Dr. Frank's healing power
Rob Schwartz | Newport Beach | 03/01/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A great album that equals any "Mr. T" effort--really funny lyrics and catchy melodies."
What every album should be

"To put it bluntly, Dr. Frank is a genious, probably so much so that the music buying public just cannot comprehend the man. His lyrics consist of genuine, mindboggling takes on girls, lonliness, girls, alcohol, and of course girls. Witty, smart and totally rock n roll.*** i had to revisit my review from nearly 2 years ago... and the verdict still stands... DR FRANK is a genious and this album rocks!***"
Good song writing is universal, regardless of genre

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Mr. T Experience's pop punk sound has had tremendous influence on music culture, but regardless of how well written and witty the songs were that trademark sound could get repetitive. Singer-song writer Dr. Frank became frustrated with the fact that all of the songs he had written for the Mr. T Experience's stellar album "Revenge is Sweet and So Are You" came out sounding essentially the same and opted to use a solo album as his chance to diversify his sound. He has truely succeeded on every level.The biggest difference between this and prior MTX albums is the lack of punk. About half of the songs draw from various rock influences sans the repetitive punk guitar, while the other half are basically accoustic. The electric songs are filled with the standard MTX wit we've come to expect (lyrics such as "My heart belongs to whom it may concern") but it is the accoustic tracks that really shine. In this stripped down format the songs have much more of an emotional impact. The contrast between light hearted love songs and folky tear-jerkers may seem jarring at first, but ultimately makes for a rewarding listening experience full of (often hilarious) highs and (universal)lows.In fact, the whole album runs essentially like a particularly diverse set played at a small coffee house venue; short, bitter-sweet, personal and highly entertaining. Show business as a reflection of life."
