Review

New melodic modern rock is an accurate label to pin on the initial release from Cush, except for the "new" part of the equation. All Cush members are seasoned veterans of the Christian rock scene, coming from a variety of musical backgrounds. Led by Michael Knott (LSU, Aunt Bettys) and featuring members of The Prayer Chain, Starflyer 59 and Fold Zandura (among others), Cush is more of a musical concept than an actual band. Oddly-tuned guitars, slice of life themes and distinguishable, passionate vocals quickly clue the savvy listener as to whose influence most directly drives Cush's self-titled debut. Yes, Michael Knott, take two steps forward. "Heaven Sent," which represents love and love lost, leads off the album with lush guitars and is followed by another, slightly cheerier relationship song, "Crush Me." Knott continues his streak of strangely beautiful songs that have "bomb" in the title with "The Bomb Was Brighter Than the Stars" (this joins "The Bomb" and "Rocket and a Bomb" from his repertoire), while "The Touch" connects the listener to the gift that is God's love. Nine of the 12 cuts are over five minutes in length, which can make the album seem to drag a bit, but this is easily forgivable because of the fine musicianship included within. Knott's work here isn't as underground as many of his previous efforts, but in a society where alternative music has become the mainstream, Cush provides a true quality alternative. -- Chris McNeece (c) 2000 CCM Communications, Inc. -- From CCM Magazine -- Subscribe Now!

Not knowing anything about this group, I was not prepared for something so good. Rock music fans should have little trouble taking this record to heart. It's intense, passionate, melodic and filled with hooks. And correct me if I'm wrong, but the lead guitar is unbelievable.

I really think that all those involved in this project would have really had to try and make a bad record. Contributors to this album iclude members of the Prayer Chain, The lassie foundation, Honey and Fold Zandura. Throw in lead vocals from Mike Knott. How can you go wrong? Stand out tracks include the vibey "Heaven Sent" the soon to be pop classic "Crush Me" and "Good Times". The whole disc is great from start to finish. for fans of any of the above mentioned bands, fans of good songs in general.

Ambient. Ethereal. Surreal. Moody. Emotional. Visceral. This CD is incredible. I have been impatiently waiting since I heard a rough cut of "Heaven Sent" six months ago. It was worth the wait - but I'm glad I didn't have to wait any longer. The music on this CD is to be experienced for long unbroken periods of time where complete absorption is possible. The songs take their time getting where they're going and the raw power in Andy Prickett's guitar is almost unbearable at times. I'm not talking about searing faster-than-light rockstar solos; I'm talking about pure emotion that packs a wallop. There's no way you will be able to fully appreciate the beauty of the music the first time through. I imagine it will be in my CD player for a LONG time before being replaced. Please, if you consider yourself to be fan of music, give this CD a try. You won't be sorry.

this record is incredible. perhaps the best pop record to come out so far in 2000. fans of The Lassie Foundation, U2, anything by Mike Knott, Honey, Prayer Chain, or just really great, mellow rock and roll will LOVE this album.

This is a great album, Michael Knott is one of the premier musicians of our time, and when this album came out, I had a friend let me listen to it but it was never in any of the stores. Great Album, Heaven Sent is an amazing song. Nevertheless, this album is mislabeled. The band is "Cush" not the "The Cush" (which is a totally different band). And the album name is "The New Sound" and not "Cush".

The live show blew me away. Finally a quality pop rock show! They probably should be labeled alternative, but I think it's just great rock & roll. So I saw the show... THEN the CD went in the player... WOW! Every song is great. The sound was impressively similar to the live show, the energy was there, and now all my friends know all the words :)! CUSH!

This is the single album in my vast collection that I never get tired of listening to. Everything about this recording is perfect, from the lyrical depth to the overwhelmingly beautiful sonics. It's a crime that these guys aren't superstars.

I am always searching for good music to listen to. One day, I was listening to some old tunes from my teenage days: Poor Old Lu, Violet Burning, Prayer Chain, etc. I decided to see what was up with those bands currently. Long story short, I discovered Cush. It was 2009, and I couldn't believe that this album came out 9 years ago and slipped passed my radar. Anyway, got the CD, listened to it, and it was totally not what I expected. They sounded nothing like the 90's alternative bands that I enjoyed in my youth. After a few listens however, I loved the album. Its hard to describe the album other than it's just great Rock 'n Roll. It has a little 70's rock feel ("Good Times"), a little modern alternative feel ("Aching Heart"), sometimes atmospheric ("The Clouds are All the Same"), sometimes even jazzy ("Porpoise"), but just overall an enjoyable listen. The standout performances are Michael Knott on vocals and Andrew Prickett on guitar, both legends in the Christian alternative music scene, and they really shine on this album. Like I said, there are only glimpses of the Prayer Chain's sound, or Knott's previous project's sound, but you won't be disappointed. Unfortunately, Michael Knott left the band after just one album, and this is the only full-length they have available. Maybe one day, they will get back together. If your looking for some great music to add to your collection, I would highly recommend this album.
