Out of tune and beautiful
(4 out of 5 stars)
"acetone gets lots of velvet underground comparisons, but this first record reminds me of neil young's zuma more than anything else. it's a hazy l.a. summertime swelter with low production values and lots of magic. lyrical references to the velvets, the wailers, and olivia newton john aren't witty, they just make you feel like you heard this record in a dream when you were a child. but you didn't. it's only a decade old. there's calculated genius, and then there's this kind, the zuma kind: put a few musical minds together and see what their influences create unconsciously. only groundbreaking records deserve 5 stars, but the first track alone, "come on", warrants at least 4. not groundbreaking, cindy is just beautiful."
Underrated.... and you ain't gonna get no more...

"I'm listening to "Don't Cry" from this album right now, and it continues to evoke memories I had of this album in 1993. This is absolutely beautiful stuff. If any of you lived in the Chicagoland area betwen 1993-1998 and caught the show JBTV on Channel 26, you will have an idea as to what the TrUe Alternative music of tha era was about... such as Vernon Yard recording artists the Verve and Acetone.I realize I haven't done much of a job explaining to you what this music sounds like, but let me break it down real clear. Picture the previous Velvets comparisons-- they're justified. Track one is a direct rip of "Oceans"... but not in a bad way! Acetone absorbs the influence and then transforms it into something incredible; completely f**king new. Track two "Pinch" tears all comparisons off of the formulated tapistry... and from there on it's anyone's game. If you're looking for something that reaches beyond today's gloss pop-punk, you're ready for Acetone. This is the best you can get for this particular genre... dare to buy it, you'll never turn back to your Sum 41 Cds again."
