"How Can You Blame Me?" (Self-produced; 2001)
Reviewed by Snidermann
Every once in a while you run across a band that refuses to be labeled and that definitely marches to the beat of a different drummer. Sparrows Point is such a band. This is very unconventional music that rocks hard, but it is very hard to be categorized. That being said, they were nominated as Best Hard Rock band in San Francisco by the San Francisco Weekly.
Strong, well-conceived and thought-provoking lyrics combined with great, original songwriting, mixed with strange, unidentifiable sounds are commonplace with Sparrows Point ... And that's just part of this very unique package.
The Point also does a better than average rendition of Fleetwood Mac's classic "Tusk."
It is refreshing to hear such a good band that play music the way they want to with no compromise. I can't believe a major label hasn't snatched up this very talented band. I predict Sparrows Point are signed with a major label in 2002. They've got the originality, the charisma and, most importantly, the talent!
Sparrows Point is CIP vocals, Kenny Stoned guitar and vocals, True Margaret Euchre keyboards and vocals, Chris McGrew drums and Carter bass.

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.
