About this album

Songs of the Unforgiven is the seventh album recorded by the Crash Test Dummies, released in 2004. The album is noted for minimalistic production and the sonnets used for lyrics, some of which are the darkest and most brooding in their entire catalog: talking tales of murder, sinister deeds, punishment, sin, and death.

    I can't really find words to express how much i love this album. I found it totally accidentally. Considering my user name you could guess how. :D Anyway. Glad that it happened. I knew and liked them a long time ago, but this is a whole new level.

    I want to know what the fuck happened to make this album- I don't understand how you go from writing silly alt-rock songs with a vaguely grim atmosphere to songs like "The Wicked and the Evil".

    In my opinion, this album breaks a long streak of mediocrity for the band, I agree that it is their best album since God Shuffled His Feet, and is second only to that album when it comes to the best records from the Crash Test Dummies.

    This is a monstrously underrated and overlooked effort by the band, not only easily this band's best album since God Shuffled His Feet (which isn't saying much I suppose) but a very excellent, cohesive set of songs. Is The Spell Really Broken?, And So Will Always Be and You've Had Your Run are especially poignant.
