The Want are a Rock&Roll band!I've read this band being thrown in with "stoner rock"and I guess if that means guitar fueled retro styled rock with a modern edge,then it is!The first track is called "Supertoker" and it fits,into "pass it on"(do I smell a theme here?)"slight of hand" recalls "Smokin'"era Humble Pie."star 69" is a psychedelic rave up,sort of the Yardbirds on really heavy drugs.Every cut on this album has that heavy classic sound to it.The last track,the soul crushing "Goodbye"just rolls you over and leaves you wanting more!I would definitely recomend this disc to anyone into Queens of the stone age,unidia or just good old heavy rock and roll!

The want are a bunch of talented guys who were unfortunately crushed by the idolization of their own influences. While they are certainly entertaining and obviously all solid musicians, its all too easy to see who they are trying to be like/sound like. Listening to their album you quickly realize that these guys worship Led Zepplin and Black sabbath. They also seem to be influenced by most 70's rock. The problem is...the influence is so strong that you cant help but hear exactly who they are trying to sound like and that makes them a "poor man's" version of the very bands that have inspired them to get into music in the first place. Its a typical senerio folks. Sometimes...your musical influences are so strong...that you cant break out of the mesmerizing standard they have already set. They say that immitation is the highest form of flattery...unfortunately...in music..if it sounds like somthing that has already been done...than that is exactly what it is. Done. let this be a lesson to you kids...lock yourself away. smash your raidos and records. Do what ever you can to ensure that..if you do happen to get into music...you find your own musical voice. Or..youll end up "wanting" more. still...this album is definatly worth a listen...the compositions are very true to what they try to emulate. 70's heavy rock. I will say this...sadly...even though these guys are a 70's regurgitation...their album is "better sounding" than 95 percent of the so called rock bands out now...even if it is a copycat band. lets face it folks...rock bands today are all..for the most part...swallowed up by the very same people the Want were swallowed up by. And...for some reason...All male rock Vocalist compleatly suck now. Yea...those 70's and 80's vocalists set a very high bar. aparently a bar no young punk of today can seem to climb over. maybe its in the water? perhaps the food? or could it be somthing else? I guess we will never know. And even if you could know...would you Want to?

Yes, Want singer Kenneth Leer sounds an awful lot like Robert Plant. But beyond that, the similarities to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and the like are pretty much the same as any other band.

If you can get past the voice (75 percent of the people I've introduced this album to couldn't), you're in for a killer ride with "Greatest Hits, Vol. 5."

Highlights of the record include the pounding stomp of "Slight of Hand" and "Groove; the wicked, simple riffs in "A Word To The Soul" and "Star 69" (which is easily lost in the haze after "Slight" on the album); and the pleasantly shifty "4 Pictures."

Why the name "Greatest Hits?" At first, I thought it was a joke, playing on the ancient tone of the album. But as it turns out, this disc is actually a collection of The Want's first two efforts: "5 O'Clock Orange" and "Acid Millenium." Good luck finding those. I tried `cause I was bored the other day, and it turned out to be an exercise in frustration.
