ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
To say the very least, there is a deep and buoyant sigh of relief when the avid music junky finds himself at the mercy of an unprocessed, to-the-point, authoritative rock band. To clarify, this does not include the polished and sometimes tarnished carbon copies sporting the latest suggested fashions, regenerating the previously recycled "alt," resonance. In a more accurate description, this points to a band grown more organically with roots planted firmly in the essentials of rock and roll. And if you can't remember the last time you saw a live band that seized your attention within the first 5 minutes of their set, then you haven't seen Stack Magic.

Well equipped with blatantly gritty guitar hooks and contagious grooves, Stack Magic is the perfect antidote for entertainment rigormortis. Nathan Spears leads with unaffected ease delivering ripe vocal quality, meat-and-potatoes guitar playing, and lyrical unpretentiousness. Rhythm guitarist, Mario Canido entangles fluently with the solid backbone style of bassist Royal Reed. Trigger wraps it up with solid "in the pocket" backbeats, which is, after all, the rock badge-of-honor.

When delving into their audio collection the "balls to the walls" type seeker might want to start with "Passion City Blues" or "Sage Brush," while the more relaxed listener may want to go with the mellow command of "Method Actor." Angsty patrons will most definitely find comfortable refuge in "Who I Am," and "No Face To My Faith," well, we'll just let that song speak for itself.

With a live show that derives from the arena rock era, ala Aerosmith, Zepplin, and the Stones, to the energy of U2, The Clash and Nirvana to the grit of Alice in Chains, STP, and Soundgarden they are a must see live act.

" A true shot..."
Stack Magic' music is straight-up rock. The songs are all catchy, professional and polished - they scream of experience. They are well-crafted slabs of pop rock with beautiful hooks. Sonically, the songs have a "feel good" tone to them, and I definitely hear an 80's influence (good 80's music, not hair metal). Nathan's voice is silky smooth, and all the guitar tones are juicy. Lets hear more, more, more.

Michael Sullivan

Heck, I defy any rock fan to not like Stackmagic.
In a twist on an old joke, which is appropriate for a Nashville-based band, Stackmagic play both kinds of music: rock and roll. Not power pop. Not roots rock. Not hard rock. Not alternative. Not low-fi. Rock and roll. It's such a simple formula but seemingly so difficult to get right that when bands actually pull it off, you're surprised. Guitar(s), drums, bass, and singer(s). It's that last one that causes so many bands to stumble. I'm the kind of listener that demands good singing because I want to hear my music rather than read it. It's why I'll never be a proper rock critic. No stumbling here, though, and rock critic or not I know what I like and I like Stackmagic. Heck, I defy any rock fan to not like Stackmagic. It's simply rock but I hear Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and a dash of Stone Temple Pilots in this album. How can that be a bad thing? Check out Keep On Runnin' and There Is No Face. Then get the album. How can you resist?

That's cool guys. Good job.
That's very good job guys. I want to see you in MTV and VH1. You should be there already.

It's rare for a band to be able to bridge musical eras so well without coming out sounding like one style is really the thrust with the other added to keep the fans awake. Not Stackmagic. Their hybrid of 70's and 80's classic rock mingling with modern rock gives you all generations of badass, badboy hits wrapped up in one solid, self-titled album. You're taken from a sound reminscent of the Eagles' "Life in the Fastlane" to echoes of southern rock to the Darkness and Foo Fighters in this grinding 12-track disc that you might some up simply with: grind, grit and glory.

I can't stop listening. I need help? My brain has been hijacked - By STACKMAGI
One of my co-workers had this CD sitting on his desk. It looked cool.. "STACKMAGIC" So I sneaked it out of his space and started listening to it in my headphones while I worked, this was this past Wednesday. I was floored.
When I first heard Keep On Runnin', I fell in love. So cool..the guitars sound so great. Then the vocals got me. So melodic, just perfect. And then Passion City Blues..wow. The progression is so tasty. It drove me crazy the rest of the day. The entire album got me good.
You guys have a great look too. I love the CD pictures. I'm having a hard time believing that you guys aren't all over the airwaves...radio, videos, everything. Your sound is fantastic, it's so good and real. I love the guitars..so catchy and straight forward at the same time. To me, that's magic. And Nathan, your singing is awesome. So much control, and you have an ultra cool sound. Just Like I Did is a perfect example to singers everywhere..what a great song. Sagebrush, what a great song! Recipe For Disaster is my favorite to play. Great song. I bought 3 CD's off of CD Baby. NO WAY am I burning/copying your amazing debut CD. I totally respect your music, and am so inspired by it. Totally and completely amazing album. I love discovering rare jewels like this. I've been emailing mp3's of some of your songs to my friends, the music junkies like me. They are so jealous that it was ME that found you. Thank you so much. your debut album has me completely hooked. My brain is devestated - I can think of hardly anything else. When I got home last night, I put on your guys' CD and played along to every song, ..for hours. I stopped around 11:00pm I think. I've been playing guitar since I was 14, and it felt so good playing along. And I am so madly in love with your debut. I'm inspired!

Crashing down
The album is great I knew you guys could do it we are all excited from the old days to now, your music has been in our lives forever lol

Believe the hype! This is the stuff!
Like many readers perusing reviews, I thought the reviews listed here were too good, and too numerous, to be true. But listening to the MP3's were persuasive, and the album is terrific; as solid, consistent, and crunchy as I've heard in a long time. If, like me, you're wondering why rock radio doesn't deliver the goods any more, you need this CD bad.

You guys are AMAZING!
You guys are AMAZING. CD is AWESOME! Wish you all the best.

Very cool...not a track we didn't like...my MOM even loved it!
This CD is a no brainer at a party...usually we all fight over the music. When we played Stack Magic, everyone rocked! Not one person asked us to turn it off...THAT'S a first!! "There Is No Face" was a real crowd pleaser!
