Editorial Reviews

On "Snakehouse", The Cliks have created something mysterious yet transparent; specific yet universal; timeless yet intoxicatingly new. They're a band of such primal power and unguarded emotion that they'll take your breath away. This is music that seems to emanate from a parallel universe, one where fundamental distinctions are blurred, living passionately is the highest level of existence, and rock and roll is the ultimate form of expression.

I just got this album yesterday, but have been awaiting the release of Snakehouse for months. The Cliks are a great new band hailing from Canada. Their sound reminds me of a band called Tina & the B Sides, a modern Melissa Etheridge or even Fiona Apple with a kick arse backing band. The album standout is, so far, their initial release "Oh Yeah". I'm also enjoying their rendition of Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River", which came as a surprise. The lyrics seem to have a pain about them they are trying to release, "When I'm wasted you sucker punch me". I recommend giving this album and band a listen. It will be worth your time. [...]

This album and this band simply cannot be recommended highly enough. Catchy and alluring hooks abound, dark and compelling lyrics throughout - this is just exciting, well-played and satisfying rock music. Add in the band's gender ambiguity and it all makes for a sense of discovery of a treasure that nobody else has quite caught on to yet. Fun stuff. No allowances expected or needed for evaluating a "girl" band. I caught this band performing live down in Cancun, bought their CD, and have not been able to force myself to listen to anything else since. Every song is catchy. I am used to settling for albums with two or three good cuts on the entire CD. This one doesn't have a loser in the bunch. Buy it - you won't be sorry.

No, seriously.

I absolutely LOVE this band. Love, love, love. The songs are catchy, they're great to sing along to, and the lead singer's voice is great. Surprisingly enough, the only song I always skipped over was their hit "Oh Yeah". I saw them live and...now I'm excited to hear it. If you ever get a chance to see them live, DO IT! My friends and I drove 4 hours (round trip) on a work night to see them and none of us will ever regret the experience. The band is really friendly, they put on a great show, and they come out to meet everyone after they're done.

I'm sitting at my desk blinking and speechless because I can't believe no one else has reviewed this CD! My review title is an honest opinion & that's saying a lot because I think this juust edged out Johnette Napolitano's "Scarred" for the number one spot. I guess it's up to me to do the reviewin'.

I found the Cliks thanks to Logo's NewNowNext last year. One song "Oh Yeah" hooked me. I HAD to get the CD. When I did, I found each song as hook-y and smart as the previous. The songs are raw, funny, and real. they get stuck in your head because of the music...but the lyrics stick there too. So I hum them and sing them...and yes, I have to be careful where I sing them out loud...not only because my voice has been known to draw dogs to howl, but also because you jyst can't sing "Complicated" while you're shelving books in the kids section of your library...buy the CD, find out why.

Listening to this CD the first couple times reminds me of how I felt when I listened to the first Melissa Etheridge CD years ago (ok, so it was an album...it was that long ago). I've nearly worn this CD out. I got lucky enough to see them in concert and I heartily reccommend that experience too. May they long stay together and record MANY fine Cds!

This band opened the True Colors Chicago show, starting to a house that was about half-way empty, but they pulled 'em in when they kicked into OH YEAH and showed what no-nonsense rock can sound like in the right hands. All sexual politics aside, here's great rock: tough and simple. They can play any house, anywhere and proved it live; the SNAKEHOUSE album captures them just the same.

The album sounds as great as their live show; crank up the bass and rip it up!

For all the salivating reviews, you'd think this band would be better known or better selling. They're neither. It's because the material just isn't THERE. Transgender male lead singer/songwriter Lucas Silveira has a gorgeous, steamy voice, but that voice only delivers it's full potential within a rollicking, uptempo beat. Thus, why the only 2 good songs are the percolating percussives, "Cry Me A River" and "Oh Yeah." The cover image is quite telling, it's a dynamic photo of movement, transition and shedding skins. If only the songs within weren't draggy, go-nowhere melodies without muscle, crescendo or release.

This is where a good producer would have made all the difference; just because Lucas loves singing forlornly in 4/4 waltz time, doesn't mean he should, because his personal energy and his vocal vibe is all pent-up frustration and off-kilter sex drive-- like an idling Porsche! This sportscar should be blowing by us on the highway, but instead, the driver seems determined to master parallel parking, because somebody told them that girls aren't good at that.

The passion fairs no better on The Cliks' sophomore effort. No way should the titular song "Dirty King" be surrounded by a bunch of slow, carefully phrased, hookless, middle-of-the-road tinker tunes like "Emily," "Henry" and "Love Gun.” Lucas should be spitting fire with a Chrissie Hynde sneer, and a Pretenders' guitar hook.
