In a fair and just world...
(5 out of 5 stars)

"everyone would be talking about Aunt Bettys and Michael Knott would be hailed as one of the more gifted songwriters of his generation. As it is, we live in a cruel and spiteful world and the Aunt Bettys have disbanded and Michael Knott continues to toil in obscurity. The band plays unabashed power chord rock star rock while Knott's lyrics gleefully skewer life as we know it. I looked the band up on AMG and was surprised that they labeled Knott as a Christian songwriter. Any religious connotations here must be hidden very deep beneath lyrics dealing with various addictions, particularly the hilarious Addict and the mournful Jane (the 3rd song I know about a drug addict named Jane-hmmmm). Other standouts include Suicide Sex Doll, Little Fighter, Star Baby, & Lush. Double is so sad it makes my stomach hurt. If somehow you've happened across this page, heed this & other reviews and give this CD a try before it disappears."
The greatest unknown cd ever!

"Scorching is the only way I can describe this disc. Mike Knott's characters come screaming through your speakers in all their tortured pain and glory and they don't stop till you're gasping for breath. His lyrics are disturbing but always thought provoking. He writes hooks that will stay with you long after the musics stops and you get the feeling he means it. From the opening lines to Jesus to the end of Rock and Roll your senses are assaulted with no thought of your safety. Mike is joined by Andrew Carter on guitar, Brian Doidge on bass, and Chuck Cummings on drums and they all kick. All songs are great but Jesus, Skinny Bones Jones and Lush especially rock. Lush will take you to places you may not want to go, or maybe you do! Either way you can't go wrong with this disc. Purchase and put the knobs at 11. Enjoy! Also recommend their second album "Ford Supersonic" if you can find it."
Michael Knott is brilliant. Andrew Carter is amazing.

"Listen to this album and the guitar solos alone will give you goosebumps.The songs hit at gut-level and drive straight for the hook every time.If you have any appreciation for artistry, any type of rock, or well-constructed songs, you will absolutely love this album."
