"The Murmurs second effort bombed... but still remains one of my favorite CDs. THE SOUND:
While their first CD relies on their acoustic guitars and beautiful vocal harmonies, this album sounds more like a country-rock album, with a full band (including Sheri and Sherry on bass and drums.)COMPARISON TO BLENDER:
This album is nearly identical to their next effort, Blender. However, Sleepless Commotion, a beautiful song about the murder of the artist's mother, was removed on Blender. And some very pop-oriented songs that don't appear on Pristine Smut, were added to Blender... which, in my opinion are kind of silly. (a song called "La Di Da.) I prefer this album to Blender, but unfortunately, it is out-of-print and hard to find. But if you can purchase it used, i HIGHLY reccommend it.THE COVER ART AND PHOTOS:
were apparantly the reason that the alnum got discontinued and re-released as Blender. The photo of an old woman with blue eyeshadow (one of the singers' grandmothers i've heard!) does not give any clues as to what kind of music the disc contains. The cover of Blender does more justice for Heather & Leisha's beauty. I honestly think that if the cover of Pristine Smut were a bit more attractive, the alnum would have done better... but still...Pristine Smut is a wonderful wonderful album. Any fan MUST have it... but i reccommend it as an introduction to the Murmurs as well."
A different style to the Murmurs

"This CD brings the Murmurs into a very different realm from their first. Mostly gone are the acoustic guitars and harmonizing vocals. Instead you find a fuller band with a drummer and base guitar player. Many of the songs have a hint of country through them.After the near perfection of their first CD, I was disappointed by this one. I get the feelings that Murmurs weren't happy with this CD either, since it ran for only a short period of time and many of the songs are repeated or reworked for their next album. Unless you feel a need to complete your set, I'd say hold back the money from this CD and put it towards their next CD, Blender, instead."
This CD is a must-have!

"This cd lends a much more mature sound to Murmurs than their earlier album. Almost every song is fantastic."
