CD Reviews

Stunning full-lenght debut
John | Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada | 06/17/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"i first heard of Sam on a late night Canadian tv show that showcases up and coming Canadian filmmakers and musicians and i was impressed. later his 'Inhuman Condition' EP came out and i was amazed. based on those two experiences, i bought this album the day it was released and i was blown away. the three tracks from the EP that are featured here (Where Have All the Good People Gone?, Brother Down, Don't Walk Away Eileen) are all new versions, and are improvements on their earlier counterparts. Sam is a very proudly Canadian artist, with references to Canada in many of his songs (even singing in french for a few verses of one), but that certainly shouldn't limit his appeal to a strictly Canadian audience. i really hope he catches on in the US and elsewhere, because he is really a great talent. his songs (which are all penned by himself) are inspired, original, well written, diverse, and above all, catchy. some highlights include: the stunning first track, 'Hard Road'; 'Where Have All the Good People Gone?', my personal fav; the beautiful and Beatle-esque 'Taj Mahal'; and the uber-catchy 'Brother Down'."
Rock Music at it's Best!

"Sam rocks plain and simple, besides his music being the best thing to come out f Canada in a long time, he is simply the nicest guy! (as are his bandmates) everyone shoud own this CD and get the import if you want to hear The Canadian Dream (its only on the Can. CD) because its a great song!"
There is hope for Canadian Music

"I hadn't purchased this cd until I attended the Sam Roberts concert at the Commodore. I was blown away. It was one of the most energy packed shows I've ever seen. You have to see this guy live, he works the crowd like no other. I don't know what the people who say he isn't good live are on, because I liked every song I heard the first time and I'm very picky about music. I went out and bought the album and haven't stopped listening to it since. Talk about music that picks you up and puts a swagger in your step. The only thing I can really compare it to is the Beatles or Jane's Addiction. Great melodies, guitar riffs and rhythms. Watch this guy because he's going to be big, and go to one of his concerts now so that you can say you were there in the early days! This guy has breathed new life into a very dry, dull canadian music scene(SUM 41, Nickelback, Default haven't got anything on this guy)"
