One of the best power pop cds ever

"Despite some college radio play when this was released, the Odds were overlooked when they created this pop masterpiece. There is not a bad cut on the entire CD, and 'Someone Who's Cool' and 'Hurt Me' are simply two of the best and most interestingly recorded power pop songs you will find (note the horns at the end of 'Hurt Me'-- they didn't have to do that but it adds so much...). The Odds have quit the quest for stardom for the time being. Too bad. Buy this CD and mourn the loss. Their CD 'Good Weird Feeling' is excellent as well."

"This album is obviously close to slipping from the ranks of the available. Which is strangely appropriate if tragic. It has to be played a fair number of times to be fully appreciated. The 3 singles hopefully will keep you listening long enough to notice that there is brilliance elsewhere. Just try the 3 and 4 cuts, 'Hurt Me' and 'Heard You Wrong'. 'Hurt Me' is a racecar-fast workout of classic guitar riffs played off against inscrutable but amusing wordplay. 'Heard You Wrong' is a funny and bloodchilling portrait of a just-dumped guy lying in disbelief in bed. Also try the last 4 cuts in sequence, from the sweet 'Out Come Stars' to the raving 'At Your Word'. It's music for the brain delivered with haunting melody and killer pop-rock hooks. Don't let it die."
More to Odds than catchy neo-retro pop tunes!

"The only reason I'd give Nest only 4 stars is that I want to leave room at the top for Good Weird Feeling. Don't be fooled by all that "sounds like" stuff; everyone's influenced by the Beatles -- the Beatles defined the context within which almost all modern music must be considered. And look further than their radio singles. Fact is, Odds don't just blend in with today's multitude of fun pop-single-producing bands. They offer a rare combination of honesty, poignancy and intelligent, cutting sense of humour that makes listening carefully to the lyrics really worthwhile. Musically, Nest is strong, and I agree it's a great mood album. This album doesn't get tired. By the way, Odds absolutely kick live. It was their live show that prompted me to buy Good Weird Feeling, which is the album you should buy if you don't get Nest."
