This was a surprise when I bought it. Yeah, i picked it up because of the damn "Bound for the Floor" hit thing, and cursed myself going home for being suckered into buying a one-hit wonder's album that was surely going to be bad in comparison. Lo and behold, it wasn't, and the CD started going on repeat after repeat. I anxiously picked up their next "Pack Up the Cats," a couple of years later (which is also terrific). Sounded then, as it does now, stangely out of time with its preservation of grunge aesthetics, but still a fairly pummeling and wild ride nevertheless. The guitars are loud and screaming, the drums flailing, and that's about all you even need. Repeating what tons have said before, it's amazing that such a sound can come out of two guys. They seem to have a good humor too, unlike most of their angsty bretheren. The only real problems with it are the lyrics can be kind of amateurish sometimes (case in point "High Fiving MF," which I still don't mind terribly). If you love rock do yourself a favor and get this blinking album!!!

Local H is one of the first bands that I got acquainted with strictly through my own curiosity: I saw "As Good As Dead" at the store, and I bought it. I didn't know any of the songs, and was able to appreciate the album immediately for what it is: a great collection of wonderful music. Each track on this album could be a hit.

What is most amazing is the great versatility of this band. A well-written, tender "Eddie Vedder" is juxtaposed with the hard, screaming vocals of "Back in the Day." What's most amazing is that I enjoy each of these songs equally.

This album is everything I love about Local H in one album. While I may not play it as much as "Hamfisted" or "Pack up the Cats," this album still contains their catchiest, most well-written songs, and is a great introduction to this band if you are yet to experience their tremendous talent.

Local H were one of the better post-nirvana bands that emerged in a sea of bush's, candleboxes and silverchairs. They still have the typical self deprecating lyrics but thier is a sense of quirkiness and humor behind them which makes Local H all the much better and more sincere. "Bound for the floor" was a good hit, but the blistering fury of songs like "I saw what you did and i know who you are", "nothing special" and "fritz's corner" made Local H come into thier own as 90s hard rock masters rather than just being pale 5th rate nirvana imitators. This band really should have been bigger than they were. As Good as Dead is just good pure hard rock n roll, lots of fun.

Local H's As Good As Dead feels like middle ground between their evolving sound. From the straight ahead grunge attack of their competant but nothing special debut Ham Fisted to their sonically experimental and most rewarding CD(Pack Up The Cats), As Good As Dead stands perfectly in the middle of those two albums. Like its predecesor, As Good As Dead is a loose concept album about a dead end life in a dead end town in the heart of the middle of nowhere (which in this case happens to be Zion, IL. About an hour from where I live).
As per usual, Lucas rips through songs with lacerating, low end guitar sound. While he would later perfect his tecnique and make it signature, here Scott remains raw and unglossed. Infact most of this album contains the heart of Fisted due to less flashy production and far less restrained energy (Back In The Day anyone?). His riffing is not only memorable, but sets the tone perfectly for this often bleak and depressing album.Lucas's partner in crime Joe Daniels still remains a monster behind the kit as usual. While not deeply intricate in style, he makes up for it with a pounding presence. He knows that a great drummer is the heart of rock music and he helps hook some the songs in your mind (That openning drum beat on High Fivin' Mofo is one of the most distingishable in recent years). Want another reason to buy this CD? Its got that "cophectic song" on it. Its called Bound To The Floor and please, stop asking!
The general tone and theme is about failure and hopelessness. Lucas and Daniels pull it off with is much grace as one possibly can in dealing with this subject. While some of the album is delievered in sort of dark and dank feel, there are plenty of smirking moments to keep it from just being another depressing grunge album of the time.

At first, I was skeptical of this album. The sticker on the front advertised not good music, but gratuitous use of "the F-word." Island never knew how to promote Local H, a truly first-rate band with incredible range. I still don't know how two guys are able to pack such a punch without help from outside, but Scott and Brian are pros at the game.
"Bound for the Floor" is a perfect anthem for the 1990s, but other singles like "Fritz's Corner" and the brilliant "Eddie Vedder" are just as good. If you can't see the band live and hear unreleased classics like "Baby Wants to Tame Me," then at least get yourself this album. Otherwise, you'll miss out entirely on some phenomenal music.
