The first goodbye for the Blake Babies.
Michael Stack | North Chelmsford, MA USA | 12/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The last recording made by the Blake Babies (befor their reunion in 2001), "Rosy Jack World" is a fine farewell, showing off the best of what the Blake Babies had to offer while pointed to where their lead singer Juliana Hatfield would end up.

The five tracks-- three originals and two covers, are among the best the band ever did-- "Temptation Eyes", "Downtown" and "Severed Lips" stick with the traditional sounds of the band-- all three are exciting jangle pop (particularly "Temptation Eyes" which is downright superb) and "Downtown" is a vocal feature for John Strohm, whose enthusiasm and heartfelt delivery is clearly audible.

The last two tracks show where Hatfield would end up-- "Take Me" is kind of so-so alternative, but sounds more like it would fit in on Hatfield's "Become What You Are" then here, "Nirvana" is presented as an acoustic-guitar-and-vocal demo by Hatfield, an exciting and emotional piece that she would re-record on her debug album.

Bottom line, it's a nice little EP, well worth acquiring. Highly recommended."
