CD Reviews

A Glorious EP
Mark Jordan | Gambier, Ohio, USA | 09/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Creative, mischievous, yet heartfelt music from TFUL282. Each song is wonderful and addictive in its own right, but the set all together is like a wild rock symphony. Almost as good as hearing this band live."
4 Songs Worth 20 Bucks
Read Taylor | 12/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is the greatest short CD ever, rivaled only by Negativland's sadly illegal 'U2' single. I saw these guys live in '98 and they were still playing these songs. Not because they haven't released great stuff since, but because these are the sort of songs that make people stop and say, 'Oh my God that's fantastic'. They aren't trying to be odd, I believe their huge singer didn't think up being over 6' tall, a soprano and a skilled banjo player to impress the public. They just are creatively different and deserve the cult status they've acheived. Each song here is good, though I have heard Father too many times to enjoy it as much as Hurricane. For God's sake, buy this - it's the greatest steal since the Minor Threat discography being offered for nine bucks by Dischord. Its soft, weird, noisy, and beautiful in that creative way that can't be faked."
Four perfect pop tunes
Read Taylor | 03/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"TFUL 282 has shed its filler to present four perfect weird pop tunes. This album hinted toward the masterpiece they'd later create, Strangers of the Universe. Only TFUL 282 could incorporate odd instruments like the bango and optigan with march beats and odd lyrics, not unlike Beefheart's or the Resident's, to produce pop. "Father" is perhaps TFUL 282's best tune."
