HASH(0x950f9624) étoiles sur 5 One of the best debut CDs available 6 janvier 2003
Par wellwellwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
All 12 of the songs here are probably the 12 most underrated songs around. Local H's semi-popular release, As Good As Dead (thanks to "Bound For The Floor"), is what got this band going, but Ham Fisted stands as an excellent debut. Coming only years after Kurt Cobain's death and the fallout of Nirvana, many people were quick to label the H's music as `grunge'. And if that label fits any of their CDs, it fits this one. But this 2-member group brings their own cynical, smart sound to the table. Although this release may not be as good as their next three, this is still an exceptional album. Besides, it's good to see a band progress in their career rather than regress. It's so sad to see good bands come out with great debuts and then disappear gradually with latter releases. Since you probably know nothing about these tracks, here's a short overview:
1. Feed -- This is a simplistic song, lyrically, yet it really gets you pumped for the rest of the CD. The line `I don't need my ego fed / I just wanna feel I can trust' is repeated over and over. But it never becomes bothersome. Even though it doesn't rank in the top five on the album, it's acts as a delicious appetizer.
2. Cynic -- I think the title kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it? This track is a real change of pace from the first, and really shows the lyrical talents of Scott Lucas. It's a truly inspired song; and will easily become a favorite.
3. Mayonnaise And Malaise -- I suppose you could consider this one a single. The sound is more well-rounded than the previous two, which is probably why it stands out so much. This is my favorite song on the CD; and that also goes for a lot of other Local H fans.
4. User -- There's no question this is one of the coolest songs on Ham Fisted. It's also my second favorite. The irony that Scott brings to the song and it's crude edginess allow it to be so great. It makes my top 10 list of Local H songs as well (it'd be at about #9).
5. Manipulator -- This one is very similar to "Feed". The lyrics are short-lived, but still not weak. The manipulative lyric `I never said no / I never said I wouldn't lie to you' probably makes this my third favorite. I have never found a better song with so few words.
6. Bag Of Hammers -- It may take you a while to come to like this track; as that's how it went for me. The lyrics aren't as catchy as the others, but they're great nonetheless. Also, the CD cover features a bag of hammers. Go Figure.
7. Scott-Rock -- This song could've been a single; as it's rather user friendly. Its lyrics are very good, and a bit more personal than the previous` are. It's very easy to enjoy it; hence it is one of the best on the album.
8. Sports Bar -- Again, Local H uses some great emotion and suspicious lyrics. The song is over five and a half minutes and carries itself on and on. The stellar line `they're ripping my favorite song' always brings out a laugh; as it's both amusing and intelligent at the same time. It's most likely the fourth best track.
9. Chicago Fanphair `93 -- I have to say this is the weakest song on Ham Fisted. The opening music/lyrics don't really mix... pleasingly... but once it slows down for the chorus it becomes more enjoyable. The song's not horrible, but it's not great either.
10. Strict-9 -- `You're not asking questions / that I don't have answers for' is how this song starts. It really makes you think; and you have just over six minutes to do so. As with "Bag Of Hammers", this one has grown on me over time. I like it, but others may not.
11. Skid Marks -- I never really liked this song. Until I heard it live. If you think it's annoying (you may not understand the words), just listen to its sound. The numerous, subdued screams of `no! no! no! no!...' are awesome and, in the end, quite witty. This is certainly a hidden gem within the H-song library.
12. Grrrlfriend -- Up till now, Ham Fisted lacked a slow, melodic song. But with this lasting, epic masterpiece the album is complete. Even though it's only 1:27 long, it's easily one of my favorites. It's a drum-less piece; and again could be considered a hidden gem.
If you are one of those people who know Local H as the [infamous] `copasetic guys', this is a great chance to get to know them better (also get PUTC and HCTZ). As I've noted, this is not Local H's best album. But on my listmania list for the best all-time albums, Ham Fisted rests nicely at around #18 or so. The whole album is well-formed, pleasing, and near perfect. 11 of these 12 tracks are excellent; and even the one that's not is still good. Scott Lucas and drummer Joe Daniels really started something special with this unheard-of CD. If you like rock music, you'll love this album. And if you like Nirvana, you'll love this band. Don't overlook this.

HASH(0x950f9d80) étoiles sur 5 Stronger debut than you might expect! 20 septembre 2012
Par Ethan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
aah Local H. A band that can be considered a classic case of the slew Post-Nirvana Grunge wannabe bands, as is true of MANY 90s bands if you do not take the time to examine them all closely (as every artists deserves to be) and carefully.

To those familiar with The H's discography and history then you probably understand that the "One hit wonder" or "Nirvana Clone" or even the dreaded "Copasetic Guys" tags are not necessary here and should not apply.

Although if there is an H album that DOES qualify for a tag such as "Nirvana clone" then it would be this debut album "Ham Fisted"

Feed - Begins the album with a classic case of angsty, angry Grunge fury. It makes perfect sense to start the album in this way, however after repeated listens this track sure loses it's power and overall enjoyability. Fairly catchy but too repetitive to hold up to many repeated listens.

