Editorial Reviews

In 2008, Number One Gun entered uncharted territory as the band transitioned into a solo project with leader Jeff Schneeweis. Speculation rose if this would be an end or a fresh beginning. After two years, Number One Gun is ready to continue with the forthcoming release To The Secret and The Knowledge, which gives the listener a creative, talent-filled album. As a full-time producer in his hometown of Chico, California, Schneeweis recorded this album in between other projects such as Secret & Whisper and Hawthorne Heights. This spontaneous writing and recording process resulted in an eclectic collection of songs with a running theme of finding hidden treasures in each of us. Excitement, the fear of the unknown, and the bigness of life are feelings one has when starting a new adventure or charting unknown territory.

I had high expectations for this album cause I really enjoyed so much his past effort, but although it has quality songs in it, some NOG's best tracks, there are other important things to point out that ruins the value of the album.
"The Victory" is the perfect start for the album, some experimentation not shown before by NOG, it sets the mood for the rest of the songs and then another great song "Big Machines" is followed, and as it name suggest it sounds very technical and very smooth at the same time. "Forest" is the perfect choice for a single and it maintains but progress what The North Pole Project left off, very inspiring tune.

Then the listener encounters "Noises" and is definitely the most intriguing song of the album, cause is simple but somehow manages to have a level of complexity, "Hey Stranger" gets the attention of the listener but tends to reduce while the song advances until the "Don't erase my life" part which grabs you again until it falls to "The People" an acoustic number, similar to "The Different Ones" from their past album though good, but this time around the moody feel persists with the next track "White Lies" gladly is best than the last track so I there's nothing to complain.

Hey, I almost finished reviewing each song , so far so great, but the bad aspects start here...
An instrumental track "Look to Pass", not bad at all but although it has been said, it goes nowhere and it could have been saved for making another song. And not only that, judging the number of songs and length of the album an instrumental track doesn't help at all, I have already seen this with other albums, for example, the Burden Of A Day's album Oneonethousand (Oceans), luckily this time "Try It" sets the mood again.

I've been a huge fan of Number One Gun ever since they released Promises for the Imperfect. I felt crushed when I heard they broke up, but Jeff Schneeweis's decision to continue (more or less) on his own under the same name and same style made me quite hopeful but cautious about what to expect. As soon as I heard The North Pole Project, I was hooked. I've probably listened to that CD more than any other I've ever owned. When Amazon emailed me about the announcement of this release, I couldn't pre-order fast enough. And that brings me to the review of this album.

I had pretty high expectations having heard and loved the previous two albums. I've listened to this CD a few times now, and I have to say it didn't quite live up to my high expectations. The entire album length is only 33 minutes, and if you take out the instrumental track and Journey cover leaving only original material, you only get about 26 minutes. His previous work was 37 minutes and contained completely original songs. I feel like I must comment on "Don't Stop Believing." It's a great song, but doesn't quite live up to the original. That's not to say it's bad, but I personally find many covers to be better than the original song. This just isn't one of those times. The instrumental track is OK, but if you never listened to it you probably wouldn't feel like you were missing anything.

Now that I've covered the cons, I want to go over the pros. If you like any of NOG's previous albums, you will probably like this one. It combines a lot of elements of each of the previous works and retains that unique feel.

Talk about starting the New Year right, Number One Gun has burst into the new decade with an album that is sure to rock your speakers for months to come. Incorporating the best of 90's emo-rock with the ethereal sounds of the 80's via a stellar cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing", and melding it into what is perhaps, the defining moment for music development. Shake off the ice and snow kids, this album screams, spring is near, turn it up in anticipation.

"To the Secrets and Knowledge" is best seen as a journey, as each song develops melodically into the next providing a culmination of pop emo rock. TSAK is consistently true to Number One Gun's style, and fans of bands such as Mae, Further Seems Forever and The Juliana Theory would be pleased by the extent and diversity of this album. Only ten tracks long it's another blockbuster for Jeff Schneeweis, the only remaining member of Number One Gun from its day's under Floodgate Records.

Certainly an album worth checking out while we wait for the coming of summer, check it out at Number One Gun's MySpace.

I bought this album having never heard Number One Gun before. I pre-ordered it on a whim and was very impressed. It has quickly gone towards the top of my iTunes library for Play Count. Its a great album that I can listen to from start to finish and never be disappointed. And a stellar Journey cover for the grand finale.
