CD Reviews

Excellent Garage Pop!
Mike Reed | 10/28/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Outrageous Cherry's 4th album is perhaps their best and most focused to date. Their sound is kinda like a hybrid between the velvet underground and the monkees with a bit of sonic youth's distortion and experimentation thrown in. whilst they don't reach the heights of, say, "pale frail lovely one" from their debut self-titled album (1994), they have stumbled upon a new found cocnsistency which makes this their best overall work. anyway, stand-out tracks are "georgie don't you know" and "where do i go when you dream?". if your into garage-psych or just good old-fashioned guitar pop, you must check this out."
Big hits, lots of misses

"This album is a tough one to sum up, but here goes: a few of the tracks here (specifically "Corruptable" and "Georgie Don't You Know") are power pop at its finest, reflecting the head-nodding finger-snapping anthems of the 60s through a fuzz filter. Unfortunately, the band seems to have attention-deficit disorder and wanders all over the board from song to song. As a result, many of the tracks here are lackluster. Nevertheless, I feel the good outweighs the bad -- just be prepared to skip past some tunes that come off as uninspired filler."
Outrageous Cherry - 'Out There In The Dark' (Del-Fi) 4 1/2

"Good 1999 release by Detroit's own pyschedelic popsters. About as good as the other two Outrageous Cherry CD's that I've made a part of my music collection, 'Book Of Spectral Projections' and 'Our Love Will Change The World' (see my reviews of both). With uptempo tracks like "Togetherness", "Corruptable" and "Tracy", this disc is hard to keep on the shelf that much. Was also sort of blown away by this CD's closer, the eleven minute head tripping "There's No Escape From The Infinite". Take it from me, IF you dig this particular genre, it rarely gets any better than this. A must-have."
