"I cannot believe no one has reviewed this album. This Athens band has been around for twelve years, without ever receiving any kind of airplay.
This is on of my favorite CD's. The energy in this recording is just incredible. Mike Mantione displays more heartfelt emotion than any singer I have ever heard that plays a similar type of music.
The music just throbs with honest energy which is oh so hard to find these days. Think Replacements with a harder edge. The only song that is not great is the cover of a Lou Reed called 'I Can't Stand It.'
'She's Dropping the Bomb' should have been a huge hit the way 'Rockaway Beach' should have been big for the Ramones. The lyrics can be really dark especially 'G------- Paul' which deal with a friends death and his mental anguish. But don't let that stop you from getting this.
All the songs absolutely rock and this cd will always hold a special place as one of my absolutely favorites.
THIS IS A FANTASTIC CD. Remember just because you don't hear music played on the 'cookiecutter' radio stations that seem to be everywhere, doesn't mean it isn't good. Half the fun is seeking out bands like this. Every once in a while you can luck up and find a 'diamond in the rough'."
