This album is cool, to bad they didn't get any further.

From: TIM Date: April 25, 2002 at 10:27
They aren't bad, but I felt they needed a bit more polish.

From: TIM Date: May 15, 2002 at 15:11
They kind of remind me of Love/Hate with a hint of Black Crowes. There's some fun material in here.

From: Date: November 5, 2002 at 13:41
It's a shame if this band is not famous!All members of the band are great. I'm happy to be one of minority to have this cd!

From: David Date: November 15, 2002 at 22:44
TIM's spot on with his review again. This band have some really good ideas but just don't seem to finish it off. Definitely worth checking out, kind of like Four Horseman and The London Quireboys, they have that bluesy feel about them.

From: GREG Date: November 25, 2002 at 1:16
HEY,THE SINGER SINGS ON "THAT 70'S SHOW",HE'S GREAT.THIS GROUP SHOULDA BEEN BIG-

From: Gar Date: April 28, 2003 at 21:33
Pretty standard bluesy hard rock. A couple of the songs had an almost Bon Jovi-ish feel to them. If you're a fan of Cinderella's HEARTBREAK STATION, you might wanna check this out.

From: King Of All Date: May 27, 2003 at 18:52
This is AWSOME....I bought this cassette when it first came out..WOW. good..good stuff. The singer was later in "TRAIN" w/mark kendall of Great White.

From: peter Date: September 24, 2003 at 2:59
Always play this cd.. It's a great record. I think the singer and guitarist are back together..

From: Cotton C. Lover Date: September 30, 2003 at 0:09
I love this one. Almost reminds me of Dogtown Balladeers (need an original copy of that one, btw)

From: Rodrigo Freitag Date: November 5, 2003 at 12:14
This is one of the best bluesy hard rock band i've heard. They play pretty well, the record also is excellent and I wish they were on the road again. from South of Brazil, Rodrigo ( I could get this precious jewel here. )

From: KWFM.net Date: March 21, 2004 at 9:06
Simply a great album from a great "Strong" Rock'n'Roll band ! Todd GRIFFIN is now @ TRAIN STATION with Mark KENDALL (GREAT WHITE).

From: Andii Vamp Date: September 7, 2004 at 11:15
Still have my original cassette here. In a nutshell... simply an outstanding album! Stand out tracks include Love And War, Hell On Wheels and Medicine Man. A must have for any sleazy bluesy hard rockers out there.

From: Geoff Date: September 8, 2004 at 20:29
Like a better version of Sister Whiskey is what I'd call these guys. More solid musicianship, but the songs really aren't much better, IMO. If you're into bluesy rock, check it out. But I love Great White, don't like these guys at all so maybe not for everyone. Poor CD, IMO, but good at what they do.

From: LUCE Date: December 18, 2004 at 16:08
great band!great sound!great cd!!

From: Chad Date: December 27, 2004 at 23:56
This album suprised me alot! Very good bluesy rock. The first band that came to mind when I heard this one was The Scream. The lead singer does not really sound too much like Corabi but sings with the same heart and presense. While I have never seen this band live, my guess would be that they would put on a great show. The songs drip with rock and roll attitude. Good beer drinking music. This is very enjoyable rock. Recommended. I believe you should be able to get it pretty cheap too.

From: Peter Trast Date: July 1, 2005 at 1:14
I was very good friends with the bass player that went on the road with them, Gary Warnick. This band was MUCH better live. Gary and Brad (the drummer that went on the road) laid down a killer foundation for Bruce's amazing guitar work and Todd just has to be seen and heard in person to be fully appreciated. In twenty five years of going to concerts, they still rate in my top ten. I still have my original cassette! Similar in some ways to another favorite band of mine, Cry of Love.

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: January 11, 2006 at 14:24
Yet another tape I found cheap/sealed.Very Cool band...This thing Rocks hard is a nice bloozey way...Lots of cool songs here...Shame they didn't go farther....8/10

From: Rob Date: September 30, 2006 at 0:05
Love this CD!! The awesome "Down To The Wire" and "Hell On Wheels" are worth buying this CD alone!!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 10, 2011 at 21:27
FIrst time i heard "Down To The Wire" on the radio in '93, I thought it was awful. There seemed to be quite a few of these type of southern/bluesy hard-rock records coming out around that same time, from Cry of Love to Sister Whiskey, to Copperhead to Tora Tora's Wild America, and I really didn't have any appreciation for such at the time, although I do now. So I got hold of this disc recently. First thing I thought when I put it in was "pretend blues-rock, phony Zep meets Jackyl crap." But this is actually pretty good. Most of the above comparisons are pretty accurate (Sister WHiskey, Cinderella's Heartbreak Station). I don't really hear The Scream, but it's not surprising somebody mentioned them, since this is basically them with a new singer and a much bloozier sound. The southern feel comes off a bit affected, but the tunes are fairly enjoyable for the most part.

From: hair metal again Date: July 31, 2012 at 4:48
pretty good hard rock release by GRAVEYARD TRAIN back in 93!the band is solid,the vocals excellent but the songs should be more commercial at some moments and more memorable in order to have a better result!they remind me of BLACK EYED SUSAN i d say and i put them at the same level!"walkin the line","hell on wheels","down to the wire" and "spirits a movin " are the highlights of this ok piece of hard rock music!
