More Distinctive Means Better

"The 2nd album from southern rock outfit Brother Cane has much of the same elements as their debut: bluesy wah-wah inflected riffs, "High Speed Freezin'"; tales of hard times and desolation, "Intempted"; and singer Damon Johnson's deep throated pain: "Voice Of Eujena." Here it's just done better and in a more distinctive style of a band finding their sound. A hint of grunge creeps in the haunting "And Fools Shine On" and the very AIC influenced "Rise On Water." This in no way lessens the impact of the material and the overall somber mood surrounding it. A solid second record from an underrated band."
Awesome Band, Dearly Missed

"I've loved this band from their start in 93", with their self titled album, "Brother Cane". I live about 100 miles north of Memphis, where Brother Cane originated, and I had the pleasure of seeing them live at the Pyramid (one of Memphis' best show arenas) with Van Halen (fronted by Sammy Hagar) as the headliner. Brother Cane was on thier "Seeds" tour at the time (about 1996). I'd have to say Brother Cane ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! Not many people could still stand up for Van Halen (although they still rocked equally). Unfortunately, Brother Cane split up after their third evenly matched release, titled "Wishpool", (although "Seeds" was still a cut above the other two albums). I would love to see Brother Cane make a reunion, as many of their fans would. They are dearly missed. They had a sound of thier own which is a mix of Collective Soul and Soundgarden/Audio Slave, with a little Nirvana grunge added for texture. This is a must have CD that sets an awesome mood at any gathering or just to rock on down the highway! TRY IT, YOU'LL LIKE IT!"
One of the Best Surprises...EVER!

"Whenever I suggest this album to a customer at the music store I work at, they always purchase it after listening to it...and with good reason. This is one of the best rock albums of the 90's. You can compare it to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Metallica...whoever- "Seeds" can stand up to any of them."And Fools Shine On" is a simple, catchy single that was heard on radio stations across the country, as well as in the movie Halloween 6. However, the album doesn't build around just that one song. Each track holds its own, and the album flows together beautifully. "Kerosene" is an excellent rocker with a great Damon Johnson riff. "Rise On Water," the strongest track on the album, highlights the strength of Johnson's emotional vocals and songwriting skills. "20/20 Faith" features another excellent guitar riff that very nicely flows into a low bass lick. "Voice of Eujena" is an excellent heart-filled ballad that whose guitar part was ever-so-cleverly borrowed by Marcy Playground on their debut album years later.This is one of the best albums made within the '90's. It is excellent, exciting, pure rock n' roll. Brother Cane would be far better known if the music industry were not dominated by one-hit wonder pop artists. Damon Johnson is a genius- that's why Ted Nugent hired him to lead the reunion of the Damn Yankees- which should be very interesting. If enough people hear what he can do, that will break through as "Seeds" should have. This album is essential for the collection of any rock fan- you will be as pleasantly surprised as I was!"
