4.0 out of 5 stars Eruption on Bass December 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I give this album four stars and that is for one reason and one reason only. Track 7. On track 7 Stu Hamm manages to paste together a melody of sorts that includes six minutes and 12 seconds of the most amazing bass playing you will ever hear. He combines slapping and tapping to create an awesome riff that includes a rendition of the Charlie Brown theme song. I would say that this is the musical equivalent of Eddie Van Halens "Eruption". The rest of the album however can not be spoken about in such a high manner. Stu teams up with Joe Satriani and writes some good musical tunes, but the cheesy vocals reminiscent of bad 80's music kills the rest of the album. The only other song on this that I listen to is The Urge. I must say though that the CD is worth buying for track 7 alone, especially if you are a bass player. I would recommend this to any bass player who is looking to hear the best six minutes and 12 seconds of bass playing ever and or anyone else who likes to hear some good slap bass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Even when bad, Stu is still good May 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I do agree some of the vocal tracks are uninspiring. However, I HATE rap and loved "If You're Scared, Stay Home." Rather than listening to it as rap (Which is only a few seconds of it), I believe you're supposed to listen to it as comedy supported by funk bass. "Who Do You Want Me To Be Today?" is decent--at least Stu can sing in key, unlike many alleged rockers I won't humiliate by name.

And anyone who can find a duet with Stu on bass and Eric Johnson on guitar as uninspiring needs to check their pulse. They're dead. Absolutely screaming liquid Texas blues with upbeat and restrained playing from Stu. Wow.

And yeah, "Quahogs, Anyone?" is a solo to rank with Jack Bruce and Geddy Lee.

If a couple of tracks don't appeal to you, then skip them. But do catch the rest.

3.0 out of 5 stars "cheesy vocals reminiscent of bad 80's music" June 14, 2003
By Bret
Format:Audio CD
Adam Morse's comments (below) Hits the nail on the head when he says "cheesy vocals reminiscent of bad 80's music". What he is too kind to say is that the production and a lot of the other (non vocal) melodies fit into the same category. This album is fantastic to listen to for the bass playing and terrible to listen to in almost every other respect. I grit my teeth while listening to this album for the pleasure of Stu's playing.

Not as good as RFA or Kings Of Sleep from Stu, but it's still Stu at his best - amazing techniques, beautiful melodies - if he only hadn't started singing on this album is could've been superb!!!!! Anyways - it's still worth checking!

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Stu with EJ December 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Still a good album many years later. Worth it for the live rendition of Vince Guaraldi's Linus & Lucy excerpt alone. Eric Johnson also shows up on a few tracks and brings his signature violin-esque tone goodness to the table.

I didn't find this album to be as introspective as a few of his later albums, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, more just something to be aware of. It's a little more "rebellious/rock & roll" in its general attitude. Definitely worth owning if you appreciate Stu's take on where bass guitar can go.
