I've got to say I expected a bit more love for Tequila, the 2006 release from New York rockers Brand New Sin. Maybe my expectations weren't high enough. I just wanted another BNS album that rocked, and for my money Tequila does just that. This is a very heavy, hard rockin' album that follows in the same footsteps as Recipe for Disaster and the self-titled debut. To be blunt, it kicks a-double-ess.

It's puzzling to read complaints about the production of this album. I mean, a bright shiny production job really isn't needed for Brand New Sin's down n' dirty hard rock style. You want something that takes the listener as close as possible to the booze-soaked barroom floor in front of the band and a stack of amps, which is what this album delivers.

The whole album rocks, but the standout tracks are "Reaper Man", which features a guest appearance by Type O Negative frontman Peter Steele, and the closing cover of House of the Rising Sun. My only gripe is with the inclusion of four "songs" that clock in at a minute or less that really don't add anything to the album, but hey, that's what the skip button is for. The rest of the album is hard rock heaven.

Their previous album, "Recipe for Disaster", was easily one of the best hard rock albums of 2005. However, I can not even recommend buying this album. The production sounds as if it was recorded on cheap audio gear in somebody's basement. The vocals a buried most of the time, and the low end is non-existent. The songs don't even sound like they are on par with RFD. Although, is hard to tell because the sound of the album is so horrible.

Go see Brand New Sin live, they are awesome! And, let's hope they straighten out their production issues before their next release.

This album shows the growth of the band over there 4 year career. Music wise much more technical with more maturity. Excellent guitar work with very catchy riffs. Have seen BNS live around 25 times and every time they get better. What you here on there albums is what you get live. They do not layer and make music they can not play live. This is a kick you in the butt album and makes them a better band.

A fine display of the style of songs Brand New Sin brings to fans at

their 'live' shows. This is a 'bare bones' type of recording not for all

those 'perfect, clean & tweaked' studio kind of listeners. For those folks

who don't like the production -'You don't get it!' Brand New Sin set out

to give fans a recording they can play, learn the words and come to a show

and sing along and it all sounds the same. This band is making it's mark

at every live show. 'See The Sun' and the song with their 1st video from

this cd 'Motormeth' are fan favorites. The remake of 'House of the Rising Sun' recorded by many '50's & '60's folk singers and a hit for Britian's

Animals in the mid '60's has a little twist to it and is a great treat at

a live show.

This is another brutal metal assault CD by BNS. They are a perfect combination of metal and heavy rock. I can't help bangin' my head everytime I listen to it. They are a must see live band. I think they have a great heavy unique sound. They also actually know how to play their instruments -- great solos, great drums, and love the knarly lead vocals. The only band I have ever traveled six hours to see. If radio would stop stooping done to coorporate interests and sucky pop metal, these guys would rule.

ok, i've been a fan of Brand New Sin since they debuted in 2002, witnessing over 4 BNS shows, including the recent tour with BLS, in which they OWNED! but this new cd to me just sounds...rushed? trying to move into a heavy direction, at some points in the cd there is too much going on, almost sounds cluttered at parts where the actual music is hard to follow, while Joe's Vocals in most of the cd is almost inaudible. while not an overall not a bad cd, but definetly not their best offering, those more interested in BNS, should check out their self titled cd, old school nasty hard rock. great stuff.
