No truer is this then on 'Sweet Summertime', a slinky little number you'd expect to hear coming from some small, seedy back alley of a club in ol' New York. It's the same deal with the jazzy, fluctuating, sax heavy instrumental 'The Bottom', ...

Kill Van Kull have pulled together a wide range of instruments and sounds without the album coming off disjointed. It's quite well balanced and it seems to me they have covered every base. Obviously their influences go way beyond the usual rock band and for once I can use the word eclectic without any hesitation.
If you really like you're rock, and I mean being really open to all facets that make up our favourite style of music, then you'll be open to the ideas and sonic switches this packed album has to offer.

There is a lot of blues, funk, and soul influences, even some folk/bluegrass here and there. Hard rock, however, remains the band's foundation, and many of these songs are knockouts! "Hot Daze", "Through The Night", "Kick Em And Smile" (Had a bad day? Listen to this song!), "On The Run", "Out Of The Blue Sky"-All these songs pack a major whallop, with crunching power chords, a pounding beat, and some smokin' sax....This is one rockin' album, with no frills or any hints of monthly flavors or anything "trendy". These guys just let her rip! The guitar and sax work are especially good. I guess all those years of not being able to get started left the band with a lot of pent up aggression. Well, they've let it all out on this album!
