    Editorial Review

    The Nirvana Revolution smashed opened the door for countless like-minded bands. Many were second-rate rip-offs, but Everclear was one deserving of the opportunity. Sure, the angst and crunchy post-punk riffs of Sparkle and Fade owe a debt to St. Kurt, but Art Alexakis's own outsider tales--sample titles include "Heroin Girl" and "You Make Me Feel like a Whore"--prove piercing in a woe-is-him sort of way. Featuring the swaggering, strangely euphoric "Santa Monica," itself one of the finer rock singles of '90's, Sparkle burns like a fresh wound. It's an exhilarating, if ultimately long-winded collection, far more accomplished than the band's hit-and-miss debut and not nearly as overtly radio-minded as it successor.--Neal Weiss ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars where would i be without it?
    I first heard this album back in 96-i can honestly say no album has had a greater influence on my music 'listening' career. The everclear then was completely raw open and forthcoming. These songs may be over played on the radio now.. but everyone should sit down and listen to what art is really saying... stories of a brutally hard adolsence... growing up around junkie and the such. i saw him in 98-they may have being becoming more popular but they played most of this album and hell they rocked...especially heartspark dollarsign accoustic..magic

    5-0 out of 5 stars a staple of any nutritious music collection
    once upon a time a band by the name of everclear wrote raw songs that screeched and wailed as art alexakis mused over his mistikes in life. as everclear's fanbase grew, the production level was upped, the riff (singular) polished and sheaned, the angst diluted, and the cheese maxed. yet the essence of their earlier efforts remained there throughout illustrating the difficulty art has had to shed the weight of the power of these songs. sparkle and fade contains the distressed misdirected anger (that has made everclear so popular) in its purest form. 'electra...' twists and pulls setting the scene for one of the most enigmatic albums of the nineties. 'heroin girl', 'you make me feel like a whore', 'heartspark dollarsign' classic songs in their own right. but sparkle also has some of the most underated everclear tunes 'the twistinside', 'pale green stars' to name a few. oh, and there's a lil ditty that goes by the name of 'santa monica'. genius

    5-0 out of 5 stars phenomenal
    This album is the reason that I am such a big Everclear Fan. This shows the band at their high point in their career. The music is full of grungy guitars and great drum beats, but the lyrics are what drives the album for me. Art Alexakis wrote much better lyrics on this album than anything else that this band has ever created. He just knows how to hit people hard and tackles REAL issues unlikeso much mainstream music that I hear today. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    The Mississippi-based quartet 3 Doors Down has only one thing that sets them apart from other hard rock bands: lead vocalist Brad Arnold is also the drummer. The group shops the sounds of Pearl Jam and the Goo Goo Dolls, pointing at what they like, picking it off the shelf, and throwing it into the stew.While the music on The Better Life, their debut, sounds overall both competent and confident, the songs themselves are equally uninspired and clichéd.For example, the riff from the track "Loser" is straight out of the Alice in Chains songbook, adding much more cringe-worthy lyrics ("Addiction needs a pacifier, the buzz of this poison is taking me higher").In fact, most of the lyrics zero in on well-worn rockthemes of aggravation, confusion, and frustration, feelings that 3 Doors Down will easily coax out of discriminating listeners. --Jason Josephes ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars 3DD Best Album
    I bought this album when it first came out and I still love it. I'm mainly writing this review to let new fans of 3DD know that this one is still their best. Every song on this track is amazing and still gets routine spins in my CD player. It's also their hardest rocking CD they've put out and it's one every fan should have in their collection.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Band Ever
    Although I may sound biased when I say this, but 3 Doors Down is the best band ever. The summary by Jason Josephes, who is a very unopen-to-good-music-no-matter-what-genre-critic, is a load of bull. 3DD may sound like Alice and Chains,the Goo Goo Dolls, andPearl Jam, but they do have a unique style of their own. They take country music sounds and tweak them till they sound like rock, and that makes it all the better. I guess even though 3DD got 3 top ten singles on THE BETTER LIFE, 3 more on AWAY FROM THE SUN, and one now on SEVENTEEN DAYS, and got #1 on SEVENTEEN DAYS WHEN IT CAME OUT!, Mr. Josephes isn't happy. 3DD has been around for 5 years, and will be around for many more. Of course, it might help to listen to the cd before you say crap about it.

