By Mr T VINE VOICE on 19 Dec. 2006
Format: Audio CD
No Way Out is a prime example of late sixties psychedelic. Tracks like In the Midnight Hour and Misty Lane are simply `poptastic', a wonderful listen if you're into retro kitch. But you get the feeling that such songs are concessions to the contemporary market. The band themselves would most likely rather be playing blues-influenced, Stones-esque numbers like Let's Talk about Girls and Sweet Young Thing. They do both styles very well and the combination would be enough to satisfy most listeners, but there's more. The title track and the infamous Are You Gonna be There (at the Love In), to name but a couple, nudge the album toward the genre in which it most happily sits: garage psych. And that, for most, is the end of the story: the Chocolate Watch Band were a talented but under-appreciated psych band that started off as Stones emulators and went on to record a first-rate underground album, marred only by a few `sell-out' tracks. I disagree! The pop tunes are excellent in their own right. And there's an aspect to No Way Out that is totally ignored by such received wisdom. There's another weirder, and altogether darker side to the album, present in experimental pieces like Gossamer Wings, Expo 2000 and - best of all - Dark Side of the Mushroom. This for me, and for many now just discovering the Chocolate Watch Band, is the interesting stuff. Apparently it was notoriously difficult to reproduce live and thus was considered by the fans to be `not really the Watch Band' but rather some unholy, studio-born evil twin. I say, nonsense to that. No Way Out is a psychedelic classic. No matter what species of that particular musical genre you prefer, it's well worth a purchase.

if you are a lover of mid to late 60's psychedelic rock, this is a "must have" album for your collection. It was a very pleasant surprise. It has aged very nicely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Late Night Mushroom Pillow 15 May 2012
By Race E. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If there was ever an American answer to the Rolling Stones, I would have to say it was a band from Los Altos, California called the Chocolate Watchband.
With their hard-hitting, bass and beat driven garage rock, you would swear you were listening to the Stones if you didn't know any better. There were even times when the Chocolate Watchband were seemingly calling out the Stones at their own game as far as raw urgent heaviness and angsty rock attitude.
No Way Out is the Chocolate Watchband's debut album released at the tail end of the Summer of Love. In between psychedelic instrumentals and studio experimentation (put there by their engineer and producer as filler) are cuts of white hot garage punk that no doubt influenced the Ramones and L.A. punk bands like the Berlin Brats ten years later.
Even the trippy stuff is pretty good on this album. Creepy at times, Aguilar seems to whisper behind a fog of LSD. It is one hazy, rhythm and blues-based psychedelic punk album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 2012 re-release from Sundazed 2 Mar. 2012
By Stephen B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This review is for the new 2012 Sundazed re-release of "No Way Out" by the Chocolate Watch Band.

The remaster is surprisingly good, even given the fact they were more or less a garage band and even when listening with an audiophil approach. I don't have the older Sundazed version from 1994, but this new one is really pretty good. Playtime is rather short, but I'm glad getting the original album sounding like this, so no bonus tracks required.
The disc itself is of good manufacturing quality (unfortunately that's not a matter of course nowadays) and it comes in a nicely styled foldout digipak.
And, yes, thanks Sundazed for listening to what your customers say, the CD is being held in place by a glued-in plastic tray so the disc won't suffer any scratches from handling. No more stupid inserting the disc in a cardboard only packaging - great! This is what collectors like.

After listening to this one I have ordered the other new Sundazed re-release by the Chocolate Watch Band "Inner Mystique" right away. I presume it will be equally good.

Sundazed, keep the good ones comming!

Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars garage psycher. 20 Aug. 2011
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Are you gonna be there at the love iN? , the bands fm radio hit, is completely the late sixties silliness completely as most people never went to a orgy even in the much Wilder seventies. Still this is first rate psych rock and garage mixture.
Some songs are pure spaceout and they were added and forced on the band by the band's management! but they are good psych rock instrumentals all the way. I don't know if the band played them live they are more like pink floyd than the rest of the disc which is garage rock with a tinge of psych. garage rock was the inspiration of punk but often the musicians of garage rock were better than the later punk scenes and the garage rock scene was the 60's all the way anyways. The vocalist sounds like mick jagger to a degree and that's where the true roots of this band are in blues driven garage music and not psych rock like pink floyd. So if you love garage rock by a group that was great at it then this one is for you.
