(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me just say that Tod A. is God and this album proves it. What a swagger! What an sneer! What a voice! This album will bring you up when you're down and keep you up when you're up. I read a review saying the songs are like little bastard children dancing on the devil's grave. Can I hear an amen, brothers and sister?"
Indie rock at its best, a worthy 5-star

"When it comes to creating sonic ambience, exercising inner demons, revealnig the most tender feelings ,and mixing exotic musical styles and influences, few artists come close to Tom Waits; the boys from Firewater came pretty damn close, very very close. The record opens with two powerful tracks: "Some Strange Reaction" and "Bourbon and Division". The two openers have a near perfect mixture of rock, folk and Eastern European influences. The first two tracks are like a squeaky old elevator that takes you down to a dark, bleak, industralized but nevertheless romantic underground world. The songs in this disk celebrated loveable losers, weird characters, the beauty and the tranquillity in the most unlikely places, spirituality of atheists, hope from despairs, and all the insignificant details of the world ignored by the pop culture. A very good CD indeed, highly recommended. If you enjoy this CD, may I also suggest Mule Variation by Tom Waits and Malediction by Botanica."

"I stumbled across firewater at, where their cover of "another perfect catastrophe" was being played...I had never heard of the band and came here hoping for other .WAV's of their music. The previous review of this album is pretty dead-on, except that I think it minimizes the russian influence. Also, I was caught thinking that this is reminiscent of Tom Waits, but with a melody. After checking the publication date ('96) I was surprised that I had never previously heard of these guys-- this particular disk is awesome. My own criteria for buying a disk is that I like at least 2 songs...although I bought this one "unseen". It was a good gamble, I love this entire disk. It is my favorite disk so far of '98, and would enthusiastically recommend it."