    Editorial Review

    It's hard to dislike Collin Raye, even with his guy-next-door earnestness and his penchant for wearing his emotions on his sleeve. Just when you think you can't stand anymore of his over-the-top, greeting card sentimentality ("There are moments I love you beyond the limits of my human heart," he sings in "You Will Always Be Mine"), he comes up with a leftfield winner like "Harder Cards," a turn-of-events murder saga told by the arresting officer. And when you're ready to dismiss him for his endless harping about family values, darn if he doesn't pull out two such songs ("Water and Bridges," which traces deeds that can't be undone, and "She's Gonna Fly," about a mother lost to Alzheimer's) that just rip your heart out. Tracks, like all of his efforts, is hit and miss, but this one broadens its appeal with faux R&B ("Couldn't Last a Moment") and instrumental and vocal washes straight out of the Beatles, Robert Palmer, and Queen. You may not recognize them right away, but they burrow into your brain and make this most homogeneous of country singers a familiar and welcome guest--no matter how much you didn't want to let him in. --Alanna Nash ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars RAISING THE BAR
    Collin Raye continues to raise the bar and somehow improve on perfection with each album he releases.Tracks is no exception. Although there is no shortage of sentimental ballads on this one, there are just enough up tempo songs to break it up a bit. "She's gonna fly" has lyrics that everyone can relate to because everyone has lost someone dear to them. I challenge you to listen to this song and see if you don't get a little misty. If you don't tear up, I would recommend not only not listening to the rest of the album, but you should also check your pulse."Completely", "Couldn't last a moment without you" and "Landing in Love" are all phenomenal songs, each with its own spirit and identity. The ballad "Loving this way" with Bobbie Eakes showcases Raye's ability to transition to singing a duet. His voices matches up perfectly with Eakes and this song has #1 written all over it.He seems to have a knack for picking songs that suit his style perfectly."Water and Bridges" is an example of a song that hits home with everyone, being about past mistakes and being unable to turn back time.Raye also sings every word as if he's personally experienced it all.A song has more substance when it seems as if it has personal meaning to the singer. The bottom line is if you like CR's previous works, you will find Tracks at least as good, if not better.His albums seem to have a quality where the sum of the songs is actually greater than the whole. This is a must have album that is one of my favorite country albums of all time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Collin Raye Sings From The Heart
    Up until about a year and a half ago, I thought country music in general was on the bottom of musical genres' food chain.I was of the popular opinion that when a typical country tune was played in reverse, the singer got his job back, got his dog back, and his woman would abruptly return. At that time, when I started to do some D.J. wedding reception gigs, I felt I had to expand my muscial horizons.I started listening to a few contemporary country singers:Faith Hill, Shania Twain, John Michael Montgomery, ... and someone I had never heard of (with the exception of "The Gift"), Collin Raye.

    "One Boy, One Girl" and "What If Jesus Comes Back Like That" made an impression, and caused me to further explore the country scene at greater detail.

    This album, "Tracks", is further motivation to invite country music into my life.One tune is particularly touching, "She's Gonna Fly."It refers to an alzeimer's patient, offering an explanation to the victim's family as to why she had to endure the suffering that accompanies this dreaded disease.My favorite aunt could very well be the "She" of the title.It's as though Collin knows exactly what my aunt's family has gone through over the past 5 years.

    If you are attracted to songs whose lyrics are worth listening to, I highly recommend most anything by Collin Raye.In combination with his easy-to-listen-to musical styling, his work touches the heart and soul.This album is no exception!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sgreat!
    ahh this is a great cd. i listen to it every day. it's fun music, and the lyrics are wonderful. hope everybody enjoys it as much as i do! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Reminiscences permeate the dozen diverse tracks that populate Everclear's fourth outing. The trio, spearheaded by writer/guitarist/producer Art Alexakis, looks back in myriad ways on Songs from an American Movie. Alexakis skillfully and sweetly addresses his recent divorce ("The Honeymoon Song," "Now That's It's Over"), musical heroes ("Otis Redding"), and childhood ("AM Radio"), frequently matching his words with suitably retro music. Although the only cover is a new-wave take on Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl," familiar musical references abound. On "AM Radio," a brief sample of "Mr. Big Shot" sets the tone for funky flashback fun, while "The Honeymoon Song" is full of Brian Wilson inflections. Alexakis references his own "Everything to Everyone" in the title track, while "Otis Redding," "Unemployed Boyfriend," and "Wonderful" are more commercial alt-rock Everclear than homage Everclear. Alexakis set out to make a pop album, and while millennial teenagers have their own definition of "pop," for '70s-kid Alexakis, Songs from an American Movie serves as a summertime soundtrack to his thirtysomething life. --Katherine Turman ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great album by a good band
    This is a very good album. Against the word of all my friends, who told me this was a bad album, I bought it a few weeks ago from a used CD bin, as I'd heard "AM Radio," "Brown-Eyed Girl," and "Wonderful" on the radio quite a bit over the last few years and liked all of them. Who'da thunk these were three of the weaker tracks on the album? My friends, surprisingly, were very wrong about this album.

    It starts out very well, with the title track, a mellow little number, and keeps getting better as it goes along. The best track on here is "Unemployed Boyfriend." It's an awesome song, basically summing up the whole 'Love at first sight' experience very well.

    This is a good album. Be forewarned, however, it doesn't sound like a normal Everclear album. It's a bit more 'poppy.' But it's all the better for it, I say.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Strong album from a smart band...
    Strong album from a smart band. This is actually a concept album about Art Alexakis growing up and falling in love. The follow-up album is about his divorce and it's on my to-buy list. I love this album so much, especially the cuts "AM Radio" and "Here We Go Again".

