They Kept Getting Better...
05/08/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I reviewed their first album, Rosemary, so I thought I'd move on to their second album. Dillon Fence was one of those bands that just kept getting better with every release. This one is a pretty great departure from the sweet pure pop of Rosemary. The guys kept the pop sound but turned up the amps and really loosened up quite a bit. The best track is probably the first one, the hypnotic "Collapsis", which could easily pass for a Posies song. In fact, a lot of the songs here "sound" like other things you've heard, actually, although nothing here sounds derivative. "One Bad Habit" sounds likes "Lick"-era Lemonheads. "Any Other Way" is a soulful, bluesy number. All in all, not a perfect album but it definitely proves they're moving in the right direction. Their next (and, sadly, last) album, Living Room Scene, was an even GREATER jump, a genuinely fantastic album that convinced everyone who heard it that these guys were headed for great things."

"Outside In is chock full of great tunes, powerful guitars and a unique voice in Greg Humphries. There's only one or two misses on this CD, which says a lot in these days where any release with more than four good tunes is a rarity. I disagree with another reviewer here who says that their next CD was a leap forward - on the contrary, it was precisely why the band died a premature death. It just didn't have the spontanaeity of Outside In. Great, great record. Where is Humphries now?!?!?"
