"Not sure if this band is still around, I picked up this CD in a bargain bin at a record shop in Lausanne, Switzerland. It's amazing the things I found while living there. Anyway, the music is sometimes raucous, sometimes controlled, but behind it all lies a fervent pulsing of outrage at the ills of society.Sometimes this plays out in the lead singer's voice wailing at its very end. The last few notes scratching their way into existence. While other times, the rhythm section provides the almost sexual potency. The lyrics are similar in that they are sometimes brutally honest and frank while at other times being obtuse and overly symbolic. What holds this mixture of styles together is the forthrightness with which it is executed. It's easy to tell that the band felt what they were doing in a way that seems all but lost in this manufactured pop world.This album grew on me over several listens. I bought it as a fluke for 3 francs while overseas and it has become one of the treasures of my collection."
The biggest band of Shasta County

"I grew up in Redding, so I feel a connection to Harvester. Though this is the only album I've heard by them, I conclude that they are masters. My brother bought it from Bog Bean Books and Music (the local used music store) and I loved it from the moment I heard it. "It's Been a Long Day" gets stuck in my head a lot. Not that it is a bad thing, considering the song is great. "Shasta County" is a nice homage to my home county and does quite well, though it is only an instrumental. Other tracks are great as well from one of the few alterna-country bands I've heard."
