5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME! November 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album has it all! Great song writing, melody, agression, and real chorus parts you can remember and sing back. Influeces are evident. I here Deftones, and Sevendust in the soulful vocals. New metal is in the mix also via Limp Bizcut, and Korn. Yet Boiler Room has an originality in putting their own spin on this style. Chris Lino has the strongest voice I have heard in years. Boiler Room caught my ear instantly when I heard their single (Do it Again) on MTVs first Return Of The Rock CD. I saw them live in N.Y.C. at a K-Rock low dough show when they opened for Orgy, and they blew me away. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars These guys deserve whatever great reviews they get! November 14, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you are looking for a Hot new band to get into with catchy hooks, sharp, crunchy riffs, slick drum beats, and a vocalist with a cool, raspy sound who sings lyrics that anybody can relate to, then these guys are the perfect choice. I can't find a song on this album that I can't get into. Songs like Insomnia, Patience, Hopeless, and the title song, Can't Breathe are some perfect examples of what I'm talkin about. Let the reviews of praise roll, because Boiler Room is fit to deserve all of 'em, Word is born!

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid album from a great band November 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Man, I'm glad I grew up on the east coast. Being out in LA, I would have never heard of Boiler Room. When I first heard them, it was on a college station. They were a local band called who used to be called Bible Black (I've always known them as Boiler Room). I actually have the album they released independently before this one (which by the way has that song "Low Society" that another reviewer had mentioned, and no I would never even think of selling it) and back then they had a darker, heavier sound.
The big problem I had with this album was my first impression. When I first started listening, it sounded like they had abandoned their doomy, down-tuned sound for a newer, more "accessible" sound. It sounded like any other band that's played on the new rock stations. Then, I got through some more of the album and realized that they're trying to pioneer the genre, instead of blending in with it. "Insomnia" is hands down my favorite track, with such a powerful yet simple riff, along with a strong vocal melody and a superb overall feel to the song. "Superficial" is also a strong track and "Patience" is another standout but honestly I can't say anything bad about any of the songs on this cd. It's just sad that the record companies gave up on them so easily and they had to call it quits.

5.0 out of 5 stars INSANE February 5, 2001
By Ann
Format:Audio CD
This CD has made me crazy, not literally. This band has very simple lyrics, but they mean so much if you actually take the time to listen to them. I have seen this band 4 times live in concert and they are awesome, so please give them the support that they deserve.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Debut September 4, 2003
Format:Audio CD
As far as the music goes, there isn't anything to complain about. Like some other reviewers noted, their sound isn't exactly the most original, but the talent the band exudes raises the bar for the genre they are in. And original or not, you just can't help but enjoy it. There is definitely some love and enthusiasm put into the songs, and it shows in the way these guys play.
Some highlights are the radio hit "Do It Again" and, my personal favorite on the album, the title track "Can't Breathe".
I really wish I could give this album 3.5 stars instead only because there isn't a lot of lyrical depth. We've all read bad poetry, and there are some lines that make you cringe when you hear them - a few of the rapped lines on "Can I Live?" for instance. And again, it is a great CD, but nothing terribly groundbreaking. It's too bad they broke up, since I think further CDs would have revealed some amazing stuff as they matured musically.
All in all, a very solid debut. If you're in the mood for some new music you can rock out to and you can't figure out what to get, I'd definitely recommend giving these guys a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boiler Room - Can't Breathe December 12, 2000
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
This album rocks! Any fan of hard rock should check this out! They have a single hitting stations all over the nation called "Do It Again" which is track one.
There isn't a dull track on this album...my favorites are Do It Again, Patience, Can I Live, and Hopeless.
These guys are from New York City, look for them on the road!
Check out Can't Breathe!
