"Here's a couple reviews I borrowed for those who still aren't sure:The L.A. Times says: "...Larriva could easily assume the title Time magazine once hung on David Byrne, "Renaissance Man"and the Houston Press says: "...one of the most criminally overlooked, possibly the meanest rock outfit on the planet. In live performance, Tito & Tarantula are truly deadly.""
These guys rock!

"I first heard this band in the movie 'Desperado'. I have a couple of their CD's and really enjoy the grooves while driving. If you're a big top 40 fan, (Britney Spears, etc.) You may not like it. The songs are not cranked out of the radio play tune machine and have bizzare subject matter. Keep it up Tito!
I have tried with poor success to get my friends into this band, but I stand by my taste."
Tito & Tarantula never lost their touch

"This album rocks! Almost every song on it is great.
Bleeding Roses--This is a very good song, but after you listen to it too much you may find it stuck in your head for the rest of the day. But it is a very good song, especially the chorus. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva, Peter Atanasoff, and Johnny Hernandez.
When You Cry--I haven't listened to this song very much, but it still is good. It is another soft rock song, but it still is Tito & Tarantula quality material. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva.
Love In My Blood--One of my favorite songs on the album. The first rock song so far with some excellent lead and rythem guitar. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva and Peter Atanasoff.
Slow Dream--This song switches off and on between rock and soft rock in the lyrics and the chorus. It is fairly good. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva.
Hungry Sally--This song starts with soft, acoustic guitar and steady singing but progresses to heavy rock and blasting vocals within 6 minutes. It gets pretty good towards the end. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva, Peter Atanasoff, Jennifer Condos, Petra Haden, and Johnny Hernandez.
My German Fraulein--My favorite song on the whole album. Features some amazing rock guitar, great tunes, and fabulous singing. Definately the album's best song. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva, Peter Atanasoff, and Johnny Hernandez.
Betcha Can't Play--This short song is fun to listen to but barely has any lyrics. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva.
Clumsy Beautiful World--Another one of the best songs on the album, though not THE best. It has a good tune, and the singing blends well with it. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva and Peter Atanasoff.
The Devil's In Love--This song is somewhat strange when it comes to lyrics but is good nonetheless. The bass during the chorus is notably good. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva and Peter Atanasoff.
Slow Dream--The only song on the album that I don't like. There is barely any sound throughout this ten-minute song. It has some of the quietist guitar ever played and some of the softest singing ever sung. I'm not even sure if there's any drums at all. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva.
Pieces of Time All In A Line--Another very good song, with some more very odd lyrics. It features guitar playing, bass playing, drum playing, violin playing, and singing; all put to a well-written tune. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva, Peter Atanasoff, and Johnny Hernandez.
Crucified--This is the hidden-trap song on Pieces of Time All In A Line that is featured in a film co-starring Tito himself. It has some very talented guitar playing from Peter Atanasoff and the usual great singing from Tito Larriva. This song features some of the highest tenor-guitar playing I have ever heard. Featuring vocals by Tito Larriva, Peter Atanasoff, and Johnny Hernandez.
This is one album definately worth buying, as are all of Tito & Tarantula's albums. Help make them popular in the U.S.A, by purchasing this album and becoming a fan now!"
