The Sea and Cake's best. A Post-Rock masterpiece.

"Many TSAC listeners seperate the band's career into two segments: pre and post-Fawn. And I would definitely agree. While their work on The Fawn and later albums is undeniably TSAC in its sound, it is remarkably different than their first three albums. For my money, The Biz is the best of the pre-Fawn era.Here they are still the guitar driven, slightly edgy band they were on their first release. The album flows well and has a cohesive "sound", just like most of TSAC's albums. But the tunes on this album seem to stick in your mind, demanding to be listened to again and again. The guitar work on this album is superb as are the bass and drum work. All very solid. Prekops vocals also reach a high point here, before he moved totally into the breathy vocals of their later albums.For the uninitiated, this is probably the best way to get into TSAC. Put yourself in a "I'll try anything" mood and pop this album in. You won't be disappointed.Highlights here include the title track, The Kiss (with the beautiful and trippy fade out finishing the song), Escort and The Transaction."

"there aren't too many records that sweep you off your feet like this, make you smile when you put them on for the very first time...just a handful. you get that "ahh" feeling and lean back, and you breathe in the oxygen around you and things are perfect. it's just a very rare thing, a phenomenon...records just don't do that too much. this record can be anything and everything, it's so versatile and well-put together. it's new everytime you hear it, clean and fresh, never fails to keep you happy. it's a perfect marketing scam, because once you finish listening, you wish you had more sea and cake records...but you don't. still, in the middle of "darkest night", there's no need for worry, as everything in the world finally sounds and feels completely in tune."
Easy, fun, and catchy. For a change! | Hants, UK | 08/27/2001

"Top jazzy-indie with a modern rock edge - believe me this is fun stuff. Every track is VERY memorable, and the four minute instrumental The Escort is an enjoyable romp with some nifty riffs. Sam Prekop's relaxed vocals - more understandable here than on newer Sea and Cake efforts - compliment the tracks nicely, as do the occasional usage of wibbly electronics (only occasional mind, which is why latter releases have gone downhill - to much arsing about with style and effects!). One negative point is For Minor Sky - far too heavy by comparison (to the rest) and IMHO hasn't stood up to such repeated listening. A shame since I find going through the rest of The Biz to be So Darned Enjoyable. :) Make sure this is the album you start with if you haven't heard these guys yet!"
