Man, oh man. This is one swell chunk of music. I have been searching [...] for all my old 80s favorites, and when I found this, I just about fell out of my seat with excitement. I would have been a hardcore fan if I hadn't had to sell my albums during one of those bleak "I need money BAD" episodes years ago...to my great misfortune, they kind of fell by the wayside for me. I am going to buy this album right away; I can't live without it for another minute!! Well, to sum up, these guys have a great way of tweaking rythyms, playing with words and managing to sound like a jam session but with real polish and humor. They're sassy, they're funny, they're smart, and they just write great music. Thought-provoking and listenable as all heck, they are like Camper Van but with a little more intellect and well, I guess I like their lyrics better. I liked this album better than Flyin' the Flannel; it has a more life and diversity. Firehose are one of the best bands that ever got overlooked by the mainstream. Ever. But doesn't that make all of us fans happy in a [strange] way?

This is a great, great record. fIREHOSE took me some time to get used to, as I suppose is probably the case with a lot of people. I think it's the very strange hooks and unconventional song structures. But a little patience goes a long way here. These guys don't get nearly the credit they deserve. My heart broke when they broke up. I also recommend "Mr. Machinery Operator" (out of print, I think) and the live "Totem Pole" EP (also out of print, I think).

If'n, a great cd. fIREHOSE is so, well, fIREHOSE. there is no other way to put it. if you like funky jammy tunes that are creative and unconventional, you should pick up some fIREHOSE, it will change the very fabric of your reality.

This album sounds just as fresh to me today as it did the first time I laid needle to vinyl back in 1986 and heard it for the first time. I grew up in the 1980's, so unlike the youth of today who are having the 80's repackaged to them as something "cool," I'm actually old enough to know better. The vast majority of everything from the 1980's was so incredibly lame and the only reason anyone my age would tell you different is because they're nostalgic. (And, yes, I'm consciously mirroring Watt's song "Against the 70s")

Maybe I'm not an exception. But I listen to this album (or fROM OHIO or Ragin' Full On) and I just think "Here are three guys that really understood song structure, who wrote compelling lyrics, who knew how to play with the guitar being all high and jangly and keeping the bass/drums grumbling along. They wrote music that seems timeless." mike wa

Their influence on the next generation of early 1990's rock is unmistakable and I'm sure that as time goes on, their cult status will continue to grow.
