Synopsis

Amazon.com
Hailing from England's Isle of Wight--famous for hosting Jimi Hendrix's last major live appearance in 1970 at its annual hippie festival and, well, abundant sheep farms--its no wonder A Band of Bees' second album sounds like it was rescued from a time capsule. The production has such a vintage feel you can practically taste the dust on the deeply psychedelic grooves of "Wash In The Rain" and the Farfissa-fueled instrumental "The Russian." Meanwhile, on a track like "Chicken Payback," the duo-turned-sextet's appetite for experimentation runs so wild that the collision of music hall horns, old school soul rhythms and zoo animal lyrics results in what probably has to be the most buzz-inducing thing this side of a Nuggets box. --Aidin Vaziri

CD Reviews

A truly diverse collection of songs
Kate E. Bruns | Des Moines, IA USA | 03/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's no band quite like The Bees. Their latest release is a fascinating combination of music influenced by 1960s soul, 1970s acid rock, 1980s pop, folk, blues, and punk. If you like eclectic albums, this one's for you."
No Staying Power
Eddie Wannabee | Western Hemisphere | 11/08/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Simply put: Average listening, no staying power. Songs lack the staying power one expects from the best. There are no incredible songs to be had, these guys are okey (okey-do-ke) and in my opinion rating this band 5 Stars might lead to some unwanted purchase from a friendly consumer (like me). 3 stars for Band of Bees "Free the Bees"."
