"Among the distinctions that can be made about people, one is that there are those who demand originality, deep meaning and soul-stirring relevance from their music; on the other hand there are those who just like a bouncy tune because it makes them feel good. The Tuesdays are for the second, more well-adjusted, set. This is a compilation which borrows mightily from The Beatles - If Sandra Dee had married Paul in 1965, "It's Up To You" might have appeared on Rubber Soul. Dittos if it had been John for "I'll Be Here". Even though the style of "Too Late To Be Good" is admittedly generic, the integration of sounds and simple fun the song gives makes for a superior offering to those of us whose ears didn't just fall off the turnip truck. It will be interesting to see if this is a band that actually exists or is a studio creation - in any event, it's an easy bet that after you buy this disc, you'll replay it for one song or another within the first 5 samplings. It's a fun selection, well-produced and tight, with excellent road wearability."
Move over Spice Girls. Here are some girls with talent.

"First the Go-Go's, then the Bangles. Now we have the Tuesdays. What a great group with a great sound. Laila Samuels voice is perfect. The CD shows the group's range from fast upbeat songs such as "It's Up to You" to slow ballads like "Take Me Home". They are definitely a group to watch."
Still a favorite

"I, too, was taken by the jangly, Bangles-like sound of this band - and especially the lead vocalist who just happens to sound a lot like the Bangles' Susanna Hoffs. Grab this CD before it becomes impossible to find. I kept checking the official web site for news about the second album (the web site STILL says they haven't broken up, and the album is coming ... so much for timeliness). If, like me, you're starving for more, the following tidbit might be of interest. The lead vocalist, Laila Samuelsen (often trimmed to Samuels for the West) has had moderate success as a songwriter and backup vocalist, but at least a couple of times she has tried to make it as a solo artist. The last such effort was in 2005 with a promotional single called "I Guess U Guessed". It's more "adult contemporary" in style than the Tuesdays were, but VERY listenable; and any fan of the Tuesdays will recognize the voice instantly. Unfortunately, it seems to have gone nowhere; but here's the good news - you can download it for free. [...]"
