Recalls the glory days of Alice in Chains. You've just gotten yourself a new fan." Peter Greenway, Pro Music Reviewer, Broadjam USA"The philosophy of Tenpenny Joke is deceptively simple - hit songs, and more of them." Damon Carrol, Triple R Radio"From the opening stereopanned hypnotic indian riffs, this album began to reel me in. Expertly executed performances from all. "She" - a great rock song sandwiched between the aforementioned 'indianisms' and a beautiful chamber orchestra finale! Then the straight-ahead riffing of "Sirens" gets serious. Comparisons to anyone do this band a disservice. "Sense", like "She" makes fine use of the stereo picture in its guitar and vocal work. Simple but highly effective. Great contemporary rock harmonies, just enough edge to the singer's vocals - which are inherently listenable. You get the feeling that this band's creative well runneth over. A truly great rock album, by anyone's standards." - Kevin Moore, Jamendo UK.Chart PositionBeing a limited independent release within Australia only, the album was never taken into account as part of the official chart system. It has however charted on various internet charts as most-downloaded album, album of the week, highest-rated new release etc. For instance She is one of the highest charting songs on independent music site Garageband.com, and overall the highest ranked Alternative Rock song on the website.Garageband.com Awards:Track of the Day on 1, Sep2005 in Alternative RockTrack of the Day on 16, Sep2005 in RockTrack Of The Week on 31, Jul2006 in Alternative RockTrack Of The Week on 28, Aug2006 in RockNo. 18 Best Guitars in Alternative Rock, all-timeNo. 19 Best Production in Alternative Rock, all-timeBest Male Vocals in Alternative Rock, week of 16, Oct2006Best Guitars in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Best Guitars in Alternative Rock, week of 29, Aug2005Best Guitars in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006Best Drums overall, week of 29, Aug2005Best Drums in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Best Drums in Alternative Rock, week of 29, Aug2005Best Drums in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006Best Programming in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Best Production in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Best Production in Alternative Rock, week of 29, Aug2005Best Production in Alternative Rock, week of 16, Oct2006Best Lyrics in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006Best Melody in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006Best Melody in Alternative Rock, week of 16, Oct2006Best Beat in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Best Beat in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006Most Original in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Most Original in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006 Rocking Track overall, week of 22, Aug2005Most Original in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006Rocking Track overall, week of 22, Aug2005Rocking Track in Alternative Rock, week of 22, Aug2005Rocking Track in Alternative Rock, week of 12, Sep2005Grooviest Rhythm in Alternative Rock, week of 9, Oct2006
