J'ecris ce commentaire uniquement car le seul autre commentaire est incendiaire et me parait faux sur plein d'aspects...
Non je ne pense pas que Days of The News ce soit monté en se disant 'on va faire un album comme l'unplugged d'Alice in chains, chier une dizaine de chansons et hop le tour est joué'. bref, évidement Alice in Chains doit faire partie des influences du groupe tout comme Soundgarden et les autres groupes de Seattle, encore faudrait-il le demander au principal songwriter Travis Meeks. Mais bon, je voulais juste dire et signaler que les guitares acoustiques existaient avant l'unplugged d'Alice In Chains (qui est génial et que j'adore), et que je pense que la culture Folk a du jouer un rôle essentiel dans les choix musicaux du groupe. D'ailleurs la suite discographique du groupe restera dans ce registre plus ou moins (dans l'acoustique, ce n'est donc pas un coup monté).
Sinon c'est un excellent 1er album avec 3 gros hits catchy a mort et qui fonctionnent méchamment (d'ou le succès à l'2poque) et un ensemble tres cohérent, assez noir et triste.

Days of a New est un groupe qui a beaucoup écouté Alice in Chains.
Surtout l'Unplugged.
Trop.

Days of a New fait du grunge acoustique et évidemment ce n'est pas forcément une mauvaise idée de prendre un chef d'œuvre pour modèle, mais il faut avoir les moyens de ses ambitions ; et là, le compte n'y est pas.
Le son est chouette, les gars sont de bons musiciens, le premier morceau très sympa.
Mais très vite on se rend compte que tous les morceaux sont comme le premier ; exactement pareil. Et en plus du manque d'inspiration, tous les défauts finissent par se voir beaucoup : le chant n'a aucune subtilité, ne transmet pas d'émotions, on est parfois à la limite de la parodie (la voix pourtant entre Layne Staley et Scott Stapp est soit douce et mélodique, soit énervée et grogne, c'est tout...), le batteur use et surtout abuse des contres temps, il ne se lâche presque jamais et ça saoule; c'est toujours les mêmes arpèges, toujours le même tempo, toujours la même chanson.
J'exagère un peu, on trouve de temps en temps quelques jolis mélodies ou refrains entetants, y'a du potentiel, mais sur ce premier album, c'est l'ennui qui prend le dessus. Tout ça manque beaucoup d'inspiration. Vouloir profiter du succès de l'Unplugged d'Alice In Chains, pourquoi pas, mais la copie est très très loin de valoir l'originale.
9/20

