|i know i post alot of positive comments on this site because i'm not really into bad mouthing stuff..SO let's say i did 100 positive comments but i have to pick 10 as favorite discs well, this one would be included.. This is soooo good, this disc guided me through the nineties..'wheels in motion",can you move me,"i'm in trouble", 'coming home' all great aor songs. i wonder how many of you guys know about this band? I know drummer Aaron Mumma plays with the black mollys but where is the rest?

|AOR fans, you need this! nitrodoll, not enough people know about this one. My earlier description is just a minimal description. I don't think too many know who The Cauze, Hot Boy, Barrage, and Maxime are. If you can handle Boston with more keys or a heavier Survivor then you'd love this. Rush fans could get into this as well.

|Does this album have a motorbike on the front cover?
||Date: October 30, 2002 at 22:27|
|Yeah, it does David.

|If Honeymoon Suite styled hard rock is your flavor then you'll love this cd. The band hailed from Kansas City and were played quite a bit by Crankin' Craig on Z-Rock back in the early 90's when this cd came out! Excellent cd!

|Top quality melodic rock in the vein of a heavier Honeymoon Suite (Johnny Wayne's vocals remind me alot of Johnnie Dee's in places) and Biloxi. For an independent release this is superb and i can't think of one bad song on this disc. Criminal that they didn't get a major label backing as they were so much better than alot of the bands around at that time. Just be thankful that this was released and if you don't have it then as nitrodoll said above beg,blag, borrow, steal sell your partner for it

|Loving this thing the more I listen to it!! Thanks for ever turning me on to it, Tim!!! Ok..am I crazy, or does the guitar riff in "Can You Move Me" remind anyone else of the intro to Dokken's "It's Not Love"??? "What My Body Needs" (TO ME) kinda has a little Sage meets Kiss vibe to it. My favorite song HAS to be "1000 Times A Day"...followed by "Don't Control Me". Very nice disc!!!

|maybe the best cd in my collection..un -be -lie- va- ble talented band that everybody who calls himself a melodic rock fan should hear.. buy it, steal it whatever, but get it...

|This is a wicked mix of melodic rockers melding Honeymoon Suite, Mastedon and perhaps at the heavier end of the spectrum, a band like Shark Island. Sing Sing for the most part, are strong on keyboard layers, counter melodies, strong rhythmic guitars, and rich choruses. Vocalist and principal songwriter Johnny Wayne has a voice similar in part to Honeymoon Suite's Johnnie Dee as well as Prophet's Russell Arcara.

|Wheels In Motion is a great song! Surprised the ebay price on this one isn't higher - has to be pretty hard to find this one I would think. I found mine at a 2nd hand book store, but this doesn't strike me as an easy one to track down.
|From: TIM (2)
||Date: June 28, 2004 at 7:46|
|Agree with the Harem Scarem comments, but this is not as good (nor as worth tracking down) as some people have suggested. Honeymoon Suite is a great comparitor, but the catchy choruses aren't there. If you see it dirt cheap then pick it, and if you see it very expensive then let me know and I'll put my copy on eBay! I seem to remember their second album ("Human Cannonball") being better.
||Date: June 30, 2004 at 8:27|
|Great cd. Apparently Sing Sing also released a second cd called "Human Cannonball" in 1995. Can anyone confirm this? That second cd is as good as impossible to find.
|From: TIM (2)
||Date: June 30, 2004 at 8:43|
|Iudezu, yes they did release this. I think it's marginally better than this album, but then I don't like this first one very much. They sound like a 2nd rate Honeymoon Suite to me, so maybe best to get someone else's opinion! In all honesty, for my money there are much better gems out there than either of these two...
||Date: July 1, 2004 at 3:05|
|Thanks for the info TIM.
||Date: August 30, 2004 at 14:53|
|Masterpiece. Nothing 2nd rated to be found here. Every songs is just spot on. The guitar solos, the singing, the chorusses, lenght of the songs. A GEM THIS ALBUM !! Been looking for it soooo long and the search has been soooo rewarding. And by far better then Honeymoon suite. Sorry Tim. lol All a matter of taste right.