    4-0 out of 5 stars The Arc of a Failed Marriage
    Having heard So Much for the Afterglow after Songs, I now realize that Art Alexakis has been mining the same autobiographical lode for some time (the American Movie is of course his life), but what a vein he has struck.With repeated hearings, I keep liking this CD more and more.Its songs are loaded with pain and irony, but also with the moments of bliss and beauty in a now-broken relationship and the joys of fatherhood.He also has that rare quality in rock, a sense of humor (check out "Unemployed Boyfriend").All this comes wrapped in a rock and roll package that variously recalls the sounds of "AM Radio" heyday, the R and B of early Van Morrison (a re-make of "Brown Eyed Girl" that stands strongly up to the original), and judicious use of strings ("Annabella's Song" and "Otis Redding"). "Now That It's Over" and "Thrift Store Chair" are my personal favorites."Now" is a classic tirade song, right up there with Lou Reed's "Hooky Wooky," where he fantasizes throwing his ex-girlfriend's new lover off the roof or Dylan's "Positively Fourth Street".In Alexakis' case he sings, "Maybe we can be friends/Now that we're older/We can have fun.../Now that it's over," pauses and then scornfully screams "Yeah, right!"When I raved about the song to my 26 year old daughter, she said, "Too hardcore" rock.I took that as a generation gap compliment.

    A keeper.

    Editorial Review

    The Presidents of the United States of America scratch that itch that you can't reach. They do and say all those things that you'd like to, but fear what people might think of you. They are your inner-child, but stinking drunk on a half-case of cheap beer. And, with the youthful appeal of the Dead Milkmen, the off-kilter storytelling of Primus, and a razor-sharp sense of irony, they are utterly undeniable.

    Try, if you will, not to sing along with "Lump." It sticks in your brain after the first chorus and won't leave until you hear something supremely catchy just to scrape the chorus out of heavy frontal lobe rotation.Musically, they keep everything very minimal (they have only five strings between bassist Chris Ballew and guitarist Dave Dederer) and use their incredibly twisted wit to engage the listener. From the punkish "Lump" and "We Are Not Gonna Make It" to the funky "Boll Weevil," the Presidents are the perfect antidote to the serious, heavy-handed rock perpetuated by their Seattle brethren. --Adem Tepedelen ...

    'smartest reviewer' my ass.This is one of my favourite albums simply because the tunes are hellishly catchy and the guys refuse to take themselves seriously.This CD belongs in everyone's collection and since the Pressies are currently touring (and I was lucky enough to see them) there's no better time than the present to brush up on the biggies - Kitty, Lump, Peaches, Boll Weevil and Dune Buggy.Great stuff for those of us who don't take life too seriously

    1-0 out of 5 stars you're kidding right?
    the most untalented band ever. a band so crappy even they don't take themselves seriously. the fans, on the other hand, seem to love to fill their ears with musical (...). this reviewer would rather liturally put (...)in his ears instead of listening to a minute of this terribly unfunny joke. seriously, these guys are hardly presidents of their sharded boxers. some of the most useless people in society. the dude from se7en would have a field day with these losers.

    Editorial Review

    Young, aggro, and from Los Angeles--it's tempting to put Incubus in the already crowded category populated by Korn, System of a Down, and their other loud and heavy brethren. But that would sell Incubus short, because Make Yourself, the quintet's sophomore album, is a strong progression beyond their 1997 debut, S.C.I.E.N.C.E.. More like Faith No More than Limp Bizkit, Incubus still have that teen-mosh appeal, though the songwriting and instrumentation on Make Yourself is diverse and thoughtful, both lyrically and musically. "Drive" is an easygoing, slightly trippy acoustic-based outing, while oddball scratching (courtesy of DJ Chris Kilmore) and trip-hop funkiness make "Battlestar Scralatchtica" aptly titled. "Nowhere Fast" is vaguely 311-ish with a reggae tinge and lovely melodic interludes, in contrast to the furious intensity of "Out from Under," which gives Make Yourself a surprisingly cohesive diversity that's hard to categorize. Ultimately, singer Brandon Boyd is not a vocal genius, but lyrically and in performance, he's sensitive, charismatic, and unique. Ditto for the 13 cuts that make up Make Yourself. --Katherine Turman ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Punchy, Soft, Loud, Smooth, and Everything Under the Sun...
    Incubus take their busy, maniacle, user-friendly sound (S.C.I.E.N.C.E), and strip it down to something more plausible for the basic ear.

    Make Yourself is truely a higher-point in the, "incubus-is-holier-than-thou" parade.

    Winding down off of their 1997 release, 'Science' incubus takes there busy-bodied nu-metal album to a softer extreme. Make Yourself takes off with an instantly single worthy track and ends just the same. Every song on the album is easily comprehendable and every bit as radioworthy as the actual released tracks.

    The incubus quintet really hit the ball out of the park with this album. Make Yourself could arguably be perfect in every way.

    Definitely a starting point for any incubus enthusiast.

