Album Review

Water is another fine album by Saigon Kick that unfortunately undermines its own merits by trying to employ too many sounds at once. The same problem plagued Saigon Kick's first two releases, as the bandmembers hedged their bets while trying to embrace the dying metal scene as well as the embryonic alternative one at the same time. The band presents a dizzying array of stylistic shifts in the course of 14 songs, changing from alternative to punk, pop, metal, and ballads at the drop of a hat. The group most resembles Jane's Addiction for the majority of the album, although it offers a nifty cover of David Bowie's "Space Oddity" done with a real Mick Ronson flair. In a way, the album resembles a very scaled-down version of Smashing Pumpkins' Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. However, Saigon Kick wasn't as adept at this approach and the record, while solid, is too schizophrenic to leave much of a lasting impression. Eclecticism has been a hallmark of good rock since Revolver, and in the right hands this approach can be a welcome relief from artists who rewrite one song for their whole careers. However, Saigon Kick overdoes it and can't quite pull it off. It's definitely better than the band's alleged hair metal roots would indicate, but Greatest Mrs.: The Best of Saigon Kick would be a better overall choice for most.

Lame iTunes

Their cover of Space Oddity is on this album. Kind of lame for iTunes to call this a complete album

Still sounds good 2 me

Coming off of the success of the Lizard, this album is really good. Yeah, I know Jason Bieler is said to be a control freak, but so are alot of other singers with LSD( you know, lead singers disease). I am a big fan of Phil Varone and the drums seem to be replaced by alot of electronics, but I still think it is a good effort. One Step Closer, Water, Torture, My Heart, these are very clasic Saigon Kick and the newer sounding stuff is good too. I say give it a listen, SK fans shouldnt be dissapointed.

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,...
