"I bought up all the copies I could at the time and gave it to my friends. It's a seamless CD of very hard insistent rock, with big girl vocals and slashing power chords. Their debut album was mostly funky country blues stuff, but there was one power song "When 3 is 5", that really hit the target. "Numb" is like a whole album of that kind of song, a real surprise given the tone of the first CD. All the melodies here work, a very friendly set to the ears. This Seattle group is long defunct now, and this was sadly overlooked and lost in the Pearl Jam / grunge deluge at the time."
Why didn't this band become huge?

"How Hammerbox never made it big is a mystery to me. No one I talk to remembers the band or has heard this CD. That's their loss. I love this CD. The roaring, impassioned guitars and Carrie Akres dynamic voice blended together perfectly. The songs were just the right length and tempo to make great rock songs. I agree with another reviewer that this was different than anything else coming out of Seattle at that time and it was so much better. If only we had more than a couple of CDs to remember them by. 12 years later and Hammerbox still blows me away every time I listen to it. If I wear my CD out, I hope I'll still be able to buy a new copy."
Not much to add.

"Everyone is right. If there existed a "Greatest Hits Few Have Ever Heard" compilation "Numb" would be on it.

People do remember, though - Hammerbox reunited for a single, sold-out show at EMP in 2004."
