"Lost In Rock" (Prosthetic / Metal Blade; 2001)
Reviewed by Snidermann
To say that Canvas is a little weird is an understatement. The first time I spun this disc, I could not quite figure out what the hell was going on. After about three spins, however, I discovered that I really dug this band and was able to easily lose myself in its music.
The music of Canvas is a mixture of Tangerine Dream, Nirvana, Primus, Metallica and Dr. Demento. Hard to imagine that combo, isn't it? But it fits here. Just when you think you've got a handle on the music, something strange appears in an off-the-wall place. It keeps you guessing and I like that!
Canvas (from England) is bizarre, mysterious and down right peculiar. I can almost guarantee you've never heard anything like it. Simply a joy to experience.
Canvas is Gareth Brown, Karl Fieldhouse, Daniel Kearns, Andy Sutcliffe and John Sutcliffe.
A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
