This CD rocks! The production is mesmerizing. My Favorites are "Your Direction" and "Communication" and the last one I think it is called "Scence of the Crime".
"Your Direction" starts with a single over driven guitar a-chugga-chugga chow, a- chugga chugga chow, then the rythm guitar cranks up, a chugga chugga chow, a- chugga chugga chow
it cranks. I cannot listen to this one while driving. I must pull over while other concerned drivers pass witnessing my epileptic fist pump and head bang. I usually listen to it next to a homeless camp in golden gate park. The winos really like this one (hey Jeb,its that ratt guy again!); a definite get outta yer' cardboard box and jamm'er.
"Communication" is different. Though formulated like most hard rock, "Communication" is a whole different dimension. Still excellent guitar but the playing is so tight and unified. Superb. Definitely a cut above other rock bands efforts. Vocals are tight and superb.
"Scene" Well the first 2.5 minutes of this song are head and shoulders above any attemps at rock to date (I mean anything). The intro is purely theatrics. A solo guitar repeating a highly over-driven diminishing scale in the upper registers, repeating again and again followed by some kind of timing thing with the drummer, No bass no vocals just the guitar driving high above the tom drum separate then, guitar rolling into another octave they combine and then the vocals "I wanna rock........ but you your there to ro-oll.... I came by your house but you you were'nt alone.............."
You must buy this album. I left a copy of this in my girlfriends car, all she listens to is crappy KOIT soft rock less talk, she picked me up one day and she was totally rocking out to this CD. She won't give it back! I'm a little scared.
