Product Description

Product Description

The multi talented Canadian pro-hockey star didn't generate the kind of interest he thought he might from L.A. record labels, but his fellow countrymen have seen to it that the know-it-alls down south are knocked off their high horse with the popularity of this EP. Roberts and group play melodic, straight ahead rock n roll, never forgetting his indie roots yet find new audiences with his commercial approach. Catch the start of the future star's career here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonic delight Oct. 9 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a CD no one should miss. Incredible, moving, and witty lyrics. The music is moving and packed with a strange energy, without the stench of effort.
Roberts has a raw, honest voice that hits all the right emotions. This album is on par with PJ Harvey, Coldplay, The Matthew Good Band, The Verve or Travis. Some Birds, Brother Down, Don't Walk Away Eileen, and This is How I Live are stand out tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have record Sept. 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this EP after hearing Brother Down on the radio and was pleasantly surprised to find that all the tracks are as strong as Brother Down. What works is the spontaneity of the riffs - the songs really move. The songwriting is the strong point, as Roberts channels the best of Jane's Addiction, Elvis Costello, and even the Beach Boys into a neat package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God Sam found his true calling... Nov. 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sam is a true talent. A fun album with catchy tunes you will be humming all day. I agree with the influences/connections that the other reviewers have suggested and would suggest that there is some Jane's Addiction type of influence here as well. Fantastic first effort, head and shoulders above most of the stuff on the radio today. Can't wait for a full-length disc. Really glad that Sam got all that pro-hockey stuff out of the way to move on with what he was meant to do!!!

Format:Audio CD
I have yet to hear this cd, so I can not comment on its recording quality, the craft involved in the mixing, the 'flow' of the tracks from first to last, or the overall merits of the liner notes as they relate a new band's philosphy, etc. However, my son and I (his first concert- eleven years old) saw them warm up for the Tragically Hip last night at the Landmark Theater, in Syracuse NY, and this band rocks. Part Beach Boys, part Ramones, part Pearl Jam (or, potentially, the more obvious Tragically Hip), they were dynamite. They played nearly the entirety of this ep, and, although some of the songs fell too easily into formula, I was excited enough to purchase the cd. I spent the drive home kicking myself for not buying it right there! Will they catch on here in the states? Probably not, sadly. I've been listening to the Hip for eleven years, and still have to constantly answer the question "Tragically who?" Could our bretheren to the north really be that much better informed? (A difficult question, as they did saddle the world with Celine Dion and Alanis...).
