The rock ballads 'Love Is On The Way', All I Want Is You', 'Colors' and 'I Love You', carry you away to a different world (which is exactly what a ballad is supposed to do). Tracks like 'Hostile Youth', 'The Lizard' and 'One Step Closer' rock you hard and demand your attention. 'Water' throws a total curve ball at you and almost has a Prince vibe to it. The newest track not on the band's other discs 'Hey! Hey! Hey!, is a fun fist pounding rock anthem (do you remember when rock was still fun?). This album spans the carrer of one of the greatest musical and lyrical bands to have come around in a long time. The purchase of this disc will only leave you wanting more Kick. So fill your collection by buying "Saigon Kick", "The Lizard", "Water" and "Devil In The Details". There are a pair of imports out there as well.
I will leave you with this note. If you want a record that you can play over and over again, this is your band. If you want the same boring every song sounds the same disc, then go buy one of todays rock artists. Saigon Kick is one of the greatest bands to have come and gone. So purchase and enjoy!!![.]
I've been following Saigon Kick's music since I heard 'Love Is On The Way', as well as Jason Bieler's music in general. I think it is a disgrace that the band is known most widely as "that 80's hair band that did 'Love Is On The Way'", especially since none of their albums were released before 1991, with the last studio release 'Bastards' coming out in 1999. There was so much more to the band than that one song, even though I admit that was the song that made me go out and buy 'The Lizard' album.
I was a little shocked when 'Water' was released and Matt Kramer had left the band. The way he and Jason harmonized together was amazing.Read more ›
The new addition on this album, "Hey,Hey,Hey," is not one of my favorite pieces that the band has released into circulation, making me a little annoyed at the product in some ways. It really isn't reflectant of the band and their abilities at all. Still, the range of influences, coming from Saigon Kick, The Lizard, Water, and Devil in the Details are well arranged and are a nice selection to make a "best of" out of. The only thing I would have left out of it would have been the live songs, because I'm not really a fan of the live songs, and the additions I would have added would have been those that echo a little more depravity in the works, including "Sentimental Girl" (Water), "My Dog" (The Lizard), "Peppermint Tribe" (Water), and "Month of Sundays" (Saigon Kick). Any of those would have shown more of the oddity that the band can add to their songs, which is echoed somewhat in the lyrical innerworkings of "coming Home" (placed, if anyone's interested, in the rather funny to watch "Stone Cold, " featuring Brain Bosworth as an "actor" instead of a "football player") and the "Lizard," the angst within "hostile Youth," and the things someone would be willing to do for love in "Close to you.Read more ›

One of the most underrated and overlooked bands from the early 90's hard rock scene, Saigon Kick probably would have been hailed as visionary had they emerged a year or two later... Read morePublished on October 9, 2009 by Justin G.
