Bad Seed – Review

May 1, 1995

Almost Soundgarden, almost early Metallica, but they never get that keyed up. A sludged-out-Sabbath-drone, nice vocal harmonies and a leaden low-end thud.

Pie – Superhorse – Review

May 1, 1995

Noisy and totally wacked, these guys are great! They cram more screaming feedback and punky guitar slop into the record grooves than you’d think possible.

Mad Season – Above – Review

May 1, 1995

With Layne Staley’s (Alice in Chains) smooth vocals and Mike McCready’s (Pearl Jam) wailing Les Paul, could they go wrong?

Love Pollution – Review

May 1, 1995

Solid classic rock ‘n’ roll from Boston’s rock champs. Great piano and slide guitar work. No real screamers or quick tempoed glam, just rich, timeless music.

Kix – Show Business – Review

May 1, 1995

15 years and still kickin’ it out. They haven’t changed a bit. They still play AC/DCish, laced with rockisms galore. Some great lyrics in there.

Dirty Looks – One Bad Leg – Review

April 1, 1995

A little more mid-tempo then I remember, but nostalgia and six years of shots could have affected that. Live versions of “Oh Ruby” and “Cool From the Wire.”

Crab – Review

April 1, 1995

Great four-track recording. The singer has a passionate voice and all the musicians are top notch.

Beowulf – 2 Cents – Review

April 1, 1995

The songs range from indie rock to metal to snarly Pistols-esque punk with a bit of Jello vocal jiggle. The production spotlights the siner and ignore the band.

Otis – Review

April 1, 1995

Otis trudges and roars like angst-ridden young men should. Groove and 10-ton hooks to move yer ass.

Means To An End – Review

April 1, 1995

The vocals are passionate and rich, the guitars are pleasantly noisy pop, and the strolling bass and intricate drumming provide a sound foundation.

The Cult – Review

March 1, 1995

Putting progressive, psychedelic, and hard rock influences in their stew, The Cult come out with balls and intelligence.
