Reaching For the Sugar
on June 4, 2001
After hearing "The Oaf", I had high hopes for this CD. Unfortunately, the rest of the tunes don't live up to the opening cut. The second track "That Song" could have been a winner but ended up droning off in endled repetition. While the members of Big Wreck have the ability to perform, they seem to lack the capability of writing top notch songs.
While some reviewers mention some flavor of Led Zeppelin or The Who in Big Wreck's music, my impression is that the influences are actually second hand, by way of Canada's Big Sugar.
If you like the song "The Oaf", buy any Big Sugar CD instead of this one. Your ears will thank you for it.
