4.0 out of 5 stars Better-than-average rock with real lyrics August 15, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I ask myself: where the hell did these guys come from? Where did I even find the song "Walk Away"? As I don't know the answers to these questions, I'll just go directly to the band. When I try and describe their sound, I can't really do the mixture thing (as I did with Finch), because the sound, although somewhat derivative, has very original touches. Hoobastank comes to mind, but not really, you know? They're not punk-rock, they're not nü-metal, they're just new rock. And they're very damn good, too.

Let's see... their radio-friendly single "Walk Away" is a great song, I recommend you download it. It begins with a powerful intro that puts the bands sound in a nice cardboard box. Two guitars working very well off each other, toned down as singer J. Lynn Johnston's soft and honest vocals take the center stage. The two guitars never stop working off each other as the song progresses. There are no explicit guitar solos, both take the stage to produce the rhythm, but they are equally powerful and neither upstages the other.

The only complaint I might have is that you may confuse or mix songs together in your head the first couple of times you hear the album. Songs like "Historypeats", "Kerosene" and "Burn", all exceptional songs, may sound alike upon the first listen. This, naturally, dissolves after several listens. I still can't place their sound with comparisons. Their guitars can resemble Lostprophets' often spacey trips, and at times it does sound like they're embarking on a nü-metal escapade. The closing riffs on "Time and Time Again" may remind you of our Welsh rockers or of TRUSTcompany. "Undefined Reversion", the mellow song that finishes Resonance, shows the bands capability to tone it down and provide a very moody and multifaceted song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Are They Now? December 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Walk Away" made its first appearance on the soundtrack and in the advertising for the dragon-slaying film "Reign of Fire" back in '02. At that time, I started listening to the album and was simply blown away. Time passed, I moved on, but just recently pulled the CD out and gave it a listen. Man, I remember exactly why I liked these guys to begin with. The vocals are simply beautiful, such a clean voice, but it's never weak and cheesy, it's always strong and heavy yet soft and simple. The guitar works simply rocks, the drums are sick, the bass is fat. Everything about this album makes me wonder why they never really hit it big, yet Incubus is allowed to release a stinky doodie like A Crow Left Of The Murder and Hoobastank has gotten so popular with a fart like The Reason. This album, almost two years before both Incubus and Hoobastank's current releases, shines high above. Listen to Burn, and if that doesn't get your blood flowing, check your pulse. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the album as much as I did. Here's to the future and hopefully a new Mad At Gravity release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh So Good March 27, 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first time I ever heard of Mad at Gravity was on a radio show late at night. As soon as I heard the song Walk Away I was hooked. I went out and bought the album from a cd store around midnight after I heard the song, I was just that impressed. It seems I've been waiting for a band with Mad at Gravity's raw power for an eternity. Everything is perfect from the deep, powerful lyrics which are excellently delivered to the dynamic guitar parts. I remember hearing the song Say It and thinking, wow, just wow.
The bottom line is, I havent heard an album this good since Relationship of Command by At The Drive In. But to my hearts dismay, I found out Mad at Gravity broke up just as I got into them. Its just a shame that such a new and talented band had to seperate. But dont let that stop you from owning this album, or youll be kicking yourself later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong debut by young California rock band... July 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Based out of Orange County, California, the five-piece Mad At Gravity came into being in 2001 and features the lineup of vocalist J. Lynn Johnston, guitarist Anthony "Bosco" Boscarini, guitarist James Lee Barlow (previously worked with bassist Tye Zamora of Alien Ant Farm), bassist Ben Froelich, and former Pressure 4-5 (Dreamworks Records) drummer Jake Fowler. Following their inception, the group made an immediate impact on the music scene, quickly signing a deal with management company Freeze Management (Glassjaw, Amen, Vex Red, etc) followed by a 4-song demo that was mixed by Steve Evetts (Glassjaw, Lenny Kravitz, Sepultura), which soon led to a record deal with Artist Direct, a new, upstart record label that is headed by former ruler/founder of Interscope Records Ted Field. From there, Mad At Gravity teamed up again with producer Steve Evetts to record their debut album Resonance, which is set to drop on July 16, 2002.
Drawing from a wide variety of influences & passions and led by a dynamic combination of intelligent songwriting, innovative concepts and skilled musicianship, Mad At Gravity has crafted a compelling brand of atmospheric, modern rock that effortlessly bridges the gap between artistic creativeness, melodic sensibility, and commercial appeal. Style wise, Mad At Gravity can best be described as combining the dark, magnetism-like aura of A Perfect Circle with Incubus melodicism and creative ambition, accentuated by traces of The Color Red's emo-rock tendencies and Pulse Ultra's prog influences, though in truth, comparisons cannot accurately portray the ingenuity, beauty, and emotion behind the band's sound.

This has some nice song ideas but poor execution (way too much metal producer) and a horrible mix. 'Tis a pit.

I like Mad At Gravity but was only looking for one song. However, you have to buy the whole album to get it. I like most of the songs, very melodic and great background music.
