CD Reviews

Peerless bluesy rock
08/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"BHT are one of those rare things - a band who can create consistantly excellent albums without being repetitive or gimmacky. "Neckbreaker" is one of those songs you can play over and over yet never grow tired of. This album shows a little more acoustic guitar layered in beneath Todd's expected fine electric guitar, but the sound remains pure and simple. How a three-piece can creat such wonderfully rich sound to go with their interesting lyrics, soulful singing, and great grooves I'll never know. Buy this if you appreciate excellent, mature, but never overproduced or bland rock and roll."
Put Simply, Best Band of the Past Two Decades!!

"Mohr is one of the best writers. It saddens me to see that in all the years BHTM has been playing they are not bigger than they are now. But that is also good, because they are one of the best bands to see live, and small venues are always the way to see a great band. This album is one of BHTM's best album's. I suggest getting any of their CD's and you will not be sorry for diong it (Except "Another Mayberry")."
NOT QUITE MY STYLE
HANS D HARMS | runaway bay, QLD Australia | 05/29/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It is hard for me to give a fair review of this CD at it is not in a style I favour. The guitar playing is subdued and the flavour is more folk/rock than blues/rock. The singing is very good, some of the songs are excellent and within the folk/rock style this is a very good CD. However, my favourites are guitar/blues/rock orientated CD's and this is not one of those.
There is enough depth here to suggest a few more listens may reveal other aspects of this CD that at the moment escape me.P.S. 6 month and many listens later, this has grown on me as expected. These songs get into your head and leave an impression. Killer hooks and an understated delivery."
