  1. Duality

    Duality is a 2005 album from the band Ra. The style from this album has noticeably changed since Ra's debut album of From One. The album boasts a hard rock and melodic vibe whereas their first album had more of a nu metal feel. The middle-eastern influences in the CD are still present, but are noticeably pushed back. Akin to their former album, Duality only claimed one single which was the song "Fallen Angels", a song that was inspired by the Kevin Smith film Dogma. The tenth track "Got Me Going" was played on the radio in the background of the movie Hot Rod. Janel Elizabeth has a cover of the song "Swimming Upstream" streamed on her Myspace. Early pressings of the album were immediately recalled from stores because of a manufacturing glitch, as skipping could be heard on track 2. The problem has since been corrected, and latest pressings of the album feature a sticker on the front of the case stating it to be a remastered version. Ra has sold 80,000 copies of Duality. Duality also reached #137 on the Billboard 200, and also #2 for 18 weeks on Heatseekers Albums. In the 2005 Melrock Awards, Duality was named the 3rd best modern rock album of 2005. The song "Fallen Angels" was named 7th best modern rock song, and "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic" was named 5th best cover version.
