CD Reviews

Marveling Britches for a Silly Catsy
09/01/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album has everything it needs to spin at an incredibly quick, sawblade-rotating death speed suitable for beheading even the hardest-necked carcajou. Unfortunately, the CD is made of shiny plastic, not reinforced medical steel, and so my snowed-in mountain dacha remains infested by carcajou, skunk bear, polecats, wood pusses, foulmarts, and other vicious, hungry placental carnivores.I also love this album because I /had/ St. Elmo's Fire, undiagnosed, so hearing about it 4 times just makes me break out all over in light."

""Fires" has been in heavy rotation at my house all spring. The multiple treatments of Eno's "St. Elmo's Fire" have a hypnotic quality, building from a pleasant familiarity on the first track to a terrific release on the later, more uptempo versions. Idiosyncratic in the best sense, this ought to ring some bells for listeners who remember the original from "Another Green World.""
Great for fans of stereolab

"it's great hearing what people can do with covers. i like hearing covers of music that are really different from the originals. this album has four different covers of the same song, so it was a very entertaining experience to hear them all. the covers are excellent and don't worry, it doesn't get tiring to hear the same tune over and over again."
