Editorial Reviews

Beneath The Shadows is one of the true punk rock classics. On this record, T.S.O.L. added keyboards to the lineup. Own a piece of punk history. 10 tracks. 2001 release.

For me, this album pushed the boundaries of punk, crossed lines, and successfully mixed together several genres.
Nigel Planter
To sum it all up, I'd recommend this to any self-respecting rock/punk fan who appreciates some thought and emotion in their music.
David Austin
The guitar playing and the keyboards on this album are very haunting and give it a darker edge than the rest of their work.

I remember when this album came out. Hard fast loud aggro-core was in it's glory days in the underground all across America and TSOL were one of the main focal point bands of that scene, along with Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Minor Threat, Bad Brains etc. So imagine what most of the hardcore kids' reaction was to this album when it hit their ears for the first time. TSOL caught a LOT of... ahem... "do-doo" for it! I saw them on the tour they did for this album and most of the kids at the show were unreceptive to put it mildly! I remember one guy I hung out with back then who upon hearing the first 2 songs after buying this, yanked the record off his turntable and smashed it to little black shards over his speakers.

My personal take on it? Well, this album came out right about the same time I saw my first Damned show. That was a very pivotal time for me musically. Up until then I had been a typical early 80's short-haired hardcore hound... if it didn't move at the speed of light with amps cranked to 11 I didn't want to have anything to do with it. Seeing the Damned changed all that for me. They just blew me away when I saw them, and they were playing longer, more pop-oriented songs with a keyboard player in tow (from their then-new album "Strawberries"), but with incredible punk energy and attitude, and it cracked my mind wide open to new ideas and new tastes. Then I bought "Beneath The Shadows" a few days later and the timing couldn't have been better. The moody psychedelic overtones grabbed me just the right way, and the more I listened, the more I got into it. Most of my friends didn't though, and I got a lot of s*%t for openly liking it. Whatever. Later on many of those same people came to appreciate this album.

This is TSOL's most ignored album. The band got a lot of flak when this album was originally released because it is so different from their earlier work. Instead of sounding hardcore this album verges into deathrock territory.Songs such as Beneath The Shadows and Wash Away are very similar to work done by an early Rozz William's Christian Death. The guitar playing and the keyboards on this album are very haunting and give it a darker edge than the rest of their work. Dance With Me is more horroresque,while this album deals with deep emotions. I totally recommend this album.

My god, does Dexter Holland deserve some brown-nosing or what? Without mentioning the fact that he plays in The Offspring (a group I don't care much for), he deserves kudos for having the guts to re-release this wonderful record upon an unsuspecting audience once more.
What can you call this? Punk? It's far too intricate and developed to merely fit in that genre. Pop music? This music has the hard edge that cancels that out. Rock n' Roll? Close, more like GREAT Rock n' Roll.
On Beneath The Shadows, TSOL offer up an appetizing combination of anger, sadness, pain, and hope that is scattered across the whole record. Never before has Jack Grisham shown that his delivery could be THIS good...I love the band, but his voice is just on a different level from previous releases. Todd (RIP) Barnes' drumming is precise and hard without descending into overkill. TSOL has always had one of the most powerful rhythm sections in punk, and the timeless Barnes/Roche team doesn't falter at any point. However, the record is made truly beautiful by Jack's voice and the incredible poetic force of Ron Emory's guitars and Greg Kuehn's keyboards.
On an album where every track is great, it's hard to pick out standout tracks. I'd have to go with "She'll Be Saying," "Glass Streets," "Wash Away" (one of the most beautiful rock songs ever recorded...I swear, Ron's guitar sounds very nearly human on the solo), "Send My Thoughts," or the wonderful title track.
To sum it all up, I'd recommend this to any self-respecting rock/punk fan who appreciates some thought and emotion in their music.

This one threw a lot of people for a loop: melodic, keyboard-heavy tunes, with more than a hint of psychedelia and prog-rock, from the hardcore punk band TSOL. This album is not unlike the work of the Damned and Echo and the Bunnymen at the time, and is similarly brilliant.

"Glass Streets" is one of the best rock instrumentals ever, period. Just a beautiful, yet powerful, classical composition with rock instruments. Tunes like "Wash Away," "Walk Alone," and the title track bleed through the speakers with raw emotion, punk drive, and toe-tapping catchiness to boot.

Any fan of melodic punk rock should run, not walk, to get this one.

This album was so different than their previous albums, but it doesn't matter...it sounds old and new at the same time. This was TSOL's greatest time in my opinion. While they did not have the same angst as their music in their previous albums, this was like a new wave/rock/punk thing. Jack's voice was incredible and its so sad that he doesn't sing like that anymore on his new stuff. This album is a great buy...the music is inegeniously put together and the vocals are top notch. But if you are looking for old TSOL style stuff...go back a little further because this isn't it.
