Too much modern rock here. they went away from the hard edge rock of the early albums. I know bands must grow but this direction is not for me, a pure headbanger

NO,NO NOOOO! This is the second BEST album done by Guardian, behind BUZZ. Favorite song:The water is fine Least favorite:Harder than it seems

From: Michael Davis Date: September 29, 2002 at 18:37
"What Does It Take" is the best song out of the bunch. It's not their best though, c'mon guys lets have another "Fire and Love" Album.

From: dusty Date: February 3, 2003 at 11:56
hey, how does Buzz sounds? Is it 80s or like bottle rocket?

From: James Date: February 3, 2003 at 16:58
Buzz has much the same modern flavor as this but is a little darker on feel.

One of the absolute WORST albums ever recorded. Pure crap! Give me "Fire & Love" "First Watch" or "Miracle Mile" any day over this crappy modern rock turd. "Bottle Rocket", the song, has to be one of the most insipid songs I have ever heard. GAK!

From: Steve F. Date: February 10, 2003 at 2:39
Guardian gone grunge. I didn't listen to this more than twice. Sigh.

From: Jeremy Date: June 12, 2003 at 9:22
Lol. Comon Boys, this Album sought laziness on your behalf. Glad you had fun recording but I thought Musicians get better like a fine wine? I am greatful for the message of Spreading Jesus to the lost though. But...this Album was at the bottom of my list, actually it ranked down there with Daniel Amos!

From: Tyler Date: October 16, 2003 at 3:57
Well obviously on a site like this you guys aren't going to like this, but if you can be open minded and critique it for what it is...the musicianship, the songwriting, etc...then maybe you can appreciate it. This album is a spectacular album in the alternative "Brit rock" vein. Open your minds people. Tony's solos are still there, just more creative. Your average slacker band couldn't play this stuff.

From: Scott Date: January 7, 2004 at 13:09
TYLER- "Open your minds...then maybe you can appreciate it. This album is a spectacular album in the alternative "Brit rock" vein." GIVE ME A BREAK!!! The title track alone is enough to make any rock fan puke! The songwriting is cheesy. You really had to try hard to like this one to call it "spectacular." No one needs to open their mind to utter rubbish. Seems to me only hardcore devotees of the band can appreciate this one.

From: headbanger4life Date: January 4, 2006 at 1:56
They went for a more modern/mainstream sound here. I really didn't like it before but it's grown on me since then and I actually like more with every spin. Don't go expecting "Fire And Love" era on this one.

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 20, 2010 at 8:30
Good God, how the mighty have fallen..is this really the same band that released such butt-kicking hard rock albums as "Fire & Love" and "Miracle Mile"? There are a few OK-ish songs like "Hell to Pay," "Fear the Auctioneer," and "Salvation," but other than that, this is some truly awful alternative/grunge garbage that should be placed in a rocket ship and blasted into the deepest, darkest, coldest corner of outer space so that it can never pollute anyone's ears ever again.
