"All the s,t! elements are present on this debut album: quirky songs, Beth's unusual voice (think halfway between Harriet Wheeler & Jill Sobule and you wouldn't be a million miles out) and arrangements which aren't dissimilar to Ben Folds Five (with a twist). If my first experience with s,t! had been this, I probably would have left it there to be honest. It's a little aimless in places, the songs are good but not great, the production a little rough in places. Not a bad album by any means, but when you go through a lot of music, some albums jump out at you while others remain indistinct and never make that connection - this being a prime example.I found their second album first and had to hunt around for some time before I got this and was mildly disappointed that it didn't have whatever seductive quality it was that made the other such a priceless find.If word-of-mouth about the band in general brought you this far, then by all means check this album out, but I really think all you get here is a taste of what they were capable of a couple of years later. There's a gulf between this and the follow-up, "(We Get There When We Do)" and it really is worth the extra effort to track the latter album down."
I had a beautiful dream,...and it was Suddenly, Tammy!

"I have been a fan of Suddenly, Tammy!'s for many years. Beth Sorrentino's vocals are beautiful and the band's music brings out the kid in me! And, the way Beth pounds that piano,...it's just great."
Infectiously good piano pop.

"I listened to this CD three times in a row after I brought it home, and I hadn't done that since I bought R.E.M.'s Chronic Town years ago. These songs bounce and move and are pure delight. Beth Sorrentino's clear voice and grown-up nursery rhyme piano melodies are solidly supported by the rhythm section of Jay Sorrentino and Ken Heitmuller, who are not relegated to the background. You won't miss the guitars."
