Devil, pour me another shot

"It is a shame that only the first half of the album have sound bites. Since Concrete Blonde has a new CD after 8 years, I thought it fit that I give my two cents about this album as I am sure a new generation of listeners will be curious. THIS IS THE ALBUM TO OWN AND LOVE---Especially if you are a hormonal late teen, early twenty with a crush on a boy, or someone who has recently been dumped.I am a happily married mother of two that can still relive those awkward, painful days thanks to Johnette's unique and edgy voice. This is a good thing.Listening to Little Conversations into Carry Me Away allowed me to suffer a proper suffering and yearning for more. I can only hope that the newest CD will produce a similar effect (suffering with the laundry, cooking, and cleaning perhaps?). We'll see."
Concrete Fun! Snatch up the magic!

"A lyrical fun house of music to move you. Concrete Blonde delivers the goods as usual. The baby-fine whine of Jim Mankey's guitar sends electric chills to the core. Johnette Napolitano's voice is a deep, emotional hayride -- smooth as honey with the snappy grasp of a venus flytrap. Lay your money down and snatch up a slice-o-glee, kids."
I've yet to find any Concrete Blonde music I've disliked??

"Any promise we'd make, was as easy to break, as the plastic pieces on our wedding cake" (from Carry Me Away/last track on FREE album)
That was the first Concrete Blonde lyric I ever heard. Immediately I was hooked. Not just the dark and wonderfully written lyrics though... I fell in love with Johnette Napolitano's voice. I was also given the pleasure of seeing them play live at the Hollywood Palladium in 1992. Johnette was no more than 10 feet from me and I was totally in a captivated state. As great as the album recordings sound? That's the way they sound live also. I always respect a band that doesn't rely on studio mastering to obtain quality. REM's lead singer named the band Concrete Blonde due to the fact their music range varies greatly, from REAL HARD rock, to the most beautiful soft ballads, Hard and Soft at the same time. Get it? YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED buying any Concrete Blonde album, That's a fact!"
