|It's fair to say America's Volume Dealer was COC's "sellout album," their answer to Metallica's Load, both stylistically and in its intent. Hell, the band as much as admitted it at the time, saying this would be the album to break them wide open commercially. Maybe if they had released this one in '96, but by 2000, it was the age of nu-metal. Even so "Congratulations Song" got some spins on radio. America's Volume Dealer is the band's mellowest, most laid-back release, still kinda heavy and kinda sludgy in places, but also with the strongest southern-rock influence yet. "Stare Too Long" (featuring Warren Haynes on slide guitar) could be a lost Skynyrd song almost. I actuallly enjoy this disc quite a lot, despite the weird, muffled production. I just dig the style, and they do it well. Best songs: "Congratulations Song," "Stare Too Long," "Diablo Blvd.," "Doouble Wide," 'Who's Got The Fire," "Gittin' It On."

|I read something the other day, Pepper Keenan praising John Custer's production skills, what a genius he is at getting the right sounds to match what the band hears in their heads, etc. I don't get it. Half the guitars on Wiseblood sounded like they were being played through a phone, and on America's Volume Dealer, they have a different, but no less weird sound (check the beginning of "Congratulations Song"). The drums sound like they're full of mud. There are times when I feel like maybe there's a heavy jacket or a pair of pants draped over my speakers. And then there's "Take What You Want," which Custer gets a co-write on, and which features a ridiculous slide-whistle sound effect, like in a cartoon when somebody throws something: "Phweeee!" My poit is, while I enjoy this album more than a lot of people do, I think its production holds it back, just like Wiseblood, and when I read that Custer is again producing the band's next album, I wince.
