"764-Hero, made up of John Atkins (of Hush Harbor and Ugly Cassanova fame) and Polly Johnson (who runs the label Suicide Squeeze) are the two most talented musicians I have ever heard. Their simple progressions, slow rhythms and occasional thrust into harder, more intense rock ("Loner Getaway Car")can and will convince you they are the best-kept secret in Washington state. This album was recorded by Steve Wold in June of 1996. The cover was designed by Tae Won Yu (from Kicking Giant). 764-Hero's first seven-inch, "Now You're Swimming," is a good introduction to this band (on Suicide Squeeze)--it prepares you for such beautiful, achingly-sweet, emotional songs like "Sick of Apologizing" and "The Way A Leash Feels." Every note John hits and every lyric he sings is incredibly moving--Polly is an amazing drummer; she takes the simplest beat and makes it entrancing ("Gospel Truth"). This band is what every other band wishes they could be--they are original, talented musicians who make music enjoyable. I'd give this album ten stars if I could!"
It's Ok but...

"So I was a big fan of Hush Harbor, and this has good stuff, but it's not 5-star quality. I mean come on, Built to Spill is 5 stars. This just needs more hooks. It tries, but it just doesn't quite get me there."
