is the fourth studio album by Atlanta-based American alternative rock band Collective Soul. The album was released in February 1999 and peaked at #21 in Billboard's albums chart (see 1999 in music). The album's title was derived from a catchphrase they used to describe burnout after their previous tour.[3]

The first single from the album, "Heavy", gave the band another #1 hit on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and spent a then record-breaking 15 weeks in the top spot. "Heavy" was also featured in the opening of EA Sports NHL 2001 video game. The second single released, "Run", also gained broad mainstream radioplay.

Over nine years after the album's release date, "Tremble for My Beloved" was featured in the 2008 film, Twilight during the opening sequence and its accompanying soundtrack.

[edit] RecordingEdit

Dosage marked a change in recording and style for Collective Soul. Unhappy with the production and sound of the previous album Disciplined Breakdown, the band focused more on production and technique for the recording of Dosage.[4] The result led to an arduous six-month recording period where according to guitarist Dean Roland: "The way we recorded Dosage, we were really meticulous about everything that we did for that record."[4] More than before the band progressed to a high production pop-rock sound. This status was obvious with the extensive use of loops, Pro-Tools effects, and synth-pop sounds, especially in comparison with the band's previous three albums which are more organic and raw in sound.
