CD Reviews

Quirky "instrumetal" music a la Champs and Karp
J. H. Trecker | Chicago, IL USA | 12/27/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"With Joe Preston departed (Melvins, Thrones), C-Average is back to being a two-piece and this LP shows some of the holes. And, the three covers (ZZ Top, Sonics, Pink Floyd/Queen medley) make this disc thin on originals. However, more than their instrumetal contemporaries the Champs, C-Average shows restraint and craft in their songwriting -- the stuff rocks because they don't waste time trying to dazzle you with their mastery of the Myxolidian scale or whatnot. Also, C-Average is more a fusion of the Who and Vocokesh than the AC/DC-Sabbath riff the cover (and song titles) might lead you to believe. This isn't a "must-have" sorta thing, but it does sound purty good. Check out their 7" (thru) KRS' Single of the Month club for a more cohesive fusion of the C-Average musical ideal."
Fire up your El Camino!

"I've just slipped into my acid washed armor... slid my long black comb into my back pocket... and now I'm ready to rock. My C-Average disc slides in and the riffs erupt like a cannister of hot biscuit dough... These guys have managed to channel 1972 like none before.... ripping through a twisted cache of dirty metal like a car full of retarded 15 year olds on crank. C-Average has the power to alter your physiology..laying on the beef double-decker style. John and the crew lean into every turn like they built the track...Heavy like T-bone salad baby, C-Average is the ticket you've been looking for. Put your Sabbath T-shirt on and grease down that banana seat...the cards are on the table and you've been dealt a metal hand."
