Of all the cockamamie excuses I ever heard

"Where has Jennifer Trynin been hiding since 1995, and why didn't anyone tell me to buy this CD? Perhaps I need to pick some new (and smarter) friends.Cockamamie's musical fury is unrelenting: I was afraid that the band was going to self-destruct (Knock Me Down). The CD roars through the first 4 cuts until I finally got a brief chance to catch my breath during the downbeat cut 5 (Snow). Jennifer assaults music with as much muscle (If I Had Anything To Say, Beg) as the Pretenders debut - she sounds likes she's on a collision course with a freight train. Eight of the 11 compositions rock out of control. On `Better Than Nothing" and `One Year Down' Jennifer delays the impending collision with a sprinkling of 50's doo-wop harmony.The title `Cockamamie' raised my curiosity and sent me searching for the dictionary: "RIDICULOUS, INCREDIBLE - of all the cockamamie excuses I ever heard." Despite her diminutive size, I'm certain that Jennifer is not a lady who tolerates lame excuses. `Too Bad You're Such A Loser" should be a wake-up call to guys who think that slouches are admirable. On `Knock Me Down' she seductively tempts "Come Knock Me Down." And she goes berserk about someone who tried to break into her apartment (Happier). Cockamamie is brazen and penetrating rock with just enough pop sensibility to make it a pleasure to swallow."
Refreshing album from a refreshing woman

"Without a doubt one of the best C.D.'s I've ever bought. I heard one of her songs on a compilation and ended up in search of this album. I stuck it in not knowing what to expect and got something well worth the money I put down. Kind of reminds me of Alanis Morrisette but she brings her angst off in a calmer way and with better music. She should be a lot more popular than she is."
Jennifer Trynin is one of the greatest female vocalists ever

"A haunting voice and incredible intensity make Jennifer Trynin one of my favorite artists. This album combines both powerful rock tunes like "Happier" with sad love ballads like "Do It Alone". Her sometimes angry and jaded lyrics remind me of Alanis Morissette, only with much more artistic talent."
