CD Reviews

Power pop fans gotta have this!
D. Hartley | Seattle, WA USA | 05/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Canadian Bob Segarini is one of those artists who toiled in relative obscurity for many years yet consistently turned out outstanding material.(Can you say.."Martin Newell"?) This was his first solo outing after helming several projects in the 70's, including the Dudes and his most well-known group, the Wackers. Originally released in the early 80's, this collection is an unsung power-pop classic. I would place the album's best tune, "With The Lights Out" up there with Todd Rundgren's "Couldn't I Just Tell You" or Cheap Trick's "Surrender" any day. Nary a weak song on this CD...power poppers dig in!"
A Total Melodic Delight

"Hard to believe that this album and Bob Segarini didn't achieve great fame. Well, the cynical side of me says, "No surprise." Afterall, how many radio stations would dare to play the very lyrical "Steady Eddie" with its satirical play on Beaver Cleaver and his television clan? "Don't Believe a Word I Say" scrutinizes the dating scene and all the phoney bravado it generates. "Gotta Have Pop," "When the Lights are Out," and other tunes here just delight with great melodies and pretty doggone entertaining lyrics that don't insult the listener's intelligence. All in all, a real delightful listening experience."

"From The Family Tree to Roxy to The Wackers to The Dudes to his solo releases, Bob Segarini has made consistently compelling pop music for the mind and body. Why he isn't a star could be the subject of a million dissertations. Meanwhile, buy this CD and any other release of his that you can get your hands on. The proof is in the music and you should be listening."
