GROOVE-LADEN, STRAIGHT-FORWARD HARD ROCK!
This is another delightful slab of hard rock that passed my way, largely by accident. Front-man Myron was one of the vocalists of now defunct Workhorse Movement (who's release, Sons Of The Pioneers met with mixed reviews at the time), and I originally didn't have huge hopes for this album, but was drawn to it nonetheless. In fact, all the members except the drummer were in TWM, but don't let that sway you, as much on this album has nothing in common with that band; except Myron's vocals which are rather distinctive. And, I have to say, this album is well worth the money.
Some tracks start off very much like Monster Magnet songs (such as "Crop Circles"), before reaching back into the straight-forward rock.
Black Sabbath: you can hear their influence in the riffs on this album, as well as influences such as Led Zepplin, Hendrix, and a bit of Queens Of The Stone Age, too. Largely a less-stoned Stoner album (if that makes sense), but more fairly, this is just an excellent hard rock album. Different from everything else that's kicking about the scene at the moment, it's a breath of fresh air in the NWOAHM-infested scene. Unpretentious, uplifting and overall a very satisfying album. Would be an excellent summer soundtrack.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Dirty Americans isn't just a clever name - the band (comprising Myron - vocals, Jeff Piper - guitar, Pete Bever - bass and drummer Jeremiah Pilbeam) make, in their own words, "dirty American rock". They came together in 2001 and from their first rehearsal clicked immediately. Influenced by Led Zeppelin, Queens of the Stone Age and Grand Funk Railroad they set out to produce loud, riff heavy 70s rock n roll that would fill arenas the world over.
The first thing that strikes you about "Strange Generation" is the volume. Loud, proud and thrillingly bombastic it is imbued with all that has made rock from the 70s to the 90s so exciting. "Car Crash"' rocks like a mini-Queens Of The Stone Age, "Burn You Down" is as catchy as flu (but way more fun) and "Time In Space" is stoner rock par excellence.
To call this "classic rock" would do this a disservice. This ain't no ironic Darkness style mickey-take. Neither is it backward thinking indulgence, unable to see beyond 1979. Dirty Americans have produced a fresh, invigorating record that rocks, rolls and explodes like thunder. A truly awesome album: powerful, punchy and a surprising treat.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Can't say I was taken by this album even two listens in. There's no thrills here and to me the musicians are certainly talented but lack that edge in song writing and composition. Thus the price tag on this site for used!
