This is actually a pretty good album. "Brand New Amerika" was a minor hit. Really there are no bad songs on it. The only problem is that the album came out at a time when this style of hard rock was being phased out in favor of Grunge and alternative. So the album really never stood a chance of becoming as big as it deserved to. Recommended. You can probably find it pretty cheap.

From: TIM Date: December 1, 2002 at 17:40
I think I liked it as well. I'll have to find what I did with it.

From: The Fizzy One Date: December 1, 2002 at 19:52
I remember "Brand New Amerika," quite well from hearing it played a awful lot on the late, lamented Rock 103 in Baltimore. Funny, I was just thinking about that song the other day. Huh!

From: poisonarrow Date: December 2, 2002 at 7:15
nice disc. I was really excited about it when I first heard it. Catchy hard rock, some great tunes here.

From: Date: February 25, 2003 at 22:04
Good bluesy hard rock album for those who like Black Crowes or Ragging Slab. Don't mistake these guys for a hairband..... Bought this on a whim on 2-24-2003 and it rocks.

From: zach Date: May 25, 2003 at 17:34
I got this off ebay with a ton of rap/country/alternative cds in a lot i put it in my cd player yesterday to see what this sounded like and it was totally AWESOME I love it has some great catchy tunes the music does not overpower the vocals either which is cool!!!

From: Desslar Date: May 27, 2003 at 4:58
Decent Black Crowes/Quireboys kind of affair. Not extremely innovative, but better than I expected.

From: Date: June 27, 2003 at 13:04
Anyone have any idea what ever happened to Dennis (the singer)???

Consistent...not a filler on the disc. Just great catchy, melodic rock 'n' roll. Everything on it is tasteful and sounds like it should be there right down to the guitar solos. I bought this when it came out and I still listen to it regularly. You can probably get it real cheap too.

Damn good "el Cheapo" CD! Got this one offa eBay for $1.99 plus s/h, and am VERY glad I did.Good,bluesy hard rock that does indeed bring the Black Crowes to mind,but on various songs, I was also reminded of the Rock City Angels,Tora Tora,Junkyard, and even Drivin' n Cryin'.While there are some tracks that don't really jump up and grab me,as others have said, there's not really a bad song on this disc."Brand New Amerika" is GREAT. Go grab this one's a no-lose proposition!

From: PauloFernandes Date: November 18, 2003 at 8:48
Ditto - love this one too - recommended to anyone into Cry of Love/Black crowes etc - most of the songs are catchy and all of them are good - long live el-cheapo's

From: lisa Date: January 4, 2004 at 23:07
let me just say love them... espically the drummer! good people all the guys are still rocking out dennis is a producer now,andre bonter(drummer) in a band called pump5,and the other guy's? dennis was in a band called lefty so if your a real fan check them out!

From: Gelhead Date: January 18, 2004 at 19:41
Dennis Hill is in a band called lefty And actually produced my bands CD this past summer. My Band "The Gelheads" can be found at Frankie Dee

From: A Fan Date: January 19, 2004 at 20:42
You can find these guys still rockin So Cal. Dennis Hill plays in Lefty and produces other stuff Andre Bonter is drummer of pump5 @ go to the guestbook for show listings and dates.

From: old fan Date: January 22, 2004 at 6:19
Dennis is one of the most underrated singers in the 90's. Now in a band called Lefty, that was the last I heard. Rik Sanchez was in a band call The Lazy Stars with Jonny Capland. He's still a kick ass guitarist!

From: Bill Date: April 9, 2004 at 15:13
I saw these guys open up for The Arc Angels, I believe in 1991, and went out the next day to buy the disc. It is still one my favorites today. My 14 year old nephew is learning to play guitar, so I gave him a copy and told him, "This is Rock and Roll 101. These guys do it all. Learn it."

From: Sheila Date: October 1, 2004 at 11:31
I just picked this cd up...glad i did too! It is a really good, catchy album! Definately a great CD! I reccommend it!

From: Chad Date: October 1, 2004 at 21:59
I seen these guys open up for Bryan Adams in '92 and went immediately to the store the next day and pickup up the album. They were much more raw and bluesy in concert. This is a gem that no one knows about. If you like the Black Crowes and ZZ Top, you will dig these guys. I agree with the posts above, not a bad tune on the whole damn thing.

From: Misty Date: December 20, 2005 at 13:57
I won front row tickets to a Georgia Sattelites Making of a video in Knoxville Tenn. The Poorboys opened for them. After the concert my friend and I saw this guy walking down the road with long blonde hair so we ask him if he needed a ride turns out it was Dennis Hill. We talked and hung out the rest of the night. It was great fun and I have always wondered what happened to Dennis Hill. Dennis if you read this remember that game we played on paper. I still have it.

So many comments but no rating here? anyway, Ok HardRock album with a Southern edge, clean production, if you like Black Crowes or Cry of Love youŽll definately enjoy this one. "The Last Time" "No Real Emotion" and "Guilty" are good ones. 8/10

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 14, 2013 at 14:09
Kind of a more authentic/less contrived Tattoo Rodeo here, and less over-the-top vocally too (no yodeling). Basically, this is southern-rock for the hair-metal age, as rooted in the Stones as in Skynyrd. The big-name points of reference might be early Black Crowes, Cinderella (Heartbreak Station), Georgia Satellites (thanks for the story, Misty!),, or even somebody like Radio Active Cats. Not a bad disc, if you're into this kind of thing. "Brand New Amerika" was a minor radio hit, but I think my favorite song is 'Never That Easy."
