This is the first CD of GVSB I ever had, and i have to admit, the first time i played i was shaken by the way the two bass players mixed their heavy, rocking sound with the keyboard, the guitar, and drums. From Eli Janney's astounding distorted bass just filling my ears with sound, to Alexis Fleisig's impressive drum technique, i was riveted. Scott McCloud's scratchy, low singing is a feast for the ears and goes perfectly with the mood swings that exist in this CD. Johnny Temple's melodic tones as he crams his bass to the max really touched me. Their live show only accentuates them, blowing you into the wall with a tangible wall of sound. For anyone contemplating this CD, get it. It is a sound investment and you won't be disappointed.
