Synopsis

Amazon.com
Recorded in the north of England in a cold garage by a batch of 20-year-olds before they'd ever played a lick live, Bring It On displays a remarkable maturity, quoting from a musical source that only folks twice their age are privy to. The insularity of the remote garage removes these lads from the territory of their bombastic Brit-rock peers, freeing them to seek inspiration beyond the shores of their isle. Strains of American groove rock (think Little Feat or Dr. John) run throughout: the opening track, "Get Miles," lopes along on a bourbon-infused jam and Ben Ottewell's deep, gravelly voice, and "78 Stone Wobble" sounds like a long-lost Doobie Brothers hit. But Gomez aren't mere revivalists. Their take on American boogie provides a stale genre with youthful verve. --Tod Nelson

Gomez are the best
C. M. Hughes | Portland, OR | 02/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album earned Gomez fame back in 1998 when they won the esteemed Mercury Music award with it.

They have been coined all variations of 'blues-folk-rock', and loads more to boot. I think their sound is fantastically original, and their albums have gone from strength to strength.

Bring it on is the corner stone in their outstanding portfolio, and is a marvelous achievement. I strongly believe that everyone needs Gomez in their lives, or at the very least should own this album."
