Close to the Edge is the fifth studio album (sixth overall) by the American alternative rock band Blessid Union of Souls, released on September 16, 2008.


Close to the Edge contains twelve songs, eight of which are lifted from their previous album Perception. "I'll Be There" is a relatively simple song analogous to the band's earlier work. "Back from the Dead" was written about recovery from addiction. Lead vocalist Eliot Sloan stated of the conception of the title:

Close To The Edge, in its entirety and its title, represents exactly where we are as a band. There’s a sense of urgency in this record that was completely unintentional and I think it turned out better than anyone in the band expected. It’s the record we’ve been trying to make for the last 5 years, and to hear it as a completed work, knowing it’s about to be released to the masses, has us feeling like this is the first record we’ve ever released.[1]
