Unlike most people, I was not introduced to Sick Puppies by the "Free hugs" song. I was actually just listening to a local radio station and "You're Going Down" came on, it being the first single from "Tri-Polar". Needless to say, I cranked it up and immediately went to work finding out who this band was.

As "You're Going Down" got more airtime closer to the release of "Tri-Polar", I found myself becoming more and more addicted to that song. So doing some research and even purchasing their first (major) album "Dressed Up As Life", I could hardly wait to see what these Australian rockers had come up with this time around.

From song one "War", Shimon Moore's infectious vocals dig deep, and they don't let go until the last note of "White Balloons". This is especially true in such songs as "Should've Known Better" and "Don't Walk Away". But as a whole, the entire album is a great listen; there really isn't a single song you need to skip. In fact, you'll probably find yourself hitting the repeat button once or twice.

So for someone who loves this kind of music, I'd highly recommend this album. For as much generic-rock that's out there, it's nice to know there's a few albums that come out and are exceptional, if not to the point of being elite.

I remember getting into the Sick Puppies by mistake. Two years two of my friends and I went to see Chevelle in concert and the Sick Puppies just happened to open for them and I'm glad they did. The Puppies easily tore the place down and after the show it was amazing to meet these three very grounded, amazing artists.

I won't lie, before I bought "Tri-Polar" on Tuesday I was nervous because I enjoyed "Dressed Up As Life" so much and was hoping they'd not let down, you know, the "sophmore slump." One of the same friends who was with me at the show listened to the CD with me for the first time and we loved it from the start. Shim's guitar work is amazing, Emma's bass is sexy and Mark's drums are very solid.

Shim's vocals shine again, as do Emma's in the background and even getting the co-staring role in "White Balloons." I love "Tri-Polar" as much as I did "Dressed Up As Life" but don't expect the same CD, it's a big step up from a maturing band. Standout tracks (for me) include "Riptide", "So What I Lied", "Should've Known Better" and many more.

So buy "Tri-Polar" and support this amazing band. At least do it for them.

This Aussie band has tremendously impressed ne. Their songs evoke a plethora of issues their age, my age and in-between can relate to. They are incredibly talented and they share that with their audience. "I hate you" is a hymn to ambivalence in the language of new rock whereas "You're going down" is the perfect radio single.Although hard rock oriented, you smell the teenage and beyond angst.My favorite is White Ballons!

This was my first experience with Sick Puppies after hearing the song "Maybe" on the radio. That being said after listening to the whole CD several times it wasn't even my favorite song on the album. I'm generally someone that has a hard time listening to CDs all the way through in one sitting. This CD is an exception to that.

I hadn't listened to thier other music until after this CD. When I did I heard a definite difference. So if you are someone that gets angry at a band for having CDs that have a different feel to them you might not like this.

On a personal note the music I like the most is music that I can connect with on some level the lyrics. I could do that with several of the songs on this CD. The music is the kind I can listen to as well without having to pay attention to every word and still come away with an ejoyable experience.

There is enough ebb and flow with the different songs with the more agrresive songs such as "War" and "You're Going Down", followed up with the slower songs like "Odd One" and "Maybe". I thought the song "White Ballons" was a nice finish to the album.

I first tracked down Sick Puppies after hearing "You're Going Down" and "Maybe" on Pandora but ended up purchasing the album because of "White Balloons." It was definitely a solid purchase, and I had no idea how much bang I would get for the buck. Sick Puppies make no apologies and rock hard all the way through!

These are my favorite songs off the album. "You're Going Down" and "Maybe" are slightly overplayed in my opinion, hence a lower rating:

White Balloons - "Angels lift me, are you with me? I'm holding onto you like I'm holding to white balloons. Carry me away!"
Odd One
You're Going Down
Maybe
I Hate You
Don't Walk Away
War
Master of the Universe
In It For Life
Should've Known Better
Riptide

Songs I don't care for at all:

So What I Lied
Survive

I had heard their singles on the radio and liked them, but that doesn't compare to how I feel about the Tri Polar cd. I saw these guys live and they were amazing. Their stage presence is awesome, they get the fans into it, and Emma absolutely rocks on the bass. I bought their cd after the show (March 8, 2010), where we also got to meet them, and cannot stop listening to it. Their hard sounds and raw emotion are expressed in every song, with a couple mellow ones in between to show that they can do more than just head-banging rock music.
Extremely talented group, cannot wait to see more of them!
