CD Reviews

This is one of the best bands of the 90's
David J. Berault | Chicago, IL USA | 06/14/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Is there someone out there that does not love these guys? This album is full of hard punch and good guitar! I am sitting here, mad. Why am I mad? Because you don't own one of the best albums I ever heard, instead you are sitting there wondering if its any good.....IT IS! BUY IT! I GUARANTEE THIS ALBUM!"
Truly an underrated band....

"Being a thirty three year old kinda guy who was weaned on metal and first-generation punk back in the late 70's early 8o's, I can honestly say that there are very few bands around with this much intelligence, both musically and lyrically. Great album, great band, period. And no, if Limp Bizkit is your definition of "metal", then don't buy this album. This is metal without image, where what you hear takes center stage. Crotch-grabbing and finger pointing fans need not apply. Long live music that matters."
Rival Schools; where it all began
Mr. J. R. Davies | UK | 05/05/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The current rise of ex-Quicksand frontman Walter Schriefels' new band, Rival Schools has sparked a resurgence of interest in his former projects. Right from the start you can hear the logical progression to Schriefels' current sound. Opener 'Backwards' is angular and coarse, yet still possesses the hint of emo-tinged melody that has come to the fore in rival Schools. Quciksand have often been touted as one of the original 'emo' bands - it's a phrase i hate to use to group together a genre, but hey - along with people like Far and weezer, and stand-out tracks like 'Landmine Spring' show you why. Throughout, the sound is angular, it sounds like a darker, more intense rival schools, buta band more prone to experimentation. indeed, i've done my best but it's actually very hard to categorise Quicksand's sound. what is evident, right from the first listen of this album, is exactly how many bands they've influenced. it's not perfect by any means, some tracks don't really develop to any great extent, and others don't possess any kind of 'hook', but overall it's a fine album and highly recommended to fans of Rival Schools, as well as any other emo/posthardcore/prententious/pointless/pigeonholing/of/music people (i'm not having a go at you guys, it's the music journalists!!! lol!!) out there!!! Enjoy!!!!"