HASH(0x996e15f4) étoiles sur 5 Acoustic Grunge? Hardly. 15 décembre 2003
Par Barry Lee Dejasu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Days of the New's 1997 self-titled debut (and to many people's confusion, ALL their albums are self-titled, usually referred to by a sequential number) is an interesting blend of different styles of music, ranging from rock to folk, grunge to...country, I guess (I don't listen to country - nor do I hate it - but this is fairly close to it, I guess). Many people wrote the band off as an acoustic rip-off of such bands as Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains, but after having this album for about two years now, I have thoroughly determined that this is a false accusation.
What we have here is the brainchild of singer/guitarist/songwriter Travis Meeks. At the time of this album's recording, he was only 17! His voice, a deep, droning croon that has often had comparisons (for good or for bad) to Eddie Vedder's, is expertly used for the best - his screams are scattered but effective. And good lord, LISTEN to him play guitar! Carefully picking and plucking his notes and chords, he set himself quite apart from the many post-grunge bands that lack any talent whatsoever (Puddle of What?). And his band is quite impressive, as well: Justin Whitener as the second guitarist is just as good as Meeks, not to mention a good backing vocalist. Jesse Vest is an okay bassist; nothing of a particular stand-out, but he keeps a good rhythm going, and can be complex at times. And then there's Matt Taul on drums. He is without a doubt an excellent drummer, with nice fills and creative, lyrical percussions that complement each song. It was due to the "grunge rip-off" comparisons that Travis Meeks would struggle to change the band's sound and explore new territories, and the rest of the band, not wanting their styles crimped, would quit. They later picked up singer Hugo Ferreira and formed the band Tantric, and utilized a much more electrified sound.
Some songs, such as the leading single "Touch, Peel, and Stand" and its follow-up, "The Down Town" do share something of a "grungy" feel to them. I suppose if those songs were played using electric guitar with some level(s) of distortion, they COULD probably be considered at least some sort of post-grunge-era rock band. Other songs, such as "Shelf in the Room," "Solitude," and "What's Left for Me?" have more of a ballad-y feel, with a heavy folk influence. The album has a whole blend of musical styles, and it's ALL acoustic, even the solos and leads. My favorite solo: on "Now" - just listen as Meeks and Whitener alternate solos with ease. It's a great collection, and fairly long (not counting the two minutes of silence before the hidden instrumental at the end, the album is over an hour long!).
And speaking of that extra track, we have a lush, springtime feel as we hear birds tweeting and wind blowing, thunder cracking in the sky, and a single acoustic guitar strumming and picking away beautifully. Then...the guitar stops, and we hear more of the wildlife. Shortly after, the guitar returns, plucking notes as a bongo (or similar drum) starts to pulse. Just listen to it. It's an excellent closing piece.
So there it is in a nutshell: Days of the New is not just another post-grunge band. They are (or rather, Travis Meeks himself is) a musical phenomena that blends different styles and should be given their deserved credit as one of the more original and interesting of the '90's rock bands.

HASH(0x996e1a44) étoiles sur 5 Wow! 29 septembre 2005
Par NateHevens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I love acoustic rock, but who knew it could be so good?! DOTN are incredible, and this album is a must-have, and a definite jewel.

And in response to one review, this is a whole new innovation, because has the nerves to play grunge like this... strictly acoustic?

I love this album, and I am looking into getting the other two. And I've heard them... while not as good as this incredible innovation, they are still good.

DOTN, a recent classic band...

HASH(0x996e1c48) étoiles sur 5 Poignant agression from the transcender of post-grunge. 11 décembre 2006
Par J. Chandler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Since his rise to fame amidst critical claims of post-grunge influences and the zenith of his popular influence through the still thriving single, "Touch, Peel And Stand", singer and songwriter Travis Meeks has grown and evolved to a level of composition beyond mere rock-and-roll or grunge. Unfortunately, he has somewhat inexplicably withdrawn from the auspices of critical acclaim that sheltered his ideas only fleetingly. While the work that followed this eponymous debut album, also referred to as The Yellow Album by many fans [this is how I shall refer to it from here on], would go above and beyond what can be seen here as an already potent expression, this album still stands as a unique, well-established reflection of Meeks' identity, and continues to inspire fans new and old. Abandoned by the public eye, those who seek it out continue to discover something greater than the press ever noticed.

The Yellow Album is, at its heart, a soulful assortment of the pages from Meeks' dim experiences in life. While there is an official backup band on The Yellow Album (which would be subsequently fired), Meeks takes all of the credit for the songwriting, and based on future albums that would show him working as a solo artist, rightly so. The dark and melancholic element of Days of the New's music and lyrics are entirely Meeks' own. It is not unfair to look at this album as an autobiography of the troubled artist.

Most of the songs take on themes of abandonment and loneliness, simultaneously condemning society at large for being careless or numb. The epic single "Shelf In The Room" is perhaps the capstone piece of the entire album, depicting the narrator as a trapped creature in need of catharsis and escape. Other songs, such as "The Down Town", focus more the narrator's surroundings, and as such, function a little more uptempo and aggressively. Much of the emotional expression of the music is through Meeks' articulations on the acoustic guitar that is still so characteristic of his work. To date, I still have not heard another rock artist so able to express touching angst through a guitar solo, acoustic or electric. One listen to the beautiful phrasings of "Face Of The Earth", "Whimsical", and "Cling" ought to establish this. Meeks' playing moves from soulful expression to near-floods of emotion, then back again throughout The Yellow Album.

