Like Rancid, there are echoes of the Clash here, though minus the punk spikiness and shot through instead with pure American rock & roll. "Big Chair," "Hole in My Soul," "Imperial," and "Big & Mean" are among the slamming delights. --Jeff Bateman

One of those bands that shoulda been but never were
Matt Scheidler | denver, co | 04/02/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I remember driving around Denver in 1995 listening to the sadly ill-fated 92x when, suddenly, I was jolted out of the boredom of University BLVD on the way to my job at Famous Video & Music ('member when those kindsa stores still existed before B-Buster power-played 'em into the dust: used CDs/video games/and Rainer Werner Fassbinder movies--sweeeet). The jolt was a powerful opening riff. The first time I heard "Beyond Belief" was a similar moment. "What is this?, I asked myself with a goofy beguiled smile. Four minutes and two seconds later, I heard the DJ mention something about an unsigned band called Reacharound from the UK. 92x--the best radio station Denver has known in my memory--disappeared due to capitalism. While 92x remained--before KBPI stomped it into the ground--I enjoyed Reacharound, among other great lost bands (Cold Crank, we hardly knew ye, although, I can't vouch for the fact that 92x played Cold Crank; if they didn't, they should've). Months later, BMG gave me an offer I couldn't refuse, and long story short, "Who's Tommy Cooper" was mailed to my meager abode. It's a bit hit or miss as a whole, but "Big Chair" is a hit that should never have missed. Do yourself a favor and don't miss it yourself. You won't regret it. And if you do, there's always Kylie Minogue, you little sinner. XD Now, excuse me, but the Floyd beckons . . ."
