Awesome. Just plain awesome. HWM, fresh off their "break-up," subsequent live album, split CD with Leatherface, split 7" with Six Going On Seven (which contains the best HWM song ever, in my opinion), and 2 new 7"s FINALLY puts out a new full-length album of all new material. Let me be the first .

Awesome. Just plain awesome. HWM, fresh off their "break-up," subsequent live album, split CD with Leatherface, split 7" with Six Going On Seven (which contains the best HWM song ever, in my opinion), and 2 new 7"s FINALLY puts out a new full-length album of all new material. Let me be the first to tell you, this rocks. These Gainesville, FL boys have their formula of "emotionally-charged hardcore" down to a tee (or is that just T?). From the opening chords of "Southeast First" to the tribal drums mixed into "Hit And Miss" and the slower, mellower "Driving Home" which is sure to become a crowd sing-along favorite, HWM has gotten their act together. After listening to the CD close to a dozen times (and I only bought it earlier tonight), I have yet to find a bad song. The CD only contains 11 tracks and doesn't even crack 35 minutes, but it doesn't matter. All that matters is that Hot Water Music is surely back, and better than ever. Don't believe me? Just buy the CD.

All I know is the first hwm song I heard was at the end of a gun. Or something like that. My friend will played it one day when I was with him and I thought it was awsome. I had heard the name before, Hot Water Music... That was the only song I had ever REALLY gotten into from hot water music. I got the mp3 and i listen to it lots. My score is for the only hot water music song I can say I really know.

I'll be seeing hwm with bouncing souls and the forgotten in a few days in toronto. So maybe then I will expand my scope.
