Brilliant lost rock album from the 90's
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Have you ever been excited to hear about a fresh, young band with a stellar debut album, more hooks in a single song than most artists' have across an album, and a bright and long future ahead of them? Well, this was supposed to be the case with NYC's HUNK.

Signed to Geffen in 1995, their A&R rep left the company only weeks before the CD was to come out. It was dead before anyone got to hear it. And we all missed out.1996. Grunge is dead. New rock is Marilyn Manson and Korn, or Hootie and Lillith Fair. Where was groovy rock and power pop?
This band had their fingers on the pulse of something needed, and was about to hit hard with it.Vocals are great, crisp and clear, with a myriad of lyrical subjects. Standouts are the screamingly devotions of love in "Always" reminescent of Weezer's "Pinkerton", the total opposite in "Hard to Say I Love You." Excellent songwriting melodies and grooves in "Rain or Shine" and the hard hitting "You'll See." The production on the CD is wonderful, with subtle keys, biting harmonica and lush guitar and bass. Definetly a guitar-edge record, and the inclusion of the wonderful 12-string bass.The band has great instances of their Beatles influence, mixed with a bit of classic Cheap Trick and the Knack. I enjoy this album 8 years later as much as it did when it first came out. And considering you can get it as cheap as $1, if you're already ordering enough Amazon products to get free shipping, trust me, spend the extra dollar and enjoy a CD which should have been huge."

"They needed a believer not an opportunist. Let's toast a band that never was."
A not-so-well-known album worth the price

"I first picked up this album totally on a whim. I thought that the guy on the cover looked like my grandfather. And that the music would be good.I was right on both counts.First of all, the acoustic feel yet energetic and driven sound pull you right in. The production is better than swell.Second of all, the guy really DOES look like my grandfather. Even my mom says so."
