Sweet Ona Rose is a marvelous, evocative debut album--years upon years of Americana folklore and travelogue all wrapped up in the slight frame of Krebs and his guitar. Songs like the jaunty title track and the melancholy "Pacific Standard Time" resonate with the sound of empty highways at 3 a.m., as another lost love drifts on by. Trombone, pedal steel, and organ gently flesh out Krebs's poignant outlines--imagine Evan Dando (the Lemonheads), but slightly more folksy and with more stories to tell. Krebs has been around the block many times (including stints in the somewhat lame alt-rock band Hazel and the charmingly retro Golden Delicious), and it shows. Yet even within his world-weary and sardonic songs of love, a certain naiveté shines through. --Everett True

"I was recently recommended this by ..., & upon listeningto the mp3's i had to order it. I was humming the music to the titletrack "Sweet Ona Rose" before i even got this. personaly igive this album 4 & 1/2 stars. Besides Elliot Smith or perhapsRichard Buckner, or maybe Mark Kozelek of Red House painters fame,Pete Krebs is 1 of the most exiciting "newer" song writersout there. I love his song writing & his simple, yet poignentvoice radiates w/ honesty... I tried to put this cd on my "Listmania" list, however i wrote down the wrong ... # & now some... techno dj is unfortunately on my list. I absolutely love"Pacific Standard Time" & "Sweet Ona Rose, but tobe honest all the songs on here are so wonderful that its truelydifficult to pic out my "fave" song... they're all soowonderful. Petes "sound" sorta reminds me of"americana" meets "folk" if that makes anysense. If you like this cd then u need to get your hands on his 1st& most unerated cd "Brigadier". It's sound is morequiet, but it'll give you a better idea of what Petes music is allabout. I cant reccomend any of his stuff enough... Buy thisimmediately as well as his 1st cd, you will not be dissapointed"
An outstanding CD

"This is arguably the best album (his Western Electric is a very close second) from definatly the best musician working in the Northwest, perhaps the whole country. This CD hooks you right off the bat with Johny Come Lately, and you stay hooked till the very end. All the songs on this CD are so good that any other musician would be gratefull to have just 1 or 2 like them on any of their albums. Of particular note are Dressed to the 9's, Ashes Back to Vegas, Hey Mr. Smalltown and Sweet Ona Rose. There is so much alternative rock garbage out there today that it's nice to know there is still someone like Pete Krebs making good, genuine and sincere music. We should all be thankfull, especially those of us who live in the northwest, for we get to call him our own."
