CD Reviews

Kryptonite Guitar Playing!
Davy Chevelle | Southern Calif. | 08/06/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This will be brief......Pocket Full of Kryptonite is one of those albums I pull off the shelf every so often when I need a "fix" of Stratocaster ear candy. Obviously, Jimmy Olsen's Blues & Two Princes are the cuts that have catchy grooves and "feel-good" nuances. But the reason I decided to enter this Opinion was for listeners to focus on the guitar playing of Eric Schenkman. He's got some terrific riffs, cool harmonics.......but what really grabs you is some of the intricate chord structures /textures he creates on that Strat! If you're into guitar......you'll know where I comin' from. That alone is a reason to own this album. Oh......and you'll hear all of these elements on the disc's final cut --"Shinbone Alley/ Hard to Exist". Trust me.....it's wonderful Strat magic!"
The only Spin Doctors you'll ever need

"Pocket Full Of Kryptonite was easily the Spin Doctors' best album. Although this album made the band huge mainly due to the singles "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and "Two Princes", two of the catchiest singles of the early-90's, their success was brief as their preceding albums lacked the hooks and memorable tracks that were featured here. Every track here is good, with the aforementioned hits, "Off My Line", and the killer jam "Shinbone Alley/Hard To Exist" being the best. Other great and catchy tracks include "What Time Is It?", "Jimmy Olsen's Blues", and "More Than She Knows." The ballad "How Could You Want Him", the dreamy "Forty Or Fifty", and the hard-rocking "Refrigerator Car" are also strong tracks. Although lead vocalist Chris Barron was the focal point of the band, the star here is Mark White, whose funky bass playing really carries these tunes. This is far away their best album, although their live album Homebelly Groove...Live! is pretty decent as well. But unless you're a huge fan, this is all the Spin Doctors you'll ever need."
Whatever. It's just plain entertaining.

"Look, I'll level with y'all...I don't give a damn about greatness or musical movements or how much this band is like that band or what the songwriter really intended. I'll gladly listen to anything that's fun and easy on the ears. That's Pocket Full of Kryptonite in a nutshell. About the only negative thing I can say is that the lyrics don't always hang together (no different for any number of other non-mainstream rock bands). Everything else is just fine. The pace is always lively, the instrumentation blends together perfectly and...aw, heck, it's just plain entertaining. Didn't I say that already?"
