Format: Audio CD
Freindly as a Hand Grenade ranks as the most refined contribution of Tackhead to industrial music. Tackhead consists of a core of extremely gifted musicians; Keith LeBlanc (now of Blanc records), Skip McDonald (of Little Axe) Doug Wimbish (on-U sound & Living Colour) and not forgetting Adrian Sherwood whose influence in production cannot be underestimated. This album also features the sublime vocals of Bernard Fowler. Far and away the best track on the album, 'Mind & Movement' combines the melodic voice of Fowler with a complex series of guitar riffs and samples built on the foundation of an unforgetable bass & beats partnership which underpins most of Tackhead's music. Despite the numerous musical highpoints, such as 'Tell me the hurt' and 'Tisking Time Bomb' some tracks are perhaps a little thin and rather drawn out. This aside the album remains, even after more than a decade refreshing to listen to and a valuable addition to anyone's collection.

I would beg leave to differ with the amazon.com reviewer who says that Strange Things is better than this, and instead say the exact opposite. They're both good, and if you like one you'll like the other, but this disc represents TACK>>HEAD's peak.

On a personal note, these guys were indeed great live - I saw them in Manchester, just after this album was released, when I was 15 (no idea how I got into the club at that age) and it still ranks as one of the best gigs I've been to, not least because you were free to mosey on up to the mixing desk and stand next to Adrian Sherwood as he went beserk on the pots and faders.

But I digress. What you get here is rather short on quantity (36 minutes) but with plenty of quality. All tracks are written by the group, except the short Prince Buster cover Ska Trek which bookends the album amusingly. Mind and Movement, Stealing and Ticking Time Bomb are the standout tracks, managing to combine imaginative and satirical use of samples with shattering original beats, Wimbish shaking the place with his bass and Skip McDonald fuzzing his guitar to pieces. The addition of Bernard Fowler for this album really brings them together as a group compared to Tackhead Tape Time which was more of an experimental contruction of samples and beats. Here, the experiments are over and you get more fully crafted tracks.

tackheads power is more restrained on this album .they enlist a vocalist and become a band rather than studio terrorists .surprisingly it works .every track is excellant .the hand grenade never quite detonates but the threat is there .u should get this.

Class debut album from one of On-U-Sounds great bands, 10 excellent tracks and in a remastered CD form. An excellent blend of musicians and great music. Well Recommended.

Lost opportunity! 29 July 2006
By Lovblad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok Tackhead are one of these groups that were probably better live than on record. They had actually supported Mark stewart and Gary Clail on some really great stuff but the records they released as a group never really seemed to gel in some way. The playing is great, the production fantastic but somehow it is too cerebral since they basically also want to be a funk group. The ideas would be plundered by many people later on but somehow I am not really sure why it sounds so cold.

good but not excellent 25 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album follows the line of other tackhead albums like power inc., it's a very good album but's not as great as "Strange things". If you want to buy an album i recomend to buy S.T first. Although it's very representative of what Tackhead is about: great bass sound, cool efects and a lot of psycodelia and industrial sounds. It' a good album but not enough to get 5 stars. And contains only 10 songs.
