This is indeed a fine record, full of varying moods and textures, while it keeps a firm hand on its Rock and Roll identity. The guitar work is particularly good, and the mix is near perfect -- you can really easily hear all that is going on. The lyrics are very good as well. I like "In Flux,' which shows a hard-won maturity, and "Sunday Morning" a wistful look back at a love affair. The mood on "Bayou Bridge" is spookily cool, but the best is saved for last: "Wheels" is a song that could have been written by a young Brian Wilson, if he had only grown up nearer the Pasadena that is in Texas, rather than the one that is in California.
DJ Peter Merrett review - PBS 106.7FM, Melbourne Australia
"Kanude’s vocals are an unbelievably fluctuating blend of Roy Orbison and Glenn Danzig, providing listeners with that old-school sound mixed in a blender with a little rockabilly and a good amount of attitude." Travis Sabaitis - Bryan Farrish Radio Promotion "If this a debut then l can't wait for the follow up. Another rock inspired alt-country hoe-down would be just the thing to rouse this worn out soul so used to hearing uninspired tired repetitive rock served up by the majors. Great songs, great CD."
