Crackout - This Is Really Neat (2001) Retail CD
Before This Is Really Neat, their debut album, Crackout already possessed some notoriety as the band who had a single called "You Dumb F***" played on UK daytime radio. They were also known as part of a new wave of British rock--including the likes of Vex Red and Lostprophets--reacting against the American jock-rock of Blink 182 and Limp Bizkit. It's worth noting, though, that, despite hailing from the exceptionally English town of Buckingham, Crackout are evidently huge fans of other forms of US music, in particular the metallic punk-pop of Husker Dü and Nirvana. But it's too simple to discardmore… Crackout as grunge wannabes. Their stop-start, loud-quiet-loud tactics, combined with singer Eagles' sense of listlessness and alienation (and his often very English accent) seems just as influenced by Blur's caustic "Song 2". And there's more in here. "Joey Lost His Mind" has a thunderous introduction that recalls Cozy Powell's "Dance with the Devil". "Volume" is more low-key, with a quietly chopping guitar. And "Empty Head" sees Eagles, over a menacing, picked guitar, conjure the restless spirit of Jerry Lee Lewis with the line "gonna kill me like a killer should". Though some songs lack character and form, This Is Really Neat is a promising beginning from a band with much passion. --Dominic Wills
