Synopsis

Amazon.com
The loving memory most frequently conjured here is Led Zep's "When the Levee Breaks." That unparalleled mix of Delta blues, multi-tracked acoustic/electric guitar invention, and thunderous Bonham stomp is all over "The Oaf," a towering single that provides an instant entree to rock radio for the made-in-Canada, based-in-Boston quartet. There's not a weak track to be heard on an album loaded with standouts like "Blown Wide Open," "How Would You Know," and likely second single "That Song." --Jeff Bateman

Still one of my favorite rock albums. Every single song on the album is a rock and roll gem. They have their own sound, so it's hard to compare them to another band. Suffice to say this is the best debut rock album in the last fifteen years. Damn shame they never followed up with a second effort. If they did, I'd buy it without fear of being disappointed.

Classic? Could be?
R. Queen | West Virginia | 09/23/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Big Wreck are getting their start in much the same way Zeppelin did 30 odd years ago. You don't hear much about them on the radio, (which sticks to much less challenging fare), or see them on television. Everyone I know has heard about this album from someone else. Like a single bottle of good whisky at a poor man's party, Big Wreck is passed around, to be enjoyed by All. And, like Zeppelin, the first album is a strong debut from this new band. Don't get me wrong though, these guys are not Zeppelin clones. The music is all their own. The album is terrific. Can't wait to see what Big Wreck does next."
THE BEST ROCK & ROLL IN YEARS
R. Queen | 10/20/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the best rock and roll album out now, and in some years. The first song on the album The Oaf starts out with a soft guitar part and explodes into a great rock song. That Song follows with what I think is the best lyrics on the album. Example is as follows: So I always get nostalgic with that song/ But in my room it's forced/ It has to be in some car across the street/ And I always catch the back of your head in the crowd/ But don't turn around/ It's never you and you'll ruin those memories. Now if that doesn't perk up you ears and make you listen, than I don't know what will. Even though I think every song on this album is a instant classic, the following really sticks out. Blown Wide Open, is a powerful song both in music and lyrics. Another one that stands out is Fall Through The Cracks, with a bassline and kick drum beat that will put a pounding in your heart. The other one is Prayer which is just plan and simple Rock & Roll. I recommend everyone go get In Loving Memory Of..."
