BW&BK review of Landmark
Man, I dig that technology has finally got to the point where the indie bands can throw out releases that sound totally pro: just dig the drum sound on this SITTIN' IDOL disc, and bask in the glory. This Calgary band is on album three, and it shows in their chops and songwriting skills. At first, those vocals are too post-grunge/modern Hetfield for my liking, but as far as that stuff goes, they are way less offensive than lots of bands. The sleazy, lazy, ZZ Top meets COC lite of 'I Am Consumption' by far beats out the more mopey, post-grunge sounds on here, although 'Unwound' is like one of those great ALICE IN CHAINS acoustic/depresso/sludge jams that are way better than I care to admit. 'The Mountain Walks' inexplicably reminds me of WARRANT or L.A. GUNS at their prime, doing some 'experimental ballad that's not about love and instead is about settlers' or something; oddly, it works, as well. I love how the album threatens to become forgettable mid-tier rock but always gets saved, KINGS OF THE SUN-style, by the manic and panicked drumming performance (see 'Slider', or any other song). The epic two-part 'Take Me Home' is a great near-closer, although the 51-minute run time starts to wear ya down right around then, too.

"Landmark" The Metal Review
Sittin’ Idol, formed in the mountains of Calgary, have been rockin’ stages all across Canada. They have come a long way with an entirely epic journey from partying with Damageplan in 2004 to releasing their latest endeavors with “Landmark”. The guys of Sittin’ Idol added bassist Greg Kristianson to the band, an amazing new addition to the line-up. Sittin’ Idol has toured with many influential and prominent bands, which has really helped to shape the band. From their formation in 1997 to where they are now, they have come to make their own unique sound, leaving audiences all across the board in awe of their constant and unpredictable songs. The new album “Landmark” shows that Sittin’ Idol has truly come a long way from playing in bars, to getting their name out there, surfacing with the utmost creative juices to start off 2013.

The album’s artwork is simple yet symbolic, showing a broken but strong tree with Sittin’ Idol’s logo across the trunk. The artwork in itself is very mysterious and full of wonder, leaving you to question what Sittin’ Idol has produced for your ears. “A Crutch Made of Stone” is their fifth track with heavy guitar riffs and hard rock melodies. The drumming is definitely up to beat and Scott’s vocals contain loads of Pearl Jam like influences.

The beginning of “Take My Time, Pt.1”, you get taken back in time to the grunge era yet again where Rick’s slow, but progressive guitar skills really build up to lead to a heavier and raw sound of pure rock and aggression. Their last track, “My Burden” is the one that really grasped my attention while I had their album on shuffle. With loads of Alice in Chains elements and a slight hint of thrash and grunge combined, you can really appreciate a sound that is all their own. An overwhelming feeling of elation washed over me while I listened to this entire album. The lyrics really make you think about everything and how everyone has their hardships to overcome, yet you make your own landmark and stay strong.

One thing that I really appreciated about this album is that throughout the entirety of the 50 plus minutes of solid music, there were certain points where there was the voice of a beautiful woman chanting back-up vocals. There was a lot of depth added because of these feminine vocal additions. You can hear loads of other influences in their music ranging from Tool to Pantera.

Sittin’ Idol has not disappointed new and old fans alike with the release of “Landmark”, grabbing more attention with each destination that they go to.

Landmark is the album that would have resulted if Sound Garden and Pantera had too much to drink one night in 1997, woke up the next morning and couldn’t quite remember what happened. Starting with “A Million Seeds Like Me” you get music as it should be, not synthed and tweeked until it’s unrecognizable. I think they saved the best track for last with “My Burden” a solid tune balancing intelligent lyrics with the kind of beat that sinks into you.

Landmark!
Awesome album by an Albertan band. Check it out if you like rock/hard rock. Well worth the listen!

Fantastic metal album. Heavy, moody, diverse and dynamic. And, oh yeah, did I mention HEAVY?! This album is waaaaay better than anything you'll hear on the radio today.
