Finally re-released, this is a must have for any Hot Water Music fan and anyone interested in the softer side of indie rock.
The Blacktop Cadence album "Chemistry for Changing Times" takes the energy of Hot Water but replaces their trademark anger and urgency with a subtler and sweeter tone. From the slow opening riffs of "Last night..." to the light jangle of "Sinker", and even the string-laden "Unlucky" the Blacktop Cadence keeps up a pretty, melodic, and (god forbid) accessible groove that's had me sold since it's first release.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome March 16, 2004
Format:Audio CD
this CD is incredibly beautiful. Great arrangements. I have heard nothing like this before. It is slow and very melodic. THe viola in tracks 6 and 10 fit in perfectly and take the lead melody which is absolutely beautiful. Get this CD now. the lyrics are so heartfelt and full of emotion, more than anything iv ever heard. Most of the songs have clean guitar and then crunch later on in the song, although flowing together. The drummer is amazing and unordinary with his stlye. This CD was done before emo went big and into the mainstream and is the best emo CD ever. I never get tired of listening to this. Get this CD you will never hear anything so well arranged that is this underground.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still jaw-dropping after nearly 10 years October 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When Hot water music called it quits briefly, The blacktop cadence was formed. George and Chris from Hot water music, Jack from Army of Ponch and Heather from Baroque create something quite different from their previous and current bands. This hits me like not many other records do. From sad, 6+ minute epics like "slowstep" to rockers like "sad passing shame", this release will move you. If you're a vinyl nerd, Order this straight from No idea and get it on beautiful green or rootbeer vinyl. If you find the original version released on keystone-ember long ago, pick that up too.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is absolutely incredible. June 16, 2008
By Ian
Format:Audio CD
I think if you managed to even find this CD on here and haven't already purchased it, you don't need to waste your time reading reviews. This is one of those albums that you leave in your car for 4 weeks at a time. I've been doing that for years and years with this one and I still love it.

The only regret you will have after listening to this album for the first time is that they didn't put out several other albums as perfect as this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too much snare! October 2, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know why but when I listen to this now I'm just not into it anymore. At first I liked it a whole lot just being fresh of my "Hot Water Music will fix everything" campaign. The song writing is really good, the vocals are hit and miss, the drumming is good but dear god, the snare drum in the mix drives me up the wall!
