4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful hardcore/'emo' January 12, 2003
By Chris
Format:Audio CD
This is the complete works of the fantastic band shotmaker. I've been a fan of this band since I picked up their LP with Maximillian Colby (another great band from the time) in a used record shop. I prefer the first cd of this two disc set (their later and more "melodic", if thats the right term, releases), however their earlier work has some real gems as well (the 'Crayon Club' LP and various 7" releases.) In the liner notes it's noted that all but the tracks from the "Mouse Ear/Forget Me Not" LP are recorded off the vinyl records, due to DAT tapes being lost. Honestly, I think that the pops, clicks, and hisses of the records make this release sound all the better, as they are not so prevelant as to being annoying (or even noticable if you aren't looking for them.) That all said, this two cd set gets only four stars instead of five for the simple reason that the band wasn't doing anything different at the end of their career than at the beginning, they played it hard and fast for the few short years they existed and rarely wandered from that formula, which makes for an almost exhausting listen if you hear both disc's back to back. The lyrics can also be quite on the esoteric and vauge side at times. However, all in all this is a great retrospective of a great band. I only wish I hadn't been in elementary school when they were in existence and could have gone to a show, heh.
This is music from back when "emo" meant "emotional hardcore" and had yet to be stripped of all valid meaning and tossed around by the ever-trendy and MTV to push things such as Dashboard Confessional (which isn't terrible music, but that's a subject for another review.) Buy it. Love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece December 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I once went to a small club to see the Archers of Loaf. I got there early as I usually do and a band I'd never heard of took the stage. They were a three piece and they rocked like no band I'd ever seen. They were from Belleville, Ontario (middle of nowhere) and they were Shotmaker. They mopped the floor with The Archers of Loaf. I immediately bought the two records they had available (one cd and one vinyl) and now Troublemanunlimited has put both those records and some extras together on this superb package. One of my favorite records; the greatest hardcore songs I own; the best Canadian rock band ever. rip.

5.0 out of 5 stars The pentultimate hardcore band of all-time! September 8, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Of course, many would disagree with my title for this review for pretty much stating my otherwise strong opinion as fact, but if you are a fan of hardcore(non-sXe) music, Shotmaker is the bottom line. I never had the honor of seeing them live, but from the first time I heard their stuff on my friend's vinyl I was completely and utterly blown away. Their violent rhythm and pure electric firepower annunciated by each of the three members' tearing vocals in such a familiar but new way got me shaking every time I turned them on. This complete anthology is one of the best collections of any band, much less one that epitomizes the brutally naked power of hardcore.

5.0 out of 5 stars progressive post rock discordance February 5, 2001
Format:Audio CD
ive got to say it, this is one of the best rock records i own. from quiet, introspective driving melodies, building up into loud bursts of feedback and confusion. i know this is gonna get tagged as "emo-core" or whatever b.s. category, but this band is so much more than that, a literal roller coaster of emotion and distortion that truly makes the listener remember them for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars while i still think this band was great... March 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
...it has to be said that the drumming pretty much leaves a lot to be desired (and i know he sang too, but come on...). The music is great, and they were amazing when i saw them live at the More Than Music fest back in the day, but now when i listen to them, the drums almost kill it for me. Another record that i still love, but has the same flaws, is Lync's "These Are Not Fall Colors"....great songs, really crappy drumming.
I actually prefer the first disc, because i really liked the "mouse ear-forget me not" record when it came out, and i still enjoy it more now...they took a more Unwound approach on that one, which i found/find more interesting (the first records are still good though).
My favorite part about this band was always the guitar sound...not many hardcore bands had such a thick and brutal tone.
Check out the Maximillian Colby discography too (their side of the split with Shotmaker is unbelievably good).
