CD Reviews

Pretty pop melodies with big grunge guitars
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The album begins with the pretty rock ballad of Brewster Station and ends with the lullaby of Brighter Than the Day. In between are fun near-pop songs and the most sweetly sophisticated Halfshirt which grows from ballad into a grunge guitar jam ala Smashing Pumpkins."
Best cd I've heard all year
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I caught these guys and gal in some backwoods bar in Birmigham a year or 2 back. One song after another just blew me away and this cd along with Seat Beneath captures the experinces w/o sounding watered down like most of the crap out there. Not too sure where they are now, but dammit if I don't find myself singing one of their tunes in my head almost every day!!"
Less Polished than Later Album, But Some Great Songs
Lucius Kwok | Saint Davids, PA United States | 10/17/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album is less polished than their later work, "A Seat Beneath the Chairs," but its raw quality is great if you're tired of over-produced pop rubbish. The best songs on this album are "Ready OK," "Brewster Station," and "Excuse Me While I Drink Myself...." This album reminds me of a rainy day in north Jersey, possibly in the autumn. They stick to the traditional rock band setup of guitars, drum, and bass. The production is sometimes inconsistent, with vocals almost drowned out by guitars in "West" and a few other songs. While I give this album 4 stars, I don't consider it as good as "A Seat Beneath the Chairs" because the production on this album isn't quite as good."
