The Reptoids - Park a Tiger Review
by Greenmuse

.
Few things in life are as great and soul stirring as a good female fronted band, The Reptoids are a prime example of this. Since getting this CD about 4 or so days ago it has been all I've listened to(aside from some test listens to the latest sendings from TKO Records). I've listened to it while driving, I've listened to it while getting dressed, I've listened to it while playing Gran Turismo. etc etc, you get the idea. The Reptoids hail from Chicago and well frankly kick the proverbial s*** out of a lot of other bands out there. You can rest assured that The Reptoids will strip paint from your walls at 30 ft.

The vocals here are reminiscent of L7 or the Distillers(minus the VERY Courtney love-esque thing Brody has going on). In other words the vocalist(I want to say her name is Melissa, but I don't have the CD case on me at the moment so I can only go on memory)has the great sort of voice that just fits so well in a rock setting. The guitar work is top notch as well, a nice, tight 2 guitar attack. But like my hero, Joe Strummer said, "a band is only as good as its drummer". This drummer does an excellent job of keeping everything anchored well.

Then there is the bass player(the only male in the band). He simply tears it up on the bass. Hopefully this band will start touring out of the northern part of the country and start coming down to my neck of the woods. I bet they put a killer live show on.

My personal favorite track is "9 times". If anything just for the delivery of the opening verse. it has a nice arpeggiated intro followed by a short blast of cymbal, then they pop in with the verse. "This is war now, prepare for open fire. thermo nuclear acid rain, when the smoke clears, there'll be nothing left, your lives in a shallow grave".

Seriously. Bob Ross smiles on this band. Would you expect anything else from a band that named themselves after the hypothetical product of the evolution of humans if the dinosaurs didn't die?
