5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Album! 7 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
So there I was, Summer '97, sat in the now defunct Wembley Stadium awaiting the arrival on stage of U2. As I was sat enjoying the crowd and weather, one of the days support acts snuck onto stage without grabbing my attention too much...then BANG! This band filled the stadium with the kind of energy and emotion that I was not expecting till the very end of the night! Audioweb were providing an amazing set of music that lifted the entire crowd and really left it's mark on me. I was stunned by the way the band played together and the amazing ever-varying vocals of Martin Merchant. So, upon returning home I promptly set about grabbing myself a copy of one of their albums. Fireworks City has got to be one of the most exciting musical discoveries I've made for myself. From the loud upbeat opening track to the sample filled finale, this album is an extremely varied landscape of sound that has been a regular in my cd player for many years now. The rocking opening of the album leads into some pure emotions, see Personal Feeling, and then continues to hit home with other stand-out tracks Sentiments For A Reason, Freefall and Control. If you enjoy well crafted music and like your tunes to really do something to you then pick up a copy. You won't be disappointed!

In this case the term can be used for both album AND band. A band known to be 'unpigeonholeable', were just TOO different to gain serious, long lasting success. Had they been a part of a musical movement that was influenced more by ska/punk/rock/whatever and had the music press not been too racist/scared to feature a white 'indie' band with a black lead vocalist, then maybe things would have swung more in their favour. They had the swagger, the confidence and the attitude to fit in with the scene at the time, and their songs were certainly as good, and in most cases better than most of their peers. So, this album then. Well, the problems they had during the recording process are well documented (if you know where to look!) but apart from a couple of cliched and/or dated sounding samples this album soars from beginning to end. There are a LOT of musical styles, not just from one song to another but from one verse to another! I won't go in to details about the songs, if you're reading this then you know Audioweb exist and as that is the case then you're probably reading this because you need convincing that you should buy this album. I DIDN'T buy this album when it came out. I saw it on offer 2 or 3 years after release and took a risk for £2.99. By this time, the band was defunct. I, like a lot of others just didn't buy in to the Audioweb experience at the time for one reason or another, had we done, then this band could have acheived top ten status on a more regular basis. This album sees them hitting their stride, fusing all their influences into their own unmistakable sound. 'Freefall' is as epic and as moving as ANY song from ANY genre and if you still need convincing that you should own this cd then this song ALONE is worth any money you'll be asked to part with. Fortunately for you, this album goes for pennies!
