Editorial Reviews

The multi talented Canadian pro-hockey star didn't generate the kind of interest he thought he might from L.A. record labels, but his fellow countrymen have seen to it that the know-it-alls down south are knocked off their high horse with the popularity of this EP. Roberts and group play melodic, straight ahead rock n roll, never forgetting his indie roots yet find new audiences with his commercial approach. Catch the start of the future star's career here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little guy from Montreal makes good August 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This guy first came to my attention while I was visiting Calgary, Alberta Canada during the summer of 2003. I heard one of his songs on the radio and then I noticed my friend had a copy of his EP at home, so I decided to give it a listen. Half of the EP grabs you immediately and the other half grows on you pretty quickly. This is some totally fun stuff! I can't quite describe what it's like, not because it's something way out there but because it's actually quite conventional sounding. Sam Roberts' greatest asset is that he doesn't require gimmicks or avant-grde posturing to put out some good straightforward rock. The track 'Don't Walk Eileen' is the catchiest number on the album and the one that grabs your attention first. This guy is like the (...)child of BTO, Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Beach Boys, Rick Springfield, Grand Funk Railroad and God knows what else. I sense a touch of that late 70's/early 80's pop-rock vibe in his stuff. Every song is well crafted, with distinct instrumentation and fine, tight musicianship (made all the more impressive by the fact that Roberts played every instrument on the album except the drums.) 'My Love Is Freeing' is a slow laid-back song that starts off with a quirky guitar part and some slightly off key singing, but the chorus refrain soars in such a fantastically mellow way that it's not easy to say what it sounds like. Everything here sounds very familiar and you can hear 1000 different bands and influences in his sound, but you can't exactly say who or what. Roberts mixes everything up so well that he actually gives us something new without even trying. 'This Is How I Live' sounds like a hillbilly rave-up squeezed through the pop harmonies of Cheap Trick. It also features the immortal line ''I'm young, dumb and ready to come ALIVE! Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have record September 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this EP after hearing Brother Down on the radio and was pleasantly surprised to find that all the tracks are as strong as Brother Down. What works is the spontaneity of the riffs - the songs really move. The songwriting is the strong point, as Roberts channels the best of Jane's Addiction, Elvis Costello, and even the Beach Boys into a neat package.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God Sam found his true calling... November 16, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sam is a true talent. A fun album with catchy tunes you will be humming all day. I agree with the influences/connections that the other reviewers have suggested and would suggest that there is some Jane's Addiction type of influence here as well. Fantastic first effort, head and shoulders above most of the stuff on the radio today. Can't wait for a full-length disc. Really glad that Sam got all that pro-hockey stuff out of the way to move on with what he was meant to do!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album September 15, 2002
By Tiffany
Format:Audio CD
Although the CD only has 6 tracks, each song grabs your attention right until the very end, making you want to hear more... Hopefully a 2nd record is in the making!
