Biography

Moving into their 15th year together in 2011, multi-platinum band Saliva stays in touch with their heavyweight Memphis roots on their brand new 6th album, UNDER YOUR SKIN, arriving in stores on March 22nd. “Nothing,” the enigmatically titled first single pick, is available for sale at all digital retailers now.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Long derided by critics as unoriginal and uninspired, Saliva has gained popularity among legions of rock & roll fans eager to celebrate good times with a bottle of domestic beer at their sides and their fists thumping high, high in the air. Blood Stained Love Story seems unlikely to change critical minds--much of the album, including "Ladies and Gentlemen," "Never Gonna Change" and the unimaginatively titled "Twister" comes off like warmed-over '80s hair metal. While it's true that the record features blazing guitar leads and drumming that'll hasten the beats of the average rock-starved heart, it seems unlikely that it––or the band that created it––will make an entry into the pantheon of timeless rock & roll. Thoroughly disposable. ––Jedd Beaudoin

Product Description

Saliva returns to work with Bob Marlette, who produced their first two Island albums. This is their first album with new guitarist Jon Montoya after the departure of Chris D'abaldo. The first single, titled "Ladies & Gentlemen" has been released to radio stations and is already the #1 Most Added track on Mainstream Rock radio.

Saliva's got some great songs under it's belt, with Every Six Seconds being their strongest and best written album.

Blood Stained Love Story features 7 out of 10 tracks that are "soft" rock ballads for the most part compared to their previous releases, abandoning the intensity of their metal/hard rock style of the past, where soft songs were still in the minority.

To hear the heavier side of Saliva, play tracks 1, 4 and 8, cause that's the heaviest it gets here. Track 1, Ladies and Gentlemen, is good, along with the "Nickleback-ish" track 8, Black Sheep, which is the heaviest song, but J. Scott's voice is seriously quiet in the mix, making it hard to hear what he's saying for that song alone. The best track in my opinion, is Track 4, King of the Stereo. The lyrics are way over the top, "The whole world is waiting for the...", but the driving guitar riffs and well timed verses are pretty cool.

Now onto the rest of the album, the only two songs that appealed to me in terms of slow rock would be Tracks 2 and 3, Broken Sunday being very radio friendly. So what about the other five slow rock songs? Not very good if you're a Saliva fan for the heavier stuff. The songs are very predictable, with average chorus/verse/chorus in the soft rock style. They get a little energy here and there, but basically, not my style at all.

So 5 out of 10 good songs is decent, and was the reason I gave the album a 3/5 instead of the 1/5 reaction I initially had, till I played it again and the shock/disappointment was wearing off.

I was then inspired to play the other Saliva albums to find the "softer" songs I never listened to, and they're MUCH better than the remaining five 'soft' songs here.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is this really Saliva???? January 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As a proud owner of all Saliva's past work, I was very excited to purchase the newest release yesterday. As the album began, I was pleased with the opening track and eagerly anticipated more, gritty Southern rock. However, much to my dismay, instead I received dose after painful dose of soft, poppy, hook ladden top 40/American Idol-esque songs. With the exception of one track near the end, the rest of the CD belongs in the "easy listening" section, not rock/metal. Although I must admit, some of the chorus lines are a bit catchy, I was hoping for another CD to blast at the gym, not fall asleep to. This disc now belongs to my girlfriend, stocked away next to her Chris Daughtry, Kelly Clarkson and Kelly Pickler CD's... Very disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saliva - Blood Stained Love Story January 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Somewhere between Nickelback and Linkin Park, you'll find the band Saliva and their fifth studio effort Blood Stained Love Story. Save for the somewhat overdone Ladies and Gentlemen, BSLS is cut for cut a solid record. Old-school fans of Saliva may be put off by the lack of heaviness, but those who looked away after 2003's Survival Of The Sickest are invited back instantly via accessible, matured song writing. At under 40 minutes in length, BSLS has no room for filler, and thankfully, there isn't any (although as mentioned earlier, Ladies and Gentlemen may take some time to grow on you). Fans of Alternative Metal, Nu-Metal and Medium Heavy Rock will more than likely enjoy Blood Stained Love Story.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Album.......But Could Be A lot Better!!!! April 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I will admit I've been a Saliva fan since "Every Six Seconds" first came out, But I've also wondered why they can't seem to make another record as good as that one. As good as 2002's "Back Into Your System" was it never came close, in fact it included the first of their songs that I got very tired of hearing (Always) and the second (Rest In Pieces)...Even though they are both great songs. Fast forward to 2004 and we got "Survival Of The Sickest" an album that was a step forward, but still not great. It had kind of a cool southern rock feel to it at times. Which isn't a bad thing, but it still didn't feel like a genuine Saliva record to me.

So, When I first heard that "Blood Stained Love Story" was coming out in January, I got really excited. I figured maybe this was what I had been waiting for, a return to form. However, when I heard the album I was once again disapointed. It starts out okay....with the first single "Ladies And Gentleman" and "Broken Sunday"....Then it takes a wierd turn downward with "Never Gonna Change" which sounds like it could have easily been done by Clay Aiken or any of the other American Idol contestants. It's a slow song that sounds like a drum machine behind it, instead of Paul Crosby. But, I made myself listen further and It improves slightly with "King Of The Stereo" perhaps the only song that sounds like a saliva song on the whole disc. "One More Chance" and "Going Under" are both pretty descent songs, but when I listened to "Twister" I remember thinking, What the hell happened? It has to be the worst track on here, it's a very experimental song that I have yet to explain. It is however the records closer that is the most impressive, "Here With You" could very well be the nicest, most heart-felt thing this band has written.

This album is poppy, whiney, and overall a catastrophe. I was utterly surprised to see that only about 2 or 3 tracks rock and the rest is mainstream sounding garble. Read more
