Synopsis

Amazon.com
Like The Rembrandts with louder guitars and better record collections, this Maryland quartet delivers an album that's as fresh as their debut, Rapple Dapple. Piling on the "yeah, yeah, yeahs," the Huseman brothers keep well-crafted tunes like "Round and Round," "Love Songs," "Go Without You," and "Super Geek" short, sweet, and simple. Power-pop nostalgics will approve, though it's probably too wimpy and retro for the kids. --Jeff Bateman

Big Money Item

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This may be the best music deal on the internet.
I got this CD a few months ago and could not believe that I missed this one back in '95. Awesome power pop CD. You would be hard pressed to find a better collection of songs this good:
Love Songs, Go Without You, Oh Janine, Baby You Can't Get It Back, Punch Drunk, Invisible Threads, Yeah (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah), etc. If you're a sucker for this type of catchy pop music you won't be disappointed."
Great lost pop classic

"With all the hype received by other bands in the mid-90's and beyond such as Semisonic and Fountains of Wayne chalk up Greenberry Woods as one of the great lost bands of that style of power pop. Two cd's and they were gone. This was the second one that came out rather quickly after the first. Amazingly, its even better than the first.

This is one of those cd's where there are no bad songs. Its even rather difficult to list favorites. Its just that consistent. From "Yeah" to "Love Songs" to "Backstreet Driver" to "Super Geek" to "Parachute" to "The Final Song" and everything in between, they are all good. I mourn the loss of this kind of music. The spirit of The Raspberries and Badfiner live on."
