CD Reviews

Suprisingly Engaging
Alf Kremer | Denver CO | 12/14/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This was one of a bunch of CD's that got lost in the alterno-shuffle of the mid-90's. Bands put out albums at such a rate that it was easy to miss good ones. This album is quite engaging - think of Garbage but generally poppier. The songwriting is never less than interesting, and the music and singing are very enjoyable. Highlights include the single "Sick & Beautiful" (with its strange list of metaphors for a love [?] affair), "Psychic Man" and "No Shame" (great couplet:"I like to dream about the Beatles/I also ponder issues like Pete Best"). Highly recommended to pop/rock and alternofans."
Still waiting

"Every year I make a point of digging around to see if this team of musicians has made any noise.... still nothing. This album is truly one of those great treasures, long overlooked, but loved dearly by those that have discovered it."
Unique Talent

"Artificial Joy Club is possibly the most talented group I've ever heard. No one can fully appreciate or even begin to grasp some of the stuff reached in their songs unless they listen to the cd at least 10 times. I'm a fan of good lyrics over good music. Both are supplied, but the lyrics aren't just good, they're incredible. They're supported with strong music, but not so as to distract you from the words. The only thing Artificial Joy Club is missing is another album."
