"...and then my lips went balistic..."

"2Nu is unlike any other band or group you have ever heard. The entire basis for this album is what happens to the human brain when one eats too much pizza before going to bed. Every song sounds like somebody's dream: good, bad or otherwise. It's fascinating, funny, intruiging, ecclectic, weird, wonderful, delightful and downright strange.

SPAZ ATTACK and THIS IS PONDEROUS are, of course, the standouts. However, listen to FRANK'S CHAIR and HER NAME carefully and you will realize that it's the same story told from two points of view. DDS BLUES is dead-bang on for capturing that incredible feeling of need for escape from the dentist. And TWO OUT OF THREE is an incridibly bittersweet story of love, longing, and love lost. The imagery is astounding in its description and angst. You can REALLY feel for this guy, and feel the stone in the pit of his stomache as things resolve.

Just incredible!"

"What truly is Ponderous about 2NU is that they only ever gave us this one album. Perhaps after creating it (and I do mean creating) they new that the heights they reached here, could never be again be attained and so, just gave up.

This is a truly unique and exceptional album. In more than 20 years working in the record game I have never heard its like before or since and sadly I think never shall.

It's very hard to actually explain just what the album is. It is, part poetry, part spoken word, part singing, part musical, part humourous, part tragedy and all brilliantly put together and definately gives you something to ponder.

Highlights for me are the spoken tracks - Ponderous, Frank's Chair, 2 Outta 3 and Her Name. In between is a quirky, witty bunch of songs including a version of "Spill The Wine" that is, I don't hesitate to say, the best I've ever heard (sorry EB).

The only other thing I can say is get out there, hunt it down and capture it NOW, before it disapears forever!!"

"I first heard the singles Ponderous and She probably around 1990 and was very intrigued in what I heard. Ponderous was very comical yet stimulating to the mind as well, and She was just an all out great story. I then a few years later went looking for the full album, which I finally found the cassette in about 1995. The entire tape was great, with a ecclectic mix of story and instrumentation that not only sounded good, it was stimulating as well. I am now searching for the CD version as well as anything else they produced.

I have since this review purchased the CD of Ponderous, but have also found their second CD entitled "2Nu2" and it is as equally amazing as the first. Check them out if you find them."