    Incubus
    Make yourself

    Incubus really surprised me with their album Make Yourself. I first heard their hit single "Drive" while I was in my car and it really gave me a calming mellow feeling. Their first album S.C.I.E.N.C.E was really kind of offbeat, and was more of a rap mixed with Goth. This album is very different. Their music isn't pop but not quite alternative, I would place it somewhere in the vicinity of rock. Their genre can't really be classified very well; it's a mix of Southern Californian rock with a bit of scratching and obviously doesn't ignore the good old electric guitar. I am positive that Incubus' music has grown since their first two albums, and I definitely like their new sound. They have shown lots of growth through each of their albums and Make Yourself is a great result of that growth. This album is great, not to mention Brandon Boyd's vocals are a treat in their own right. The rhythm, range, and delivery of his vocals are unlike anyone else on the radio today. The rest of the band is composed of three other musical geniuses, Michael Einziger, Alex Katunich, and Jose Pasillas.The album contains 13 songs, but I think only 12 are worth listening to. Songs 8 and 11 are slow ones, and really calm, and the others are fast paced, but not so fast that you want to stop listening. My favorite song on the CD is "Pardon Me" its just one of those songs you want to listen to when you're pissed, it starts off with a slow tempo and then all of a sudden just busts into head banging glory, its just amazing how fast Boyd can sing, and his range in the song is tremendous.The song I avoid is the tenth on the CD, it is considered instrumental but I would more appropriately classify it as boring, but maybe that's just me because I am not really into instrumental all by itself without vocals, so if you like instrumental then go for it.As Boyd says in "Consequence"... "Blink and you miss a beat keep one of your eyes open at all times". So take charge and seriously think about buying Make Yourself, I guarantee that you will love it.

    Editorial Review

    For all his tattoos and bulked-up frat-boy persona, singer Bradley Nowell had real soul, which made his fatal heroin overdose even more tragic. There's more to this Long Beach, California, trio's debut, released shortly after Nowell's death in 1996, than white suburban punks imitating Jamaican ska music. The band comes up with great songs, notably the catchy MTV hit "What I Got"; spooky dub-reggae undertones, produced by the Butthole Surfers' Paul Leary, to go with the snappy horns; and surprisingly progressive lyrics that attack sexism and other social ills, especially on "Wrong Way." Like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Fishbone, obvious forebears, Sublime become slightly tiresome after 17 songs, but the band is great in short doses. --Steve Knopper ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A sure buy
    This is one of the few albums that you can listen to every song. Sublime was short lived but the couple albums released are well worth buying.Just press play

    5-0 out of 5 stars Sublime at its best..
    To start off, I got this cd shortly after 40 Oz. To Freedom, which I didn't find to be the "super-amazing" cd that everyone believes it to be. This cd, on the other hand, is amazing. In comparison to 40 Oz To Freedom, this cd has a lot more great songs and a lot less filler.
    Garden Grove: Nice and easy, good track to start off. Maybe drags on a bit too long at the end. 4/5

    What I Got: There is a reason why this gets played on the radio. Basically, a great song and without all the long dragging on. 5/5

    Wrong Way: Personally, I am a much bigger fan of ska than of reggae styled music, which is why I love this song. The lyrics are interesting also. 5/5

    Same In The End: First introduction on this cd to the more punk Sublime sound, and a very good introduction at that. 4.5/5

    April 29th, 1992: The most "hip-hop" of all the songs on this cd. One of those songs that people can love or hate. Personally, it's not one of my favourites. 3/5

    Santeria: This track also gets a lot of radio play. After listening to this, my friend learned how to play it on bass, and he played it non-stop for a week. 5/5

    Seed: Very unique and amazing song. It shifts from heavier punk style to reggae beats very well. Overall probably one of my favourite songs on the cd. 6/5

    Jailhouse: Some people call this a filler track, but I think it is a very good song, except for it is repetitive. 4.5/5

    Pawn Shop: In my opinion, the weakest song on the cd. It is 6:06 of pure boring repetitive guitar with the odd words thrown in here and there. Would be much better if it was about 4 minutes shorter and had more words. -FILLER- 2/5

    Paddle Out: The shortest song on the cd has good drumming and is an interesting song. Sounds a lot better listening to it after 'Pawn Shop'. 3.5/5

    The Ballad Of Johnny Butt: Strong, reggae style song. Normal Sublime song but nothing too special. 4/5

    Burritos: When I first heard this song I thought it was very good and after a few listens wondered why this one did not get radio play that I know of. It has good guitar work and lyrics. One of my favourites if not my favourite. 6/5

    Under My Voodoo: Right from the start this song is dominated by the guitar. The singing goes perfectly with the guitaring and makes for a good song. Very catchy as well, was stuck in my head for a good month. 5/5

    Get Ready: Good song, about doing anything to smoke. Listening to it a few times in a row calms you down. Not spectacular. 4/5

    Caress Me Down: This song has also been played on the radio a lot and it is indeed a good song. The lyrics are a bit crude but you get a few of these with every Sublime release. 4.5/5

    What I Got (Reprise): This song, if possible, is better than the original version. This song goes a lot better at the end of the album than the start. A favourite. 6/5

    Doin' Time: Good closing track. The background music drills into your skull eventually though. Not a song to listen to on repeat but good for finishing listening to the cd. 4/5

    All in all this is a great cd and my favourite release. If you like any kind of music like ska or reggae or softer punk, check out this cd. In conclusion, the cd itself just seems to flow through and is an easy listen.

