This Euphoria" is a really great album, and David Garza ia a truly talented artist.
David Garza made his major label debut in a big, brilliant way - compared to the almost genteel efforts on earlier albums like Eyes Wide Open, This Euphoria flat-out rocks. Call it a natural progression, call it what happens when there's big bucks to work with, but Garza came up with one of the best rock albums of the second half of the '90s.
Davíd Garza is an Austin-based, American singer-songwriter who infuses rock and pop with a Latin feel and whose vocal style draws comparisons to Freddie Mercury, Jeff Buckley, Donovan and Robert Plant.

Tuesday night at the Continental Club, David Garza steps onstage immaculately suave. Hair slicked backed, black sport coat and shirt unbuttoned to his chest, he surveys the crowd with his head hung down as he tunes his acoustic guitar. Garza signed to Atlantic, releasing This Euphoria and then Overdub in 2001. The compromise and glacial pace of the major label system chafed with Garza's DIY independence, and he lashed back in songs such as Overdub's "Say Baby": "If they ain't down with your dub lingo, if they don't hear no single, when you're trying to get on the radio, don't sweat when you quit yourself and go solo. If it coincides with your dream album project, great; if not, so what? At least it gets to be of use to people instead of just sitting there. It's an amazing time, because I don't feel like I'm part of the music industry at all," he continues enthusiastically.
