Editorial Reviews

Although Brant Bjork has four solo records out to date, this is his first release with his Brothers of Rock. It is a musical celebration of the roads and rituals to inner and outer freedom. The Bros drop lots of killer music on this 19 song double CD release, featuring songs like 'Makin the Pony Trot', 'Kiss Away' and 'Let the Truth Be Known'. Features a couple of guest guitars from desert legend Mario Lalli, a dusty version of Cream's 'Sunshine of Your Love' and insane custom cover art. Duna. 2005.

When I give this album a spin, I always think how I need to listen to it more frequently. But perhaps that is part of the magic.
From start to finish, this album is immensely satisfying; with killer riffs/hooks; some great lyrics containing humour, respect and yes, love. Brant can get cheeky and immediately disarm you with the quick wit, charm and depth of his punchline.
I love this album. When listening I always hope it gets the recognition it deserves- it is, in my humble opinion, a master work.

From the cover art to the lay-out of this double-disc to the songs themselves, this record has a modern-day Carlos Santana vibe to it. B. Bjork digs laid-back & rockin' records from the late '60s & '70s. That is happily obvious.

This is his first release under the official title, Brant Bjork & The Bros. The bros being Cortez, Michael Peffer & Dylan Roche. Side A, called something else that Cheech & Chong might say, features ten songs, while side B, again called something else that Cheech & Chong might say, has 9 songs. That's a big, double-disc slab of 19 Brant Bjork created stoner jams that old fans & new will surely dig. If you've got your hearing, some style and a pulse. If not, then good luck to you. You'll need it.

For an effort that more or less copmrises Brant Bjork's reminiscences of his life, two discs is actually pretty short. I haven't heard his other solo work, but I am a fan from his Kyuss and Fu Manchu days. This collection of songs really took me over like a slow burn, though. Nineteen cuts of smoothly laid-back guitar rock about growing up in LA, playing arcade games (that one's for the "older kids"), first loves, gettin' stoned, and chilling out with buddies. You can't beat this...I just can't wait until summer when I can kick back on my porch with some cold cervezas and this record. (Oh, the cover tunes rock - anyone that can pull off an original yet faithful version of my favorite Stones tune gets an automatic five stars from me).

The first time I listened to this album I was slightly disappointed -it reminded of his other work, good but always making you wish that it could have been better.

Well after listening to it a couple of times I changed my tune. This is by far his best work to date. Other than Robert Plant's Mighty Rearranger, this is the best album I have heard thus far this year.

If this guy could ever buckle down or get hooked up with a star producer, he could create a hit record.

As is, he is still pretty good to listen to. It is just unfortunate that the public en masse has not caught on him to yet.

Buy the album -in this case it is well worth the dollars.

This album is one of the best debuts period. Brant was well established before this release and he blends very well with a full band. This set us a must have for any lover of all things rock!
