We Recommend - Showbread, 'Age Of Reptiles'

This is where a lot of Showbread fans realized that they weren't true Showbread fans.  So many times, when an artist or band changes their style/genre, fans jump off the bandwagon.  As sad as it is, it happens.  And with a band like Showbread, a group of musicians who don't want to stay in the same place with their music from album to album, this happens a lot.  But Showbread's sophomore Tooth & Nail album, Age of Reptiles, was a great album.  Admittedly, No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical does top it, but Age of Reptiles isn't really that much of a departure from Nihilism.  Sure, there's less screaming (or toned down to only a tiny part of one song), and there's a little more structure (even in the progression of the tracks), but it's still got well-written music and thoughtful and captivating lyrics.  It's more accessible (meaning it's able to reach a wider audience than before) but still maintains the raw rock sound, and you can jam out to it loud and proud in the car.  (And FYI, when I first got my CD player in my car, this was the first album I popped in as I left the Best Buy parking lot with a smile on my face). - Scott Fryberger
