Just what I was looking for!
One of the best bands I've heard!

Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles


Sittin' Idol scored 9/10 with their debut, back in issue #60. After a string of shows opening for Damageplan (R.I.P Dime) these Calgary natives have returned with disc number two, full of venturesome, catchy modern rock akin to Shinedown, who SI have also opened for. Dynamic song structures, potent vocals and a unique flair that becomes addictive: what more can you ask for? "The Current" and "Falling Apart" showcase the band's affection for Tool while and excellent cover of Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", situated in the middle of the album, finely displays the musical professionalism possessed by these up and comers.

Metal Observer


In 2002, when I reviewed the self-titled SITTIN’ IDOL CD, the band had been my first musical contact to my now-hometown Calgary. Now I have their second strike with “Gallery” and they almost seamlessly pick up, where they had left off with the debut and anno 2005 SITTIN’ IDOL still are as far away from a polished high gloss production as Lemmy is from a glass of milk, which is good, because this somewhat dirty sound fits the earthy music almost perfectly!



Founded in 1997 the band had the luck to tour throughout North America with DROWNING POOL and none other than DAMAGEPLAN last year and this won experience shows in the new compositions, as they have made a step forward compared to the debut. From the opening “Stray” on they grab the bull by the horns (or a bit further south ;) and sets out to conquer the world with fat groove and a certain Stoner attitude, complete with the nicely unpolished vocals of Scott Lennox.



And they manage to deliver an album of very consistent quality, which also forms a very tight unit, which should find very open ears among fans of this style. And they don’t make the mistake of playing on in the same speed all the time, no, “Whole Lotta Nothin“ surprises with at times driving double-bass and thundering riffs, which is a nice change of pace. Upon the first listen of the right following song I thought that it sounded a lot like PINK FLOYD and see there – “Shine On You Crazy Diamond“ indeed is an excellent version of the classic, very well implemented into the band sound, I don’t think I have ever heard PINK FLOYD so rough, damn good!



As influences I still can detect some CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, some KYUSS and an own touch and even though SITTIN’ IDOL’s style normally is not exactly my cup of tea, this album with time grew on me a lot and if you drive down the highway (or any other street) on a sunny day, with open windows, then “Gallery” fits right into your CD player!
