"For years I have had the urge to write a review about "Killed for Less", but how does one ever explain the feeling of this album. Forgive my absence of a technical review and accept an emotional review, i wouldn't know how to explain this album any other way. My first introduction to Sense Field was thanks to a Purged snowboard company video called "Broke and Penniless" released back in 94'. It featured the songs "Blue glass man" and "Found you". By some fate, I found Killed for Less the day I went looking for it, and in a local record store that had never carried anything of the like. You will fall in love with this record if you allow yourself. Jon's voice has the power to awake everything "free" within you, and the music will haunt you, as it continues with me 11 years since. 'Building' is exactly what it is, it builds the intensity where Killed for Less left you speechless 2 years before. These are the two most spiritually powerful albums of my life...religion aside, let the music of Sense Field take you to a higher place within yourself.

"Goodloveall"....Thank you 1990-2004

"This might sound silly, but this is the band that got me into punk. Sense Field was always more of a Pixies-esque type of band, but they were on the hardcore-punk label Revelation Records. In 1994, I was 16 and into Candlebox and Stone Temple Pilots. These guys were my first experience with "underground" music. And because of these guys and the ads in the CD I suddenly realized that there were weird bands called the Gorilla Biscuits and Bold and Quicksand and Inside Out and then onto Victory and Equal Vision and etc. They are the second best show I've ever seen (in a basement in a VFM in Mankato, MN in 1996...and that's behind Sunny Day Real Estate, which can't be beat.)As far as KILLED FOR LESS as an album goes... I think it is their best. The self-titled album doesn't really count because it is two EPs lumped together. Building is a close second. I'll be interested to see how Jon does in Further Seems Forever. To be honest, he seems too old to be in a trendy emo band like that. Maybe I'm wrong. I've met him twice and he's THE nicest guy on the planet...so I wish him well. Post-script: To me this has always been the weirdest band on the planet. Not because of their music, but because they were an indie band on a hardcore punk label in the 90's. And then with the slight commercial success in the early 2000's. And now with Jon in Further Seems Forver. So here's the weird closer: They are the Pixies if they were on a punk label. Even though the Pixies are WAY more punk than Sense Field. It's a paradox."
One of the five albums to bring to a deserted island.

"You can attribute this review to all the other reviews that I have read about Sense Field's album Building and the lack of reviews I have read for this album; Killed for Less. I won't go into detail about how or when I first heard this band, but I will simply give my opinion that this album is their best work. This is an album that you can honestly listen to thoroughly without fast forwarding or skipping a single song. Killed for Less, I would say, stays true to their original musical intent, it begins where their first album left off. Unfortunately it also ends that segment of their music, where their songs sounded original, fresh, melodically arranged, and damn it if they didn't rock! Their newer albums have most definitely been subjected to production and marketing strategies and the original flavor has been tainted by radio formatted songs and weaker lyrics and singing. If you are thinking about picking up Sense Field for the first time, I highly suggest this album above all their others, it truly is a stand alone masterpiece. If you currently know of Sense Field and you don't already own this album slap yourself across the face and then slap your credit card down on the counter."
