I got this CD a few weeks ago and have listened to it several times all the way through. My first thought was that it is very good. Is it great? No, but it is a very entertaining CD with many good songs from rock to ballads. I have all but one of Saliva's CD's. That one being the very first release on the small label Red Urban Records. Saliva is a band with so much attitude and heart. The first time I heard Click, Click Boom, I was hooked. Southern Rock meets Hip Hop with a Bluesy twist. There is a lot of emotion in their music and their lyrics are strong and powerful. My favorite song is one that is close to my heart... Black Sheep. I have often felt as though I was the black sheep of my family and I can relate to the song and lyrics. One of their most popular singles is Always. There is a video of the song with the lyrics below. Check it out and give Saliva a try if you haven't heard much from them before. Great band and all their CD's are worth having in your collection!
