Unida's Coping With The Urban Coyote is John Garcia's second attempt after leaving Kyuss. Slo Burn was great, but with Unida the music sounded better and there was more progression in the songs. Thorn, Black Woman and the epic You Wish are really great songs.
If you're a guitarist, try to play Black Woman. It's real fun.

Unida's debut album Coping with the Urban Coyote marks a sharp musical turn for singer/songwriter/guitarist John Garcia, toward straight-ahead hard rock and away from his artier work in Kyuss and Slo Burn. Songs like "Thorn" and "Blackwoman" are loud, propulsive rock excursions, featuring Garcia's emotive, classic rock singing, and only the relatively gentle finale "You Wish" sees Unida vary from the tried-and-true hard rock formula.

3/4 of Unida is now House of Broken Promises. their new lp sounds great from what I've heard so far - available at the end of Sept.

Love this album... nothing beats their unreleased for me though. House of Broken Promises is very good, a bit more heavy/hard rock oriented.
