ENHANCED CD -EAN 016861858322-RR 8583-2

Amazon.co.uk

You know you're on firmly metallic ground when an album's opening track is entitled "Keep The Sabbath Dream Alive", yet on Sons Of The Pioneers, hallucinogenic-enhanced rock cowboys the Workhouse Movement infuse their fundamental metal traditionalism with a myriad of cross-generic chops to quite excellent effect. "Gimme Some Skin" swaggers with Red Hot Chili Peppers' funk syncopations, "Zero" paraphrases the "Devil Went Down To Georgia" country clichis of the Charlie Daniels' Band and "Feel Like Bob Marley" doffs its stylistic cap to reggae's immortal prime mover while jazzing itself into an irresistible bebop groove. Elsewhere "Motown" utilises classic Detroit horns and "Charlie Don't Surf" broods with lashings of smouldering vintage violence. Consequently, the Workhouse Movement stand out from the increasingly formulaic American metal crowd because they repeatedly dare to be different, they seamlessly mesh priceless leftfield devices to old school stoner enthusiasm and as a direct result this appropriately entitled debut habitually hits the spot. --Ian Fortnam

Format: Audio CD
Workhorse Movement appeared from nowhere, brought something new to the nu-metal table and promptly imploded because it wasn't quite 'nu' enough. This is a unique album in a see of clones and wannabes. The Workhorse Movement brought heavy and funky sounds back to metal when everyone was whinging about how bad their childhood was. They truly were being literal about 'Keeping the Sabbath Dream Alive'
Its uplifting, great for getting ready for a night out at your local rock establishment. They were awesome live too, which is only slightly captured with this studio effort, twin vocalists Cornbread and Myron bringing their distinctive lyrics to the chugging beats.
Sadly they are no more, true 'piuoneers' in this field lost due to lack of commercialism. They're set to return [or at least some of them] as the Dirty Americans with a more fuzzed up 70's vibe, but in the mean time chill out to this classic album.

Sometimes you buy an album and it sounds awful but over time it grows on you, and you find yourself hooked, sometimes you don't and you never listen to it again (or give it to your little sister). Sometimes you buy an album and it blows your head off and makes you laugh like a gibbering idiot. This is one of THOSE albums.
If your idea of a good party is Monster Magnet playing as the backing band to Public Enemy whilst possessed by the ghost of Jim Morrison... it might be.... then BUY THIS & buy it now.
Actually, just buy it anyway. Horns, chant along choruses, bus sized riffs, a smattering of reggae and jazzy bass lines are used to give each song a life of its own, and, despite this eclecticism the album sounds awesome played front to back, back to front, mixed up, played backwards, whilst suspended from a tree....... music lovers.... BUY THIS ALBUM.

This disc has SWAGGER! Dammit, I can't get some of those chants out of my head. Basically, this CD hits the spot because it is excellent. Grooving, funky, swingin, jazzy, psychedelic and hallucinogenic, this band are great. They also have a HUGE sound, which is nice. Anybody saying that this band ain't good are wrong.

HASH(0x8e9841d4) out of 5 stars Schizophrenic Funk-Hop Rock 20 Mar. 2001
By Would'e - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If I had to hazard a guess at how these fellows might describe their own music I would probably say that they might make use of such phrases as "phat beats" and "dope grooves". Whatever. For me the rock/rap thing began and ended with Rage Against The Machine. Nobody has done it better than Rage, before or since, including The Workhorse Movement. The band's influences are firmly rooted in 70s rock, funk and punk and truth be told many of these songs are laden with good hooks. And many of them do indeed groove. But the vocals, oh my, the vocals. Whether the voices here are raps, gang shouts, or singing (using the term in it's loosest sense) they are uniformly awful. Still this album is cleverer than many of similar ilk. People who are too embarrassed to admit they like Limp Bizkit or Kid Rock may find this less stoopid enough to proudly put a The Workhorse Movement bumper sticker on their Jeep Wranglers. Standout tracks include "Keep the Sabbath Dream Alive" which is propelled by old school hip-hop beats and a funk-rock riff that sounds like something from Jesus Christ Superstar and "Joe Mama," which has a Kyuss-ish guitar line. Nods to Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers abound and the album has plenty of good moments, unfortunately not enough to overcome the poor vocal showing. The CD is enhanced for Windows' PCs and Apple Macintosh computers. The e-content includes brief live clips, interviews and photos

HASH(0x8e984228) out of 5 stars Get it while it's hot 21 Sept. 2000
By Michael Thomas Roe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm going to join the chorus of "this is the next big thing", because it just could be. "Keep the Sabbath Dream Alive" is an instant classic and worth the CD. Read what the critics are raving about and marvel that you actually agree for probably the first time. The songs are plenty in number and surprisingly (and refreshingly) short in length. Everything about them having multiple influences is true. They initially come across as another teen-angst band ala Limp Bizkit or Rage Against the Machine, but there is more. I'm starting to hear Blue Oyster Cult, for crying out loud. And even older late sixties blues-rock bands like Mountain and Vanilla Fudge. And that, my friends, is no small feat. I personally hope that I will be hearing more of The Workhorse Movement, more specifically on the marquis outside the local concert hall.
