Blue October most often means top quality and their 8th studio album "Home" is no exception, it has already reached #1 on the independent albums chart in the U.S so there is still hope for rock music in this pop infected world.
The new album shows the band in a softer direction, the songs are more emotional where frontman Justin Furstenfeld opens up in a way we haven´t heard before.
I must admit that it took a few more spins that usual to get into a Blue October album, I wasn´t sure at first that I was going to like as much as I do with their previous releases.
But "Home" grows like the seed in Jack and the beanstalk, so there is absolutely no need to worry because soundwise, these Texans will take you home.
Highlights : Coal makes diamonds, Home, Leave it in the dressing room
