Just Can't Get Sick of It

"This album was made in 1996, way after Greg Kihn's heyday (such as it was). I can't even name 3 Greg Kihn songs that aren't on this record. So why has this CD never been out my of reach since somebody pushed it on me 10 years ago? Because I can't get enough of his weary voice & the lush but understated orchestral backing on Noa Noa & Horror Show. The title track is as poignant as John Fogerty's Long as I Can See the Light or the Kinks' Hollywood Boulevard. Speaking of which, Kihn's Waterloo Sunset may be the most underrated cover of the most underrated band of all time."

"I had not listened to Greg Kihn for years, but when I first heard this album I was blown away. This is a combination of acoustic songs in varying styles from blues to rock to ballads. Especially great are the title cut, Horrorshow;the Kinks song, Waterloo Sunset; and Trials, Troubles, Tribulations. This is a mature artist at his best, doing exactly the kind of material he wants without having to bend to any commercial pressures. One of my favorite albums of the 90s."
