CD Reviews

New Noise for the 90's
JJ | Berkeley, CA | 04/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although the CD format was released in 1994, the original version on 7" vinyl came out in 1990. And let me tell you, this was truly a revolutionary recording, both for the label it was released on (Revelation Records) and for the audience it was marketed to (SxE Hardcore Scene). Quicksand set an entirely new precedent with this 7" and in the process changed our definition of how hardcore music could sound. With slow tempos, progressive rhythms, elaborate guitar solos, and melodic vocals, Walter and company constructed a style that was unlike anything else. And yet they managed to capture an intensity that equaled, if not surpassed, any of the traditional hardcore outfits of their day, which is precisely why my friends and I were so enamored with them. Quicksand proved that it was possible to play innovative, challenging music and still maintain the energy that made bands like Youth of Today and Gorilla Biscuits so captivating. It is to this day one of my favorite records, and in my humble opinion it is Quicksand's single best release."

"It never gets old. Infact, earlier today a friend an I were listening to slip and it took us back years. Going to see them at Roseland to open for rage. so sick. Timeless."
Changed the HC scene forever

"This 7" (cause thats how everyone remembers it.. this came out before CDs were popular for small releases) changed how just about everyone in the HC scene thought about music. Revelation up to this point had put out a pretty consistent roster; YOT, Gorilla Biscuts, Chain of Strength, Bold, Judge, etc. All fast hardcore with straight-edge lyrics. This changed all that. Melodic, lyrically clever, but with HC names and style this really revolutionized everything. Suddenly you didn't need heavy, heavy guitars to break through into the audience. You didn't need the Mike Judge raspy voice to get heard. Listening to it today, unlike much of the music of the era, this still holds up. It should hold a proud place on any HC fan's shelf."