    RIP Bradley Nowell - February 22,1968 - May 25,1996

    5-0 out of 5 stars completely awesome, their most popular cd

    It's fitting that the Kid Rock revival got started when the Beastie Boys featured him in their Grand Royal magazine--and not because the kid from Detroit shares their skin tone. Rock has often been compared with the early Beasties--the boys of "Fight for Your Right to Party" and "Brass Monkey," the boys no one ever thought would grow up. With lines like "I ain't straight outta Compton, I'm straight out the trailer" and "I started an escort service--for all the right reasons," it's obvious that Kid Rock doesn't aim to follow suit. But that's no hindrance to Devil--backed by the funky metal band Twisted Brown Trucker and special guests like blues vets Robert Bradley and Thronetta Davis, Rock is hosting one hell of an interesting party. Ultimately, Rock's party is great, schlocky fun, equal parts old Beasties and Sebastian Bach--making Devil a guilty pleasure, the Starship Troopers of hip-hop. --Randy Silver ... Read more

    This is just another commecial piece of sh**! This is awful! "Cowboy" is a terrible song! This is awful! This guy makes me laugh!

    1-0 out of 5 stars You can't be thirteen forever, I suppose...
    Hello, my name is Eggplant, and I was once a Kid Rock fan. It has been four years, eleven months, and eleven days since I last listened to this "album", and it has been four years, seven months, and fourteen days since I sold it on ebay. I admit, when I first got the CD, I was so excited about the gesture on the CD itself! I loved Kid Rock's immature bleatings about his ego, until one day, something happened...

    I turned fourteen.

    Thankfully, I grew up and out of the Kid-Rock-and-Limp-Bizkit-in-the-CD-Walkman-baggy-jeans-and-wallet-chain-wearing-skater-wannabe phase, and discovered bands with talent, like Pantera, Slayer, Fear Factory, et cetera. I realized that this album is just damn stupid, and not worth having, listening to, or even being anywhere near. Okay, I admit "Only God Knows Why" is actually okay, and might justify the one star Amazon forces me to give it, but otherwise... geez, someone's got some insecurity issues! (And not just me!) Anyway, Kid Rock is thankfully pretty much done, and we can put this fad in the past and move on. But I sometimes shudder over what might be over the horizon...

    "Devil Without A Cause?" If a cause requires talent, than yeah, Kid Rock is indeed without a cause.

    Editorial Review

    Like the movie itself, the Romeo + Juliet soundtrack is filled with emotional twists; from the hardness of Garbage's "#1 Crush" and the Butthole Surfers' "Whatever" to Stina Nordenstam's endearing, whispery "Little Star" the journey is all over the map. Within the CD-enhanced grooves, however, moments of absolute brilliance flow; Des'ree's "Kissing You (Love Theme from Romeo + Juliet)" is perhaps her strongest work to date, while Radiohead's "Talk Show Host" is a track that the group treasures and performs live often. Those two tracks alone make this soundtrack worth the purchase price. --Denise Sheppard ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable
    I never thought that a girl could say all that to a boy. Oh la la !

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best soundtracks ever
    I was eight when "Romeo and Juliet" came out (I decided to write a kids review for the hell of it)and yes, I fell in love with leo and I still am. I thought the film was brilliant, with a wonderful performance by claire danes and after seeing it, I heard there was a soundtrack. A friend bought it for me after i said how great the movie was and I instantly was hooked. Although I did not fully understand the songs then, I understand them now and it still remains one of the best soundtracks and films i have ever seen. Here is the breakdown:
    *#1 Crush - Garbage (they are one of my favorite bands and this song is GREAT 5/5)
    Local God - Very good song to rock to. Upbeat and fun. 4/5
    Angel - Ok song, able to listen to but not as great as the others. 3/5
    Pretty Piece of Flesh - Great upbeat rocking rhythme. Fun to listen to! 4/5
    Dream - Pretty good song, but the lead singer tends to bug me. 3.5/5
    Kissing You - wonderful love song! Made me cry in the movie! 5/5
    Lovefool - Fun, perky pop song. 4/5
    Young Hearts Run Free - Fun song but not amazing. 3/5
    Everybody's Free- Nice Gospel song. 4/5
    *To You I Bestowe - I love this song! Great guitar song with wonderful beat 5/5
    *Talk Show Host - Also one of my favorite songs! 5/5
    Little Star - Can't listen to this song. Awful. 1/5
    *You and Me Song - Great upbeat song! Love it! 5/5

    *= favorite songs even though most songs are GREAT!
    Get this great collection, you won't be disappointed!
    I also suggest the special edition DVD, it is great!

    Editorial Review

    The joke of Licensed to Ill's cover--that the Beasties could crash their jet into the side of a mountain and keep on tickin'--serves as a good metaphor for a career that even some of their 1986 admirers thought might be over after the one-time-only shock of this full-length debut. That thousands of funk-junkie wannabes have since failed at re-creating its groove, breaking-the-law vibe, and ear-splitting mix of rock and rap is an even better joke. And funniest of all is the record itself, which packs dexterous boasts, aural puns, and lots and lots of yelling into a disc that can still be listened to with as much pleasure as it gave in '86. --Rickey Wright ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars NO SLEEP TILL..........
    (I'm not really a kid)This album is a supurb blend of rock and rap. My fav on this album is Brass Monkey. To know the difference between the Beasties back in the 80's, when this album was released, and the Beasties now, listen to this. Then listen to their most recent album, To the 5 Broughs. They've changed alot, but they're still the same, great rock band/rap group.

