Urge Overkill: "Eddie" King Roeser (vocals, bass); Nash Kato (guitar, vocals); Blackie O'Nassis (drums, vocals).
Recorded at Studio 4, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania between December 17, 1992 and January 9, 1993 and Lew Blum Midway Studios, Chicago, Illinois.
All songs written by Urge Overkill.
SATURATION is the major label debut of the Chicago-based Urge Overkill. There is a 20-minute silence following track 12 that concludes with an unlisted song.
Chicago rockers Urge Overkill hit upon a winning formula with SATURATION. They add slick production values and a more streamlined, accessible sound to an already high energy, crunch-guitar-heavy profile. Moreover, their adoration of '70s hard rock on the order of Kiss, Aerosmith, and Cheap Trick squeaks, creaks, and reeks all over this album like an old pair of leather pants. Interlocking dual-guitar riffs, anthemic choruses, backing "ooh"s and "aah"s, and arena-appropriate solos all conjure the warm, familiar specter of headbanging days of yore.
The group's pop sensibility saves it from mere cliche, however, as evidenced by the smooth, catchy hooks on "Bottle of Fur" and the album's crank-up-the-volume-worthy opener, "Sister Havana." With its mix of nostalgia-tinged classic rock elements ("Positive Bleeding" is definitely worthy of air guitar and a raised fist) and clever melodicism, SATURATION is one of the best albums of its kind.
