This is an intense punk band with some actual talent !!!

"Don't let my my words influence your possible purchase of this album (or any other album by China Drum);however, I will tell you that you won't find another punk album with the combination of hard-core drama and shear beauty that this album achieves. The well-written lyrics deserve an "A" also. Move the outta the way all of you MTV "generation X", punk-wanna-be, novelty bands!! China Drum is the real deal......"Self Made Maniac" deserves a perfect rating because the album provides a variety of styles and spontenuity within each song. Check out "fiction of life" and "all i wanna be". This is a hard core punk band;however, the lyrics and instrumentation are clear (as well as beautiful)...illustrating an ACTUAL talent (were as some "punk" bands get off on nonsense screaming, and lyrics about beating someone up at a party). Check China Drum out...for your sake!"

"This is what it's all about; since the Clash vacated their crown there's been a void in the music scene that's been fleetingly filled by a few bands, early Public Enemy, Janes Addiction, Living Colour, Nirvana and Manic St Preachers to name a few, however some shockingly bad attempts at "punk" have been shifting millions of units to the kids, god knows why when there's a band like China Drum out there, if they don't make it then there's no hope for this generation. This albumn is faultless, "fiction of life" is an anthem for the late nineties, "Down by the River", "60 Seconds" what a record, and I foolishly thought that their cover of "Wuthering heights" couldn't be bettered before the millenium, well they've written a whole albumn to prove me wrong."
