CD Reviews

An EP worth checkingout

(4 out of 5 stars)

"First, of all, I would like to applaud Andrew Broder, the man behind Fog, for making an EP worth buying. This thing has 30 minutes of new songs, and no remix crap. I think almost every band can learn a thing or two from this guy... Now, onto the actual music. The CD opens with the fabulous "Whom That Hits Walls," which sounds like a mixture of Need New Body and cLOUDDEAD. Bizzaro free jazz meets ambient trip-hop, and it really works. However, the EP goes a bit downhill from there. It's a little hard to describe turns into one of those albums that you get all excited about and tell your friends that they have to hear it, and they're like "what's so great about this?" Then, you say, "NO NO NO! Just wait, wait for the really cool part." The part comes, and everyone is like "whoa, that was pretty cool...too bad it was only 20 seconds long." Don't get me wrong! Those cool parts are REALLY cool (when the 'orchestra' of typewriters comes in on "Cockeyed Cookie Pusher," you just can't help but feel all fuzzy). However, sometimes the CD is too ambient, and unnecessary.

The No-Hype EP of the Year 2004

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Perhaps it's the fact that I've convinced myself that Fog read Stephen Jay Gould's entire oeuvre before making this album or perhaps it's the fact that Fog can take childhood & adolescent moments, weave them into a deft brief lyric and not have it sound trite or BrightEyes-ish or perhaps it's the rage I feel everytime I walk into Crossroads music in downtown Blacksburg, Virginia and find this album listed in the 'indie-hip-hop' section (I mean, what the f@ck?) regardless of the number of times I've told the faux-hipster staff that Fog does not belong there that I love this album.

Look, it comes down to this--do you want pop-subbaculcha or innovation? If the latter, dig into Fog; if the former, go buy the Arcade Fire."

"A perfect realization of the best of his first two albums... Very powerful... (he seems to be using turntables a lot less). With each release, Fog only keeps getting better."
