Guano Apes' "Proud Like A God" contains a selection of excellent songs that rock with real power and authority. "Open Your Eyes" - probably the best track here - is a raw, thundering chunk of thrashing rock. The music on this track is powerful and could overwhelm a lesser singer, but the lead vocalist easily out-shrieks the instruments, to fantastic effect.
The rest of the CD is hit-and-miss. "Maria," "Rain," "Never Born," and "Scapegoat" are all well-done songs that vary between hard-rocking anthems and slower ballads. "Lord of the Boards," "Crossing the Deadline," "We Use the Pain," and "Get Busy" aren't very good at all. The jaw-droppingly stupid lyrics on "Lord of the Boards" (regarding an alien snowboarder) are some of the more asinine lyrics I've heard in a song in quite some time.
"Tribute" is an enjoyable song, at least for the first 5 minutes. The final 4 minutes consist of random noise from the various instruments, including the lead singer. It sounds like some sort of terribly misguided attempt at free-form rock/jazz noodlings (complete with plenty of feedback), and it's completely unlistenable.
It isn't a completely bad CD, but with about 50% good and 50% somewhat less than good, it's not really worth the price of admission.

It was about 3:00 AM, me and my friend were down on my pull out bed couch. I'm not sure what he was doing, probably sleeping, and i was rummaging through his large binder of cd's. i came across "Guano Apes", whom he had earlier told me about. I was beginning to get frusterated because i hadn't come upon one cd that i'd liked yet, but then the guano apes album changed it all.
After the first song, "Open Your Eyes", i was immediately sucked in. Yes, it was weird hearing a woman rap (or what appeared to atleast sound like a rap), and at first, well, i'd thought she was a man by how she sounded. However, the rap like song was somewhat catchy, and the more altern. rock styled chorus was even more catchy. Into the second track, at first, i thought that it sounded alot like an Enya song, but then surprised me as Sandra (lead singer) launced into screaming accompanied by heavy guitars.
Well, to make a long story short, this album put me on an emotional roller coaster, but one that i enjoyed. You'd think with all of the different styles of music that are explored on this album you might not like most of it, but the guano apes have a way of making it all sound the same yet different.
The only reason i give this album four stars is because over time and much listening the songs get old somewhat quickly. However, still a great album and worthy of the cost!!!

I've been an extreme fan of the Guano Apes since their beginning, and "Proud Like a God", in my opinion, is their greatest work. When you first play it, you're hit with the energy that is Sandra Nasic in the song "Open Your Eyes". The album is set up in a way that if you are to listen to it straight through, the tracks go from soft ballads to hard-hitting straight of rock. Sandra's vocal abilities are best heard in "Proud Like a God"-she can yell, and still sings softly in songs like "Never Born". I recommend this album to everyone, due to the ever-present fact that the Guano Apes are crossover and so many styles of music are in this one CD.

This is a really great disc. Most of the vocals are brilliant and the instuments are all played with style. The best tracks on the album is probably 'Open Your eyes' (it has the best lyrics aswell), 'Wash it Down' (This is the loudest track), 'Lords of the Boards', and the quieter 'Rain'. All of the other tracks are great aswell, but then you hit a dissapointment on the second last track 'Tribute'. Why they didn't just leave this off the album I don't know. Nobody I know likes a 9 minute track, that has about 2 minutes of pointless moaning. Apart from that, this is a great album by a excellent Band that is well worth the money.

I'm Italian, and I saw their concert in Milan on 9 - 10 - 1999, because I was curios about this strange band. I wanted to know their music better, because I only knew their hit "open your eyes", and decide later to buy this record or not. I was so enthusiastic about their music that I bought their album and the cd-single too. I can't describe their music, but I try to do it. It's a mix of punk-rock, techno, hip-hop but with 140 bps. And I love it. Sandra has an incredible voice, and is also the writer of the words of the songs. The best song of the album are: Open your eyes, Lords of the boards (very punk), Wash it down (quite techno for the drums) and Maria ( a very beautyful slow song). All this in two words? OK! BUY IT!
