This is (at the time of writing) the lone full-length release from Kyuss stalwart John Garcia's band, Unida. Whilst there is no doubting the impact Kyuss's downtuned, elephantine riffage had on the metal/alternative landscape in the 90's, Garcia, with this new project, appears (perhaps wisely) to have ditched Kyuss's artier and more experimental pretensions in favour of a more straightahead sound that still carries some stoner overtones; and this approach has resulted in one of the best straightahead, balls-out hard rock albums I've ever heard. Garcia's vocal style hasn't changed much since the days of Kyuss, but you couldn't really pigeonhole Unida as Yet Another Stoner Band; they're far too energetic and there's not a trace of psychedelia. Pretensiousness is out the window and riffs, riffs and more riffs are the order of the day here (underpinned of course by Garcia's frankly superb vocals). You couldn't really quite classify them as metal, either, although they push that particular envelope quite hard.
Unida are brilliant in the same way the Stooges were brilliant; they aren't highly technically accomplished, their songs don't really have a great deal to say (except about women and drug use), but they do what they do with such power and passion that the result works really, really well and you cant help but be swept along by wave after wave of crushing riffs, deafening drums and bong-rattling distorted bass. And this, surely, is what a band of this sort is all about.
So, in conclusion, a kinda straightforward hard rock album, with defintite stoner overtones, but all the better for it. Kyuss/QOTSA/stoner fans will and should eat it up, but I can see it appealing perhaps to fans of the likes of AC/DC as well. Play it woofer-blowingly loud!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lets rock.....! 22 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"Coping" see's the return of Kyuss frontman John Garcia with an all new, all rocking band from the California deserts. Mix the best bits of Kyuss, add some early Sabbath, and then stir in liberal doses of late 80's Cult, and bake for 45 minutes for the bestest heavy rock to appear in ages! Definately an album not to miss if you like good, solid rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Immense Songs 6 July 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While difficult to get hold of for a decent price, this album is worth the investment if only for 2 of the very best songs you will ever hear. Very different from each other, but Human Tornado and You Wish are absolutely immense tunes. Human Tornado, a short-lived down-tuned rocker that leaves you wishing it was on repeat all day long. You Wish, with slow booming bass line and Garcia's soft moan, crawling beneath the setting desert sun. The rest of the album is certainly not filler material, but these are 2 of John Garcia's very best efforts, and that's saying something. Well worth getting hold of if either re-issued, or if available for anything less than the usual extortionate prices that some sellers are pricing it at.
