Common Children
Skywire



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 12 tracks: 49 minutes, 54 seconds
Street Date: March 18, 1996


Common Children's Skywire was their first, and best. It was raw, and perhaps people might think that it was because they weren't good musicians to begin with. Others will say that they just matured for their next record, as did their music. Either way, the edge that brought excitement to their music is no longer there in their later work. You can hear sparkles of it on later songs like "Pulse". But in general, they have softened up like so many others. This album is pretty darn good. Listen to "Throw me Over" and "Hate" for the edgiest material, but other gems such as "Wishing Well" will increase your respect for Skywire as a great album. That is all.

JFH Staff's Additional 2 Cents


Easily one of my favorite rock records of all time. Skywire is a raw nineties grunge record with artistic experimentation throughout. "Wishing Well," "Last Time Out," and the title track are especially highlights on this truly solid and memorable album. - 11/10/04, John DiBiase
