Check out a podcast review of Gaunt's Bricks & Blackouts on Dig Me Out, a weekly podcast dedicated to digging up lost College Rock, Alt Rock, Indie Rock and Hard Rock of the 1990s, one album at a time. http://www.digmeoutpodcast.com
Great songs + top-notch musicianship = Excellent record
(5 out of 5 stars)
"From the opening jumble of feedback, this record lets you know where you stand in relation to the band - preferably a few yards back, and with a good set of earplugs (and I mean that in the most complementary way possible). The songs are crisp, the lyrics deal with subjects we all have a shot at relating to, and the band members definitley know how to play their instruments. The album leaps off on a brisk pace and keeps it up throughout, with the exception of the Title track, a lovely little piano-accented tune. Standout tracks include "97th Tear" and "Dancin' when you're down", a barn-burner complete with horn section that closes the album with a fist. My favorite thing about Gaunt is that they don't seem afraid to keep sounding like Gaunt; a rare trait these days. No, they're not floundering in a rut, they simply don't feel the need to abruptly change sounds to prove to us that they're musicians. That's a mighty good thing."
