This is an awesome album. I mean, as if the fantastic band name wasn't enough, the Ass Ponys are great songwriters. They know how to draw the listener in, and they know when to fuck with you. Their stories of middle-Americana can be depressing, but they're also wistful and true. Its all the best of alt-country, which can definitely be a lame genre at times, but not here. Grungy, poppy, heartfelt. Plus its fun too, can't overlook that part. My personal favorites are Grim, Banlon Shirt, and Earth to Grandma.

The most unknown great band in America

"Ass Ponys are not for the timid fan of easy-listening pop. This is brilliantly written, musically and lyrically challenging, thoroughly American music. It's quirky yet very grounded, playful while exploring the light and dark of life with eyes wide open. The Ponys deserve to be thought of in the same way that Neil Young, Paul Westerberg, Steve Earle, and Lucinda Williams are...yep, it's that strong. And don't stop with Electric Rock Music. The Known Universe and Lohio are equally wonderful. Try listening to "Kung Fu Reference" from Lohio and see if you can name another song that wraps such a poignant story, told so poetically and sung and played so beautifully, inside such a strong melody. Chuck, please write more. Ponys, we love ya."

"There is not a bad song on here. Be sure to pay attention to the lyrics after you calm down from the eclectic sound of this band... And don't forget to pick up "The Known Universe" which is possibly even better than this release!"
