Extremely narrow perception of a multi-talented band. Every one who has attended a Blue October concert, knows the hard work and commitment that goes into each and every performance. Anyone who cares to can Meet and Greet the band after the show, where they happily stand and sign, take pictures for every person. The music is obviously beyond anything you can understand, the sincerity, the range, the depth of emotion is so far and away above almost anything in music today, you don't even recognize true talent when you see it. Their new album is again an evolvement they have continued to do through 13 years together, another glowing achievement in their arsenal of amazing songwriting and performing.An amazing Rock/Alternative Band amongst all of the mediocre 'artists' on the radio today.Check your ears and your criticism, music obviously isn't something you know much about.
