#12] Collective Soul Youth
El Music Group)
On their first
record since parting ways with Atlantic Records, Collective Soul has taken an
interesting stylistic turn. While the band continues to channel pop influence,
Youth tends to take the band down a more of a 70s glam rock path.
Blending Bowie, T. Rex, and some INXS, the Georgia band sounds quite natural
moving in this direction. Shawn Grove and Chris Lord-Alges skillful mixes
accentuate Collective Souls new edge with added shimmer.
