1 stars October Project's debut album combined the emotionally charged voice of Mary Fahl with lavish production and gorgeous melodies to serve as comfort food for the soul in 1993. Rather than adopting the blueprint of this album for their sophomore effort, they decided to extrapolate based on the closing track, "Be my Hero", which was a vapid effort at hard rock meant to hint at the band's versatility. As a result, "Falling Father in" is a virtually unrelenting lesson in how to play to one's weaknesses and bury a career in record time.

October Project's sound was intact in the most forgiving sense, but their penchant for heartfelt melodies was AWOL save for a couple of tracks, specifically including the lovely "Adam and Eve" and "Something More than This".

Although a few resurrections have occurred, it seems that few cared anymore, the time long past and opportunities lost. Or maybe they really took the idea as far as they could given the climate of the time, and could not prevent themselves from falling farther into a grave of industry design. Avoid.
