Been listening to this yesterday and today. It's very fucking good. A bit on the heavier side with a lot of the tracks, but I really dig it. But I do like some of the psycho bands that have a bit of that heavier edge.

Anyway...All On My Own, Label on the Bottle, I Wanna Get a Mohawk, Gettin My Kix, do stand out as well as their cover of Accelerator and gotta a good cover of Holiday In Cambodia! My favorite on their I think, at the moment, is Ain't Nowhere to go. Fucking ace song!

Worth pickin up most definately!!!!

K, I'm gonna write a review dammit!

I'll start by being perfectly honest. The first time I listened to the CD, I didn't like it all that much. I thought it was good, but for some reason it didn't reach out and grab me which is what I'm always hoping for, and usually I find myself disappointed.

Now I've figured out what was wrong! I think I may have had wax in my ears, because this is probably my favorite CD at the moment. I'm always looking for diversity in music, and musicianship, and clever lyrics. This cd has all of the above, all the way through.

The thing I like most is that it really reminds me of something that could have fit right in with the So. Cal punk movement of the 80's. I hear it and right away I know I'm listening to something made in California (and in a good way).

I don't have the track listings in front of me, so I cant tell you the song titles off the top of my head. The first track is explosive psychobilly though, so it hooks you right from there. Then it winds it's way through great neo rockabilly sounds with songs like The Way I Roll (unless it's called something else) punk done perfectly like on the DK cover "holiday in cambodia' which I personally like more than the original. There's also some slower grooving tunes on here, man really something for anyone with good tastes. I cant get enough of it.

My favorite track though, has got to be the last one (it may even be a bonus track, not sure) with the fucking drum solo. One of the things that always seems to lack in psychobilly, rockabilly, and punk is any emphasis on the drummer. Usually if the bass is fast enough, and the guitar can diddle it's way through, nobody gives a shit about the drums. I'm so sick of the typical "hey look I can count to four" approach to playing the drums. There is real skill throughout this album. And I'm really glad my son has become a big Rocketz fan now, because he's on his way to becoming a solid musician, and he can't go wrong listening to We Are The Rocketz.

Fucking hell Tony, you guys did a great job. Thank you.
