CD Reviews

Pop at its best and most original.
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If the best of pop is seemingly underground and indie for some strange reason these days, then dig down and find out where you can get Waterbugs and Beetles, the album. An album in the true Beatles sense where all the songs are singles and keepers. Dig it, because it's honest pop from the head and from the heart. And even the bawdy naughty parts of this album are totally cool. If you like Robin Hitchcock you'll like this album. If you ever liked the White Album, you'll dig this album. Very lyrical, very melodical...and not a stitch logical. The title tune alone will bug your ears out. Anton's been reviewed worldwide but we're very lucky to have him around Northern Calif. much of the time. Especially when he creates tunes like these on Waterbugs and Beetles. mmw"
Anton Barbeau Breaks Pop Conventions
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard "Waterbugs and Beetles" last January, when I bought it from Anton himself after a show. I was instantly hooked. I had to tape the album, listen to it in my truck about 8 hours a day, and then make all of my friends listen to and/or buy it. It's that good. It's got quite a bit of Beatles, some XTC, and a whole lot of Anton. It's vulgar, danceable, pensive, thought-provoking, sexy, weird, creepy and literate fun. Anton's that boy who's been reading lots and lots of really good books and sitting around his room playing the guitar all night. He rocks. He also makes you think. Plus, he's fun to listen to. What's not to love?"
