Something for Every Mood
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In the mood for some deconstucted pop a la Beck? Try the opening track "Don't Get Smart." Looking for something to wash all of your troubles away? Try the lush and inspiring "Jumblies." Feeling pissed at the world? Pop in the alt rock anthem "Cheat to Lose" and you'll feel instantly vindicated. Looking for a quick "pick me up"? "Big Whoop" will make you feel like a kid again. Oh yeah, Jim's Big Ego has got you covered. Don't let the title fool you: This is smart music for smart people. In case you were wondering, an ECD is an audio CD that has multimedia content that you can watch on your computer. (Don't worry, the music will play normally on any CD player.) It's got games, bonus songs, and other fun things all presented in a very grabbing style. It's kind of like a rainy day activity book for adults."
One of the Year's Best
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Brilliant, eccentric, funky singer-songwriter Jim Infantino has made his best album ever, which is occasion to celebrate. More than on his previous albums, which all had great moments in between darker ones, "Don't Get Smart" is chock full of memorable melodies, striking images and more of Infantino's witty, biting commentary on the world around him. He comes across like a bratty Beastie Boy on "This Message," a boasting grunge-rocker on "Ahead of the Curve," an ennui-laden funk-rocker on "Ambition," and a gentle children's storyteller on "Jumblies." And after what he does with it, Simon and Garfunkel's "Feelin' Groovy" will never be the same. One of the year's best."
Don't Get Smart
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jim Infantino has a secret---he's a 9 year old who placed himself in a state of suspended animation until his body was 2 decades older so he could tell the truth without being made to stay after school or having his butt kicked by the local bullies. On Jim's 4th and latest album, "DON'T GET SMART", the singer/songwriter once again locks, loads and fires his latest beefs. You could almost call some of the album spoken word but that would deny its intuitive musicality---after all, Jim includes a thrashy cover of "Feelin' Groovy", a staple of his live act for years. Trust me, though---this guy may have facial hair and a grown up body and can drive but I know he has a sandbox in his bedroom and a swing behind his house. BEST BETS: "Jumblies", "Ugly People", "Punk Junkies From New York", "Feelin' Groovy".Josh Max- NYC"
