"As usual, confessing i've known Fred since 1986, when i saw him sing "Jennie Says" for the first time in public (as drummer in Dash Rip Rock, who you also ought check out).When Fred formed the Mouth, i was Right There -- this is an INCREDIBLE live band, and no CD has yet succeeded in capturing all of their power and drive... but all of their albums are worth owning.As their major label debut, it was obligatory to put "Jennie" on this album, it's third waxing that i can recall (on DRR's "Ace of Clubs", on CM's indie debut, "Word of Mouth" and here) -- it's still a painfully well-drawn portrait of Fred's time with a girl friend who didn't understand anything about him.Also making a second appearance (previously on their third indie, "It Means Escape") "How Do You Tell Someone" is a somewhat-different take on trying to End It."The Love of My Life", yet another love-gone-wrong song, is about the last stages of a relatioship with a woman who has become so intensely self-centered that "... she's not the love of my life anymore ..."The fourth really outstanding song on this one is rhythm guitarist Paul Sanchez's "Laughable", a bouncy ballad of indecision and self-disgust."
What makes a cd great?

"If the measure of a cd's greatness is the amount of time it spends in the player, this one's amazing. If the measure of its greatness is the ease with which its songs stick in the mind, this one's incredible. If the measure of its greatness is the memories that cling to the songs, this is one of the best cd's in the world.I'm hard-pressed to come up with anything to say about this album except for how much I love it. My favorite tracks are "How Do You Tell Someone?"--a song which has been one of my favorites for the last four years; "God Makes the Rain"; and "Laughable". The evocative and unexpected lyrics, the fullness of the music, and the buoyancy of the entire cd make it invaluable to me, and a great cd for anyone to own."
More than a CD

"Never in my life has a CD made such an impact in my life. Are You With Me?'s phenomenal musicianship and fun loving, emotional, and deep lyrics add an element to Cowboy Mouth that makes every song unforgettable. This CD was the first Cowboy Mouth CD that got me hooked and there are not enough words to describe how much this CD means to me. This CD will always be my all time favorite...I HIGHLY recommend it! Long live the Mouth!!"
