CD Reviews

The Sherbs...80's goodtime music
Hammond Nut | Fresno, CA USA | 09/29/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Before I had heard this album, my only exposure to this 80's Australian supergroup was "No Turning Back", a song that continues to haunt me to this day, with it's percussive Hammond/Leslie solo. Indeed, the rest of this album sounds like this song, but more pop and less rock than NTB. Tons of hot vocal, burning guitar, and 80's synth pads all set over driving rhythms...if you heard it with no backround info, you'd peg it immediately as a 80's band (a HOT 80's band). It's all fun music of this period, if only there were more of that burnin' Hammond organ !!"
Kings of Emotion
Rich Aucoin | 11/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"On The Skill album, Sherbs created the perfect combination of smoking keyboards, infectious guitar licks and passionate vocals. I agree that this CD has a somewhat outdated sound, but the album was so good that the 24 years that have passed since its release seem to melt away while listening.
For this reviewer, Sherbs, (for all their obscurity in the US), were the kings of emotion. No other band matched their ability to relate through music that ineffable longing, that simultaneous agony and rapture one feels during a desperate period of unrequited love (or lust).

Two particular songs on he Skill come to mind: "Love You To Death" and "Cindy Is Waiting." I get goose bumps just typing these titles. The girl(s) who inspired these songs must have been skull-crushingly HOT!!!
