Our Lady Peace

I really, really, really like the songs I've heard on the radio, unfortunately I can't seem to find anyone who has their cd's

I'd like to go to their concert in June, since they're coming really close to me and tix are mad cheap, are their any fans here that can tell me more about them??

Hey Nikkibabe!
I think you'll find thats another thing you have in common with The WonderBra.
Ladywiththespinninghead likes them too I believe.
Damn, your name is a bugger to type out, Julie.

Ive heard a few of their tracks. Have fun at the gig if you go!

good canadian band who are great in the studio but from my 1 experience live, i did not enjoy them.
i saw them at my campus bar probably 2 years ago this september and did not like their live sound.
just 1 experience though. check out 'spiritual machines', 'happiness is not a fish you can catch'(i think that's what it is called) and the disc with naveed on it, can't remember the title.

ooh yay I found someone with Clumsy (that was the name of their second album right?), so hopefully I will burn that in the near future.

Thanks for your input Koba, hopefully it was just one night cos I'm gonna go anyway (if I can get tix this time! ) And thanks Manda! maybe one of them will drop by.

bono-vox, I'm not sure cos I never saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, but there's an old dude holding a fish on the cover of Happiness Is Not A Fish You Can Catch.

anyways, sorry I always ask you guys about bands, it's just the websites don't really give me opinions. thanks!

wtf koby???? what about their sound did you not like? maybe the sound system was bad, that's all I can think of, because the live recordings of them I've heard are great...

and I saw OLP at a club in DC last summer and was blown away! great sound, great performance, the crowd knew every word to every song, and the band has a great appreciation of their fans, it was one of my favorite concerts experiences

I will certainly be going to see them again!

If it's cheap and you like their songs it might be worth checking out. But when I went it was a disaster. The sound was muddy and confused, yet this was a venue where I have heard the best acoustics of my concert going experiences. A venue I've had experience playing around in and there is no excuse for muddy sound. They didn't seem to be trying to change anything either and the opening band was fine.

I could have excused this, but the band was very lackluster in stage presence. I felt doubly ripped off.

It may have been an off night, but they didn't seem to try to make things better.

Pretty cool.. a band I like but don't usually go out of my way to listen too.. you don't really have to up in Canadaland because they're reallly popular up here. i know a few people who've seen 'em live and haven't heard bad things, like unforgettablefoxfire.. perhaps he'll pop around and give the lowdown, i'm pretty sure he enjoyed ot

SkeeK said unto the masses, unforgettablefoxfire shall pop around and give the lowdown... and it was so...


Alrightieo! I went to see OLP at the western fair here in london this year, opening band Joydrop (also worth checking out imho).

Now, tracks they played throughout the course of the concert:

Right Behind You
In Repair
Life
Are You Sad
(all off of spiritual machines)

Whatever
(Chris Benoit Theme - WWF Forceable Entry),

One Man Army
Is Anybody Home
Theif
(all from Happiness Is Not A Fish That You Can Catch)

Superman's Dead
Automatic Flowers
Clumsy
4 a.m.
(All from Clumsy)

Starseed
Naveed
Supersattelite
(All from Naveed)


Mkay, I think thats what they played, not in that order of course. It was pretty cool to hear Whatever, since that track wasnt released until Forceable Entry hit stores sometime around March-ish, and since this concert was last September... *thumbs up*

Now then, the sound was certainly not muddy in any way, and Ive been to a show or two at the Grandstand @ the fairgrounds before and the sound quality Ive heard before was less than great... But it was certainly good. My only greivance were the video screens, since this was outdoors for the most part, it didnt get dark until maybe 1/3 of the way through the show, so they were nigh impossible to see while there was still light outside. But I mean sound was good, and the setlist was pretty damn cool since it was most of my favorite songs... I think there were a couple from naveed that i missed, but I dont have that album, so I hadnt really heard them before, but even that in itself is pretty cool, hearing new stuff, even if its not new-new.

Now then, if we want to talk albums... Get all of them. LOL... seriously though. Naveed is a lot of people's favorite album, not mine, but some people like the sound, its a bit different then the rest of their stuff, plus its got some sweet songs on it, and its where the whole thing began, so its got that classic value too.

Clumsy, a great album, this is the one that made them famous. Great alternative rock on here, pretty cool stuff.

Happiness is not a fish that you can catch, its pretty cool, it experiments around from their past stuff, all the songs are good, its solid from begining to end, but the only real mentionables are One Man Army and Theif.

Spiritual Machines, this album is, without a doubt, probably their best. Its themed around a book (the title of which escapes me), and it has a good flow to it sofaras which song leads into the next and all that, the songs are all great, there are so many worth mentioning, pretty much the whole album. If you pick up any one of the albums, you should probably get this one, although clumsy is a good pick as well. Im by no means saying not to buy Naveed or Happiness, its just that overall I feel Clumsy and SM are better albums and there is more on those that you would enjoy.


So sayeth the Fox.
