Jff

compares favorably to Dixie Witch and Soundgarden. Recommended to doom and stoner fans who need more than monolithic pounding in their tunes

Great album cover!

EMUSIC-1967

I like this album. Very good rock and roll album. Nothing that will blow you away but very consistant!

Sounds like...

Re:Sasquach- Rattlesnake Flake. Has a good bottom to it. A guitar riff like "Jumpin' Jack Flash" by The Rolling Stones. Strong hard rock voice on the vocals. Loved the lead guitar part near the end. Cool tune!

The 'Squatch Rox!!!

Abyss

After getting their 2 albums, I saw these guys play at the Stoner Hands of Doom Festival in Mesa, AZ. They blew everybody away and just played balls-out, riff-heavy rock!!! One of my favorite bands. See them if they come to town.

Beavis & Butthead would approve

"Huh, huh-huh-huh. Yes! This rocks!" Definitely good stuff. Like the other reviews say, if you're a Soundgarden fan or you aquired your musical tastes during the grunge era, you're gonna like this, and probably a lot. Definitely worth the download.

What the Cornell?

Yes indeed, Sounds like Soundgarden. Great stuff, nice flashbacks to early nineties.

The cover caught my eye

VinnieRattolle

The cover looks to be a take-off of the opening credits of the "Planet of the Apes" TV series. As the last reviewer mentioned, the music is very reminiscent of Soundgarden and the early 90s grunge rock explosion. The downside to grunge was that it all started to sound alike, and that's the problem here -- for the most part, it's hard to tell one track from the next. Decent album for grunge lovers though.

good stuff

Pretty good. Reminds me of early Sound Garden. Some of the songs sound the same though.

They Say All Music Guide

It’s one thing for a power trio hailing from trendy L.A. to go consciously against the grain, embrace a musical genre as unfashionable as classic, retro-hard rock with stoner nuances, and call themselves Sasquatch, of all things. But when that band’s impressive first album handily puts contemporary efforts of most other, truly backwoods-living denizens (Bigfoot and human alike) to shame, well then the triple heaping of insult upon injury upon irony must have made for quite a few hard-to-swallow chicken-fried-steak dinners in the stoner rock wilderness. Even worse (for the competition, not the fans), Sasquatch have done it all again — and more — with their modestly titled second album, II. The first minor but essential change worth noting is how Sasquatch have done away with a few of their debut’s ’90s stoner rock vestiges (creepy spoken intros recited by characters from Deliverance, for one) — thus allowing II to sound and feel more like a timeless hard rock album, and free from subgenre associations in most every sense. But what truly sets Sasquatch apart from most competitors (and this was true for album number one, as well) is that they are obviously a group who write songs, not riffs which are later made up to look like songs. No doubt the result of an organic, in-rehearsal songwriting approach, this distinction is more important than one may initially think. After all, it’s the original process by which the founding hard rock fathers set about making albums back in the ’70s: sweating out tunes through serious wood-shedding in the rehearsal room, then performing them live (or semi-live) in analog studios — not with separate tracks assembled via Pro Tools instead of human hands (or Sasquatch paws!) The proof lies in the thick, delicious, Marshall Stack pudding of rollicking cuts like “Pleasure to Burn,” “Barrel of a Gun” (boasting a chorus you just have to sing along to), and “Seven Years to Saturn” (which contradicts its spacy title with one of the disc’s most grounded boogie licks), as well as when acoustic guitars are whipped out for comparatively quiet moments like “Nikki” and “Catalina.” And, fans of slower (and therefore even heavier) material are also given the chance to nod along to the gigantic power grooves of “The Judge” and “What Have You Done” — the album’s only true-blue stoner rock candidate, thanks to its chugging, Kyuss-like coda. In most every other respect, though, II is quite simply a great hard rock album, period. Impossible to pigeonhole so easily, and therefore all better for it. – Eduardo Rivadavia
