CD Reviews

The Hips do it again!

"Another great album from one of the best bands around. If you like Wilco, Son Volt, Tom Petty, Neil Young, and/or The Beach Boys, you owe it to yourself to buy this album!"
The hips are on!!!

"Once again The Hips deliver a masterpiece!!! Tim had told me that they were working on harmonies primarily on this one, and they are better than ever!!! This is really the style that I feel defines the band and carries a signiture sound for future releases. White Falcon Fuzz is stellar with Tims' descending and rising vocals. Third floor is a rocker worthy of bows from all. I think Jess OXO is my favorite track, and a hard choice. It really has a Beatles feel to it. and how can you go wrong there? Lion and the bull is a fun jingle with Tom Petty like vocals. One way out is my wifes favorite song on the cd which makes it pretty special to me also. All in favor was absolutely beautiful with its' prime harmonies and lyrical progression. I loved Pacific Dust, it totally grew on me like fungus, also provides some awesome guitar riffs, and feels. Young Charles Ives was original and had a groove you can't get out of, hats off Greg!!! Are you free was completely different from the normal Hips song, and was reminiscent of DaDa (also one of my favorite bands). It was a much appreciated change that completed the albums versatility. Bandit Boy is a perfect live song and reminds me of their powerfull live shows. Cheer up champ takes me back to the times Tim was solo and was just the icing on the album. I also listened to the extra EP songs which were all great in their own respect. Raining Gravel was spectacular. All in all I dub "Pacific Dust" album of the year!!! Hope to see you all on tour again soon in Utah!!!"
The Best Band You've Never Heard Of

"My life long buddy Jeff, residing in Montana now but for 20 years in Sonoma, tells me about this band that he really thought I would like. He followed their progress over the years and considered himself a major fan. For my birthday last fall he bought me tickets to a show in a small club in Fairfax, CA so I went. I was impressed by the Hips' skill, writing and execution as well as their laid back stage presence. Don't get me wrong, the show was exciting as hell as there is so much going on musically and coming off that stage is a solid sound that gets in your bones while the harmonies and lyrics fill your heart.

I was at the Mother Hips album release party in San Francisco and got my copy of Pacific Dust at the door. The show was just fantastic as they played two 50 minute sets and an encore. I listened to Pacific Dust all the way home after the show.

The album is original without being so far removed that the average listener can't relate and enjoy every track and the production values are first rate. Good mix, good sound and very easy to listen to over and over. For a real treat put five Hips albums in your CD changer and hit "Shuffle All". I assure you that you won't be bored!

The nagging question about these guys, nagging me anyway, is why they aren't known to a wider audience? I'm not complaining, no. I love endorsing the Mother Hips to friends that have never heard of them like my friend Jeff did for me. I just wish I could take them all to a show but I suppose Pacific Dust in their Christmas stocking will have to suffice."