While the other instrumental arrangements are often ignored, they are also a skillfully established part of Meeks' expression. Meeks' use of the bass as a purely "grounded" instrument has offended the sensibilities of some, but works well in this context as a solid foundation from which he is given room to fly. His use of the drums are, in my opinion, the most post-grunge part of this whole album, which gets tagged with too many unneeded comparisons to Pearl Jam and other artists of the early 90s. Meanwhile, his arrangement of layered guitar and vocals here are early murmurs of what he would become especially skilled at in his follow-up, Days of the New II (or The Green Album).

As an overall listening experience, this should appeal the most to fans of "dark" music. Meeks' music is led by harsh male vocals and backed up by some of the most emotional, desperate lyrics this side of goth. In addition, fans of expressive lead guitar from many different genres should be able to appreciate this album's liberal use of the acoustic guitar solo to get its point across. While Meeks went on to express himself in richer, more vibrant works, this is the root of it all, and stands to someday be recognized for the unique niche that it still holds in rock's transition out of grunge and into more poignant territory.

HASH(0x996e1828) étoiles sur 5 Great Moment in Music History 9 avril 2004
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I bought this album this past year. I knew of Days of the New because of the song Touch, Peel, and Stand, which I thought was a great song. I got the album and it was like nothing I'd ever heard before. These guys could play all out metal but on acoustic guitars! I was immediately hooked and the CD hasn't left my CD player for almost 3 months now. Travis Meeks is a fantastic songwriter, as he wrote all of the songs on the album. He is also lead vocalist, and his voice is something to behold as well. The back up vocalist, Todd Whitener, is one of the best back ups I've ever heard. He also plays rythym guitar for the band. Many people compare these guys to Alice in Chains or some of the early 90's grunge bands, but I feel they have made their own sound, a sound that branches off of the Grunge genre. I hate to hear people say that DOTN are just a rip off of an early 90's grunge band. The truth is that they are not and people who say that are idiots. These guys are just good rock musicians. From the drummer to the singer, they are all very good. I was dissapointed that they broke up after such a stellar debut, but I was also glad that each band member went on to continued success. Starting with the first song, "The Shelf in the Room", the album establishes an ambience and keeps it up the entire way through. Each song is great and unique in its own way. The acoustic work is great, and I love the acoustic solos. Standout tracks include, Shelf in the Room, Touch, Peel, and Stand, Face of the Earth, The Downtown, What's Left For Me(great song), Freak(hardest song on album - bad as hell), Now(great great solo, and the hidden track is very well written as well. I would highly recommend this album to anyone. Go out and get it, you won't be dissapointed!

HASH(0x996e1a44) étoiles sur 5 The Debut Album....wise beyond their years 3 septembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I must admit I did not like Days of the New at first...but they grew on me & I bought the CD. It is now my favorite of all.
It, "The Orange Album" is a collection of 12 great songs. It starts off with the epic song "Shelf in the Room". I believe a very personal song (written by lead singer Travis Meeks) about becoming independent, becoming your own person, or at least thinking about the prospect. 5 more songs deal with the same theme on the album, "Solitude" "What's Left For Me?" "Now" "Where I Stand" "How Do You Know You?"
Beyond the meaning & thoughts behind the songs, there is great music. At times I think they are a heavy metal band that were given acoustic instruments to play. The instrumental parts of the songs would stand alone if given the chance. The hidden track at the end is a great example.
I've heard some say Days of the New are a lot like Alice in Chains. Not I... but don't get me wrong I like Alice in Chains very much. I feel that A.I.C. only scratched the surface acoustically with 2 EP's + the unplugged CD. Days of the New is in it for the long haul, going where no band has gone before...with Travis leading the way.
So don't judge this CD after one listening. Try it a few times & you'll see what a piece of work it is.