    3-0 out of 5 stars the good songs are good, but it hasn't aged that well
    this is more like 3.5 stars. the beasties were a fun band and this is pretty much a fun album, but I think that the samples don't add that much to the music and honestly, it seems stupid to me oftentimes.when I am feeling strange and funky inside I put this on, but it is not something I come back to often.It is also not very consistent, and varies little from the "yo I'm so bad" format and repeats itself a lot.
    that said, songs like "no sleep til Brooklyn" and "girls" are highly enjoyable, and it was songs like those that convinced me to keep this cd.The beastie boys typically have a good amount of filler, but the whole point of the band was to be "terrible, and admit it" which is a fun and self deprecating thing for them.you should check this out sometime if you feel curious, it is kind of a novelty from back in the day.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Licensed Classic
    At it's time of release in 1986 the blend of rock/rap/hip-hop was the greatest combination for the production found on Licensed To Ill.Not only was this the Beastie Boys debut, it was a breakthrough for rap being this was some white boys doing it."...the three bad brothers we know so well..." had everything covered from hardcore, party, comedy into this 13 track release.Production was done by co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, Rick Rubin.Getting help from all angles, Run-DMC wrote "Slow And Low" and also co-wrote with the Boys the classic, ever so sampled "Paul Revere".Beastie Boys often flowed in and out well to give us each a part of their personality that still hasn't been duplicated by a rap group to date.All tracks were basically singles, with no fillers, interludes or featured guests. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best CD Ever
    This is a great CD from start to finish there is not one bad song that you need to skip over on the entire CD. It has all the real popular songs like 'semi-charmed life' and 'jumper' ect, but all the other less known songs like 'narcolepsy' 'backround' and 'motorcycle drive by' are also really good. Definatly one of the best CDs I ever bought

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best CD I ever Bought
    First, let's look into value.This CD, like the other reviewer said is WORTH EVERY PENNY that you pay for it, even if it was twenty bucks.Normally when you buy a CD you enjoy a couple of tracks, and that's about it.I enjoy almost everything single one of the tracks from start to finish.It is one of those albums that make you think, "That was a job well done."
    I don't appreciate the missuse of God's name in the first track, but I just skip that one; all of the other tracks are top notch.The music is so crisp, clear, original, and catchy, and the more you listen to it, the better it gets. The only tracks I don't like are God of Wine and Motorcycle drive by, I don't know what the big deal with God of Wine is, but anyway, buy this incredible album as soon as you can. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My first and Favorite
    This is the first cd that I ever purchased when I got my first job(with my own money that is), and I believe that there is no other album on which my money would've been better spent.The deftones single-handedly changed the way I listen to music, and continue to do so to this day.With that being said, I really do believe this is their finest work.Some would say that white pony is their best, and all of the big three (adrenaline, around the fur, white pony) are absolutely amazing in different ways.Adrenaline has raw, somewhat unfocused power (that a debuting badn should have).Around the fur is more focused, andthe album just flows a little bit better than adrenaline.White pony is easily their most experimental work (coincidentally their best selling also), but still doesn't fail to have the trademark deftones "feel" (and if you listen to the deftones, you know what I'm talking about).Around the fur just stands above the other two to me just by having songs that stick out more in my head.The entire album is phenomenal, and I honestly don't think it has a bad track or "filler".Some are stronger than others of course.My favorites are Dai the flu, damone, lhabia, my own summer, and lotion.Can't wait for their new album! (supposedly due out this fall)

    5-0 out of 5 stars FULL BLAST
    I WILL ADMIT THIS CD IS ONE THEIR BEST HONESTLY. I MEAN ON THIS ONE THIS IS WHERE THE DEFTONES GET ALL EXPERIMENTAL AND ISH. DJ FRANK DELGADO'S PUTTING IN SAMPLES AND JOINED DEFTONES AT THAT TIME. I AGREE WITH THE LAST REVIEW THAT THIS CD CAN APPEAL TO ANYONE THAT LIKES, OR DOESNT LIKE NU METAL/ HARD ROCK. I SEE ALTERNATIVE ROCK, AND HARD ROCK FUSED TOGETHER IN THIS ONE, AND IT SATNDS OUT AS WELL AS CHINO MORENOS VOCALS.

