Fun, Weirdness, Whatever You Call It It's Great

"Okay first thing's first, this album (And this band) is somewhat of an acquired taste. If you like social commentary that's not preachy, great 4-part harmonies, and a bit of silliness in your music, read on.That being said, this is one of the most funny, yet intelligent, CDs you will ever find. There are hilarious comments on Rush Limbaugh (The Greatest Man in America), right wing politics (Big Fish, my personal favorite), daytime "talk shows", (Jenny Washington), work, (I Love My Boss) and gambling (The Ballad of Cedric Fruvous). There's also a cute, slightly Tom Lehrer-like science song (Entropy), and one silly, classic Fruvous song (Johhny Saucep'n). The only song I don't really like is Ash Hash, and even then I don't hate it strongly.Sounds too political and folky, you say? Wrong. In the wrong hands this would come off as phony or heavy-handed, but done by Fruvous they are light, snappy, and catchy as heck. (Just TRY to get Big Fish or Jenny Washington out of your head, and watch as they get hopelessly stuck in your brain.) The messages are subtle, and the harmonies are outstanding. It's also worth mentioning that they are about as non-conformist and non-corporate as you'll ever get- different, but not in a pretentious, we hate any thing mainstream way.So what are you waiting for? If you love Barenaked Ladies, They Might Be Giants, or possibly Weezer, try this for a fresh, tuneful change of pace."
My stars, this band is great.

"okay. so most who know me know of my "love me, love my incessant fruvous playing". some react more favorably than others. but even those who dread the endless spinning of a CD changer packed with fru find this album funny. in future friend/partner screenings, i plan to play this album for them. if they don't break into collapsing guffaws at least once, they don't get to be my friend.the political humorist in me is all over fruvous like a cheap suit. their kiss-offs to lecherous reactionaries are big, sloppy, wet mwwwwwwAHHs. they bring much needed laughter to an often humorlessly bleak political landscape. and if you can't beat 'em, it's time to, well, "score some boo". so buy this album. your inner child desperately needs a big noogie."
'B' contains the meaning of life!

"Moxy's got this great quality to their music...the ability for their CD's to completely ostracize the rest of my music from my CD-player, and use it as their personal funpark. Not that I mind. And in my Moxy collection, one CD stands out as diverse as the NY Yankees and as touching and witty as Jackie Mason...b! Utterly adorable! Starting off with 'I love my Boss,' each song proves to be a 3-minute nuggett of heaven, so delightfully packaged and set to music! The lyrics are 'da bomb...;' Moxy manages to tackle the ornery issues of boss hating, haute cuisine, and even staying politically charged, tackling the rather-untackable Rush Limbaugh, Candadian gambling, and the issue of Quebec separation. I've been a Moxy supporter for quite some time, and no other album makes me want to consistantly stand up and thank someone I'm alive and not deaf for this exquisite gem. If only they toured somewhere outside of Candada and upstate NY, goddamit! See Moxy! Live Moxy! And GET THIS ALBUM!"
