Looking for more from Capital Sons!

"Swim the High Tide" is on my personal constant rotation list. This is a confident , ambitious, and well-recorded album put out by a Minneapolis-based band. Great songs with hooks that you will remember, Karl Obermeyer's powerful vocals, and smart lyrics. To me, the standouts are "World Gone Cold", "Amsterdam" (for some reason it thematically reminds me of "Norweigan Wood"), "Better Part of Me", and "Slackjaw". Excellent musicianship,with the lead guitar player reminding me of David Grisssom from the Joe Ely band (a blend of country, rock, with a bit of Tex/Mex). It's good to know that rock lives - seek out this band and you will find it.

I love this CD!

I really like this cd. After hearing it you will have these songs stuck in your head. Very pleasing and well written songs. Track 1 is my favorite but all the songs are rocking my stereo!

Classy Rock Music

I recently discovered this great Minneapolis band. I found their website and started checking out the tracks and was really surprised by what I heard. Fans of COUNTING CROWS, WALLFLOWERS, etc. will definitely want to hear this group. Everybody knows those long minnesota winters have a big effect on the music found there and Capital Sons is no exception to that fact. The tracks on this CD are well recorded, powerful (AMSTERDAM track especially) and most importantly REAL. I love The Wallflowers and The Counting Crows too and this is a blend of that style with perhaps a little dose of Replacements thrown in. My favorite track is Amsterdam which is just huge. It will rock your world. There are some very catchy tracks on this album and the first time I heard it I felt all warm and fuzzy. THAT good.
