3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not great. December 8, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Slobberbone seems to have abandoned their twang on this record. How unfortunate. Their first three albums were among my all time favorites and I loved the combination of distorted guitars and country elements. This record is pretty much a straightforward hard rock record. The songs themselves, in my opinion are not as strong as previous releases. If you're a die-hard slobberbone fan, then by all means pick it up. If you are looking to buy your first slobberbone cd, please get another one instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Band in America? Perhaps... September 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
That may sound like hyperbole, but it's damn close to the truth, as the boys from Denton, Texas, are at least neck-and-neck with Athens' own Drive-By Truckers. And with their fourth album to date, Brent Best and his wooly comrades lay down a solid slab of high-octane, emotion-filled rock and roll that'll part your hair while ripping your heart out at the same time.
From the Neil-Young-meets-English-Beat opener "Springfield" to the melancholy, wistful "Back" that closes the album, SLIPPAGE is chock full of sharp, insightful songwriting and full-bore gonzo playing. Best is the type of songwriter who holds nothing back, even the scary stuff, and it's when he's at his most disconcerting he's at his strongest. Like Warren Zevon, you don't know whether to laugh or back away slowly at "Stupid Words". What first seems like a run-of-the-mill - if still brilliant - late-night phone call to an erstwhile lover descends literally into serial killer madness. You go rapidly from "Hey, he's been reading my mail" to "Oh, dear". Brent's good at stuff like this, and equally disturbing is the blood-filled character sketches on the aptly titled "Butchers".
The world of Slobberbone is a dark one, full of loss and pain, that instead of evoking pity or sympathy, you fill as if you share the pain. It's not a sharing in the touchy-feely kind of way; rather, Brent Best is singing the pain you know all too well. Best of all, the rest of the band separates the 'Bone's internal dialogues from whiny emo nonsense with full-bore rock and roll. Guitarist Jess Barr rips and snarls with six-string brother Best, while drummer Tony Paul Harper keeps a step-and-a-half ahead of long, tall bassist Brian Lane for a truly locomotive rhythm section. In other words, it's sensitive stuff but it's also loud and sweaty.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great CD! December 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
OK...Slippage may not be EYTWRWWT...but it's still a great CD. And yes while it has less country influence than earlier stuff, it's still Slobberbone! And to appreciate them you have to see them live. A blistering band! And to see them live in a 150 person club...well...they burn the house down. As for the "filler" madolin/violin...only when they are in TX. Those guys are form Centro-matic. However, right now (saw them 12-14) Will Johnson Centro-matic lead singer is opening and the Centro-matic keyboard/violin player is playing with Slobberbone. Of the 1/2 dozen shows...this one was it. As for a first CD...I still think it's Barrel Chested.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slobberbone Doesn't Slip With Slippage December 16, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Slippage was my first sojourn into the world of the mythical Denton, Texas band known as Slobberbone. From the first song "Springfield, IL." one knows they are in for a fun and fantastic rock n' roll ride. Brent Best, the front man/songwriter/guitarist extraordinaire really shows he possesses quite possibly the best voice in all of rock n' roll today. His husky voice soaked in gravel and cigarette smoke soars consistently throughout the album. The melodies on this album are truly engaging and work so well with many of the repetitive rhyme schemes used in the lyrics. In lesser hands those very same rhyme schemes might sound silly but not with the boys of Slobberbone at the helm. This album completely rocks and still takes time to actually say something and I find myself liking it even more with every listen. Strong and consistent songwriting is something many times not seen in rock today but Best is one hell of a songwriter. The only flaw I found on this album is that sometimes the best instrument in the Slobberbone arsenal gets drowned out, that being the voice of Brent Best. Slippage has made me a believer and sooner or later I will be purchasing all of their older work and most likely raving about it endlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album rocks. October 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Their last effort, Everything You Thought ...etc., was a little slice of alt country roots rock perfection. So at first listen to Slippage, the absence of banjo and mandolin behind that viscous electric guitar is disconcerting. But once you realize that the goal here was to make a similarly definitive ROCK record, you see that they nailed it. The songwriting is a notch better, if that is even possible. There is only one song on here I skip, and I know many others love that one. This CD hasn't left my player in 2 weeks. "Find The Out" alone is worth the price. Buy it. You will love it.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.2 Slobberbone April 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I initially disliked this CD. However, it has started to grow on me. Basically, it is Slobberbone for the masses. MUCH more mainstream production. Also, I don't think the songwriting is up to par with their other albums. If you are unadventurous, start with this one. If you want their best, go with Everything I Thought Was Wrong... Of course, if you are already a fan, you will want this anyway (and probably already have it).
