CD Reviews

WE NEED MORE CRACK THE SKY---THIS ISN'T ENOUGH
centr1@aol.com | Bowie MD | 08/28/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's good to see the Crack fans from around the country putting their comments here. I thought i was alone. I am fortunate enough to still live in Maryland and have seen Crack the Sky in concert over 20 times going back to 1978. For those of you not in the Baltimore area the first 4 albums can still be obtained on CD---right now they are only available through Record and Tape traders outlets in the Balt area--each cd contacts 2 albums. One has the first album and White Music-the other has Safty in Numbers and Animal Notes. There is also a live Cd release that has excerpts from a live radio broadcast on Wbab radio in Ny mixed with cuts from Live Sky--if you want any of these CD's --write be and I can pick them up for ya and send them to you. Nothin to hard for a Crack fan. Cya-Billy"
Hearing this band again, is a blast!

"I saw these guys at the Tower Theater in Philly in '77 or '78. . .even got taped on their live album when the band announced it was recording live with a very audible, "alllllright!" Crack The Sky came along at the same time as Angel, The Cars, Meatloaf and Bowie was starting his dark trilogy of Low and soon to be released Hero's and later Scarry Monsters. Crack the Sky has withstood the test of time and its music is as relative to the 90's, as it was in the late 70's, early 80's. The only drawback on this cd is that "Safety in Numbers" is not on it. I agree with all of the other fans. . .this is the greatest band that never got past regional status. They also put on a terrific show and sound great live."

"A nearly perfect, representative collection from the greatest unknown band ever. Beautifully showcases their songwriting, tightness, and musicianship. An excellent starting point to becoming a CTS fan, it's also a great cd to have if it's all you can find. If you like your music "balanced" this is for you - CTS writes listenable, catchy tunes that still features great technical musicianship. Their music is both intelligent and visceral. Their stuff is usually complicated with a lot of time skips and complex arrangements but still easy to listen to. They are also a tremendously powerful live band."
