"Generation Sap" (Radioactive Records; 1999)cyclefly.jpg (9078 bytes)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Radioactive Records artist Cyclefly is an interesting combination of tight and interesting music combined with deep and dark lyrical content that is compelling, however I found the voice of the singer strangely irritating, too high pitched and falsely feminine for my taste. Don't get me wrong - I liked this band - they're obviously willing to put their asses on the line for their music. But something about the vocals here took away from the overall effectiveness of the record.

Cyclefly is Declan O’Shea vocals; Ciaran O’Shea guitar; Nono Presta guitar;  Christian Montagne, bass and Jean Michel Cavallo, drums

Rating Guide:

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.
