5.0 out of 5 stars A Lost Treasure March 23, 2004
By ggbeans
Format:Audio CD
"Raining on the Sky" was one of my favorite hits in 1998. I picked up this cd in a bargain bin not long ago because it'd been ages since I'd last heard that song. What a treat it was to discover, six years too late, what an awesome band Naked was. I agree with other posts that their sound resembles Live's spiritual side with shades of the Wallflowers and Matchbox 20. The songs here are superb, from "Raining," "Mann's Chinese" and the beautiful "Love Supreme." If you can find this cd, buy it and enjoy. I have a soft spot for lost bands, and Naked now ranks in the top 3 of my list. It's a shame they never made it big; this cd is a testament to Naked's great potential. Best of luck to these guys in their solo careers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Band? August 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The first time i had ever heard of this band was from a song on the hit television show buffy the vampire slayer. The episode was in the second season entitled "Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered" and the song was lyp sync'd by the show's band "Dingoes ate my baby" For the longest time i couldnt find this song Drift Away because for awhile i thought the song was done by the band that supplied most of the Dingoes music; Four Star Mary, another lost legend, another great and unnoticed band. I finally accessed some of my contacts and came up with "naked" as the artist for that song and went on a rampent search for it. Coming across the songs manns chinease and raining on the sky in the process of searching, this band quickly captivated me and has ranked #2 on my list of favorite lost bands; definately in the top 10 of my favorite all time bands. I have heard some of their other music since then and judging by other reviews written here, their band has had quite the underground following since its founding in the late 90's cerca 1998.This band is phenomenal and it is such a crime that their music never hit main stream. they are one of the best bands out there with original and emotional music stylings that rival in quality or surpass bands such as matchbox 20 whom have recently adopted a polished, commercialized, and "clean" sound. rock and roll should be hars, emotionally evocotive and powerfull. "Naked" is all this and more. whatever has happened to the band (there are rumors of the lead singer having gone solo), they truely should reunite and restore rock and roll to its place in modern music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Great Awakening August 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I happened to come across this cd at a Hastings store for $.99 and had heard of the song "Mann's Chinese." I picked it up, not realizing that it was destined to become one of my favorite albums. As far as I know, the cd is out of print, as I believe the record company was either bought out, or went under. As to what happened to Naked, that's only what the band members themselves know of. I would persuade anybody to buy this cd, as it is worth it. It is true, this cd did not get the attention it deserved.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can HEAR feelings! January 23, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Naked after hearing "Raining On the Sky" on the radio. I immediately fell in love with the band, but wasn't sure as to whether or not I should buy their album (Would all the other stuff turn out really terrible?). But finally I took the plunge and did not regret it. Unlike many of the big new bands out there (e.g. Matchbox & 3rd Eye), Naked does not have cheesy & trite lyrics. It all comes straight from the heart. Jonathan Sheldon is a virtuoso--his every emotion is revealed in voice.

4.0 out of 5 stars up, slow October 24, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i bought this cd because i liked their song "raining on the sky" it's an awesome song! there are several others that are also great. like mann's chinese. it has one of those choruses that when you hear it, it's natural to bellow out and sing along. "road home" (slow)next to "raining on the sky" (meduim beat)are two of the best songs on the cd. the lead singer (what is his name anyway?) has a grainy voice. similiar to bryan adams, only this guy has a slight accent. i love his voice!

4.0 out of 5 stars good music August 30, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This group is talented and it's a shame that they didn't get farther than they did. I saw them perform live many years ago, opening for Poe, and they're incredible. I just found an old cassette tape with a recording of Mann's Chinese and listened to them for the first time in years.

WIth a solid, smokey room mid-tempo rock sound the rock band Naked is probably best remembered by their minor hit "Mann's Chinese", a bit of fun modern rock using the iconic Hollywood hallmark as metaphorical meeting place for people who strive to feel like they belong but are really out of place and maybe out of time. This is a fun and stomping rock song and all of the elements are nicely balanced and clear as they are really on all of the songs on this disc (courtesy of mix master Tom Lord-Alge). Lead vocalist Jonathan Sheldon has a very pleasant, emotive, adult rock voice that goes down easy while still possessing a little grain and gravel. The band uses some mild distortion to good effect, not letting it overpower any element of their songs but to add some resonance to them at the right points.

Lyrically thoughtful many of the songs seem to search for and express hidden feelings that the pressurized and skin-deep culture and circumstances put on different people. There is a lot of lament contained within these songs, and also yearning and hope (though they seem to have a romantic view of hope as they don't tend to qualify what a person's hope is in other than to "make it on through"). While the lyrics may not be astonishing or plumb the depths of human existence neither are they trite or willing to skim the surface of things. I appreciate this especially when all of the elements of the song lend and bend toward emotional complexities. Like many other reviewers I too would have liked to see what this band would have accomplished if they had been able to make it through themselves.

Great album that came out in the late 90's but never heard of them after this. It's a post-grunge era band so you can't go wrong.
