"I heard the buzz on Marah a few months ago. I came to this very page a number of times to listen to the tracks, but I never really liked what I heard in the few seconds of air time that are afforded. However, I read too may great things about this band to pass it up any longer. Let me say, it is the first album I have been truly excited about in years. I have already bought 2 copies for friends of mine. The music really sort of shrugs off comparisons to other bands. If forced to make some, I would say they don't really sound like this, but they feel like it....Exile era Stones, The Faces, the Band.The vibe of these bands is there. If you are wavering like I did, please don't, you will be mad that you didn't have this CD to listen to months ago."
Marah is AMAZING!

"Well, I first got a hold of this CD in starkville Ms. about 4 years ago, and let me just say it rocked my socks off...Marah is every hometown band that I grew up listening to in Starkville. They're sound is unbelievable, it's everything from Bluegrass to rock and so much more. I suggest you buy this cd and let your friends know about this band. Also check out their oher CDs you wont be diapointed..."
One of the few

"This is one of the few rock albums lately to sound heartfelt, fun, smart, loose, and completely uncompromising. They are right with Wilco as the best rock bands in America. Much rootsier than "Kids In Philly", their more artistic follow up. If you like "Exile On Main Street"-era Stones (and what real music fan doesn't?) than you will love "Fever", "Formula, Cola, Dollar Draft", "Head On", "Limb", and most of the other songs here. It's not that these songs necessarily sound like that (although "Head On" would fit comfortably right after "Rip This Joint"), but they layer the instruments to make what I like to call a beautiful mess. The horns, banjos, bagpipes, pianos, and harmonicas add tremendous depth to the sound, as they all meld in with the guitars, bass, drums, and vocals. The songwriting is very good, if not as spectacular as on "Kids In Philly". "Firecracker" is a nice song but the lyrics may try too hard to project a 'downtrodden' singer. This album contains what I think is their best song, the above mentioned "Formula", which is ridiculously foot-tapping, but intellectual at the same time. Overall this album is not the stunning first listen that "Kids In Philly" is, maybe because it lacks the themetic unity so important on that album. However, after enough listens, the individual songs on "Cut the Crap" stand on their own, making this an album very much equal to it's successor. This is a band to watch. They treat their music as art, but go about creating it on this album with a alcohol tinged looseness missing from corporate rock. These songs have more heart and soul (not to mention brains) than the Goo Goo Dolls, Third Eye Blind, Matchbox 20, Limp Biscuit, and the countless other vapid bands that dominate radio these days combined. In the early nineties Nirvana kicked radio on it's ass. Maybe Marah will someday do the same."
