Fantastic Enemy is going to blow the fu**ing doors down town.  This is like old school rock/new age western, mixed in with a little eccentric outlaw rhythm.  Keep the music flowin, n good luck!

Wow, I finally got to listen to some clips from your album.  I've only before seen you live.  I love the studio work...amazing!  Great vocal special effects..I'm loving it.  :-)
Now, I just got to save up a little extra money to buy the CD (you know how it goes...bills, bills, bills, and then that pesty need for food - lol - so there goes a little more cash...just now working on getting a loan to buy the house I've been renting - brutal) But I'm going to get it as soon as I can.  Love you guys.

I just purchased 10 copies of this fantastic CD to distribute to family and friends - hard to believe this is such a young band, they have such maturity and depth!  Fantastic Enemy's Sex + Gunpowder - WOW - really hope to see more from this group!

Fantastic Enemy's first offering, Sex + Gunpowder, sounds like one hand clapping as the other one rips you apart.  The music is sometimes haunting, sometimes fierce, and sometimes, it moves you through the entire emotional gauntlet all at once.  The vocals on tracks such as "Prayer In Silence" and "Song for -T" moved me in such a way that I almost didn't know how to respond.  This music is many things, but above all, it is powerful and daring, like nothing I have heard in ages.  I feel honored to have bore witness to this amazing work of art before the world latches on to this talented ensemble.  Sex + Gunpowder is a very professional and strangely addictive work from a very fine band that still has everywhere to go, including up.

I was so impressed by Fantastic Enemy, I had a hard time believing this was their first venture into album-making.  How often do you find a group who have shunned the cookie-cutter image and managed to create great music in so many different styles?  It's rare- just like this compilation.  "Sex + Gunpowder" is entirely individualistic and versatile.  There is no one category this album belongs in, since it seems to have it all:  blues, funk, traditional and alternative rock, and a little pop.  These guys are confident enough to try just about anything, and it all works beautifully.  Vocalist Jammie Leigh has a very distinct voice - smoky and accented with an edge.
For me, the opening rift of INK conjures up the image of this grooving in the background during a '60's movie involving illicit drug use.  However interpreted, it sticks in your head for days.  My other favorites include Prayer in Silence, Sixteen, Gone, and Burn (wow, this one just grinds and makes you feel a little dirty - in a good way, of course!)  If Fantastic Enemy continues to exude this level of artistic conviction, future endeavors will earn them a spot among Texas' best.
