AllMusic Review by

Rockin' aggression and emotional complexity make for an attractive combination on Catchpenny's Dajom, a 1999 release that some journalists have compared to Live's work. To be sure, there are some parallels between Catchpenny and Live; however, introspective cuts like "I Wanna Be (On Fire)," "Little Shut Up," and "Kidding Myself" also make it clear that Catchpenny has an energy of their own. "Introspective" is the key word where this generally appealing, if uneven, CD is concerned; this group (whose lineup on Dajom includes singer Michael Seven, guitarist Brian Ferrell, bassist Michael Henry, and drummer Jeff Gretz) doesn't shy away from dealing with complex emotions. For those who like their alternative rock with a lot of introspection and some depth, Dajom is worth exploring.
