OK, think 2 parts Tesla (the lead singer sounds alot like Jeff Keith), 1 part Mr. Big (song structure in general), and 1 part funk ala Extreme, Ugly Kid Joe, or Sage. They bring together all of these influeneces, to come up with a disc, that should appeal to fans of any of the aforementioned bands. Well worth checking out when Kivel re-releases it....

The Kivel Records re-release of Straight Wired - BOHICA is out now under the new CD title of "Color My World". Well worth checking out if you're into any of the bands I mentioned in my earlier comments on this CD.

Been hearing alot of good things about this band. I just read an interview with the singer over at the loudestrock.com. Makes me want to get the cd even more, on top of your breif review above.Anyone here have it?

From: Erik Date: June 1, 2006 at 13:22
Whiplash describes it very well. Nothing to add to that. Actual tracklist is: Wasting Away, Gently ( AWESOME !!!), Hogh on You, Walk Alone (!), Color my World (!), I'm Away,, Those Days, Johnny, Do i do, Airplane, Carat Jam, Turn you on.

From: Erik Date: June 1, 2006 at 13:24
Ok album but nothing really stands out here for me. Apart from Gently, Walk Alone and Color my World.

From: juan carlos Date: April 18, 2008 at 0:08
Wow I didnīt expect too much from this album but i was totally wrong. For me itīs a mix of Tesla and Danger Danger with a touch of Extreme. Good singer/production/songs and no fillers. Really good Hardrock that grows on me. It deserves more comments.. 8.9/10

From: ninjapeter Date: May 20, 2008 at 3:53
This does nothing for me. Very boring and repetative. It sounds like the singer is argueing with someone all the time. There is not enough guitar other than rythym. I would not compare this band to any of the for-mentioned bands because this is just plain funk. It almost annoys me with it's monotiny. Stay away from this blunder.
