CD Reviews

Good Music.
Anthony Souza | 08/06/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The Smithereens' front man steps out and makes a solid solo debut that's not far from the Smthereens sound. The first and last song both stretch the pop boundaries a little and sound like nothing he (nor the band) has done before. The rest of the songs though, are the kinds of songs that would feel right at home on any Smithereens record. Sonny Fortune's saxaphone playing is the one deviation from that sound and it's excellent. His playing adds a jazz element to the music.The rythm section does a great job of backing him up and DiNizio plays all the guitar parts. His lyrics are, as usual, well-written and mature. This really is the next best thing to a Smithereens album and almost as good."
A great start to an excellent solo career.

"This album is now nine years old, and I have owned it since it's original release date, and have the two other incarnations/updated bonus track versions that have been released (one came with God Save The Smithereens Deluxe Edition, one I bought at a Smithereens show in 2005 with bonus tracks). This original edition from Velvel records has still got to be my favorite version. It has hints of the smithereens still, which is the rock/progressive/grunge flavor we grew to love since thier huge radio break through song "A Girl Like You". "Where I Am Going", "No Body But Me" and "Everyday World" are al semi-reminiscent of Smithereens collaberations. "A world apart" and "I'd rather have the blues" hint at the direction pat's solo went, now doing more contemporary, blues, and piano/vocal related music. This album could very well have been the next smithereens album at the time, but I believe it stands on it's own as an excellent direction for a solo career to start. Thank you Pat."
