Product Description

Amazon.ca

The second major-label album from hard-hitting Saskatoon rock trio Wide Mouth Mason could as well be titled We've Got a Wah-Wah Pedal and We're Going to Use It, at least with respect to the first three numbers. However, once the windy blues-rock clichés of "Why," "Alone," and "Burn" are out of the way, Where I Started really begins. The band's poppier instincts come to the fore on "Companion (Lay Me Down)," "Half a Chance," "Empty Seat," and the melancholy closer, "Falling Down." Stylistically ambitious tunes like "Sugarcane," which works in a reggae rhythm, and the sea-shanty-ish "King of Poison" give the album further heft. As on the group's debut, Shaun Verreault manages to redeem even the more pedestrian material with Velcro-like riffs ("Old," for instance), while the rhythm section of Safwan Javed (drums) and Earl Pereira (bass) serve the time-honoured blues-rock-band tradition of matching the front man's vocal and guitar-playing intensity. Where I Started shows some evidence of growing pains, but comes out all right in the long run. --Shawn Conner

Format: Audio CD
I just have to say that Wide Mouth Mason is absolutely the best band there is! They're my fave! Where I Started is a terrific follow-up CD to their self-titled one. I should know. I have both and listen to them all the time. Every single song on both CDs are absolutely wonderful. Shaun Verreault's mesmorizing voice just sweeps me into another world, as it would to anyone. Anyway, I really recommend this CD to anyone who likes alternative and/or rock music. I may not be too old (I'm only 18) but I have an ear for good music. Wide Mouth Mason is the band I measure every other band against... and believe me, none of the others even come close to the talent and greatness Wide Mouth Mason. Oh, one more thing. Wide Mouth Mason is absolutely terrific in concert! I saw them in London, ON at the Western Fair in September 1999.
