CD Reviews

Overlooked gem
nycbookreader | New York, NY United States | 07/02/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Despite his Nashiville roots, Bill Lloyd sits solidly in the pop camp. His music fits with Marshall Crenshaw, Peter Holsapple, Swag, Robbie Fulks, and the like. Stereo Review considers this release to be one of the greatest albums of all time. High price for a work that is barely noticed by the CD buying publc. The CD breaks no new ground but offers well crafted melodious pop with clever lyrics. I think it is a great listen."
A Power-Pop Masterpiece
nycbookreader | 08/24/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This power-pop masterpiece has been sorely overlooked and underrated. Lloyd, formerly of the unremarkable "new country" duo Foster & Lloyd, opted for jangly, sweetly melodic guitar pop with this record, and the result is simply stellar. It absolutely explodes with chiming Rickenbacker 12-string guitars, tight harmony vocals, tambourine- and maraca-laden choruses, unforgettable hooks, and various other power-pop pleasures. "I Went Electric," "Channeling The King," "Trampoline," and the aching "Forget About Us" are standouts, but the album is totally bereft of filler. (It even includes what may be the coolest "ghost track" in CD history.)"
Smart, savvy power-pop
A. Duralde | W. Hollywood, CA United States | 02/20/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Another great collection of smart, catchy, rockin' Bill Lloyd tunes -- and watch for the recurrent film references, there's quite a handful of them here.If you're a fan of the "Poptopia!" compilations or anything from Big Deal or Not Lame records, this is an artist for you. And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, you should still probably give Bill Lloyd a listen."
