Little by little, heartland America is starting to wake up to the fact that grunge is dull classic rock. Here's a frickin' great Denver foursome who might be what you get if you crossed Flower (and Versus) with Mission of Burma (and the Volcano Suns), Flop, the Magnolias, and Swervedriver. This has it all: thick buzz, throaty, arching vocals, dense guitar chording and toasty-burned bass/drums churning up the place, and the variety of moods sets these folks apart. Best of all, they have the edge of a guillotine blade. Promising, powerful group on the rise; the second half, starting with "Lot" absolutely thunders! This CD compiles the ten songs they've released on vinyl for three different labels, so this is the place to start.
