"Command of the New Rock" (LunaSound; 2002)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
This hard-rocking Swedish quintet's album title is contradictory to the band's style since Generous Maria's sound has a lot more in common with Foghat than Linkin Park. Then again, maybe this tough-as-nails, whiskey- and weed-soaked rock'n'roll is new to all those serious Swedish metal dudes. Whatever the case, Generous Maria's sound is a combination of no nonsense 70's rock, snippets of smoke-filled stoner jams and ten ton balls to boot.
Fuzzy and warm, like your girlfriend's favorite sweater, "Command of the New Rock's" dirty groove is perfect to have a smoke, have some sex, and then chill out to on a lazy Saturday afternoon.

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.
