CD Reviews

One of my all time favorites
Daniel S. Steven | So Cal | 08/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd never fails to pick me up when I've got da blues...The over-all feel is breezy and light yet the musicianship is excellent. Top notch sound quality. Most tracks are instrumental lounge which is fine, though I wouldn't mind hearing a few more vocal tracks sung by Miss Lily Banquette -chanteuse extrordinaire. The masterpiece, of course, is Morticia making fine use of the harpsicord and well placed 'la la la la's'. Alright already reminds me a little of the Odd Couple theme on tv, and Solid State sounds like a cocktail party on a satellite orbiting Mars. I think this is every bit as good as I Swinger and I can't understand why other reviewers think otherwise. I only wish it wasn't so short. Combustible Edison came out of the lounge resurgence of the mid-90's but there was something very original and creative about their music. Positive fun. Impossible world was released sometime in '98 and that's the last I've heard from them. To bad...I'd really like to hear more!"
Schizophonic travel through time

"This was the first CE record I bought and I find it in many ways the best CE record. There are no weak tracks and the best ones are absolutely hilarious. Solid State and Short Double Latte are my favorites. If you want to travel back in time to the sunny days of your childhood or you want to get a glimpse of the carefree past or just happen to like the sweet nonsense of lounge music, I recommend this album."
Hey, hey, Lily!

"This was Combustible Edison second or third album, depending on if you count the Four Rooms Soundtrack or not. It is somewhat of a disappointment. Not to say that it's bad. It's good, but not to the standards of their wonderful first album. Still, fans of the lounge music revival of the 1990s will probably enjoy it."
