5.0 out of 5 stars The Kinda Mzk I Like 19 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This was the first GvsB album I heard and was instantly impressed with their bass heavy sound, and scott Macloud's growling vocal style.
This is simple, no frills rock music, and songs like Super Fire, Disco 666, TheKindaMzkYouLike, and Click Click, are worthy of a band that at one time was being tipped as the new Nirvana.
So, if you like Bands such as Fugazi, and At The Drive-In, then I strongly reccomend you discover this brillient album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, did this one ever grow on me. A great 90s sex record. 13 Mar 2000
By Scott M. Blish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must agree with the first part of the "music fan from Cali"'s review below. When I first picked up this CD on the recommendation of my friends Ted and Lobes, I was not impressed at all, except for the first song, the single "Super-Fire", which I liked more for one discordant, cool note in the guitar riff than for the song as a whole. :-) "Overrated," I told myself, and filed _House of GVSB_ away.
That filing-away turned out to be temporary. Every once in a while, I would get out this CD during a long drive in the car to hear "Super-Fire", and the aural treats of some of the other songs, especially "Disco 666", the discordant, atonal background noise bridge to "Life in Pink", and the driving riff to "TheKindaMzkYouLike" grew on me over time. I knew, almost a year and a half after first purchasing the CD, that it had completely grown on me when, while working delivering pizzas, I found myself singing, loudly enough to be heard by others, the line "Your baby's dress is on fire...." from "Wilmington" (which has replaced "Super-Fire" as my favorite song on the album) while walking up to complete strangers' doors to give them their food. :-)
Along with Soul Coughing's "El Oso" (her favorite album), this was the album that my girlfriend at the time and I most liked to....um....well...how shall I put this..."get it on" to. :-) And is it ever suited to that purpose. Other than Eli's breathy, low voice, I can't really describe why _House of GVSB_ is that way, but this is an incredibly erotic album. Great mood music for copulating 90s couples. :-) The songs are also well-written and originally-conceived, without subscribing to the usually bland alterna-formula that so many similar bands fall into. My friend John, on hearing this album, said, "This is what that stupid band Filter would sound like if they actually had talent," and after thinking about it a little, I kind of agree with him.
If you don't like this one at first, you might want to give it another chance - the charms of these songs are definitely not apparent on the first listen, but they reveal themselves over time. Or listen to it with your significant other; that might speed up the process some. :-) Which is probably just the way Girls Against Boys intended it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great band, great songs, 2 bass players!! 21 May 2001
By wyn cole - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I got this three years ago when i saw that the record shop I brought it from accidently confused this with a single so i got it for next to nothing ;-)It totaly blew me away, i'd never heard anything like this before. 'Super-fire' is a brilliant opening track, the two basses are formidable, and the guy's voice is great even if he can't carry out a melody very well (he smokes way too [much]). After that the quality never dips and all the songs sound different and fresh to my ears. I could try and review every track but i don't need to, just buy it and see what you think, you won't be disapointed. A week after getting this I had all their albums in my collection and i didn't have much money at the time so that was quite a big deal for me. I'm just gutted I still havn't seen them live, PLEASE COME TO WALES!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant classic 17 Sep 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I dunno what guy at the bottom is whining about, this album is one of the best in the last half of the decade, and as for it ripping off GLU, sorry, GVSB was doing this long before God Lives Underwater, and doing it much better than GLU ever will. songs like "Vera Cruz" and "Cash Machine" probably can't ever be topped by these NY bad boys. And seeing them live is an experience like nothing else, especially when Rage Against the Machine hits the stage right after GVSB is finished trashing your eardrums.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent and a half 24 Jun 2010
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw Girls Against Boys in a small theater in New York City in 1995. The friend I went with remarked above the boom and beer that the band was "a very dangerous machine."

He was right. With two basses and an almost 60s farfisa-like keyboard, this band was all about thunder and wallop. It is incredible how enjoyable a giants boot can be when the boot lands in the middle of your living room. The singers rasp increases the booming footprint a few sizes

And that boom is what House Of GSVB is all about. This was not one of those 1990s album where the band preformed route genre experiments through a 70 minute album. This disc is short compared to the standards of the post-Nirvana era, but it is amazing how relentless Girl's Against Boy's attack is. Straight bass and damage through the entire album.

Which makes it work. This album dates well, and you'll hear why this band seemed ready to break big around 1996, back in the last days of a band and an album being able to take over what was still a small and local world. That world is gone now, and Girls Against Boys never did get the international fame they seemed poised to.

But listen to House Of GSVB, and you'll be scratching your head wondering why, as soon as you pick up that smear on the ground this album leaves--you.

5.0 out of 5 stars consistent and amazing 22 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
from reading the other reviews, it seems many people got this album only to listen to Super-fire. I'll admit, that song is a great way to open the album, and it is one of the best songs as well. However, this is an album where you can listen to every song without finding one you don't like, and no they are not all the same. From the first track, to TheKindaMzkYouLike to Wilmington, this is a very solid album. The last track, Zodiac Love Team, shows the band's industrial roots and could have come out of the sessions with Fugazi's Brendan Canty that became their Nineties vs. Eighties album. In my opinion, House of GVSB is one of the top three GVSB albums, along with Venus Luxure and Cruise Yourself. After this album came Freak*on*ica, which was too electronica for my taste, and then You Can't Fight What You Can't See, which is good but too polished in my opinion. This is an excellent overall album, but if you have never heard GVSB before, I would start with Venus Luxure, or maybe Cruise Yourself.
