It's a real pity...

"...that a band this good has only two albums out. On the one hand it makes it easy to own their complete works, but then there's so little to listen to!"Grand Opening" is indeed a grand album. There seems to be, in my opinion, a wider variety of songs here than on "Sacred Cow", and several songs like 'P. Sluff' and 'Bomb Fishing' stick in my head, begging to be hummed under my breath at work. 'L.A. Lujah' is a fun little impressionist tribute to the band's hometown, and the pseudo-Gregorian refrain underlying it is a nice touch. Overall this is a nifty little item that should be in the collections of people who like to listen to music outside of the mainstream, whatever that means. Check it out; it's certain you won't be disappointed."
A delightful discovery

"For years Geggy Tah has snoozed in the back of my brain, filed carelessly under "Novelty Band." This seemed logical to me, since they were the band who sang that classy little novelty song "Whoever You Are" (you remember-- the anti-road-rage anthem with the refrain "All I wanna do is to thank you...") Though that song held up to ad nauseum airplay far better than 99.9% of top-40s, I never bothered to look up their albums. Six years later, after stumbling over their Grand Opening album, I'm got the same goofy, delighted grin I had on my face the first time I heard "Whoever You Are." And it's *not* the kind of goofy grin you get after listening to a clever Weird Al parody or a self-consciously silly Crash Test Dummies song. Geggy Tah's songs are certainly childlike in their joy, but not in their structure. And I don't feel that they're cute just to be cute, or eclectic just to be eclectic. I get the distinct impression that the Misters Geggy & Tah feel what they sing -- that the exuberance of their music is a natural outgrowth of their love of life and music, rather than a desire to be precious or ponderous. Then again, maybe I'm hormonal, and am responding to Tommy Jordan's gentle, playful lyrics and vocals. Enough to charm the skin off mere mortals -- walks a delicate line between Peter Pan and Prince (w/o the profanity). I'd better stop before I gush myself into Geggy Tah Groupie Land -- then no one would take my review seriously! Final verdict: an intelligent, dizzy album full of new sounds and guilt-free elation. Check it out."
Not just any revolutionary pop funk adventure!

"This album is the freshest and funnest thing i've heard in years, but it's not "novelty" music - it's geniune genius. Completely unlike anything you've heard before, but somehow more honest and natural than most of what's out there. Grand Opening weaves its own outlandish textures of tasty grooves, beautiful melodies and clever lyrics, resulting in a mix that is simultaneously warm, personal, funny and deep.... and musically awesome. Put on the headphones to get the nuances, and crank up the stereo to get the grooves.Did i mention that it's fun? It has to be said again: it's a really fun album. Gets stuck in your head for days and keeps you happy. It's simply delicious. Can you tell i like it? i'm in love!"