|I like this CD as it is good solid hard rock. Unfortunately, whilst being good and consistent, it didn't really have any frills, or thrills and didn't appear to have any songs that really reached out to grab me as an individual. Good solid hard rock, but I don't really find anything too special in this good collection of songs.
||Date: September 9, 2004 at 9:22|
|The "Human Cannonball" CD was released by a different band, so as far as I'm aware this was the only masterpiece of melodic mayhem put out by the band. Perhaps Johnny Wayne et al would like to set the record straight?..
||Date: December 28, 2004 at 9:08|
|I was one of the engineers on this album, and the bands road soundman for three years. I have a handful of cd's left. Let me know if you would be interested.

|doug..you did not leave an email to conyact you with
||Date: January 4, 2005 at 4:55|
|This is a brilliant cd -not a bad song on it. Like others have said get wherever you can because if you don't like this you don't like hard melodic rock. If you ever feel pissed off put this cd on and you'll not give a fuck about your troubles. GET IT!
||Date: January 4, 2005 at 10:45|
||Date: January 18, 2005 at 8:36|
|One advice on this album: GET IT !
||Date: February 2, 2005 at 0:35|
|Im wonder if anyone has this in mp3 to download ... ??
||Date: February 2, 2005 at 4:18|
|Yep i do John. Leave your emailaddress and i will contact you.
||Date: February 2, 2005 at 18:50|
|Awesome its firstname.lastname@example.org thanks a million
||Date: March 12, 2005 at 13:02|
|Anyone who loves this one ought to give "Ask A Stranger" a try. 3 or 4 songs sound like they came off of the SingSing playlist. The rest is great too.
||Date: March 12, 2005 at 16:52|
|After listening to this one for awhile, it certainly grows on you. The opener IMO is the best track. A cool hard rocker. A good comparison is a harder edged Honeymoon Suite. Although that comparison can be misleading a bit too. They certainly have their own sound. There are a few songs that I skip when listening to this but all in all it is quite enjoyable and worth tracking down. Kudos to Doug for helping me acquire an original copy.
||Date: March 14, 2005 at 13:47|
|donīt understand why this band was compared that often with honeymoon suite. i canīt hear that. nice melodic rock, but not as catchy as other bands out of that genre (yes, for example h.suite). this imo is not a must. 7/10
||Date: April 7, 2006 at 2:55|
|this band kicks total ASS. i have a ton of cds and this is one of the best out there. listen to the last song = "dont control me". its one of the best on the cd. i dont think it gets a fair chance being last on the disc. as well as the first 4 songs on the cd. the rest just grow on you. play this cd a few times and i guarentee a few of these songs will grow on you. my IPOD is sick of playing "don't control me" i sure of it!!!!!!
||Date: April 14, 2006 at 14:41|
|Great mid-western band. I remember them touring in 1994 and were something to see live. A first class effort that really encapsulates the early 90's Hard Rock sound. I had so hoped they would release a follow up. Anyway, if you haven't heard this disc it is well worth checking out.
||Date: October 23, 2006 at 9:09|
|Agree with Chad. Comparisons to Honeymoon Suite are inevitable. There's no weak moment on the record. Highly recommended -8,5 / 10.
||Date: October 25, 2006 at 18:43|
|Like HONEYMOON SUITE circa MONSTERS UNDER THE BED IS THIS. Nothing ground shaker, but I DON'T WANNA LOOSE HER is a great song

|Great AOR/Melodic Rock album, un gran album mas Rock Melodico que AOR pero van de la mano si lo tuyo es Giant ni lo dudes, ahora una pena la television como apoya ese tipo de basuras y modas pasajeras claro como la mayoria de mediocres y hablo a nivel mundial no solo aca apoyan eso entonces le dan la mayor cobertura, cuando vino Rata Blanca a Peru paso eso no pues que bah una pena una banda de verdaderos musicos no son apoyados como debe ser pero la escoria si eso se llama mediocridad en todo.

|Believe me ! Sing Sing is one of the best AOR/melodic HR thing i've heard for a long time, how is it possible this band couldn't make it bigger ! Never hesitate if you see this CD ! Jump on it (but don't break it hahaha). Where are you guys ???!!!!
||Date: December 11, 2007 at 13:57|
|This is a killer cd,worth more than alot of the so so rare cds commanding mega money,rare as hell, great songs. great production, johnny wayne [singer /guitarist] was a true star on this cd, songs catchier than a dose of lobsters
||Date: April 12, 2009 at 17:34|
|Personal conflicts arose in the recording of their 2nd cd and the band went their separate ways.. Pat works in the medical field now, Brian is a pilot and Johnny plays in a casino/lounge act called Johnny & the Gasman
