It's almost criminal that these guys aren't massive in North America. Primarily due to a limp marketing campaign by Sony with this debut (Amplifier has since amicably split from Sony), Amplifier-Debut is just a monsterous album. Combining equal parts Zeppelin, Sabbath, Floyd, and a dash of Rush, Amplifier comes off as something completely unique. Walls of guitars swell and swoop around the listener to lead them through 10 huge tracks... and that's not all. Along with the main first disc, a second is offered with 4 more tracks... and the song "Glory Electricity" is quite possibly the best b-side ever; it wasn't even on the original release which had 13 songs it.

Pressing "play" and one is immediately assualted with the track "Motorhead". This is "I'm on a mountain, turn it up to 11" space rock without the boredom that that genre is often known for. Sel Balamir's guitar playing is a perfect combination of Gilmour's "emotion through simplicity" stylings and Plant's baddass crunch. But it's Balamir's vocals that makes this band really stand out. No screams, no scratchy yells, just calm, emotive, and thoroughly engaging.

Next "Airborne" reveals the anthemic side of the band, and one of the reasons why their live shows are so incredible. 3:30+ minutes of build-up and then they take it back to a lower level only to thunder to an even higher level once they charge it up a minute later.

"Panzer" showcases the talents of Neil Mahony and his ballsy bass tactics, and Matt Brobin channels Bonham but not to the point of mockery... just in Bonham's gigantic sound.

And then what follows are 7 more songs, each with their own distinctive style and voice, yet wholly Amplifier. There is not a single dud or misfire amongst any of them.

I still can't believe how good it is. A clear-sounding recording where it actually sounds like all the amplifiers were set to 10.

Louder and less intricate than Oceansize.
More echo-y and noisy than Soundgarden.
Less inventive than Tool.
Heavier and less Las Vegas-y than Monster Magnet.
As loud as, and maybe even louder, than Kyuss.
Less spacey than other reviews would have you believe.
Less bleak than Russian Circles.
Way, way better songs and far less deliberately commercial than silly Staind/AshesDivide/PuddleOfMudd/LinkinPark NuMetal-type bands.

Special props to drummer Matt Brobin for keeping an incredible groove and heaviness during the slower numbers. He plays just a hair behind the beat, giving the music a lot of attitude. That's not easy to get right.

5 stars for standout songs 'Panzer', 'One Great Summer', and 'UFOs'.

I agree with all previews reviews.
Amazing CD. Although when the CD player starts and you hear the first sounds you may think "Oh, not another dull Tool, Creed etc. replica".
Wrong! Don't miss this CD. It's a rock masterpiece!
Of course not the style that has never played before, but this album is so easy to listen and so interesting.
