One Big Fine Debut
underacheiver2000 | Staten Island, NY United States | 01/09/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a really incredilble album from a band that was never given a chance. The only reason I ever heard of Darla Hood was because they were included in a Warner Bro's compilation right before the release of Big Fine Thing. The 1st single I heard was 99% Bulletproof, it was how I feeling at the time (shortlived but good just the same)and I was hooked. I could not find the album for 3 months after it's release (I live in NYC) so thats just beyond bad distribution.
Every song on this CD is strong, though a few stand out as truley exceptional, "I Got Pictures" has some of the funniest lyrics on the album as well as being the only rock and roll song I know of to chronicle mafia turncoat Sammy "the bull" Gravano. "New York City" captures the isolation of a city boy trapped in upstate New York without a damn thing to do (except write music and little else). "99% Bulletproof is just an awsome rocker that can peel the paint off a 68 Camaro. Buy this album and share it with your friends, Darla Hood deserve the recognition (even if they are no longer a band)."
A talented band that needs to be heard

"Just great rock n roll, not commercial [stuff]. Well crafted songs with a heavy riff. This isnt music that is made to excatly fit into a certain mold, not music that is made to just make money. I have been trying to get people to listen to this band for years and once they do they dig it. I like a variety of music. These guys know how to write music and play it. Please all we need to support talent like this, not the [stuff] played on radio today.the Prisoner"
Not enough recognition but worthy of it

"I am afraid Darlahood falls under the category of one of those bands that make good music but their record company fails to promote them and help them be successful.This is a very good cd with well crafted songs and a delightful little song called "RSVP." It is more or less a guitar rockin' song with some lyrics thrown in. That is kind of unheard of with the type of music they play(alternative guitar rock, let's call it). If you want a comparison, they remind me of Brother Cane, Goo Goo Dolls, and some Collective Soul thrown in for good measure. This cd came out in 1996 and do not think they are a band anymore. That is a shame, record companies do not know what to keep or throw out the window. This"
