4.0 out of 5 stars Eh? 27 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I am writing this after reading that rather long rant below (or above). Rocket Science are Rocket Science and not an out and out rock band. I would be disappointed if I bought this CD and expected to be rocked in my living room. You can't compare this to Jet, Datsuns, Led Zeppelin or even Van Halen! This is a good album (and also a great live band-highly recommend catching them. Lead singer on organ and theramin is a treat). I'm not going to start comparing this to other bands (no help I know in a review!) just go and listen to some samples or in a shop before buying. They are an exciting new band and when everyone moves on from Jet, I believe they will be the new Aussie band NME are talking about.

4.0 out of 5 stars original and irresistable 19 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
Contact High from Rocket science is high-energy, retro style rock at its best. Though hard to describe, there's is something addictive about this CD that makes you just keep playing it. The futurisitic lyrics and the use of a theramin makes it unique and so different from other current music. And I enjoy each song too much to pick a favourite.
Personally I think "Run like a Gun" with a more bouncy upbeat feel should have been released as the single over "Being Followed", but I like both songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who is James Lister? 25 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
That's right, he's a numb nuts. I really pity people like him. For starters he can't write properly. What's with all the joined up words mate? Makes for a terrible read. Ever heard of a 'space bar'? I'm glad I don't live anywhere near you if you think it's real cool to show off your so called musical taste by cranking out The Darkness & Van Halen at high volume. Hahahaha! Do you have a poodle perm as well? I bet you do.

And to not like the hammond organ. Shameful. Stand in the corner and repeat after me......"I must not love cock rock over decent music"

As for Rocket Science. Just whack on Being Followed and grin. It's a great track. Reminds me of the MAKE UP and other garage bands that take their influence from the likes of The Seeds and other such Nuggets. Nice distorted organ, twitching groove. I remember seeing the video on MTV, loving it then buying it. Great song.

Johnny Winter over the Stones? Hahahahaha! I'm off to laugh even more at poor poor James.

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem 19 Aug 2009
By smee
Format:Audio CD
Music has changed a lot in recent years. The crossover between indie and dance, leading to guitar music with a decent beat may seem pretty mainstream now, Arctic Monkeys, Killers, The Strokes and Franz Ferdinand being examples but these guys have been at it for years. I don't like using examples because nothing sounds like Rocket Science, they have a unique sound, assited by the hauntingly funky organ playing. This is "band" music than you can stick on at a party and everyone can get moving to, rather than sitting in a darkened corner contemplating chord transitions. One Robot and Being Followed could be released today and it would sound fresh and inventive, they really were ahead of the game back in 2003. Welcome abord the DC110 was a good album but this surpasses it in every way. Buy this album, listen to it then listen again, it can sit in that part of your collection that you are really quite proud of and take some enjoyment in cherishing this band that really should have been bigger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant fusion of old and new 20 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This band first came to my attention during their ill-fated tour of Europe in 2003 supporting The Music, they so nearly made it but fell at the final hurdle. Which is a shame because Rocketscience are/were a tremendous band, bursting with enough energy to outrun an army of coked-up Duracell bunnies.

This album sounds like the future but has 60's ideals, very heavy on hammond organ, screeching vocals a la Garage and an all over a very fuzzy production effort (in a good way)....well for me anyway. Part of me suspects the main reasons these lads never made it was because of 1. No obvious singles scream out and 2. The production was just a bit too jarring for the time (The Hives utilized the same format, though they did have the timeless "Hate To Say I Told You So").

As an album though, it's excellent. We start with "Heavy Traffic" then it's onto the paranoia of "Being Followed" (the bass-riff sounds identical to the underground stage music from Super Mario Bros 1 on the NES...i'm deadly serious). It's a terrific song nontheless, actually one of the albums best. The subtle "Hyperspace" gets under your skin with each subsequent listen. "Going Away", "Run Like A Gun" and "Crazy" continue the 60's formula (the latter being a time signutare changing number, merciful as it's bookended by fairly underwhelming sections).

As I mentioned earlier this album does sound of it's time (2003) and beyond also. The riffs, licks, lyrics and song structures sound very futuristic. Lead off single "One Robot" is delightful to listen to, with it's pulsating bass, deft drumming and "robotic" chorus. One song i found hard to like was "Open Air Channel", it had great potential but really dragged in the end.
