  • After four years of living in Los Angeles, it's no surprise that Sick Puppies sound more American than ever on TRI-POLAR. The Australian band always drew on U.S. angst rock for its influences, though, and that's even more obvious here than before, with plenty of Alice in Chains and Stabbing Westward influences apparent. "So What I Lied" has a guitar riff in the midsection typical of Tool, and in "White Balloons" singer Shimon Moore briefly adopts the stop-start cadence of Maynard Keenan. "Don't Walk Away" is a very typical example of the "I know I was wrong" genre that even includes a heartfelt moan of..."I know I was wrong." The downtrodden revenge fantasy "Master of the Universe" has a quirky slap bass intro and a sitar layered into the guitar solo; it's the album's highlight.

Unlike most people, I was not introduced to Sick Puppies by the "Free hugs" song; I was actually just listening to a local radio station and "You're Going Down" came on, it being the first single from "Tri-Polar". Needless to say, I cranked it up and immediately went to work finding out who this band was. And boy, I'm glad I did!

As "You're Going Down" got more airtime closer to the release of "Tri-Polar", I found myself becoming more and more addicted to that song, pretty much to the point I couldn't get out of my head. So doing some research and actually purchasing their first album, "Dressed Up As Life", I could hardly wait to see what these Australian rockers came up with.

From song one of the album, "War", Shimon Moore's infectious vocals dig deep, and they don't let go until the last note of "White Balloons". This is especially true in such songs as "Should've Known Better" and "Don't Walk Away" -- definately some fine pieces of work here! But as a whole, the entire album is a great listen. There really isn't a single song you need to skip. In fact, you'll probably find yourself hitting the repeat button once or twice!

So for someone who loves this kind of music and had never known about this band until now, I'd recomment this album, and especially this band to anyone who likes any kind of rock or grunge. For as much generic-rock that's out there, it's nice to know there's a few albums that still come out and are exceptional, if not to the point of being elite!
