Lesser Known - _Higher Levels_
(LKE Entertainment, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
There has always been something very likeable about the frenzied, hard rocking work of Windsor, Ontario act Lesser Known. I mean, I give them points just for being from my birthplace, but there is a bit more than that to all of this. I think the reason why I like the band is their ability to have melody mesh well with a cool groove. It doesn't work all the time, which is why I give this four-song EP somewhat low marks, but they do hit a stride and those are the ones worth mentioning. Opener "This New World" (there is also another version at the end of the EP) is good, but weak in my books compared to the hard-like feel of "Hell Ya!" and the ultra-rockin' "Underdog". I guess this EP is good as a segue between their last solid disc _Inner Beast_ and whatever else they have ready to roll in the future. At least these guys have their act together and are still going strong after some years. If they didn't have that going for them, I'd have sent them applications for McDonald's.
