CD Reviews

The best album you never heard
that | usa | 10/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"originally released in 1996 this is the first album by the group SARGE from chicago, ill. (forget the smashing pumkins these were the real thing), (latter elizabeth elmore would form a group called THE REPUTATION). Known for guitar hooks that would make Husker Du blush and proudly so, and the most personal/disturbing/true to life lyrics this side of sapho and jawbreaker. This sometimes group of misfits continued on til 2000. Untimely disbanding when the drumer had personal issues. The 3 albums they left behind are a tribute to a time period of music that no longer exists. That no one "gets" this music now is tragic. It was influential for its time, and informative now- more bands are going back to the 80's for influence when they hit the 90's sarge will surge back to pop status again.... If there is any justice. I don't really think it'll happen. I just think if everyone in america heard this album they'd understand post nirvana punk/emo/indy/whatever u wanna call those people who arent famous but should be."
