(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album should have been big. This is one of my favorite albums put out by any band. The production is great,the harmonies are great,and each song holds it's own. There is no filler here. Their cover of David Bowies classic "Space Oddity" is probably the best cover song I have heard. They had a single with "I Love You" that should have been a bigger hit but with bands like Pearl Jam and Nirvana being the "in thing" they didn't have much of a chance. Saigon Kick really have their own sound and are hard to lump in a category of music. Lots of rock/progressive rock/harmonies and a classical touch all together in the sound. Nothing wrong with that.

You will like this album if you like hard rock with harmonies,ballads that have thought out,meaningful lyrics,not just something thrown together to make a hit. Every now and then a band comes along that has a unique sound with poetic-like lyrics and music that flows in a perfect way. This is that band and their best album in my opinion. A top 10 in my collection and should be in yours.

Stand Out songs(although they change all the time) "On And On" "When You Were Mine" "Water" and "I love You""
Nearly Perfect Alternative Rock

"Being a fan of Jane's Addiction, and their heavy assualt of guitars and melody, this band Saigon Kick immediately appealed to me the moment I first heard "What You Say" a few years before this release. Saigon Kick have a hard rock sound with as much melody as a Kings X, or Extreme had briefly also in the early 90's. To me this was perfect alternative rock, call it whatever you want, but that's what it is to me. SK can switch gears from song to song just like these bands mentioned also, and tone it down just as easily as they crank it up.

This was the first album to not feature Matt Kramer, Jason Bieler takes over lead vocal duties along with guitar of course, and to me does a fine job of it, not really missing a beat even adding some things to the mix perhaps?

All the songs on here are amazing, they do a cover of Bowies "Space Oddity" which is just beautiful, and my favorite song on the CD is "Torture" which has great hooks, verses, this song just churns along and sticks in your head long after it fades.

The Ballad "I Love You" is an example of the softer side that's been heard since the debut, and a song like "The Way" almost reminds you of the Doors, and continues the albums running emotional rollercoaster. It's like waves crashing all over while you hold on at times. "On and On" seems like a catchy pop song that they have written, but just shows what they are truly capable of and what they do best: Keeping us guessing and grooving from track to track. "Close To You" is another one of my favs, by this time you are adjusted after hearing "My Heart", but then being thrown into a bouncy (but dark) "Sentimental Girl". On "Close To You" as soon as the drums kick in you go "here we go again" with the tribal thing...and this one just soars when Jason sings "when you're all alone you know I'm not that hard to find", it just fits perfectly with the flow of the album to me. The album closes with the reprise of "Gotta Believe there's something better than this". I really can't think of much that is better than this, not then...and probably not now.

Fans of Faith No More, Jane's Addiction, and some other old school late 80's early 90's alternative rock/hard rock should consider this or any Saigon Kick CD essential to their collection."
A truly underated band

"Love this disc. Everytime I pop it in I enjoy it and can listen from Track 1 to the end. Standout songs, "One Step Closer"; "On and On" (great bass line in this one); "Sgt. Steve"; "Fields of Rape"; "When You Were Mine". This is Bieler at his best. Love his stuff."
