Let me just say that Tod A. is God and this album proves it. What a swagger! What an sneer! What a voice! This album will bring you up when you're down and keep you up when you're up. I read a review saying the songs are like little bastard children dancing on the devil's grave. Can I hear an amen, brothers and sister?

An all-time favorite! A friend turned me on to this CD about 2yrs. ago when I was really bored with heavy rotation radio and all things Seattle. On first listen I literally got out of my chair and said 'Who is this? These guys are GREAT!" (As a musician and listener - I don't usually do that) After over 2 years owning "Get Off The Cross...", I haven't worn it out yet and is high on my "stranded on a desert island" list.
While maintaining a pop-ish sort of appeal and accessibility to their sound, Firewater blends in a middle-eastern or even slightly Russian flavor into thier sound, giving a whole new (to the popular American palette) and interesting dimension which suits the agreeable, albiet slightly darker songwriting perfectly! "Some Strange Reaction", "Bourbon + Division", "Mr. Cardiac" and "Snakeyes & Boxcars" are personal favorites.
I would file this CD with Led Zeppelin - I, Pearl Jam - Ten, or any other album that just simply defined a new standard. As a fan of everyone from Greg Brown to The Dead Milkmen to Slayer to Savatage to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Stuck Mojo, I can see an appeal to many of those fans too. Buy it. It rocks! Although I'd love to see them in a club, these guys should sell out stadiums!

I stumbled across firewater at spinner.com, where their cover of "another perfect catastrophe" was being played...I had never heard of the band and came here hoping for other .WAV's of their music. The previous review of this album is pretty dead-on, except that I think it minimizes the russian influence. Also, I was caught thinking that this is reminiscent of Tom Waits, but with a melody. After checking the publication date ('96) I was surprised that I had never previously heard of these guys-- this particular disk is awesome. My own criteria for buying a disk is that I like at least 2 songs...although I bought this one "unseen". It was a good gamble, I love this entire disk. It is my favorite disk so far of '98, and would enthusiastically recommend it.

This album is astounding. Simple, sometimes almost lazy sounding indie-rock with a strong sense of eastern European melody; giving off the pungent aroma of a freshly opened bottle of whiskey, and going down just as smooth. It's gypsy rock so thick and rich, it almost satisfies hunger; beautiful music with an anti-christian aesthetic. This is what today's youth need to be eating up by the millions...
