CD Reviews

Overlooked and underrated
R. Riis | NY | 06/03/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Despite only having two top 40 hits (Younger Girl & Mr. Dieingly Sad), the Critters were a talented (multiple lead singers, songwriters) band with a gift for melodic songs and pleasant harmonies. There isn't a bad track on this CD and several tracks could have given the Critters at least another top 40 hit if they'd survived the ravages of the draft and poor promotion. It may be out of print, but still shows up here and there and definitely worth picking up."
Good for a bunch of guys from Jersey suburbs.

"Excellent compilation of the Critters' Kapp recordings. Wish the original sequencing of the LP had been kept intact - I'd rather hear Don's smooth voice up front than Jimmy's whine. But it's great to have "Bad Misunderstanding"," Marryin' Kind of Love" & "Don't Let the Rain Fall Down On Me" gathered together, along with a few obscurities & alternate mixes. Some of the songwriting is pretty weak & the band can't decide if they want to be the Lovin' Spoonful, The Byrds or the Beatles, but maybe that's part of their charm. I hope their later recordings for Enoch Light's Project 3 label are rereleased.

All the Hits, but Too Much Filler

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Twenty songs is too much for a band that had only minor chart success, and the price of this CD is too much because of it. Nonetheless, the band had a few bright spots, especially "Mr. Dieingly Sad," "Younger Girl," and "Don't Let the Rain Fall Down on Me." Not essential, but an interesting portrait of a noteworthy group."
