Quick info...the Awful truth is actually the Galactic Cowboys, before that incarnation!

Actually, 2 of THE AWFUL TRUTH's members went on to be members of GALACTIC COWBOYS. Alan Doss (d) and Monty Colvin (b). The guitarist/vocalist for THE AWFUL TRUTH is MIA. That being said, this sounds NOTHING like GALACTIC COWBOYS. It's MUCH more ethereal and spacey and not as 'tongue in cheek'.

I had this album on two occasions. Once on cassette and on CD. I loved Circle And I really loved Mary. No Good Reason was good too.

The Awful Truth is a Progmetalband. The music is similar to that of King's X. They have the same melodic approach and the same type of singing. In fact, this album can easily stand comparison with the best stuff Pinnick & Co ever released. The King's X album that comes closest to 'The Awful Truth' is 'Dogman' I think. The sound is similar: heavy and groovy at times, although 'The Awful Truth' is a bit more melodic and ethereal.

I adore this cassette & STILL listen to it to this day! If I recall straight, this tape was given to me from someone in my old youth group when I was 18-19 yrs old. I luv 'No Good Reason'. GR8 band. Each member/musician brought alot of talent to the table & yeah this is coming from a huge KX & GC fan!

So I used to play with David after the breakup of The Awful Truth, it was In the Garden, of course we were not nearly as great as The Awful Truth... I also have this tape and we did many of those great songs. I still listen to it today, although the quality is pretty bad. I would love to get it on CD.

Great album. Every track is a classic. I have 2 copies on vinyl.

I love this cassette! Been listening to it since '89. Sure wish I had it on CD/MP3. What an awesome album.
