CD Reviews

No adjectives suffice to describe its greatness
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album changed hardcore forever. After this album, everyone either tried to emulate Quicksand's style, or just gave up. It made everyone look around at the state of hardcore at that time and say, 'what have we been doing this whole time?!?' This was the first record of its kind, though Swiz and Fugazi were probably influences. If 'Dine Alone', 'Fazer', 'Freezing Process', and 'Lie and Wait' had any more groove to them, the world would have to just stop spinning. Walter's voice and lyrics and his syncopated vocal rhythms serve to strengthen the already-massive musical force of their music. Tom Capone is one of the few guitar players in the world who should actually be playing guitar solos, and Alan Cage's drumming style is unparalleled. These four seasoned hardcore vets (the various members were at one time or another in Youth of Today, Bold, Beyond, Absolution, Gorilla Biscuits, Shelter, Moondog, Burn, and other great bands), all got exactly what they deserved by being signed to a major, and this debut release scarcely disappoints. The only let down here is the lack of vocals on Baphomet ('if you were mine...'). The vinyl version (good luck finding it) even has a better mix of 'How Soon is Now?' than you'll find on the Dine Alone promo single. Pick this up as soon as possible and feel whole again."
Are you kidding me? This record kills it!

"This record bridges the gap between Sunny Day Real Estate and Rage Against The Machine in the best way! It's the best melodic hardcore record you'll ever hear. Even Deftones fans will step off once they've spent a little time with Slip. An addictive record with precise, meaningful lyrics. Came out at the height of new school NYC hardcore scene...on the heels of Gorilla Biscuits and 7 Seconds, and dusting everything that's come out since. Quicksand. Just to say it makes me smile."
Helmet + Fugazi= Quicksand

"Amazing band. I honestly can't stand all the garbage that constitutes as "post-hardcore" or "emo" these days. Bands like Thursday, Saves the Day, Taking Back Sunday(pretty much any band with "day" in the title) cannot and will not ever hold to Quicksand. On this cd you won't hear wussy guitars and whining vocals screaming about ex-girlfriends. Instead, you'll be treated to strong and assertive vocals and quality songwriting. Highly recommended"