    DAI THE FLU, MY OWN SUMMER, BE QUIET AND DRIVE AND MASCARA ARE THE TOP TRACKS ON THIS ONE. THE SUBJECT MATTER SEEMS TO FOCUS MOSTLY ON LOVE AND ANGST ON THIS WHICH AT SOME POINT ALL OF US CAN RELATE TO. THIS ALBUM DESERVES A 5/5 ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    You want music that is loud, fast, and heavy? The Art of Drowning delivers on all three fronts. Songs like "Ever and a Day" and "The Days of the Phoenix" sound like a crunchy, no-nonsense cross between the joyful minimalism of the Vandals and heavier hardcore outfits such as Sick of It All and the Cro-Mags. Davey Havok's vocals are impassioned, focused, and undeniably sincere. Newest members Hunter (The Force) and Jade Puget (ex-Redemption 87), meanwhile, contribute to the album's dark intensity. The Art of Drowning is harder than Black Sails in the Sunset (1999), and all the better for it. --Jerry Thackray ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Classic punk
    Let me start this review with apersonal note: I'm not a punk.In fact, as a married 26-year old with a white-collar job and two cats, I'm not even close.Most punk, even from the more highly regarded bands in the genre (to say nothing of unspeakably awful poseur bands like Good Charlotte) bores me.Three-chord guitars and monotonous shouts just don't measure up in my book to the awesome power of metal bands like Meshuggah and Neurosis, or the creativity and musicianship of such alternative acts as Sonic Youth and Yo La Tengo.Sure, many punk bands (Minor Threat, the Clash, and the Dwarves come to mind) have had their moments, but I'll take (real) metal or alternative any day of the week.

    Another personal note: I had heard of (and heard) AFI before they were getting major radio airplay and selling records like hotcakes, thanks to a friend of mine who said I had to check out this great album called The Art of Drowning a few years ago.I gave it a couple listens, thought something along the lines of "eh, these guys ain't bad" and then forgot about it, but a while ago some reviews I read on this site piqued my interest, and I decided to give these guys another shot.Anyway, long story short, I'm glad I decided to look beyond my first impression, because the Art of Drowning is one mighty impressive album.It's not quite London Calling, or Refused's The Shape of Punk To Come (in this writer's opinion the best album released under the punk label, hands down), but it's an effort that shows a considerable amount of range and musicianship in a genre where those two qualities are often sorely lacking.

    Mainstream (read: boring) radio stations and publications may be all atwitter over that insipid and overrated new Green Day album (hey, tired leftist dogma!*That's* different!), but this is the real deal-a legitimately professional and diverse punk album.Since the raw, and rather juvenile, punk of their debut Answer That and Stay Fashionable (admittedly, the only other AFI album I've heard), these guys have evolved into a band that's clearly comfortable injecting some musicality and decidedly non-punk influences into their sound.After the brief intro of Initiation, we're treated to a roller coaster ride of complex arrangements (for a punk album, anyway), gargantuan hooks, and fierce call-and-response vocals-and that's just the next track, Lost Souls.There's also a nice little melodic break thrown in for good measure, including one of the few good guitar solos you'll ever hear on a punk album.

    The rest of the album only continues in this eclectic fashion.Naturally, there's plenty here to satisfy the hardcore punkers, as about half the songs on this album are blasts of pure speed and aggression, propelled by frenetic drumbeats and the signature in-your-face shouts of Davey Havok.However, they've obviously learned the value of slowing down as well, as tracks like Ever and a Day, Days of the Phoenix, and 6 to 8 see AFI going in a less aggressive direction, featuring big melodies, clean guitar playing, and emotive singing.Davey's singing voice leaves a bit to be desired, but it does provide a nice foil for the vitriolic shouting that's more often on display.

    Still, though, these guys are at their best when they're going full speed ahead.The guitars on this album are generally fast and hard enough to induce whiplash, and few bands can write an anthemic, fist-pumping chorus like AFI (Story at Three and Nephilim are probably exhibits A and B, but there have been plenty of others bouncing around my head over the past few days).Even the rhythm section's work is distinctly above average; just check out the tricky rhythms that pop up on Sacrifice Theory and Wester and you'll see what I mean.It's rare to see a punk band inject some melodic elements into their sound without going the "pop-punk" route (a path fraught with danger if ever there was one), but these guys manage to accomplish the trick seamlessly.Ultimately, the Art of Drowning is sure to appeal to just about anyone with even a passing interest in the punk genre.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hardcore Enthusiasts Must-Have!
    Havok's melancholy lyrics and the heavy aggressive insturmental of the rest of the band make this the best (and last) smaller-label AFI release to date. This album, although doesn't carry the sharp recording quality nor the same melodic insturmental that Sing the Sorrow does, this is still the first album they released that had any reasonably soft songs at all, but they are able still to back it upwith fast, rough, hardcore punk classics all within a few seconds of change. Hardcore anthems like "Days of the Phoenix" and "The Despair Factor" are found here, as well as the soft and well-spoken "Morningstar." This is a must-have for AFI fans who have griped for something found before the leap to major-label, and provides the best of both sides of older AFI.

