CD Reviews

Skip the silly debate; listen to the groovy music
Joe Sixpack -- Slipcue.com | ...in Middle America | 08/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Whether or not this band is "brilliant" is entirely besides the point... What the Beta Band are about on these early EPs is HAVING FUN. These are goofy, indulgent, purposefully repetitive psychedelic grooves, music to space out to and enjoy. The End. If that sounds good to you, pick this album up and see what you think. Leave the fanboy "they rock" vs. "they suck" debates to the teenagers, indie nerds and would-be giantkillers who have too much time on their hands and think they have to prove themselves everytime a popular record comes along. If listening to music is more important to you than being part of a "scene" then you might like this a lot."

"this album is considered to be the best of the beta band, and i can see why. this original sound and interesting lyrics make the long songs not long enough (average length of a song is about 6 minutes). i admit the middle EP (songs 5-8) are not the best but i love inner meet me and she's the one is pretty good. i admit you kind of have to be in a special mood to listen and appreciate them (some describe them as "boring") but being a mellow person i indulge myself in their nostalgic and kind of detached yet emotional sound. i would highly reccommend this CD to anyone who enjoys lying on their bedroom floor and listening to heart moving sounds."

"if you are planning on purchasing this cd used beware because nearly all the used copies are former promos, i'm just sayin'. i'd like to get the original record ep versions but they are expensive, don't believe me?, check ebay"
