Bringing their own style of alternative rock to Montreal on July 12 at Le National, Blue October is a band that is hard to figure out. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. They have more personalities or sounds than Sybil. Varying from straight out rock to outer space sounding music, this band likes to experiment with their sound. Even though they are from Texas lead singer CB Hudson sounds very British even sounding, if I dare say, a little like Peter Gabriel. Most people will buy the album because they heard the song "Hate Me" but there is definitely more to the album than just one song. For instance, the opening track "You Make Me Smile" is a keeper.
