"Long Walks on the Sanity Highwire" (Joetown; 1999)
Reviewed by Snidermann
This, the second release by Matts Altar, is a strange and twisted musical journey that is to be savored. The music is strong and deals a heavy dose of steady, excellent rock'n'roll combined with tight, together vocals to make Matt's Altar a treat for the ears. I found the whole listening experience fun and refreshing.
Matts Altar shows a mark of musical brilliance in most of their numbers, although I did find some of the songs a bit repetitive and sometimes overdone. Regardless, Matts Altar is one hell of a band and I can't wait to catch their act in L.A. later this year.
Matts Altar is John James, vocals; James Jaccobs, bass; Chris Tatalias, drums; Jimmy Jacobs, guitar.
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.
