Truly Remarkable
Brit | USA | 10/16/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard of Gowan because he was a member of Styx and I was really getting into their music (this was obviously recently. So, one day, while discussing several serious matters with a fellow Styx fan, we got to talking about Gowan and she convinced me to buy "Strange Animal". I did and I was blown away. Gowan is such a talented artist and he has such a knack for catchy melodies. As a teenager from the US, I think that everyone should at least be introduced to his music, because it is so spectacular. All together, Gowan is one of my all-time favorite artists, and what he does is truly an art-form. If you're looking for a great album for any occasion, get Gowan."

"I love this is a classic and a must have for anyone who likes 80's pop. Not only was it great for its time but songs like criminal mind could still get airplay today if released.
All in all one of my favorite albums. Oh and now that Gowan is the new frontman for Styx, hopefully he'll be rockin it out for years to come."

"Gowan is by far one of the best artists to have ever walked the face of the earth, NOT JUST IN CANADA, but all over this globe. Gowan was the first musician I started listening to, and was my very first tape, I was 4. I'm 23 now and though I like other bands such as NIN, I still listen to Gowan and find Strage Animal to be one of the most original albums ever made and very different compared to the other junk music that other 80's bands were releasing. Gowan was not a typical 80's band, his lyrics spoke of war, the potential darkness of the human mind, and human suffering, while other bands were singing: 'Everybody Wang Chung Tonight', 'The Locomotion' ,'Jump For My Love' and other boppy meaningless songs such as these. My favorite tracks are 'Guerilla Soldier', 'Keep the Tension On', 'Burning Torches of Hope', and my ultimate favorite of any of Gowan's songs is 'A Criminal Mind', which is one of the best and most unique songs to have ever been made. Strange Animal is a masterpiece anyone who finds music important should have."
