Taproot - Our Long Road Home review


Release Date: 09/16/2008
Label: Velvet Hammer


Call me naive but I really don’t get this album. On the plus side....It sounds nothing like Taproot’s rap rock influenced earlier releases, but on the negative side....it’s just not that memorable! There are some good moments...but the majority of the album has been heard before.

“Our Long Road Home” is an album I have eagerly been anticipating for some time now. 2005’s “Blue-Sky Research” was a good album. Definitely not a perfect album....but I did enjoy most parts of it. It was somewhat original and it showed a more mature Taproot! “Our Long Road Home” plays in a similar vein to “Blue-Sky Research” but not as mature. It would have made more sense to release “Our Long Road Home” before “Blue-Sky Research”.....I don’t know....it just feels like Taproot have taken a small step backwards and ended up stepping in dog shit!

With that said, “Path Less Taken” is probably one of the better songs Taproot has ever written. If the entire album rocked like that song does we would have one hell of an album! But unfortunately, the rest of “Our Long Road Home”, besides one or two somewhat enjoyable songs, is very forgettable!

The main problem with “Our Long Road Home” is that it definitely won’t give Taproot any success! While it is softer and less intricate, it still will not impress the radio listeners ears when bands like Daughtry, Maroon 5 and Linkin Park are pretty much as hard rock as the radio listeners can take! I’m just not sure what Taproot was trying to achieve.

Maybe this album is a grower! But after six listens I still can’t find more than three memorable moments! If Taproot want to start writing songs that will receive more airplay....then they need to do more than just lower the distortion! For instance.....maybe they can try to write something good! Just a thought....

Rating: 3/5
Choice Lyric: “Why not believe in making change?”
Download: Path Less Taken, Wherever I Stand
Random Trivia: Fred Durst offered Taproot their first record contract...which they declined!
