EDITORS’ NOTES

Divorce songs aren’t just limited to country music. Blue October’s sixth studio album finds frontman Justin Furstenfeld musing on a split with his wife and the custody battle for his daughter (that’s her artwork gracing the album cover). Needless to say, Any Man In America is an incredibly melancholy and dramatic album. Most songs here retrace the steps leading up to the split in excruciating detail. “The Feel Again (Stay)” opens with light piano notes building into a ballad where Furstenfeld’s lyrics try to make sense of what just happened while begging his ex-wife to stay. “For the Love” addresses the difficulty of trying to raise a child in two different households. Standout track “The Chills” is a catchy emotional rocker with a fevered vocal performance that spews gripping lyrics describing the goose bumps and cold flashes experienced before suffering a breakdown.
