TURN IT UP

"Alt country madman Todd Snider has been strangely ignored by the musical mainstream. I first heard of him when the excellent, biting `Alright Guy' got some alternative airplay. I took me just one listen to know that Snider was for me. Of course, `Alright Guy' is positively gushy compared the venomous minor hit `Talking Seattle Grunge-Rock Blues' a Dylanesque send up of Grunge-mania. His more traditionally country tune was even covered by the more traditionally country Mark Chesnutt. Needless to say, Snider has songwriting chops comparable to guys like Nick Lowe, Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello. Genrewise he is in the alt country zone populated by Joe Buck, Tommy Womack and Webb Wilder. For pathos, check out his mournful `That Was Me' or the stirring, affecting `You Think You Know Somebody'. For pulse pounding, uplifting tunes try `A Whole Lot More' or `Somebody's Coming'. It's hard to overrate Snide; every track here is a memorable sing along gem. Pity that witty roots rockers are so out of fashion."
Best singer/songwriter of the 90's!

"This CD is amazing. In my opinion Todd Snider is truly the most gifted singer/songwriter of the nineties. Who else compares? A great performer/artist in the vein of Jimmy Buffett, Jerry Jeff Walker and John Prine. If you don't own this CD then you're missing a great piece of music. And what about those Nervous Wrecks? GREAT band! If you ever get the chance to see Todd live (especially solo/acoustic) don't pass it up. I guarantee you won't be dissapointed. Todd's a born entertainer!"
The place to start.

"For anybody who wishes to buy a Todd Snider CD, this is the place to start. With tunes such as "Seattle Grunge Rock Blues", "My Generation, Part 2" and "Alright Guy", this album provides several must-have's for the Todd Snider fan. Alternately thoughtful, witty, and hilarious, but always entertaining, this album was the very exciting start for a man who would become something of a cult hero. Be warned: if you listen to this album, you are going to want to hear more."
