CD Reviews

Modern rock at its best
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you thought "Buzz" was good - check out "Bottle Rocket." It's different but, oh, so good! David Bach's bass keeps the undercurrent going while Tony Palacios's guitar riffs continue to highlight why he's a continual favorite in hm magazine's Guitarist of the Year. Jamie Rowe's vocals are rougher and grungier than the older albums but in the same vein as "Buzz." Karl Ney keep the beat on drums as always but is, as usual, exceptional. The production on the album is sooooo good - hats off to Steve Taylor, who continues to prove himself as not just a producer BUT one of the best. The title cut "Bottle Rocket" reminds me that "this little light of mine - I'm going to let it shine" can't even capture the blaze of what really burns in the hearts of believers everywhere. Sample; you'll come back for more Guardian."
Very tight and modern sounding

"When I first bought Bottle Rocket about a year ago, for about 6 months it was pretty much all I listened too. It's that good! It's alot tighter than their other cd's, and Jamie sings alot less grungy. But the musicianship, and songwriting is still just as good if not better than their older cd's. Songs like Revelation, and Savation still have that live intesity that makes Guardian such a great band. And other songs like Are we Feeling Comfortable Yet, and Coffee Can have awsome guitar effects that really fit nicely in the songs. The Guitar playing is great as usual. Tony is without a doubt one of the best guitar players in the world. And Jamie is still a power house on the vocals, pouring out emotion in catchy songs. David's bass playing is also exelent. It really seems to fit the music on this CD. Karl's drumming is alot simpler on Bottle Rocket than on any other Guardian album. But this just adds to the tightness of the music. Sometimes the hardest thing for a drummer to do is play easy drum parts that make the songs sound good. An all around great CD! If you're a Nirvana, STP, Smashing Pumpkins, or Soundgarden fan, or if you're just a fan of great rock music, get this CD!!Matt < +?+"
So good, you wouldn't guess they are a Christian band.

"If you like the energy and sounds of Green Day and Foo Fighters, you will like Guardian's Bottle Rocket as well. I have been hearing it on This CD is strong, top to bottom!"
