1993's Human Cannonball was the second (and final) album from School of Fish, an alternative rock band that almost, but not quite, made it big when people cared about this kind of music. The single "3 Strange Days", from the band's debut album was a minor hit, but for whatever reason didn't bring the band much attention. This is a shame, because School of Fish was easily as good, if not better than, most of that era's other alternative rock bands.

Human Cannonball isn't quite as good as their excellent self-titled album. There are more "filler" songs on this album, but there are still plenty of great tracks as well. Strong songs like "Take Me Anywhere", "1/2 a Believer", "Stand in the Doorway", and especially "Kerosene" more than make up for the album's weaker songs. They're not overly poppy, but they are catchy enough to really stick in your head hours after you listen to the album.

Sadly, the band members went their separate ways after this album. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Josh Clayton-Felt released a pair of impressive solo albums before dying of cancer in 2000.

Please buy this CD! SOF is one of the most under-rated bands in history. There are lots of catchy songs in this compilation, such as "Take Me Anywhere" (their biggest hit), "Everyword", "Blackout", etc. SOF was a bona-fide Alternative band, and a fine one at that. It's a shame they didn't get the recognition they deserved so that they could have gone onto bigger and better things.

Overall, I would say Human Cannonball was a solid follow-up to School of Fish’s s/t debut album. Does it fall short of surpassing its predecessor? Yeah. Does that make this a bad album? Of course not. Still I have to agree that it’s not quite up to par with the first album in terms of consistency. “Take Me Anywhere”, the only single off this album, is no “3 Strange Days” but good nonetheless. My personal favorites are “Fountain”, “Everyword”, “Kerosene”, and the instrumental closing track “Lament”. The rest of the tracks are at best good and at worst mediocre. The one aspect of this album that I feel is a step-up in comparison to the first is the rhythm section of bassist John Pierce and drummer Josh Freese. Their predecessors Dominic Nardini and Michael Petrak were sufficient but I feel that Pierce and Freese do a much better job of complementing Michael Ward’s awesome guitar riffs. Speaking of Ward, I would to close this review with one final thought about him and singer Josh Clayton-Felt, the other core member of SoF.

Had they chosen to keep going despite their lack of commercial success here, I honestly believe the two of them could have been just as big as other songwriting duos as let’s say Morrissey and Johnny Marr of The Smiths. Unfortunately, the chances of them ever getting back together are obviously zero seeing as how Josh tragically succumbed to cancer in 2000 but not before releasing a couple of solo albums that I definitely plan on buying after listening to his SoF catalog.

School of Fish was a great 90's alt. rock band. They should have been a lot bigger than they were.

A lot of people think Human Cannonball, their sophomore effort, wasn't as good. I respectfully disagree. It is as good and easily the equal of their first release. If you enjoyed their debut, you'll like this one too.

I just don't get the negative reviews here regarding Human Cannonball. This album is simply fantastic! There are zero "filler" songs. Get a copy and just listen. Overly-critical music fans drive me nuts.

I was born about the same time as rock n roll and, in my humble opinion, this album is damn near perfect. It rocks, it has intelligent lyrics, it has clean, beautiful melodies blended with straight up rock. It's well mixed and engineered, too, but it's the music that matters most... and these are simply great songs that you will sing in your head (or out loud) for days, after listening to them. Fountain and Kerosene both blow me away, and who can't love a song like Fuzzed and Fading?
