CD Reviews

Fantastic underated album deserves a hearing
glidedj | UK | 11/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I worked at BMG some years ago and heard this. Frankly it is a crying shame this band did not pick up more attention. The album is on the sad side, however every track is solid and the album is one of my favourites. If you like Coldplay, Nirvana and Sheryl Crow - which I do - there is a good chance you'll like this. It is on the light side musically with loads of drum loops and relatively slight music - especially compared with Nirvana obviously. But there are loads of good songs that bear many repeated listens. To be critical some of the mixes and production could have been better and more natural / live, however most of the songs would sound good with just an acoustic and a voice.... 100000% better than most of the rubbish in the UK 'elect a pop star' charts."
Quality pop from Irland
Torven | hamburg, germany | 12/13/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Thinking of Irland means to me thinking of high quality in merging different music styles. So does the young dublin band "Junkster". What we have here is that sort of pop of the countryman brothers and sisters Corr from Dundalk. But while the four Corrs put their pop into a traditional irish folk dress, Junkster provides a little more "danceability" by the use of electronic sounds. At least the underlayed grooves will force you to seesaw unrestrained to the music. The programming reminds of trip-hop, but - very necessary - no guitar will be crushed. So the fan of real handmade music will be pleased. To me the voice of lead singer O'Neill is more an average one. Not very mighty, not very unique but just beautiful. You need exactly this sort of voice to put ballads like "the only one" into the right dress. And this dress fits - an uncompromising beautiful ballad with a dripping melody has been presented. But you'll find not only ballads on this album. But after all the threshold to rock will be passed just a little. So it is a shallow album, but easy to listen. Certainly it will claim the CD-Player of the friends of this genre for a long time. I've only wished that all this hadn't been that polished. But it belongs to every better record collection - no doubt."
