The Best Band You NEVER Heard Of!
Nathan Berkheiser | Palmyra, PA United States | 03/07/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"A Friend of mine happened accross this CD in 1996. Little did he know what he'd discovered. This CD is utterly brilliant. The metal world has been in a downward spiral since the era of grunge. During that time many metal bands were overlooked. Which in the music biz usually means "goodbye career". That's exactly what happened with L.S.D.(Life Sex & Death). The music definately has a slite 80's hair band sound but with an edge Poison, Skid Row and Jackal never quite got. "school's for fools" is kinda there radio friendly tune(though it got any air time). "Big Black Bush" is a funny song and I'll leave it at that. "Hey Buddy" is a great laid back tune with a great vocal track that is almost as sentimentally touching as the last track on the album. "Rise Above" is by far the greatest mix of piano and deep down,heart felt crooning that I have ever heard. It makes the album ten times better than it would have been without it. If you can listen to this song and not shed a tear you're a better man than I. All and all this album is missing from everyone's collection. It's a travesty,really. Buy this album. If you happen to have been a member of this band... GET BACK TOGETHER. We need more albums like this in the world."
Life Sex & Death - 'The Silent Majority' (Warner Brothers)

(3 out of 5 stars)
"I give it 3 1/2 stars.'The Silent Majority' was apparently this band's sole release.Some who remember this group would likely think they're a bit strange.Pretty much because of their mentally-challenged lead vocalist(who rarely showers)- 'Stanley'.Heard that he often has conversations with himself.When I first heard this disc,I was decently impressed with just how good most,if not all the fourteen cuts actually turned out to be.More or less just well written&played uptempo rock 'n roll.Tracks that had me pulling out the CD repeated times were "School's For Fools",the kick-ass "Tank"(anyone remember the video for this song?),"F**kin' Sh** Ass","Big Black Bush" and "Hey Buddy".Wanted to mention that I got to see the band play at a club,that drew maybe thirty people that night.I remember running into 'Stanley' before the show.He is creepy!!Don't think he's faking it either.About half way through their set,I was standing smack dead center in the front of the stage.What does 'Stanley' do?Start running his right hand through my hair.Ugh!!Music here is worth while just the same."
The vocals are gonna make the decision for you.

"This album really grows on you, once you get used to Stanley's vocals. He kinda sounds Leon Redbone (the guy who did the Mr. Belvedere theme song, remember it?) a bit (especially on the opening Blue Velvet Moon) but once you get into the meat of the album, you realize his vocals actually complement the very modern 90's production and themes of this album. The band tackles all the usual subjects (sex, drugs and rock and roll) but adds a slightly demented twist (again, mostly via Stanley). The big boost to all this is the extremly talented band, who run rings around most bands of this genre. The band had quite an underground following and seemed poised on the blink of stardom, but something happened. Timing may have been an issue, because even though they were a novelty of sorts, their sound was definitly that of a hair metal band circa 1992, and that genre was beginning it's decline and fall. One year later grunge had basically wiped the floor of most of the prominent hair bands, and LSD probably fell through the cracks. Which is unfortunate because they seemed to have much more to offer than most of those bands. If you like harder hair bands like Ratt or Kick Axe, check these guys out."
