Lagwagon sure doesn't lag behind in talent!
on January 10, 2001
Ok, now this is the complete truth... this CD (even though, it's my second most favorite CD, next to Unwritten Law's self titled), is not Lagwagon's best! I love this CD like crazy, but and it is an awesome CD, but if you've never heard Lagwagon before buy "Let's Talk About Feelings" first. That one will get you hooked, then come back and buy this one. "Let's Talk About Feelings" will get you hooked, "Hoss" will keep you hooked.
Now, in everything made by Lagwagon, and you will notice this from the start, isn't like anything from any other band. The vocals are unmatched anywhere... just listen to his voice... have you ever heard a voice like that?! If you ever dreamed of the best of the best coming together and making one band, his voice would definitely be in there, or at least right next to the guy from Strung Out! The lyrics, just superb... easy to sing to, and never annoying... you could play the songs over and over and still want to keep playing them over and over. The drums, are not as mature as later albums, but still great in their prime (They're awesome here and definitely get better through time). The drums are never repetitive in this album or any of their others... that's what makes them so much more easier to get hooked on! The guitars... oh... just... well, you gotta hear em for yourself... only thing is, the best show of their mastery of guitars is in the song 'Sick'... i guess if you really want to hear it before you buy, try looking for a sample elsewhere, or just listen to the samples here and trust in the ratings of this CD... but believe me and everyone else in these reviews.
If you like these samples, you'll love the rest of the songs... besides, you'll never know unless you buy it, and with Lagwagon you can't go wrong!