    5-0 out of 5 stars perfect!
    I've had this album for awhile now and I've come to realize that it is truely amazing. I would give every track a five star rating.The Art of Drowning is in fact my personal favorite album that AFI has released.
    If you're a fan of fast punky music with a slight gothic twist, you are sure to enjoy this album as much as i have.If you're just getting into AFI, i recommend you start with this one.Davey's vocals are absolutely beautiful, and the bands amazing talent shines the whole way through.
    Each track on here has its own unique sound and they are all quite catchy.The songs at the beginning of the CD are louder and faster, then they sort of mellow out near the end.I could listen to this album over and over and never grow tired of it.Please, do yourself a favor and buy this album today. You won't regret it! ... Read more

    After listening to the previews of some of the songs on this website I have deemed this album "bad" or "not fly". I suggest you spend your money on arcade games or fountain soda at the mall. Or if you do buy it, spend your remaining change on some glue so you can at least listen to it higher than a kite.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stud album and best Sugar Ray
    First of all for the people who said this one is lame...

    Just shut up and go listen to In the Pursuit of Leisure losers.

    With that said this is Floored, which came out in 1997 two years removed from Lemonade and Brownies. They don't even sound the same because L&B was hard as hell to comprehend while Floored was easier to access. Also who could forget "Fly" which made the album look awkwardly 1-sided with a light song and 10 harder. Now onto the review shall we?

    1. RPM: Intro is awesome and so are DJ Homicide's race car samples with the sounds to match on guitar. 5/5

    2. Breathe: The song barely gives you time to breathe because it's exceptional and stiff. 5/5

    3. Anyone: More upbeat on the chorus then the other two were but still very good. 4.5/5

    4. Fly: The big hit song...what else to say? 4/5

    5. Speed Home California: Intesnity of thrash and punk styling make this one a winenr! 5/5

    6. High Anxiety: Starts off slowly but builds momentum. 4/5

    7. Tap, Twist, Snap: Okay song...not as strong as the others. 3/5

    8. American Pig: Guilty pleasure song of mine! Great chorus and the openining and intermitten guitars are awesome. 6/5

    9. Stand and Deliver: This is like Southern meets Ska in a sense but it makes due for a good song. 4/5

    10. Cash: If you can stand the F-bomb a lot then this is a good speed song with funny effects from Homicide. 4.5/5

    11. Invisible: Slow down and power hitting metal song. 4.5/5

    12. Right Direction: short but good for the time it had. 3.5/5

    13. Fly W/out Cat: See #4. 4/5

    Overall rating: 4.8/5

    -This was major improvement from L&B and singaled the height of intensity for Sugar Ray. Unfortunately, the intensity died down some for 14:59 and all together on the self titled and ITPOL. But take this for what it's worth and that's a bay side trash outing which will never be forgotten by hardcore fans and old school Sugar Ray fans alike. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Nicholas Hytner's new musical drama Center Stage focuses on the competitive world of professional dance and, like Fame before it, features plenty of music meant to keep your feet moving. TheRed Hot Chili Peppers' cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground" and the Stevie Wonder-influenced Jamiroquai's two contributions would've found better company among the classical works of Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev featured in the movie than with the pop product that fills this soundtrack. New teen sensation Mandy Moore bookends the album with "I Wanna Be with You," featured both as straight pop confection and as a slightly techno-ed remix (the Soul Solution Mix). This time, the Diane-Warren-songwriter-for-hire tune is the ballad "If I Was the One," performed perfunctorily by the Baltimore duo Ruff Endz. The rest is the teen quartet P.Y.T., undistinguished stylists such as Ashley Ballard and Cyrena, and a Michael Jackson tune from Bad. Might sound OK during a workout at the gym, but not as serious listening. --Rob O'Connor ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Center Stage Soundtrack
    When I first saw the movie, I was skeptical about the music.I was expecting the soundtrack to have all of the classical stuff that had been used for the more mainstream performances.Instead, they included songs like First Kiss and I Wanna Be With You (which I have to say is not my favorite song).All in all, a well-rounded soundtrack.I'm really glad they left Come Baby Come on the soundtrack.4 stars.
    Disappointments: They left "Candy" off the soundtrack, and put on "I Wanna Be With You."Small mistake there.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack
    The Soundtrack was as good as the movie with a few exceptions.

    I could do without the Latino song "Come Baby Come" which not many people like to listen to unless dancing in a Salsa bar. Also one of the better songs I beleive it's called "Candy" is missing from the soundtrack.This would be the song during the warm-up at the dance studio. Why must they cut songs that should be on the soundtracks out of them?

    5-0 out of 5 stars great for a workout at the gym
    After seeing the film 'center stage' I fell in love with the music and immediantly went out and bought the soundtrack. The cd consists and very dancable tracks that can be played over and over again. Some of the best would have to be those featured at the end of the film, Micheal Jackson's classic 'The way you make me feel', the beautiful ballad 'If I was the one' by ruff endz and the sizzleing dance anthem 'canned heat', performed by Jamiroquai. These would be my pick of the bunch. Special mention should go to Mandy Moore, whose 'I wanna be with you' is a perfect piece of pop ballad heaven and fits nicely into the film. The talented group P.Y.T contribute a couple of songs, the pick of these would have to be 'We're Dancing' which is a wonderful addition to the album with its smooth sound and catchy lyrics. 'Cosmic girl' by Jamiroquai and 'Higher ground' by the red hot chilli peppers are also worth a mention. This album is so good it practically lives in my cd player and is always being borrowed by my friends. Overall this is one heck of a great album! ... Read more
