Customer Reviews

A great disc from an awesome band!

With “The Lizard,” Saigon Kick managed to bridge the gap between metal and the then new grunge genres. From crushing and heavy guitar riffs to lush vocal harmonies, The Lizard has it all. IMHO, what kept SK from becoming a household name was the one thing that I truly love about them… their diversity. If you like what the radio feeds you… this probably is not the disc for you. If you like adventurous hard rock and metal, then climb aboard!

Better than most reviewers think!!!

For those of you that want that one power ballad and don't consider the rest of the release should 1) realize that Saigon Kick didn't even write 'Love is On the Way', it's a remake, and 2) quit trying to collect all the power ballads that you can, only to go back in a time machine to your favorite skating rink with you girlfriend and have the best couple's skate of your life, realizing that this is a pitiful, desperate and futile event. This is a great CD. It was pretty heavy when it was released, and of course by today's standards it sounds dated (the production, anyhow). These guys were cursed by releasing something so great at the end of hair metal and the beginning of grunge. The guitarist on this is pretty ripping STILL and there are great harmonies all over this CD. This is more hard rock than anything, and the strong songwriting holds up. If you still need your power ballad fix, 'All I Want' is, to me, a much better song than 'Love Is On The Way'. Let your ears be the judge, ignore the radio and you'll probably like this a lot. Most people that I play this for can't believe that these guys actually wrote some great songs, they only mention 'that one song' (which I never heard on the radio, I lived out of the country). I wanted to give this 4 stars (because I don't like some stuff) but I will instead give this 5 stars to even out the roller disco one-hit-wonder seeker's pitiful comments. Rock on!

Simply awesome

Saigon Kick is a great band, sad history and bad choices but the music is always good. This album is proof, I think anyone who is open to new music would enjoy this album. The Lizard is probably one of their best, but I would look into every album done accept their last album. Some of their best albums are Saigon Kick, Water, Devil in the Details, and of course The Lizard. Also their demo tracks are interesting, however I am disappointed that these songs are not available on iTunes. Something that I hope will change. I hope to hear more from Saigon Kick, as the world is in need of some better music.


Formed: 1988

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Hard rockers Saigon Kick formed in Miami in 1988 with a lineup including Matt Kramer, Jason Bieler, Tom DeFile and Phil Varone. The band played around the region, and signed with Third Stone/Atlantic in 1990. Saigon Kick's self-titled debut LP did okay, but the following year's album, The Lizard, broke the band with the number-12 single "Love Is on the Way". Just months after the group's success, Tom DeFile left, later to be replaced by Chris McLernon for 1993's Water. The album proved disappointing,...
