Whatever led you here ... stop! And buy this CD ...
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Over and Out" is the final stroke of genius from one of North America's most under-rated "rock" bands. Tar's music is loud and beautiful ... subtle and chaotic ... all in one song. Never mind what you know about Helmet, Jesus Lizard, Big Black or any of the other bands you associate with AmRep or the Chicago sound. This is the stuff! Exquisite pop/guitar/noise from four regular guys like you and me. Ahhhhh ... (if you can, dig back and check out the "Roundhouse", "Jackson" and "Toast" albums as well) ... enjoy."

"Very sick. I was blown away by this album the first time through. If you're into Jesus Lizard, Shellac, Slint, or the more recent but curiously underrated Giddy Motors, etc. you should probably already know that you'll love this album (which is not to minimize in any way the surprising variety or unique way that Tar approaches the Chicago post-hardcore sound, a sound I love more and more with each successive discovery). If you're new to Touch and Go however, this album is just more inventive, far more interestingly produced, and many times more honest than all the "hard rock" most people listen to on FM radio. And it just kicks @$$. Fantastic!"
A diverse and solid way to go out

"Tar has always been one of my favorite bands, and this last effort was their most solid of their Touch and Go years. It has the bright crisp sound and production I loved them for, but shows diversity in tone, feel and rhythym. Many lyrics (and the title) hint that this was their parting shot, and though there's a lot of different sounds on this record (especially for Tar), it sticks together as a unit perfectly. This and Jackson on AmRep are their 2 5 star albums. Great token guest vocals from Al from Shorty/US Maple to boot."
