When you are a freshman in high school you learn to keep out of the rough kids' ways, but one afternoon I was faced with no escape--alone in a room with one of our school's biggest hoodlums. He sat across the art room from me and when he walked in I had already settled in for a few hours of solitude in the room... so an unexpected guest was a bit odd, and especially one like him. I had already plopped my Spacehog cd into the player at the front of the room, and when he walked into the room he looked at me weird and then begun nodding his head. I sighed with relief and sat back and relaxed... a half hour later after the album started winding to a stop the boy with chains and spikes and dyed hair spoke, "What is this a new David Bowie release?" And for the first time since I had purchased the cd I figured out why the vocals were so soothing and comforting.... duh, because they sound like Mr. Bowie himself. I giggled and said "No it's Spacehog."... and he laughed too, more than likely for different reasons than my own. I have owned this album for quite some time and I still hold a few of the songs near and dear to my heart. Spacehog is another one of those artists that just didn't get enough recognition for their aparent talent. I am going to go out on the limb and say that this is one of the quirkiest albums I own... reasons: (1) The vocalist could be mistaken for Bowie by Bowie himself. (2) I don't own any Dismemberment Plan, so they didn't win. (3) "Space is the place where I will go when I am all alone. When nobody calls me on the phone, all alone." They actually believe they are from outer space... or I want to believe this because it would make it a bit more fun.Read more ›

Now I'll admit it, I didn't buy this CD to long ago. Even though this was made back in 1995 I decided why not, I loved the song "In The Meantime" back then and had planned on buying the album, but I always forgot about it when I was in the record store. But anyways lets get down to the CD, Spacehog definetly intended to make their album unique and different from anyone else's and let me tell you they sucessfully did it. The only other sound I can really compare this to is David Bowie and even saying that is a stretch, and though this album could of been better I still applaud them for their bold efforts. "In The Meantime" is a great song though, and if they only followed that formula for the rest of "Resident Alien" it would be a classic. Yes it is true, these guys deserve alot more recognition than they get, hopefully someday they will finally get that fame that seems to be owed to them.

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.

I've had this cd since it first came out and ever since then i have listened to them more and more and now they are my favorite band, i think its because not a lot of people have heard of them so i'm not constantly hearing about them. When the Chinese album came out i had to get it and sure enough it was just as good as resident alien, but for the most part i think that anyone who doesn't like even a little of their music is insane, well that's all i can say right now, except try to like their music even if u don't like it at first give it a few more chances, a band like this doesn't come every day u know.

Spacehog is one of those bands where only a few people have heard of them, and those of us who have are so pissed that everyone else doesn't love them as much as we do! They must be the most underated rock band of the century! I'm a little to young for David Bowie, but this album still rocks...if you like "In the Meantime" then you'll have to love the enire thing! Richard Steel, Johnny Cragg, Royston and Antony Langdon form the perfect mix! Their sound is so unique! BUY THIS CD AND CALL YOUR LOCAL RADIO STATION TO REQUEST THEIR SONGS! You'll love it!

It's fortuitous that I purchased this title when it first came out - I had only heard the track "In the Meantime" which I immediately loved. "Meantime", however, does nothing to illustrate the diversity of talent this band has. Although they have a certain individual tasty style - they aren't defined by it. Their slow dittys are sweet and solid and they rock with such perfect artistry and strength that it's indeed hard to imagine why more people don't know who they are. Oh well, more beauty for me to wallow in. Buy this if you love music.
