ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Horsehead is 1970s classic rock in all its time-honored, raised-lighter glory. The honky-tonk swagger of the Rolling Stones, the Southern-fried soul of Lynyrd Skynyrd and the pop sensibilities of Tom Petty are but some of the arena-rock influences that define the group. The slinky bravado of Know My Name struts like the Faces (featuring a blazing saxophone solo from Roger Carroll), while ballads "Hide Today" and "Say You Suffered" take their cues from the country rock sound of Gram Parsons. Each song will remind you of something you originally pumped your fist to and sang along with on the radio. Though its members wear their influences on their sleeves, Horsehead makes each inspiration its own. The sound is helped immensely by the stellar production and tight musicianship required in making radio-friendly tunes. Too bad radio wouldnt play this, because if you are a fan of classic rock, Horsehead has made the record of the year." Chris Bopst - Style Weekly

Horsehead, Record Of The Year (Emerald City Sounds). Despite the equine band name, Record Of The Year struts a lot more than it trots. For starters, there’s the vocal snarl of the opener, “Different Man”, followed by “Hide Today” and its “Sweet Virginia” take on country. “Too Bad” sports Nicky Hopkins-style piano between the grooves, and you’ll find Keef and Ronnie guitar slash almost everywhere. And “Six Foot Anna” could be “Angie” in southern roots-rock dress. Even the most disinterested reader has probably spotted a theme by now; it might have been more fitting for this Richmond, Virginia, quartet to have named itself Horse’s Head Soup. Making it all go down easy are the band’s road-tested chops — as displayed by frontman/songwriter Jon C. Brown and lead guitarist Kevin Inge, both late of psychedelic shouters Dragstrip Syndicate, and Silos/Gutterball/Cracker vet Bob Rupe — and their genuine, not to mention press-kit-professed, love for the Stones.
— Rick Cornell - No Depression
