Review: Candlebox- Disappearing in Airports

Coming out of Seattle in the early 90\’s with Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Nirvana, Candlebox was always in a league of their own. They were lumped into that group but their sound was very, very different.

Over 20 years later, Candlebox are still going strong and their latest album- Disappearing in Airports is a true return to form. Four years removed from Love Stories & Other Musings, this is a Candlebox album through and through.

The songs and lyrics are deep-seeded and personal and it shows. You can tell the four-year wait was for good purposes, they really took their time to make sure the album is a powerful one. Songs like “Vexatious,” “Supernova” and “Crazy” are the bread and butter of the album and prove the band still has what it takes to write a beautiful record.

In the end, Disappearing in Airports is one of Candlebox\’s artistic and creative masterpieces that stand right up with their self-titled album and Happy Pills and, when it\’s all said and done, should be considered one of the band\’s strongest albums.

Rating: 9/10
