British Invasion bliss from great little Seattle band. Big Star is an apt comparison, especially so with the fact that Posies Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow have joined Alex Chilton as sidemen.--Jeff Bateman

Can't believe this album wasn't huge

"I remember hearing "Dream All Day" on the alternative station in Chicago back in 1993, but that's all. The other day I snagged this disc from the used CD store because I recognized that song's title, but this is the first time I've heard the rest of the tunes. Wow, where has this disc been hiding? This is sort of like dada meets T. Rex meets The Cars meets Big Star. Awesome, just awesome power pop, great hooks and melodies and harmonies. And the price is right. I wish I'd bought a new copy on Amazon instead of buying used -- the new is actually cheaper. Get this disc if you like smart, catchy power pop."

"I'm not going to do anything but throw my voice in with the chorus. Brass ring indie rock. If you miss the days of smart propulsive music this is where to go.Tight harmonies, intriguing lyrics, jagged melodies, and full-on band interaction. A masterful malange of 60s, 70s, and 80s guitar rock mixed and matched with no concern for the namecheck.My only regret is I waited so long to buy this. Get this ahead of the revival curve where in 2010 everyone admits that they liked this on VH-1.Another piece to support my theory that guitar rock was perfected in the early nineties."
