Editorial Reviews

Give Vancouver power-rock crew Econoline Crush credit for having the nerve to experiment. Formed in the early '90s at the height of painfully earnest hard rock popularity, the quintet took the initiative to play around with the form on their second disc, 1997's The Devil You Know. The soaring ballads and clenched-fist crooning of vocalist Trevor Hurst remain, but tracks like "Surefire" and "All That You Are" feature Econoline Crush dabbling in electronic beats and Nine Inch Nails-style techno aggression. It's an interesting diversion from an otherwise generic hard rock record and one of the few elements of The Devil You Know that doesn't sound dated years after its release. --Matt Galloway

Econoline Crush instantly moved themselves into one of my top five favorite bands when I heard them Play at Edgefest in Edmonton back in the summer of 97. I went out and bought the CD and have been impressed with the music right from day one. Trevor Hurst's lyric writing is incredibly inspired, and I love Surefire, a song about how women can never be satisfied. All time favorite EC song though is definately "Sparkle and Shine." And just remember, Canada had them first, we are their best fans. I'm sort of disappointed that it's taken so long for them to go back to work on a new album, but I guess I'm happy that they've made it big in the States, something that is very hard to do with the Pop Culture music that goes on. Just remember all you teenie boppers - this is music. A combination of technology and incredible talent. All that Backstreet Boy stuff is just plain and simple talentless. End of Story.

This cd, for me, defines industrial.

Industrial is NOT another term for nu-metal, and it does NOT have to sound like NIN. Econoline Crush is a very good example of being industrial without sounding overly angry or Reznor like.

The band Econoline Crush are sadly no more now, but this record lives as testament that listenable and publically acceptable industrial rock, although rare, does indeed exist. It escapes me as to why this band wasn't more popular out of its native Canada.

PS: To get the full benefit of this cd, you will have to have a really good stereo, and listen to it a few times over. The songs are very deeply layered, and it will surprise you just how much new stuff you will hear each time you listen to the same track.

"The Devil You Know" is a fine effort by Econoline Crush. Many people want to believe that this band is the Canadian version of Nine Inch Nails, but that could not be further from the truth. Crush really puts forth organic, guitar-based songs complemented with programming, keyboards, and the like. They are all about rocking and are less "industrial" than even Stabbing Westward. Best of all, their CD is full of emotional angst from the heart that is good for when you are feeling down.

Chances are, you've probably never heard of Econoline Crush... unless you're from Canada. If you're Canadian, you're probably familiar with Econoline Crush's "The Devil You Know" (TDYK) because it was constantly being played on TV and on the radio.
TDYK was the band's second full length release (the first one being Affliction), and you can definitely hear the difference in the sound. For instance, there are 5 members in Econoline Crush in TDYK as opposed to 4 in Affliction. Many of the original members are were longer in the band. TDYK moves away from their hints of industrial music, and more towards radio-friendly rock music. Also, Econoline Crush seemed to get a lot more recognition in Canada than ever before. So much, that they would get mobbed by teenaged girls if they didn't slip away to the backstage after the shows.
TDYK is still a great album because it has variety and passion.
Home, Surefire, Sparkle & Shine, and Burnt are classic fast paced rock songs best to be experienced in concert.
Deeper (a slow paced, lonely, love song) and Razorblades & Bandaides (an almost George Michael-type ballad) are some of the lesser-known gems on the album. It demonstrates the band's talent when they're not thrashing distorted guitars and sampling drum loops.
All That You Are is the most radio-friendly song on the album, that even pop music radio stations would play it! It's a good song, but after a while it becomes a bit too sappy and repetitive.
All in all, I give this album a 4 out of 5 because there's enough variety between the songs, but the album is still lacking that edge that they had before. It's still a lot better than most albums out there! The Japanese poem on track 99 is kinda cute too!

This is a very good cd. I had never heard of this band in my life until i listened to the samples from amazon.com and thought the cd sounded pretty kewl. I went out and bought it to try something new and i'm very glad i did. This cd is like no other that I own. It's a twisted mix of tehno and hardcore with great lyrics. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a different kind of cd to put in their collection. I love listening to this cd before I go out with friends because it really pumps you up. This band has great energy and I think they will be very big someday.

I first heard Econoline Crush this summer at a local radio station's day-long music festival. Econoline Crush put on an energetic show and I was inspired to buy their CD. Right now, this is the only disk in my CD player. I guess that means I like it! "Home" really rocks but I don't agree with Jeff Bateman's comment that Econoline Crush is Canada's answer to Nine Inch Nails. I'm a NIN fan and don't find the comparison valid. I'm looking forward to seeing Econoline Crush when they return to Boston. All in all, I'd recommend this CD to all rock fans.

This album is great for a change of scenery for me. Even though i'm not too fond of alternative music, this one is upbeat with some good tunes. I was fortunate enough to receive free tickets to their show at the Belly Up in S.D. with a meet-and-greet after the show. These guys were very humble and approachable. They certainly have their vision and priorities set. I suggest you give it a spin and see what you think.
