Apr 22, Katrina rated it it was amazing. It is beautifully illustrated and offers the readers even more of an opportunity inside the mind of Justin Makin lead singer and lyricist of B. This book is a definite necessity for any Blue October fan!

I was worried that they might not crzay as good in person as they did on their CD’s but I couldn’t have been more wrong! What surprised me the MOST was the fact that even the small venue wasn’t filled to capacity! Great news for ME because I got to stand just feet away from him View all 3 comments.

Jun 25, Amber – DancingQueen rated it really liked it. Justin Furstenfeld, lead singer of the band Blue Octoberis a gifted lyricist and musician. He creates such depth of feeling with his words. You can’t help but empathize with his emotions, whether you have actually been in those situations or not.

The book includes all the song lyrics from the band’s various albums, with hand written thoughts, from Justin, on each song. Also included is artwork that Justin created, and photographs. Justin is brilliant, and this book is a thing to cherish. A must Justin Furstenfeld, lead singer of the band Blue Octoberis a gifted lyricist and musician. A must have for all you Blue October fans.

I am so glad I bought it. Not a book for the kids. Oct 28, Astoria rated it it was amazing Shelves: Nobody promised that this book was going to be an in depth look into the band or their music.

What it helped me do was understand Justin a little bit more, to see where he was coming from with each song, even if his explanation was only a line or two long. Oct 15, Alexis Ortiz rated it it was amazing. I attended the concert by myself because no one I know is as interested in them as I am, even with my own personal promoting of the band.


And of course they were fantastic! It was the best concert of my life, and even better was the meet and greet prior Justin signed my book!!!! They were so friendly and humble, showing us just how thankful they were for having fans like us. Once Jeremy started banging on the drums, Brian swayed his bow and Justin opened his mouth, I was in a trance. The love they have for music — their music — and us was felt in that tiny theater.

These wonderful guys write all their music, and they are original and good that words fail me. This book is just as great for all the reasons they are. There are cool pics and little notes about each song, giving you some insight on just where these songs derive from.

Although I wil say I did expect more from the notes, more of a story line, more of an explanation. Jan 06, Dave Bob rated it it was amazing.

And to have the songs, Justin’s words, put into a book He holds no part of himself back, it’s all laid out in his words. Heartbreaking, joyous, angry, threatening,and lifechanging. Our experiences might be very different but on some level we can all relate!

Feb 11, Jonathan rated it it was ok. I am reviewing the iBooks version. The main thing you are getting are Justin’s lyrics, which are very personal to me, and most of their fanbase. While I could consider this cool to own in print form, it is very pointless for an ebook, as I could easily just google them.

I got this with the hopes of it having more of backstory and history to his songwriting, but the only supplemental things were rare scribbled sentences at the bottom of select pages.

The iBooks version does include audio to many tr I am reviewing the iBooks version. The iBooks version does include audio to many tracks, as well as music videos from Any Man in America, and two furstenfeod Sway. I would suggest just buying the print version of this if you want it for the lyrics.


The extra scribblings, articles, and a few photographs were not worth getting this to me. It also left a bad taste in my mouth that Stephanie Meyer wrote the introduction. Comparing her and Justin’s artistic value to me is like a fine sandwich, and a watered-down, very derivative one dipped in glitter and horrible characterization.

Jun 12, Jen rated it it was amazing. I was hoping for a little more insight via Justin’s comments, especially in the Foiled section because that album has always been the most “mysterious” for me. I bought it when “Hate Me” came out, and thought it was really strange, but I liked it. However, I didn’t get any of their other albums until years later, and I deeply regret that.

Most of Justin’s songs are so brutally honest you can’t NOT know that they are about one person’s very painful journey through mental illness, romantic agony, a failed marriage, and the birth of his daughter. The book is enough, but would have been better with MORE. Was it worth the money I spent? Jul 20, Carla rated it it was amazing. If you’re a fan, than you will appreciate the insight into the inspirations for different songs. No doubt, Justin’s account of the trials and tribulations of the music industry paints a rather bleak view of what occurs in building a band If you are a rock and roll fan than you will appreciate the blood sweat and tears that goes into building a band and being able to rise above the personal and professional hardships that happens while trying to have longevity in the industry.

Oct 05, Katey rated it did not like it Shelves: I am a fan of Blue October. I enjoy their music very much, especially Justin Furstenfeld’s lyrics. However, as a book, especially one that was delayed shipment way past it’s promised date, I am sorely disappointed.

It just doesn’t hold much water but plenty of angst and sadness!

What I got instead were the hurried one or two sentence scribblings. Sure, it’s a nice little book that has all the lyrics, but if ly I am a fan of Blue October. I hear all the kids are on it these days. It didn’t help my feelings on this matter any by having Stephenie Meyer write the intro either. Dec 02, Adrian rated it it was amazing. I love this book. I was maybe expecting a little bit more than what is there, but I was so excited to get this book that what is there made a big difference in how I listen to Blue Ocotber’s music.

When I first got it I read through a couple of notes. When I got the chance I grabbed my mp3 player and the book and listened to some songs while reading through it.
