Album Review

The future of rock & roll is surely guaranteed with acts such as American Hi-Fi. Delivering fresh new strains to the genre on their eponymous debut, they maintain a high quality standard throughout the whole record. The consistence of their work comes from providing pop/rock and raw, strong rock & roll. Stacy Jones, the band's frontman, previously worked with crews such as Letter to Cleo and Veruca Salt as a drummer. Here, he showcases his expertise, this time on guitar and vocals. Listening to the band's first single, "Flavor of the Weak," almost gives the impression of hearing the most common of pop acts trying to sell out a single and fly away. However, that thought rapidly gets dismissed with songs like "Surround" or "My Only Enemy," in which American Hi-Fi prove their skill and ability. Demonstrating a coherent musical direction, the team gashes their way on sincere and inspiring compositions such as "Safer on the Outside" and "Don't Wait for the Sun." The latter also represents the core of their songs: ideal pop/rock lyrics that aren't too transcendent, but are still thrilling enough to appeal to most young pop fans. American Hi-Fi aims high, and they certainly went even further on this pleasing disc.

Customer Reviews

these guys are good.

i was very suprised at how good these dudes were when i got the cd. i thought it might be a little too much like all the crappy pop bands out now, and it has its moments of it, but still really good. one person said it was explicit, and maybe for american hi-fi it is, but i've heard WAY worse than this. listen to the first five songs off of any blink-182 cd and i know there will be at least double the swears. the cd is cheap so if u have a few bucks and want a good cd, get these guys. u wont be dissapointed.

Amazing & Timeless.

I bought this album in 2001 when it first came out. It is now 2007 and I still consider this one of the best alt. rock albums to come out in the new millenium. I never get sick of it. It simply rocks. I know that in 30 years I can listen to this album because the songs and the sound is timeless. I also think that this album is one of the most underrated albums of the new millenium as well . . . it is a shame that such good music like this gets overlooked. I highly suggest that you buy this album . . . you will not regret it! Enjoy!

D-Fried's Review

Its about time an excellent alternative rock album has come out!!! seriously I haven't seen an album like this since "Enema of the State" and "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket". American Hi-Fi just needs time until they will be a huge hit. Trust me, I know American Hi-Fi will make alternative rock history...

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Drummer Stacy Jones already had his hand in rock & roll prior to his gig with American Hi-Fi. Having been a part of some of the 1990's biggest alternative acts, Letters to Cleo and Veruca Salt, Jones turned his experience inside out for his own musical project. While working on Nina Gordon's Tonight and the Rest of My Life solo album, Jones looked toward the vibrancy of Cheap Trick and cast the healthy rock sounds of American Hi-Fi. Jones, guitarist Jaime Arentzen, bassist Drew Parsons, and drummer...
