5.0 out of 5 stars Legend, 19 Oct 2004
This review is from: The Complete Collection (Audio CD)
This guy has influenced EVERYBODY. Either directly or indirectly - all those great acts and guitarists - Cream, Zeppelin, etc
Even up to the modern day with acts such as the 22-20s.
You can see why on this summary-album.
Despite this guy having been discovered very late & being dead a couple of years later, he recorded a lot of material - all of which is outstanding.
- Buy this album... maybe you'll be influenced?

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to it., 19 Oct 2004
This review is from: The Big Come Up (Audio CD)
Solid, rocking blues. Outstanding. One of the most honest, genuine and heart-felt musical genres gets a kick up the behind by these two guys. They're kinda like the white stripes but their songs seem to be more underground (probably due to the amount that they stick to tradition). They never intended to make it big really, just to play a few gigs during the winter season, then work on a farm together during the hotter months - due to the outstanding talent and taste on display, however, fate gave them a hand.
I absolutely cannot wait to see this band at Shepherds Bush Empire in a few weeks... Gonna be one of the best gigs I've been to I'm sure.
By the way, check out the other two albums "Thickfreakness" (The title track of which is outstanding) & "Rubber Factory" - All three albums are outstanding and deserve to be bought by yourself!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where did you come from?, 19 Oct 2004
Sweeden aparently. Like many other people, I first heard these guys on a computer game (FIFA 2004) - the song "Jerk it Out" was an instant hit with me, a kindof 60's organ based rock sound - "EXCELLENT!" I thought, so I read a couple of mixed reviews and decided to chance it.
39 Minutes of Bliss is basically true, it really is a good album of instant classics "showers" and songs that you eventually love after a few plays "growers". The album is practically split into these - the first half being the showers.
I simply cannot believe that an ace act hasn't had much promotion in the UK, im sure most Brits with a taste for quality rock would love this album and love to see them live! They're playing the UK around november/december 2004 I believe yet I've only heard one of their songs on the radio!
I'm sure that despite this being a great album, Caesars Palace (as known in native sweeden), have yet to achieve their best album.... much more to come I am sure...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Embrace, 15 Oct 2004
This is what they are all about...
I credit gravity, it is an excellent song and embrace have made it their own (its my fave single of theirs since this one), despite that, it sounds too coldplay-written rings the scientist very loudly (perhaps it would've been better if chris had've been credited as writing this under a different name?)
Despite the song surfacing during the britpop era, it happens to be one of the best indie songs of the last decade.
Come back to what you know is the best embrace song you will ever hear - support the band and buy the single.
