4.0 out of 5 stars First Band Signed on Superdrags Label, 2 Jan 2001
Slack from Tennessee USA is the first band to be signed on the newly established label Superdrag Sound Labratories formed by the guessed it Superdrag!! Slacks album called (sorry to drop this on you)is a great foot forward for the band and the label. Slacks album is a bit heavier than the before mentioned band,but is quickly balanced out by the vocal style of Chris Slack who also serves as the bands guitarist. With Ben on bass and Nick on drums this three peice is not missing a beat.Any Superdrag fan will love this album.Even with this 8 track album it doesnt come off sounding like an ep,the sound is too rich and hooks come heavy.ENJOY

5.0 out of 5 stars Superdrag-in the valley of dying stars-Oct.2000, 15 Oct 2000
The gentlemen of Superdrag have had comparisons from being another Beatle resolved group to being one the best bands to have ever recorded an album. They shared brief superstar success from indie to corporate-flavor of the week back to indie status.Most bands never recover from such a transition,however this particular band like their music is more focused and direct,still tragic and beautiful with all the desperation to find the light out of the darkness. I was mistaken to think that their previous album(head trip...)would be their best work..I was wrong.. .. Their new album titled (In The Valley of Dying Stars)finds the band in top form. Where (head trip)left off,this album almost over shadows it with its brillance.The same formula of ballady indie rock is still there,but now has grown into something more than ever expected from any of their previous albums.The album definitly has a game plan ,the opening track (keep it close to me) is a welcoming faster track,which directly leads into the 2nd track (gimme animosity) where the familiar harmonies start to resinate once again.The album winds down becoming more delicate with tracks(ambulance driver) and the ballad(unprepared)The album ends with the title track,and your left with an album that was thought out and deliberate.After several listens I am still able to find purpose and reason.In conclusion, this is Superdrag at their best,I only hope that they continue to prove me wrong....again.
