2CENTS

"Lost at Sea" (Atlantic; 2006)

Reviewed by Snidermann

 

I saw band 2Cents perform live at a club in Ventura, California in 2004 and the show blew me away. Not only can the band rock, they have fun doing it and that, in turn, makes the show fun to watch. 

Well, here it is now, 2006, and 2Cents has just released their CD entitled "Lost at Sea." I think one of the hardest things to do in music is to capture the same power in a studio recording that get at a live show. Well 2Cents does it on "Lost at Sea" and they do it well. 

As I was listening to this CD, I found myself thinking about the band's live performance and the similarities are impressive. The music is fresh, energetic and very well done. I frankly can't wait to see them again and now I think I'll slip on my headphones and blast some 2Cents on my iPod! 

One more quick note: Track #5 is entitled "A Song For Darrell Abbott," and it's a touching tribute to the great Dimebag Darrell of Pantera and Damageplan fame. 

2Cents: Eden Sumpussy; Adolf Oliver Nipple; Willis Dikfitinyomouf; Ron Smith.

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.
