Sea of Green:Chemical Vacation

Used to be that Canadian rock was perfectly safe. At least that's what the skeptics would say. They'd argue that Triumph was just John Denver on testosterone and that Saga was just Rush with chest colds. And, to that end, there is a little bit of truth: All three of those bands did have an identifiable style that consistently pleased fans because, well, it all evolved very slowly. Sea of Green, however, are not a safe band, nor are they a power trio created in Ged's image. Instead, they're a hard rockin' integrity-havin' groupa guys who are creating downright memorable songs that never portend to have the answers (there's positive vibes here but no "Magic Power," that's for sure).

Don't let "Angry Scars," "Ashes To Dust," or "Darkness" fool you: These guys aren't spending their days stuck in their bellybuttons. It's good stuff and will appeal to your retro, rawkenroll sensibilities while allowing you to leave your brain on. Plus, you will still be able to throw some horns. Heavy, but not so much so that you'll have to loosen your belt and wind up falling asleep in front of the speakers.

This is the album before the album that'll break these guys wide.
