AllMusic Review by

On the surface, one might wonder if the world really needs another group that welds Led Zeppelin/Black Sabbath/UFO influences to funky rhythms. Happily, Port Coquitlam's N.O.S. (Not Otherwise Specified) throws in enough quirky, original twists to merit multiple listenings. Recorded over three days at Vancouver's Mushroom Studios, the range of dynamics covered--from subtle acoustic touches to raging but always tuneful blasts--belies the low-budget approach to production. One of Walking Through Live's major strengths is the lyrics. Through the din of guitars, N.O.S. melodies have a way of insinuating their way into your subconscious. You might just find yourself humming "Monday Morning" on your way to work one day ... If your local record emporium doesn't carry this disc, you can order it directly from N.O.S. at 2842 Burns Road, Port Coquitlam, B.C., V3C 3V4.
