Underrated Band at its Peak
Matthew Parks | DURHAM, NC USA | 04/04/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Vinyl, along with its darker, edgier cousin Hi-Fi Sci-Fi, represents Dramarama at its creative peak. Vinyl plays like a tribute album to the rock of the late 60's and 70's--everything from the later-era Beatles to the 70's version of the Stones, from Kiss to more obscure acts like T. Rex, The New York Dolls, and Johnny Thunders. After an career of several uneven albums with some great songs ("Anthing, Anything, "Last Cigarette"), the band finally produced an album that's solid from beginning to end. Highlights include "Haven't Got a Clue," "Ain't It the Truth," and a cover of the Stones' B-side "Memo From Turner.""

"Dramarama should've been bigger than Nirvana. John Easedale, the prime mover of the band, is a great singer/songwriter. All of their albums are worth listening to. This one is one of their finest."

"This is the fourth of Dramarama's 6 cds (after Cinema Verite, Box Office Bomb, and Stuck In Wonderamaland, but before Hi-Fi Sci-Fi, and somewhere in there was their Bent Backed Tulips album). If you like Stuck In Wonderamaland, you'll like this. Though lacking a "Last Cigarette" or "Anything, Anything" type song, this cd has a couple of often overlooked gems.My favorite is "In Quiet Rooms". Anyone who has witnessed the college scene will identify with this song. Catchy tune, awfully emoting lyrics.One thing I particularly like about this album is the range of style. There are tunes to chill and ponder to like "Train Going Backwards" and "I'd Like to Volunteer" but there are also tunes to crank to volume to 10 (11 if you have a Spinal Tap stereo) like "Ain't It The Truth" and "I've Got Spies".No matter what style the song is you are always comforted in the fact that you experience supreme vocals, excellent lyrics, and masterful craftsmanship."
