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!

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...).

3.0 out of 5 stars A good start Aug. 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
If you're looking into buying this record, you should know that it's an EP - there are only six songs, just over 20 minutes of music. The CD starts with a pop-rock bang à la Sloan, "Don't Walk Away Eileen," which might surprise if all you've heard is the second track and current single, "Brother Down." Unfortunately, after two great songs, the CD starts to disappoint. While well-written, the next four tracks are bogged down in monotonous over-production, but if you can get past this, you should enjoy the Inhuman Condition EP - it's a good introduction to Sam Roberts' burgeoning talent.

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!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Indescribable Energy Sept. 15 2002
By Heather
Format:Audio CD
This CD gives off an indescrible energy that feels your body and makes you just want to rock out. Although it is only six songs, it is six songs that you fall in love with the first time you listen to them. Sam Roberts is incredible. He writes all the music himself and with the help of The Secret Weapon, they have put together a CD worth buying. I think anyone who can listen to bands from the Beatles to Incubus and everything inbetween can listen to this CD. It's amazing!
