Listening to the album’s opening track “Misfit” is truly an indescribable feeling. It is pure 60s garage rock at its finest, with pounding guitar down strums, roaring bass fills, and wonderfully angst filled lyrics. Just as the listener is adjusting to the hard- hitting nature of the song he/she is hit even harder by a screaming guitar solo that is sure to send chills down the spine of anyone who is listening carefully. Wonderful as it is, this intense garage rock sound does not dominate the entire album. As a matter of a fact, the musical style of CQ is absolutely unpredictable, and cannot be pinned down. Songs like “You’re everything on Earth” are sweet and simple, featuring mainly a pretty guitar riff, and warm melody. Whereas songs like “Wish you were here with me today” are composed of driving bass-lines and reverb-filled guitar that sounds very reminiscent of early 60s surf rock. The album concludes with “Prison Song” a tune that begins with an inviting guitar and pretty lyrics like “Today the sun will shine for me again”. However, as the song continues the lyrics become more and more bizarre, and the musical tension starts build. Suddenly, singer Wally Tax softly speaks the words “While we walk the feeling in my stomach climbs up into my chest/ and I don’t know what it is, but it sure feels strange” and the listener is tossed into a great sea of musical madness. Great noise and chaos builds as Tax calmly speaks disturbing lyrics sure to make any listener squirm. The song climaxes in a flurry of noise, when suddenly the madness ends, and prettiness prevails. This 5 minute 38 second piece embodies all that is the genius of The Outsiders, and it is not short of brilliant.
