Album Review

The fourth full-length from this post-rock/hardcore/punk rock quartet is really just more of the same, but the same really isn't so bad. Those who love the band will certainly find it appealing, but those who were drawn in by earlier efforts will probably notice that the styles start to get a bit tired and that this record is at times a rehash of previous outings. With chugging guitars, plenty of energy, throaty screamed vocals, and no overwhelming hooks, the opening "Southeast First" is a pretty clear indication of what is to come. Amidst the usual crunchy noise, there are some interesting new guitar sounds the group experiments with on this record, and there are also some interesting new song structures given a preliminary run-through. From straight punk rock efforts to much more restrained and laid-back numbers, Hot Water Music made this record with no pretenses, and while it doesn't succeed in all aspects, they certainly couldn't be bothered. Triumphantly declaring their feelings on the endearing "Our Own Way," the band explains, "Who gives a f*ck what anybody says/We'll live and love until we're dead/Holding on to what we've come to know." HWM exist in a unique niche, and those who have grown to love it will certainly accept this album into loving arms. It isn't as strong as the records that preceded it, but, at the end of the day, anything this band has to offer is still a lot more honest and explosive than what most of their peers have. ~ Peter J.

Customer Reviews

Great Record

This is a great introduction to Hot Water Music if you're not too familiar with their stuff. It's from the sort of "inbetween" period where they started going from a grittier to a more polished sound. It's good music and if you dig this album you'll probably dig all of their stuff. Sadly I think this is really the only place you can pick it up (except for maybe eBay) because I believe it's out of print.

really great album

something about chuck and chris's voices, i just dont know why, but i love their music. hot water is one of the most complete bands you will find. Unique guitars, killer and i mean killer basslines from the great jason black, and solid drums make this album a must have. some of my favorite songs are Our Own Way, It's Hard to Know, and Jet Set Ready.

No Division!

This is probably the most underrated of all of the Hot Water Music collection. There are some awesome songs on this and the album flows very well. I would highly recommend this album as well as Fuel For The Hate Game to get into this band. They put a lot of emotion into their work and you can tell by listening to it.
