H20

"Go" (MCA; 2001)

Reviewed by Keith Guillotine

Great album, 21st century punk metal band with a lot of energy! The entire CD doesn't slow down for one minute. It seems that every band out there has at least one or two ballads per album, but not these guys.

H20 originated in New York City about six years ago with singer Toby Morse hooking up with his childhood friend, guitarist Rusty Pistachio. With the help of producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More/The Replacements) the quintet released their fourth album, which is by far their best work.

"Go" is a chaotic blend of high speed riffs and screaming vocals that would get any fraternity party going.

There's also a bonus track on this CD (I like bonus tracks). It was a version of Madonna's "Like A Prayer," only this version was set in high gear and made to stimulate any posh pit.

H2O: Toby Morse - Lead Vocals; Rusty Pistachio - Guitar; Todd Morse (Toby's brother) - Guitar; Todd Friend - Drums; Adam Blake - Bass.

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.
