CD Reviews

On par with debut.
Craig Spinharney | LaVista, NE USA | 06/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While some might dismiss this as a poor sophomore effort, it charters new territory on some songs while staying true to some of the debut's tracks (Can't Let a Woman). "The Brunt" is no more off kilter than "Mama Frog" from the first. And to say that "Cowboy Star" or "Danse With Me George" is over the top also indicts the debut's "Drink Of Water".
It's an assortment for the ears to be sure and has enough songs that if combuned with some of the first album/CD's would make for a sonci killer!
Starting off with "And..." & rolling into the title track this is a good start. The closing "We Need You To" was on par with the final sone on their last album (Road Island) in the tune of "Fool Like Me".
Unfortunately after this second effort the prog was dropped for pop (although the 1-2 punch of "Art Beware" & "Apothecary" with it's blues then jazz motif is very tasty) on Life Beyond LA.
Well worth addition in a collection. To say that's it is a huge drop from the debut and holds less musicianship is put to rest with a listen to Danse, The Brunt, Can't Let A Woman, Cowboy Star, and the title track.

They did ressurect some of the magic with the final release, Road island but by then it was just as well they moved on.

BTW, "Harvey" is about a retarded elderly man who hung around the studio where the LP was recorded. It is his voice heard on the LP saying..."And my front brain, would not accept, my thanker(thinker)...see...no kid..""
Not truly remastered

"Beware - it says "original recording remastered", but what you receive when you order is the original CD release from last century. I tried ordering twice expecting to get the latest remasters (the second time going to great lengths explaining the situation), but was still sent the original CD release version, not the true "remaster". Amazon was great with the returns, but I'd go to the store if I was youze.
But 5 stars for the material."
A lot of genius lurking in this collection

"And..., Somewhere I've Never Traveled, Cowboy Star, The Brunt, Danse With Me George and Running Away are my favorites on this CD. The melodies are strong. The lyrics are thoughtful and clever. The execution of the material, the colorful production and crisp engineering are all top notch and painstakingly intricate. This work represents some of the most successful melding of progressive rock / pop with classical elements. It's especially enjoyable in headphones. To think these guys were in their early 20s when they created this... Amazing. If you enjoy this CD you will also enjoy their first one just as much. Brilliant and inspired."
