Like every GVSB record, you have to listen quite a lot of times until you're finally into the album. With "You Can't Fight What You Can't See" it's the same...I had to put on the whole album 4 times until I could decide whether I liked it or not... I remember when I listened to it the 1st time I disliked it, but after 1,5 years it's one of those few cd's you never get bored.
The Album kicks-off with the astonishing "Basstation", a brilliant chorus-riff that -once you're into it- you want to hear over and over again. Addictive as hell and -I believe- their best song ever! "Miami Skyline" and the great "The Comedown" have that very sexy, typical GvsB sound like most of the tracks, except the very catchy "BFF" and beautiful closer "Let It Breathe", which is one of my favourite tracks.
"Kicking The Lights" kicks off with a QOTSA-esque groove but just when you're thinking "wow this 's gonna be the song of the album", the chorus comes into play and screws up the whole song. Sad, but true...
After all, if you like their sound, Scott's sexy voice and want to discover them, you can buy this one with your eyes closed!

A Major Achievement 18 May 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, folks, this is it, the competition for the best 2002 record is already over, and the winner is "You Can't Fight What You Can't See." Rock music would have been dead long time ago if it weren't for such innovative records, that I would rank in the all-time greats, along with "Reggatta de Blanc" in the 70's or "Nevermind" in the 90's, even though GvsB's music is not really rock or punk.
This record is simply perfect. GvsB returned to pairing with Ted Niceley for what is - in my opinion - their best record to date. As stated above, the 90's had "Dookie" and "Nevermind" as major influencial records, the 2000's may very well have "You Can't Fight What You Can't See," provided Jade Tree can handle sufficient distribution of this record. This is no rock, this is no punk, this is no electronica, this is just, well, GvsB. The major difference with their previous efforts is that all the pieces seem to be finally in place. The more accessible songs (Basstation, BFF, Kicking the Lights) should have no problem topping the college rock charts, and hopefully the alternative charts. That's the least we can wish for these guys for such a wonderful achievement.

Great Return to Classic GVSB Sound 16 May 2002
By Chase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
No more electronic gimmickry, this album is back to the solid basslines and straightforward rock of Venus Luxure. All but two or three of the songs really grabbed me immediately, and there are some real classics here. What a pleasure it was to pop this new CD in and turn it up nice and loud! The band has never sounded better.

Girls Against Boys Against the World 15 May 2002
By CGB73 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After a four year struggle with the omnipresent Geffen label, Girls Against Boys has returned to exacting form with a juggernaut of an album. You Can't Fight What You Can't See finds Janney and Co. returning to the striped down aesthetics that made House of GVSB and Venus Luxure No 1.Baby instant post-punk classics. The opening track Basstation flirts with a churning guitar riff and bass line only to give way to a hook most deep sea fisherman would give an arm and a leg for. And while Ressonace may be the most radio friendly song the boys have ever written,it sparkles with the oil-drenched glory of all things Manhatten.The album concludes with " Let it Breathe" in which the slowly building tempo cascades over the chorus. This may be GVSB most fluid and cohesive album to date and I for one ,am just fine with that

the drawing board always helps 12 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have listened to GVSB since Venus Luxure came out, and that in my eyes is still the greatest GVSB album by far. House of GVSB continued on that sound, built on it, and came out with an album almost as amazing, but the oldies die hard with me, and when Freakonica came out we all expected the hard hitting, raspy vocals, with heavy bass, drums and great amounts of sound attacking from all angles. The disappointment of Freakonica, though it had 2 good songs on it that I enjoyed, left a bad taste in my mouth, and i was very wary of getting this one. I got it last weekend, and it's nice to see that the boys went back to the drawing board, and came out with some amazingly great stuff. With this band, going back to what made you great is not a bad thing, and it has served this band well. This album is worth it, and if you are looking for sound from an earlier time, with pre Freakonica taste, this is it, you wont be disappointed. Venus is still number 1, but this has got some great music.

One Perfect Thing 17 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not going to compare this to GVSB's earlier albums. All I know is that this sounds so good to me right now. Definitely pick it up. I can't think of a band that has more style or hits harder than GVSB.
