Some of the best Rock n' Roll you have never heard

""Sins of Our Fathers", released in 1995, is Andy Prieboy's second (and, as of this writing, last) full length solo recording. I say solo because he fronted Wall of Voodoo for some time after Stan Ridgway left that band. Being unfamiliar with Andy's Wall of Voodoo work, I am in no position to comment on that material or how it compares to this disc. As somebody who has listened to "Sins of Our Fathers" (and it's predecessor, "Upon My Wicked Son") untold times, I am in a position to rave about this stuff.Another reviewer on this page compared the tunes on this disc to Gilbert and Sullivan and that is right on target - if Gilbert and Sullivan had composed rockers and ballads about junkies, losers, lovers and the decline of Western civilization! There is no doubt in my mind that Andy is one of the best and most erudite songwriters working today. How many lyric sheets have you seen with footnotes? Well, Andy graciously supplies us with notes here referencing such disparate topics as Alaric, the King of the Goths and the slang term "rube". The music of "Sins of Our Fathers" - as indicated above, a delightful mix of cabaret rock and ballads - will touch your heart ("When Your Heart Awakes", "When This Dream is Over"), move your feet ("How Would I Know Love Now?", "Robbing Her Own Room") and tickle your funny bone ("Psycho Ex", "Build a Better Garden", "Daddy Buy Baby a Boob Job"), often all at the same time!I own over 500 CDs of many musical styles and "Sins of Our Fathers" is one of the most played. Please take my word for it -this is good stuff!"

"Andy Prieboy is a amazing artist , This is an awsome album , you can currently get a few "legal" mp3'z from the website ( promo site for a book andy is involved in ) ... This album sort of has a tragic broadway show feel about it , I would say it is as good as the previous "upon my wicked son" album , I would not buy this album thinking your going to get more wall of voodoo sounding tracks , this is all on it's own , there is also an "ep" called montezuma was a man of faith , it has a few songs from the wicked son album and a cover of "whole lotta love" , I highly reccomend all three music works by andy , he's currently working on a broadway show based on the life of axl rose ( guns and roses ) it's due out next year , if a cd appears for that i think it will be worth a listen too , thanks for reading !!! simon :)"
It really grows on you!

"I read one of the reviewers saying this solo effort of Andy paled in comparison to his other solo effort. They then stated that it was the "Happy Planet" compared with the far superior "Seven Days In Sammystown." Well, you know what, you are wrong. I too once believed that "Happy Planet" was greatly inferior to "Seven Days.." However, after listening to "Happy Planet" more, I started to appreciate it more and more, I soon realized its greatness. Well, after listening to "Sins of Our Fathers" for the first time, I thought, ehhhhhhh. However, after repeated listenings, I have grown to appreciate it more and more. Great great album."
