4.0 out of 5 stars Yep, it's a grower. 11 Dec. 2002
By Daniel Midgley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love Love and Rockets, but I sometimes don't 'get' what their albums are about until long after I've bought them.
I got 'Express' and thought, "It's not like Tones on Tail." But then after a while I loved it.
I got 'Earth Sun Moon' and thought, "It's kind of hippy." But then I couldn't stop playing it.
Well, I got "Sweet F. A.", and thought, "It's really gritty and druggy." I put it away for several years. Only recently have I pulled it out again and given it several close listenings, and some things have come out of it.
The songs are, by turns, beautiful, hypnotic, and groovy.
It's made with care and skill, both in production and musicianship.
There's a sense of humour, world-weariness, and good old-fashioned rock and roll decadence.
In short, this is a very different Love and Rockets album. It grows on you. It might be better than Earth Sun Moon. Maybe even better than Express. It's been in my stereo for days, and I don't know when it's coming out. That's good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Lover Hangover 27 Jun. 2003
By Troy Nachtigall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very dark album.
The chared guitar on the cover from when the studio burned down half way through the recording only begins to describe the emoition in this album. The Album is a piece of art leaving no "single" aside. It's facinating after listening to the album how one can tell the exact moment the studio burned down as the mood goes from blues to agro. This is a great album for a dark day. Reminisent of Bauhaus.

5.0 out of 5 stars raw and rocking 13 Mar. 2002
By Brian Wallace (Co-author of It's Not Your Hair) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This one's pleasantly off the beaten path and adventurously experimenting with different compositions that alternately soothe and rivet the ear drums.
I love how this band evolved from chart stoppers to seasoned artists constantly pushing the envelope and sounding better and better with each passing year. The songs are infectious and full of surprises that make for interesting listening over and over again.
A nice prelude to the magic of Lift.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleeper of a gem 3 April 2004
By MantoM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a long time Love and Rockets fan and am amazed at how many fans pass this album over for whatever reason. For those looking for Daniel's guitars, David's starkness, and the moody edge that goes with it - it's here. This is probably the closest Love and Rockets come to having a flashback to their Bauhaus days without asking NASA for help.
The sound is clear and simple, and while the first few songs start on the cheerier side, the mood starts to dip and become more angst, reflection, and sarcasm as the album progresses. You can even sense the frustration in getting this album to the store shelves over 3 years, a fire, two record labels, re-recording, lawsuits, and whatever else happened along the way. "Here comes the comedown" sounds like David J has had enough and is starting to lose his mind - good song when you need an energy boost.
Overall, this album is very polished in it's arrangement and song writing while the instrumentation remains straight forward. Songs flow into each other very well without becoming monotonous and there really isn't a dead spot anywhere on this album. This is a good change of pace album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and Rockets last great album 11 Aug. 2002
By linv - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great record, a real evolution from their earlier albums. The mix is superb, as with all Rubin-oriented stuff. The music is stripped to the essentials and put together cleanly, so each part speaks loudly for itself. The final result is new L&R, pressed right into your face, playing with a raw pathos unreached in their previous material. They haven't been this rough around the edges since the Bauhaus.
