CD Reviews

A timeless masterpiece
Richard R. Johnson | Houston, TX United States | 01/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In all of my years of introducing friends to the first 2 Poi Dog Pondering records, never has their been anyone who didn't think it was one of the most amazing records that they had ever heard. Your punk rock girlfriend will love it, your hippie sister will love it, your Simon and Garfunkel listenin' parents will love it, your 10 year old little brother will love it... Poi Dog Pondering fuses together many folk and roots styles and ties them together with the catchy yet offbeat lyrics of lead singer Frank Orrall. The music is infectious and delightful. Do yourself a favor and add this cd to your collection."
Beautiful Start!

"I had this album for years until I turned someone on to it, whose dog then ate it! I am so glad to have this album again! An absolutely beautiful blend that is fresh as water and air. The music is completely uplifting but not sappy. The blend of styles which includes folk, hawaiian, rock, punk, and big band jazz is absolutely unlike anything you have ever heard and yet very memorable. I cannot recommend this album enough. It is Poi Dog Ponderings first album and just starts you up, gets you moving and prepares you for everything else that they've done. Fractyllic Seal of Approval!"
The fact this didnt get airplay shows the bad state of radio

"The fact that this album went pretty much unnoticed is sad. I would never have heard this if I didnt see the video on MTV's 120 minutes.I went out immediately, and got it.I was thinking there would be only one good song-Dreaming Body.How wrong was I? There is not a dud on this album, and most of the songs are completely different from each other. It reminds me of Graceland by Paul simon, which was a success. They were on Columbia, so they had the promotion money. Maybe Franks voice was still a little too alternative for 1989 top 40? Maybe their name made people think they were heavy metal? Nevertheless, radio didnt touch this album. They really missed out. If you live in cold temperatures, put on ALOHA HONOLULU in the dead of winter, and you will be transformed to a tropical paradise----- Keep on the sunny side, always on the sunny side."
