CD Reviews

Ingenius (I swear i dont make this stuff up)
ANN M OCONNOR | West Hartford, CT United States | 04/22/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ok I suppose I am a bit biased because Zachary Smith is my father. I hope you all know he played lead guitar on this CD. I mean I grew up with this band. I was in the recording studo when probably some of this CD and "the tape of only linda" were recorded. I love this music. It has very interesting lyrics to analyze. Also Scott has an amazing voice. He has such a unique sound. Buy this album whoever hasn't."
Pop Masterpiece

"If you like musical and lyrical complexity along with your hooks, then this is the CD for you. Not everyone loves Scott Miller's work (Loud Family, like Game Theory before them, is 99% his creation), finding it too cerebral/pretentious or dissonant/experimental, but this is his most consistent and accessible work. Aimee Mann puts it in her top 5 all time. If this is your thing, the biggest problem is that it'll ruin you for all others. In my opinion, this is the apex of 20th Century alternative pop."
Outstanding musicality

"I first read about this album in 1993 in Stereo Review of all places. It wasn't until late in '94 that I finally got around to buying it. Woah. This is a must must have. Scott Miller is an ingenious songwriter and lyricist. His chord progressions always have an extra little *something*, some quirk or trick it seems. The wordplay is a whole lot of fun and Scott's much maligned voice is, in my opinion, the perfect accompaniment for the hyper-melodic nature of the songs. It's a great listen beginning to end, with the exception of the one song not written by Scott. 'Interbabe Concern' is a "better" album, but this one is my perennial favorite."
