CD Reviews

A Filler-Free Album!
Gregory Masciola | Carol Stream, IL USA | 12/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While I was driving one day, I heard a song on Sirius Radio's Underground Garage station that just blew me away. It was just an amazing song, and I just had to have it. That song was "Everyday Things". As soon as I got home, I did some serious web searching trying to find a copy of the CD that had this song. Unfortunately, I found that it was on an out-of-print CD that many people wanted at least $60 for! It was crazy; I loved the song so much and I just had to get my hands on a copy. Finally, I was able to get a copy on Ebay for $25, and it's a purchase I will never regret.
Sure, not every track on the disc deserves a 5-star rating, but none of it is filler. It's packed with great songs like "Everyday Things", "Now", "Zero Hour", "Great Big World", and "How Long Will It Take", just to name a few. If you've never heard this album, you don't know what you're missing. It's like hearing Paul Westerberg and Marshall Crenshaw combined. It's just a wonderful album of great music that should have been huge hits.
If you want it, you'll have to pay a bit more that you usually would, but it's worth it!"
Top-notch power pop w/bonus debut EP
hyperbolium | Earth, USA | 05/24/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After Peter Case left The Nerves (which included fellow power-popsters Paul Collins and Jack Lee) he went on to record several incredible power-pop records with The Plimsouls. This is perhaps the very best of the lot, and even more so for the CD's inclusion of the Plimsouls debut 12" EP as bonus tracks.Case's singing has never been more emphatic than here, and the songs and guitar-based pop backings display the very best of the back-to-rock 'n' roll side of late-70s/early-80s 'new wave'.Those who enjoy the music of Matthew Sweet, Big Star, and the like, should certainly have this disc in their collection."
Pop doesn't get much better than this!
Real Music-Not Rap | Washington USA | 10/21/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you had to compile a collection of must-have albums (CD's) from the early 80's (power pop's golden period, other than the early-mid sixties) this CD should be considered for one of your first purchases. Melody, churning guitars and hardy drumming come together in one potent package. "Now" is a typical lost classic, and one of the songs that belongs on your power pop compilation tapes. Great songs abound on the disc, and as a special bonus, it includes the EP "Zero Hour", which also contains another lost classic, "Great Big World", a perfect slice of pure pop bliss!"
