Three and a half stars!

"Although I have not seen the Seapods live nor have I heard any of their other recordings (both of which help one to appreciate a band's sound), I do enjoy popping in "Matinee Idols" from time to time. The 'Pods are fair songwriters - the transitions in their work are far from seamless, the lyrics lack coherence and color, and the melodies are not quite realized. They are much stronger within the jam, but even in the hottest jams on this CD it's clear that their chops, even when pushed to the maximum, fail to lift their music into the swirling, colorful jam-soup that endears lovers of jam bands to that music. All in all, a good effort, but, in my humble opinion, not worth the new price. If you can find this in a used CD store (good luck!) I would go that route."
Jam, Jam, Jam!

"I first heard the SeaPods on LA public radio station KPFK's show "The Music Never Stops." This is my first SeaPods CD and it just rocks like nothing else. The CD starts out jammin'and just gets better and better. Some of it is wacky, some of it is really thought-provoking. When was the last time you heard someone sing about John Henry? The SeaPods are so original! Be sure you send in the coupon inside the CD for the free live CD, too. It's almost as good as Matinee Idols."
