CD Reviews

Uber Hipsters may not "Get" this one with NO TREND
D. Garcia | Los Angeles | 12/10/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Those who are looking for the latest greatest trendy hip sound that some under assistant west coast promo man is pushing are going to be disappointed with this one.

Those who think... maybe 4.5 stars...

This is a little story, about a misunderstood thoughtful guy with a creepy unthinking wife and the cute bike riding girl he finds and the creepy corporate business types who don't understand him and the aliens who pick him to be the person with whom they will first communicate because he's a good guy. Star Wars fans looking for silly grandiosity need not apply. The story is slowly fleshed out between the songs. The songs support the story. The songs are mostly well crafted "nice pop" tunes with some Jimi Hendrix thrown in for good measure. The Captain is not stupid. Many of us think he WAS the Damned. He knows about guys like Terry Riley too. There are some subtleties here.

Anyway like the title says it's about the "WORLD" of Geoffrey Brown, his viewpoint on the world and his fortune (the girl) or misfortunes (his wife, his bosses). Of course it's really Captain Sensible's view point that is being exposed here. Bicycles, environmentalism, anticorporate resistance, neighborhoods, good natured humor and beautiful good hearted normal girls who don't try to be uber hip.

I don't think the Captain thinks to much of the trendy trendy trendy Uber hip fringe so I don't really think he cares if they will like this or not. It's a modest overlooked jem in the Captain's discography. I suspect he likes it a lot although it didn't sell very well. I like it a lot."
