CD Reviews

Beatlesque Splendor
More M | Pittsburgh, PA USA | 05/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I stumbled upon this disc 2 years ago on a trip to Nashville, not aware of such a great pop scene in that town of country heroes. This disc has it all--intelligent boy/girl lyrics, hooks aplenty, melodies and harmonies to make your ears sticky, great uptempo as well as ballad numbers. The production is first-rate, as well it should be from Brad Jones. Kind of a homespun flavor to the disc, making you think that anyone could write some songs, record them in their basement, and make them be this good and sound this good. Yea, right..."
Mid 90's sleeper indeed

"Say what you will about this record, it has two of the greatest songs ever written on it: "Ophelia Float Away" and "She's looking through a window". I like all the other songs to varying degrees - "Mary's Moving Day" is a great one. Some of the rest is hit-and-miss with me. Don't expect Brad's genius production on this CD, this is mostly 4-track demos from before he was a bigshot producer. But honestly, the songs are great. Just depends on what you like."
She's Looking Out A Window
Kevin OConnor | Florida | 05/31/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If anything buy the cd for the last song, "She Looking Out A Window." I don't know how to put this into words, but this has got to be one of the best songs written in the last 15 years, and sadly enough it sits in obscurity. The rest of the album which consists of demos, is very listenable. But the prize in the ceral box is "She's Looking Out A Window." A song that encapsulates longing and regret so well it should be used as the definition in any dictionary in any language. Who hasn't looked back at old photographs when a relationship seemed invincible, only to have it crumble before their eyes? You have that moment forever, frozen in time, but you can't touch it, you can't feel it, you can only remember the smell of their hair, they way they looked when they slept next to you, the way they laughed, and how they cried. This song hits on all those emotions. Truly an amazing piece of music."
