4.0 out of 5 stars POSSIBLY THE HEAVIEST ALBUM OF ALL TIME? 3 April 2005
By Mark53
Format:Audio CD
Well, it has along with the flock 'dinosaur swamp' one of the greatest covers of all time but in my humble opinion this is one of the heaviest albums of all time. The whole thing is a sonic assault from start to finish-think Hawkwind with better musicianship (Simon House joined them) and you've about got it. Guitarist Tony Hill has a unique voice and a mean way with the wah-wah pedal and the violin/guitar battle on 'death warmed up' is unlike anything i've ever heard (note the complicated triplets at the end)even the quieter interludes 'walking down their outlook' are short lived and give way to more manic riffing. The only downside is the track 'missing out' which outstays its welcome by a good five minutes. Nevertheless a great album and much more accessible than the other 'high tide' which is louder, heavier and well, pretty tedious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic! 11 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
I received this album this morning and it really is a mix of The Doors meets mid/late Ozzy era Black Sabbath with a mad electric violin flying all over the place. As I come from a heavy metal background this album is not really an intense listen but it is a quality and reasonably heavy, and fans of the aforementioned bands would love this and though I'm loathe to use the term, fans of "stoner rock" would really dig this too. I only gave this four stars because I think the violin over shadows some parts of the album that a heavy guitar riff would be better suited to, however I 'll probably be regretting this choice after a few more spins anyway...and the singer does really sound like Jim Morrison!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Very Heavy Metal with a melodic heart 18 July 2013
By Mark Shackelford TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Frighteningly HUGE riffs overlaid with screaming guitars and violin. High Tide's first album "Sea Shanties" must have disconcerted a number of innocent purchasers (perhaps like the legendary King Crimson concert in front of a crowd expecting some gentle Soul music...)

No let up in these tracks - which power along in a timeless fashion - could be something from a 90's Smashing Pumpkins clone, or else fall-out from a Pearl Jam session - but much MUCH nastier...

Just the sort of thing if you have a headache - you will certainly not notice it whilst playing this. Loud. Very loud. VERY VERY LOUD.

And yet - there is some beauty behind the HUGE sound. There are sections of melancholy, almost gentle passages, but then the onslaught starts again.

And possibly my favourite album cover - the Durer-esque sailing ship (the Marie Celeste) ploughing through a tide of sea monsters. Those were the days...

5.0 out of 5 stars Review 21 Dec 2012
By Harry
Format:Audio CD
Don`t really need to review as I knew what to expect, one of my favourite bands in the 70s, saw them live quite a few times, excellent every time.
