Aside from the coldly pop nature of the album, there is the duet with Elton John - for which the mix is inexplicably softened to something approaching the mushy end of AOR, which is very much the place that people saw John inhabiting through 1999-2000. The end result is hardly distinctive enough to be of interest.
So here is Collective Soul's fifth release "Blender". Another meticulously well produced effort by the band's frontman Ed Roland. I suspect that since their last cd, 1999's "Dosage", was ignored by radio and MTV/VH1, that the same fate will befall "Blender". As long as Collective Soul remains an underground fan's band I hope they continue to bring us great music like they have over the past seven years . This album may have gotten the band off people's radars. Which caused them to miss phenomenal later releases Youth, Afterwords, Welcome All Again & Collective Soul (otherwise known as Rabbit).
