Review

This is an album that I would say is one of the five most important in Modern Rock genre. When Tonic's debut, Lemon Parade came out in 1996, it was a great success and sold over 1.3 million copies. The first single "If You Could Only See" went up at number 11 on Billboard and stayed there as many as 63 weeks. However Lemon Parade is not a hit single album as it’s the style and mix of songs that makes it so hugely impressed. When it came it was stylistically unique with one foot in American rock, a foot in the grunge and a certain dose of classic rock.  The style and strong songs makes it an album that stands out in a genre that soon been current for twenty years and continues to deliver good album. Nevertheless, there are few that come close to this quality where the track "Open Up Your Eyes," "Soldier's Daughter" and "Mountain" shows how to mix soul, heart and great melodies in the best of ways.
If you don’t own this masterpiece, it's a time to purchase it as Modern Rock does not get better than this!
