5.0 out of 5 stars Off the beaten path May 5 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first learned about Spacehog through the news. The singer, Royston Langdon (aka "The Luckiest Man Alive") married Liv "Arwen Evenstar" Tyler in 2001. This made headlines at the time, as it was incontrovertible proof that even the homeliest of guys can hit the jackpot every now and then.
Three things strike me about this album:
First, is it quirky? Yep. Off the beaten path? Definitely. But underneath this somewhat bizarre album is a collection of strong and well crafted songs written by people who are quite talented songsmiths.
Secondly, they're very well produced. They have a great sound, and whoever the producer is deserves an award. The band's strengths are played up. The mix is just right. The sound they get out of their instruments is simply phenomenal. It's perfect for their style of music.
Thirdly, the singer, Royston Langdon, has a strangly intriguing voice. I'm not sure it would carry well in a more traditional band, but it's perfect for what Spacehog does.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pigs in spaaaaaaace. April 4 2004
By H3@+h
Format:Audio CD
Though I'm sure they're mostly thought of as a one-hit-wonder, man what a hit. "In The Meantime" has got to be one of the coolest songs of the mid-90's. After that the songs aren't as good, but still similar, and mostly interesting. Actually I think "Cruel To Be Kind" was a minor hit as well. Their sound is definitely retro-glam, like a "David Bowie" or "Elton John" influenced 90's alt-rock band. By now this disc is probably in every used store across the country, and well worth the price you could get it for. After a few listens, you'll realize "Space Is The Place".

2.0 out of 5 stars Hog Wash, Nov. 25 2003
By Hilow
Format:Audio CD
No, I am not French but the majority of this recording SUCKS in ANY language. I have owned this cd for 9 years and I never get past the 1st song "In the Meantime" the rest of em' come on; immediately I lose interest. Faster than a blind date with your mom.
"In the Meantime" is this CDs only saving grace. Save your pennies, this one is hog wash!

5.0 out of 5 stars Glam's back -- in the best way. April 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
If you're a fan of old Bowie, Sweet, Mott the Hoople, even Cheap Trick, you'll love this CD -- as well as the rest of the Spacehog catalog. Here's a band with all the anthem-y feel of Glam classics like "All The Young Dudes," and the sense of humor of, say, Kiss. (Their lyrics occasionally bring to mind songs like Sweet's "AC/DC" as well.) The melodies are catchy without a trace of bubblegum, and Royston Langdon's voice can only be described as cool -- with the added bonus of being tuneful. It's a little Bowie, a little Jagger, and unlike anything you've heard before.
The band has talent, too. The compositions are always creative (if occasionally a little too Bowie-like, which never bothers me!) and neither of the Langdons ever seem to miss a note.
If you yearn for the days of cranking, loud, FUN rock-n-roll that has both a sense of fashion and a sense of humor, look no further. Spacehog's your band.

5.0 out of 5 stars This band doesnt get enough attention... April 12 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is an overall excellent album. Hits like "In the Meantime", "Space is the place", and "cruel to be kind" will get you adddicted. And this album has the quality of all greats - all the non-hits are incredible songs also. They have a trademark Brit-pop influence to them in the melodies and especially in the vocals. They have mastered the art of chromatic melodies which is very rare. There is not one track on this album not worth listening to. I have every song downloaded onto my computer, just like the Smashing Pumpkins album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. I also highly reccomend that.

4.0 out of 5 stars A few good songs. Nov. 21 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
I have had this album for a long time, I could not toss it out because it has some very good songs on it. I don't like the whole album, but these songs make up for the others:
In the meantime, star side, Last dictator & Zeroes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overwhelmingly Average Aug. 27 2002
Format:Audio CD
Like many folks who own this CD I suppose, I got this on the strength of the single "In The Meantime". Well, I just dusted off the album after letting it age for a couple years, and I have to say it's totally average and unimpressive. These guys are, <ahem>, not exactly brimming with originality or creativity, simply solid musicians who had a few ideas, a good producer, and an inability to hide - or depart from - their obvious musical influences. The Bowie-esque vocals on most songs (especially "In The Meantime"), the lyric lines and ideas lifted from Bowie's "Space Oddity" in "Spacehog", the Stones'"sympathy for the devil" hoo-hoo's on "Never Coming Down Part I", and the Simon and Garfunkel - sounding "To Be A Millionaire" are just some of the blatantly derivative touches gracing this ho-hum collection of tunes. Life's simply too short to listen to CD's such as this, when there are so much better things to listen to - like the original Bowie, Stones, Simon and Garfunkel, etc! (Or standouts in any other musical genre for that matter.) Let this sleeping pig lie.
