CD Reviews

"Apple" is a total joy from start to bleedin' finish!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Parasol label is a sign of quality you can generally trust when it comes to buying American power pop, and they've completely excelled themselves with this record. "Apple" is a total joy from start to bleedin' finish. There's a hint of Blondie in the mix, a taste of the Rezillos, a mere smidgen of the Go-Go's, but most importantly, every song here leaves a lasting impression. In fact it sounds like a greatest hits collection, everything here could be a single. Choosing a few standouts could prove difficult, but here goes. "Star 69" is wonderful, so's "Today Will Be Yesterday Tomorrow". "Sister Mary" is getting close to perfection, and "Hooked On The Girl" betters it. I give up. That's four out of the first five tracks and I've hardly started. All that's left for me to say, is make sure you get a chance to hear it somehow."
High energy. Excellent tunes. Great female lead singer.

""Star 69" will be stuck in your head for days. Six or seven great songs. Saw the band in Chicago. Great live too. Very impressive for a first album. Drummer is Brad Elvis from "Elvis Brothers.""
"The Apple Album" goes far beyond mere "power pop"
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The first time I heard "The Apple Album", the debut CD from Big Hello, I was at home reading an old punk fanzine from '79. The Big Hello disc was so appropriate, it wasn't even funny. At the beginning of the eighties, many of the new wave bands sounded like this, well before they decided disco wasn't such a bad idea. Big Hello are not 80's revivalists by any means (even though one of them was an Elvis Brother), and "The Apple Album" goes far beyond mere "power pop", but it still manages to evoke memories of the '79 - '82 era without sounding like a time capsule. Of special note are the vocals of Chloe F. Orwell, who can charm without being overtly precious or "cute"."
