CD Reviews

Bands that really should be remembered more often.

"I accidentally came across this CD when browsing through the 'Sale' section of a music store. I remember the first time I ever heard 'Addict' - 'Monster Side' on the Disturbing Behaviour soundtrack and I was obsessed with it for a long time. Now I listen to the album and regret that the band didn't continue making records. Really too bad. Reminiscent of Silverchair, Bush and even Placebo (I make strange connections), this band still has a very unique style that I have yet to hear repeated by anyone else. Aston's voice is very distinct and just... makes you want to keep listening. Energetic melodies with a subtle dark undertone is what made me love this band. If you're looking for that 'great indie band I haven't yet heard', definitely get it."
Fantastic debut from a talented band.

"Addict's debut album sounds wise beyond its years. It's the sort of album where almost any track could have been lifted for release as a single. Mark Aston's voice is amazing, and the strength of his lyrics is astounding. Nikolai Juel's skills on guitar mean he can make the most tender or jagged sounds with ease, which add great depth to each track. "Nobody Knows", "All Change" and "Caned" rock like there's no tomorrow, whilst "Red Bird" and "Teenage Angel" show a more emotional side. Even this superb album cannot describe the superb live experience of Addict though, as twice as much heart and soul is apparent when they play the live set. Oh, and they dedicated "Monster Side" to me at one gig as I was wearing one of their T-shirts right in front of Mark! The best is definitely yet to come.... I'm already Addict-ed!"
Great debut !

"I first read about Addict in the French music magazine "Rocksound" and there was also a CD with one of the tunes of "Stones". When I listened to the whole album I was sure that I had heard a great new band. I really like Mark Aston's voice, the heavy guitars and the melodic - hard rock. And there's one I can tell you : They're also great live on stage !! Go on like this, I'm waiting for the second album!"
