CD Reviews

Hear this before you die
acenugget | Center Line, MI United States | 04/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is, by far, one my my favorite bands. I grew up listening to these guys and never heard a single song that I didn't like. Of course, that was before they got a major record deal and went "big time". I expected that they would start writing songs about girls and cars but much to my surprise, it never happened. They not only managed to keep their semi polical writing style but surpassed my highest expectations. If you're only experience with Rhythm Corps is from hearing songs like "Common Ground", then you're in for something awesome. For the unfamiliar, I would compare them older U2 with a much more solid political folk/rock base. I can't recommend this band and this album enough. My fear is that someone somewhere won't get a chance to hear this album before they die."
An AWESOME sophomore outing from a truly underrated band!

"While their first album, Common Ground, provided only one single with decent airplay, I was certain when this one was released that it would be a stellar hit for them. There were so many tracks that could have easily been number one singles. But, alas, the American record buying public was too preoccupied with either Grunge or Garth Brooks to notice.

This is one of those albums that not only do you NOT have to skip any songs, you anxiously await each one. The music and lyrics are so pure they seem timeless. "Mother" is the true standout song here, as sung from the perspective of humanity to the earth. "Mother, there's a whole above our heads. I'm the one who put it there, and I'm the one who'll shake the beds..." Unfortunately the rest of the world will never get a chance to hear the message. If only they'd have shaken the beds a little harder. Or maybe we weren't interested in waking up to the truth.

Do yourself a favor and pick this up - you won't regret it."
A great band that most people don't remember

"Rhythm Corps was one of my favorite bands in the late 80's and early 90's, and to this day I still don't get tired of hearing this album. Great vocals, strongs guitars, solid rhythm section and politically driven lyrics make them an American version of U2. Their live shows are incredible. I still don't know how they never made it big, as everyone of their songs is great. Their two major release albums (Common Ground and TFNWIUTB) are among my all-time favorites."
