If you like the Rembrandts, then you will love this cd. I can listen to this all the way through, without skipping any songs...

"most of the uneducated among us tend to snicker at the mention of the rembrandt's. "oh, that friends song" so sad that they will never know what they are missing. those of us in the minority have relished our treasures for years. i was introduced to the rembrandts by my high school girlfriend. i understand if my opinions on this band are now considered colored by the memories i associate with them. but seperate from all of that, the first record knocked me out, and does to this day. with the deserved success of "just the way it is ,baby", when it came time to record the follow up, i think there was more of a budget, more time, etc. the culmination is as close to a perfect pop record as has been created since the beatles. i can list a handful of records i can play top to bottom without wanting to flip past at least one song. this is one of them. the thing that gets me about most good pop music is how deceptively simple it sounds. then you grab a guitar and try to play along and you realize the amount of craft that is put into the art. bottom line. the songs are great and varied, the performances are inspired, the record sounds great. especially now in this age of manufactured pop, bands that don't realize they aren't really playing punk, and creed clones. i have been disappointed by the rembrandt's in recent years. the LP record had moments of sheer genius, and those outweighed the filler. i would recommend any of the first three records to anyone, but if i had to choose one to start with, untitled would be it. when i am king, this is the kind of stuff you will hear on the radio."
Refreshing, intelligent and thoughtful.

"These are the three words I would use to describe the second Rembrandts work. Unfortunately, like the first album, these are the reasons why it wasn't a commercial success. Each song is crafted with one goal in mind. That is to make good music. From the rock feel of "Johnny Have You Seen Her?" to the Spanish influence of "Back of Your Mind" each song is unique and tells it's own story. It was when The Rembrandts were approached to create "I'll Be There For You" that the duo began their fall to mediocre pop drivel. Get the first and the second Rembrandts CDs and just ignore the third. Maybe it will just go away (except every time you flip past friends)."
