throughout the song. After verse one, the strum has to change dude, it would be much more listenable.

Reveiw of Album:
Connery Faire: After listening to the whole album, I'd have to say Anodyne has a unique style, and could very well be the cause of a new genre creation. Song's like Fallen and Dear Sir, you get the total rock you're looking for with strong electric leads. With songs like Chasing, you get the calm of the meaning of the word anodyne. 4 out of 5 stars.

Mark Brady: Overall I like this band but for a few musical quirks that could be easily beefed up. This is a band that is full of ideas and have put a huge amount of effort into the whole album including the CD cover booklet. - http://www.bradymax.com/reviews_int.html


The Orlando based magazine, Connections Magazine, recently reviewed The Comfort of Chaos by Jaime Eschelman. The CD received 4 stars with this review.

"Indie rock, pop rock, alt-rock. Whatever you want to call it, Anodyne's The Comfort of Chaos is up there with the best the genre has to offer. The 12 tracks (plus two bonus tracks, which are remixed versions of two of the songs) are diverse enough to keep the album interesting, yet don't stray too far from the band's core sound." - Connections Magazine

Bio

Anodyne is proud to announce their latest CD, The Comfort of Chaos.

Ask the typical audiophile to name their favorite style of music and you’re likely to hear ‘I like everything.’ So why don’t most bands’ music reflect this love of diversity?

One band does.

For the last six years, Orlando-based Anodyne has been serving up tasty slices of American Rock. Their latest effort, The Comfort of Chaos, finds them continuing their unabashed love for variety and having fun.

Front to back, the CD displays a broad spectrum of influences, from old school rock like Steppenwolf to modern bands like Yellowcard, from Coldplay to Britney Spears to Stone Temple Pilots (take a minute to re-read that sentence if you need to).

Anodyne formed in 2001, combining elements of other local bands, with experience ranging as far back as the mid-80s in a variety of singing groups and bands.

Lead singer/rhythm guitarist Carl Creasman pulls most of the songwriting duties. Though songs cover the gamut of styles, all are rooted deeply in subjects close to his heart. Another Creasman hallmark: thought-provoking lyrics of a high order. Unusual, but then again, most frontmen don’t hold two Master’s degrees.

Bass player Chris “D” Delaney and drummer Matthew Porter hold the rhythm section together tight as Lego blocks.

Kyle Williams brings the pain on lead guitar and Greg Coleman rounds out the group on keys with piano chops par excellence.
