I Bought Every Album I Could Find

"Lowen & Navarro came out of the so-called Paisley Underground that also produced the like-minded Bangles. L&N make excellent folk rock, differentiated from the pack by their superb singing and harmonizing. L&N mix upbeat, lively music with sorrowful introspective lyrics. It's a devastating combination. They are similar to any number of sixties folkies; Crosby, Stills And Nash, Simon & Garfunkel, Peter Paul And Mary, but they remind of no one so much as Brewer & Shipley (of `One Toke Over The Line' fame). This is music you can listen to all day. Sample lyrics:`...I had a teacher and he led me through the jungle, but where was he when I crumbled into pieces of clay, when I tried to put my best face on you know the damn thing always fit me wrong, too bad you got nothing, nothing to say..'. This is a band that I would expect to be all over the adult alternative charts, but somehow, they aren't! What fools these radio people are! All the tracks are excellent, but especially notable are `Looks Like Sunshine', `Pendulum', `Cry' and 'Until The Well Runs Dry'. I also recommend their other excellent albums WALKING ON A WIRE and BROKEN MOON"
Even better than I expected!

"This is my first Lowen and Navarro cd - heard them on xm radio's The Loft and had to investigate further. I've had it three days and have already ordered my next two, and have researched opportunities to hear them live in concert. The voices and harmonies are breathtaking, the lyrics speak intelligently to the human condition, and somehow I get the feeling I would really "like" these guys. If you are reading this, you are considering a purchase. I urge you to buy it - you won't be sorry!"
