OLP used to be good

Remember their song "Life" ???

That was awesome

Then the lead singer got a Johnny Rzeznik makeover

It's like the "punk" bands like Good Charlotte....you know they get their mohawks done professionally and iron their punk clothes before wearing them and they buy pre-ripped designer clothing...

ANYWAY

carry on

It's interesting you say that about Life...most of the people on OLP's message board don't like that song. I love it. Gravity is alright, it's not my favorite album, but I still like the band for the most part and have enjoyed all of their previous work.

I have Clumsy, the album. It's pretty decent, but the singer takes some time to adjust to.

I've heard somewhere OLP actually supported Creed on one tour or something. This is completely unconfirmed by me, of course.

if you want to give OLP a fair go of it, d/l a few of these songs:

The Wonderful Future
In Repair
Right Behind You
4 a.m.
Naveed
Made to Heal
Middle of Yesterday
Potato Girl
Blister
Starseed
Car Crash
Waited
Thief

those are some good songs...

OLP went down post-Naveed.

Stuff before that album was OK - nothing special, but most certainly not this insipid.

...good choices Wanderer (Thief is my favourite), but you forgot:

Clumsy
Annie
Automatic Flowers
One Man Army
Is Anybody Home

--------------

Please, please don't EVER compare Creed and OLP. I plead, for the love of god, don't do that. It gives me heart trouble, anyurisms, etc.

Listen to "With arms wide open' and then listen to Clumsy. You'll see the difference.

Creed is a bunch of zero-talent hacks, lead by Scott Stapp - a guy who thinks he's god.

I'm not saying OLP is much better (I'm a bigger fan of their old stuff, but hey. Veryone wanst the $$ and the $$ are in the mainstream).

ummm...

Creed sucks and OLP doesn't. I think that's the difference.

hi Martha, I strongly suggest you check out all of OLP's albums BESIDES Gravity, which is their latest. They are a lot more original and honest in my opinion. I am not too crazy about Gravity; it has good melodies and is enjoyable but there is nothing about it that really jumps out and grabs me and says something.

But I just became a fan fairly recently and OLP is one of my favourite bands now. Please listen to some of their stuff, they are (or were) pretty amazing