Cynic - Delivers what Feed hinted at. A great furious Rocker with a wonderful melody. Has a simple but very catchy riff and somewhat sing a long like vocals. A bit long for its style but a very angry "breakdown" in the middle keeps the song from being too monotonous

Mayonnaise and Malaise - The pop song of the album! Very catchy indeed and not as brutally angry as most songs on the album. How this song did not become a huge mid 90s success is beyond me. Possibly because of the extremely raw sound.

User - Similar to Cynic though much shorter. Very catchy song and once again the band is full of fury. At this point in most other mid-late 90s "Grunge" bands albums the songs would start to become more and more dull, does Local H suffer the same problem?

Manipulator - A bit of a "droner" this song kind of drags out with it's repetitive nature. 4 minutes of moaning and then yelling and screaming being repeated over and over. The song IS a grower though. The chorus is pretty catchy and after several listens the song should become more enjoyable. At this point though it would seem perhaps this album is along the lines of most other 90s Nirvana wannabees. Maybe just a bit better.

Bag of Hammers - The "Punk Rocker" of the album. A short, fast and not so sweet song that packs a punch. A good change of pace from the last song for sure.

Scott-Rock - A very great song and should come as a surprise to skeptical listeners. At this point on the album most bands have already placed all of their best songs on the first half and the second half (except maybe the last song) is reserved for more mediocre numbers. In this case the album is rejuvenated. This song has a beautiful melody and has a nice mood to it. Not angry, not sad, not happy. It conveys a mix of feelings and does so beautifully.

Sports Bar - Another "droner" type of song. This song is quite similar to Manipulator in ways but is far less repetitive and is catchier. This is a song that you want to come back to.

Chicago Fanphair '93 - This song is another favorite of mine. Starting out with a blast of fury and anger and then quickly transitioning to a soft and pretty melody that makes you want to groove a little. The song transitions between these two and then transitions into...

Strict-9 - Now this song isn't really connected to the last song but they flow together so well that sometimes I lose track of where I'm at on the album. The longest song on the album and is amazingly catchy. A nice section in the middle with strong bass and soft guitars gives a nice mood to the song.

Skid Marks - The Nirvana influence really shines here. Yet again the band is furious and shouts through this song. Scott Lucas also uses some vocal distortion so you have no clue what he is saying.

Grrrlfriend - How do you end an extremely brutal, heavy and angry album full of screaming and insanely distorted guitars? With a soft, sweet and short acoustic ballad of course! A very catchy little number that adds a nice finish to the album that wouldn't have been as good had it ended with another Rocker.

So what's the final conclusion? This album is superb! Not only that but it defies most mid - late 90s "Grunge" band stereotypes by having not only so many great songs, but the band is confident enough to put their best stuff on the second half of the album! Also, this is one of only 2 Local H albums not to be a concept album, yet the songs on the second half of the album tie together so well that you can already see they have a natural talent for this sort of thing.

Any fan of Nirvana looking for a similar band that are not flat out copy cats or sell outs, look here. Or just any fan of great Hard Rock!
HASH(0x950f9ea0) étoiles sur 5 Underated, Uncommon and Undeniable 25 avril 2004
Par Raymond Ward - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Words can't explain how I feel about this album. This is tied with Siamese Dream as my favorite album. But Ham Fisted is meatier and more muscular. I think they're underated because people seem to write them off as minions of Nirvana. Yes they get their influence from Nirvana but they have their own sound (completely their own). Feed starts it all of with a bombast of drums and yells. Scott really let's all his emotion out on this one. Cynic starts to get the vibe more refined, (but the guitars are still throbbing). This song has alot of feed back which I like and lays it all out on the table for you to take or leave. Mayonnaise and Malaise is the reason I bought this album and was all I needed to hear. While all the guitars are blaring, the melody in this song coasts you up and down like a rollercoaster. The beginning drum rolls of User tells you that this song is going to rock the way it wants to, period...and it does. The drum beats though out are very very good. Manipulator is a strange one at first, but is still very much consistant with the rest of the album. It's a sly rocker and will grow on you after repeated listens. Bag of Hammers is another one Scott lets loose on. The melody on this on is unbeleivable! Scott Rock is a very sweet ballad with grungy guitars. Sports Bar is more introspective but rocks especially toward the end. Chicao Fanphair has the best melody in the whole album. I like the way he takes the chorus and rocks it towards the end while keeping the same melody, (the Smashing Pumpkins use that formula alot). You would think the intensity would wan by now but it doen't and the spiteful Strict-9 proves it. It's kind of slow but the guitars are still way solid. Skid Marks is the hardest rocking one but ironically my least favorite, (get ALL your aggression out with that one). Grrrlfriend is the quietest song but oddly at the same time one of the grungiest. It has a quiet beauty to it. Boy, the grunge era has the best music!!!! (Sorry I didn't mean to use the "G" word).
