It’s a real shame when a band releases an album that is so good and then it goes unnoticed by so many people. Ten years ago the highly underrated band Oceansize released their masterpiece Everyone Into Position. This album was something special and different. The elements of prog rock, space rock, and ambience all find their right place in this album. The band themselves have mixed feeling about this album for some reason. This is one of those albums that with every listen it all starts to sink in more and more. There were bright spots for some of the songs on this album. “Music For A Nurse” was used in an ad campaign for Orange and “Meredith” was used in an episode of The OC. Many regarded this album as a regression for the times. I instead like to look at it as an album and a band that was influenced by a lot of different bands and situations. Sure this type of music for the time seemed dated to some, but to those of us who grew up in the 90’s and loved the feelings we got out of the music, Everyone Into Position was an album that we had been waiting for. Now ten years after its release, the people that disregarded this album are starting to come around to it. It’s amazing what time can do, and how peoples listening habits change. Take this album for a listen and you’ll hear a gem that has gone unappreciated. There isn’t a song on this album that warrants being skipped. Enjoy!
