CD Reviews

Quite simply one of the greatest albums ever
M. J. Mahan | Atlanta, GA | 09/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought "United By Fate" on a whim one day in 2002 just because the lead singer was Walter Shreifels, former frontman for Quicksand. At best, I was hoping Rival Schools wouldn't tarnish the memory of my beloved Quicksand. What I found was a sublime collection of artistic genious that I literally listened to 2 or 3 times a day for over 2 years straight and still listen to often. If you like rock music, you will love this record. Buy it now."
Everything Has Its Point

"This isn't a bad album, by any means. Rival Schools' strengths here are the dynamic songs like 'Travel By Telephone' and 'Used For Glue'. What makes this album less-than-outstanding is an abundance of songs with monotonous dynamics and wandering, distracted-sounding melodies [such as 'Undercovers On'].

A previous reviewer has described this as "the most mediocre album ever." That's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's not all that far off the mark.

I don't regret buying a used copy."
Should give this 6 stars

"
This realy should be up there with early Foo Fighters and Nirvana guess they never had the press behind them to plug them as the greatest thing since Hendrix (yeh right!)

Still, this is a great step up sort of like a continuation of where Quicksand was going after their 2nd lp. Interesing that there are so many used and new for sale (just gives you more of a reason to check them out if their stuff is going so cheap)"
