Our status and position on 'The Charts' means little - all that matters in the end is the music.
“Good old Canada are back with yet another, though this act actually aren't a newly formed sensation - they originally joined forces in 1991, that same year from whence fellow Canadian melodic rock monsters Von Groove and Harem Scarem unleashed their debut cornerstones.

The breezy, deep voice of frontman Doug Weir smokes hot on top of it to tell you dishes including ‘I'm Down', ‘Gift Horse',‘Tomorrow', ‘If I Can't Have You', ‘Benjamin Suicide', ‘Who Cares' and ‘Dead Man's Shoes' are ready for serving with big toppings of barbecue sauce. Sturdy, slick, modern hard rock with an innocent alternative taste on top, Pigeon's five lads live an enviable all year long summer by the sounds of this album. Perhaps we ought to hop in the open-topped motor and make our way out”
