CD Reviews

Too bad so few listeners can take this seriously
BigSwee | American, living in the UK | 03/06/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"These lyrics are up there with Dylan or Stevie Wonder for simple, simple, expressions of complex, horrible, puzzling things. However, I won't kid myself, most people hear the Frogs' other work (lo-fi home recordings of sophomoric gay and death jokes) and cannot come to terms that they have written a very poignant album about a topic no one would dare approach in such a format.Two white guys singing cheeky sarcasm about racism in america?
There are few things more politically incorrect.But I beg you, LISTEN. Not only are these two admirable pop/rock songwriters and musicians (the guitarist is actually quite impressive technically) but despite the garage-recorded sound, everything here is intentionally. Sure, a song title like "two blacks don't make a white" makes you smile and then feel guilty for smiling, but the sadness, the anger, the confusion, in the lyrics and feel of these songs is real.Force yourself to listen. I am sure that if you do this while reading the lyrics, it will stimulate some self-exploration about your feelings on race, racism, and the United States of America.That said, I do acknowledge all reviewers who want to say it's [garbage]. But isn't that interesting in itself-- that both can be true at once? I like it, any way..."
Frogs vs. thugs

"this kind of lo-fi charm, delivered with an off-handed ease, so effective, so wonderful, is an impossibility to most (maybe all) of the new rock bands out there today (2006).

(don't get me started on the cliche-ridden derivitiveness and nauseating posturing of current "indie rock". I'll start dry-heaving and then randomly stab people)

anyway, this is a great record that doesn't take itself seriously but should be taken very seriously as an important testament to the honesty, power, and grace of rock'n'roll.

(to the other reviewer: it's too bad you can't appreciate the specific socio-political situation which gives rise to the violent themes in modern hiphop. or "get" the culture of the disenfranchised, which is necessary to appreciate the honesty, power, and grace of gangsta rap.)"

"This is some heavy stuff, but the frogs pull it out. Despite being semi-improvisational (or maybe because of it) the frogs are able to produce lyrically sound, musically appealing pieces of work that make me giggle like ...sitting on an ant hill. I love me some frogs."
