Review Summary: Excellent "emo-punk".

Think about the classic Dr. Seuss story Green Eggs and Ham. One guy, named Sam-I-Am, constantly tells another unnamed character to try the titular food. After remembering Samiam from the obscure music video VCR tapes called Rock Video Monthly, I became interested in them again, and thought this was to the liking of another user with similar tastes. Samiam is an "emo-punk" band that is fresh like Wendy's beef. Lead singer Jason's vocals wail and yell stories about alcoholism, arson, and typical emo topics. The song "Capsized" has Jason singing about the mistakes he made to a girl that didn't love him back, and thus he regrets what he did and "drinks himself to sleep." In the song "Stepson", he asks the listener to burn the aforementioned relative's house down, possibly because he was annoying. These guys should have been bigger than Green Day in my opinion, and hell, Green Day's drummer Tre Cool once was a Samiam member. "She's A Part Of Me" is a rousing song, and I air-drum to it in a very energetic manner. Overall, remember what Sam-I-Am's words were, and try this album out.

Yes they do. Those are my interpretations of Capsized and Stepson. I don't think Jason said what they were about.

Thanks. Some people think that Stepson is about child abuse. These guys are hard to find in CD shops, while others think they're bound to show up in bargain bins.

Band rules so much. Got their whole discog (save for their most recent album) on CD-R.
Definitely old school emo punk.

Have been binging on this album a lot lately, so good and underrated, glad I found out about this. "She's a Part of Me" is such a ridiculously good song. Like Jawbreaker at their peak or something. Just awesome.
