5.0 out of 5 stars Best Album I've purchased in a year September 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is great!
Superb musicians and even better song writers. These songs are lighter in sound than Joey's Lagwagon, but far superior in craftsmanship (except for maybe some of the stuff off of "Feelings" and some of the newer songs of "Leftovers"). For being such a "new" band it's hard to believe how interwoven the instruments are throughout these songs.
Don't expect the snare crashing 220 beat per minute songs of Lagwagon, but if you're into punk, rock, emo, or even metal (you metal heads will like the musicianship) you'll enjoy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars is this cd real? September 2, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Bad Astronaut is a perfect rock band with a real fresh sound. Joey Cape has to have is hands full between Lagwagon, Me First and the Gimme Gimme's, running a record label, and touring; all this makes a man wonder where he gets time to not only make a record with another band, but to make a completely original rock'n'roll masterpiece. I wouldn't call Bad Astronaut punk, I'd call it a new form of progressive space rock with punk and emo influences. cool, very cool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow... August 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is really some serious songwriting. The music is superb, Derrick Plourde really shines teaming up with his old LagWagon cohort Joey. But, while this is a 5 star album, it is NOT a "party/fun" ride. Most songs are very serious, and downright sad. But, its awesome songwriting, exceptional even.
And the answering machine clips are friggin hilarious.

5.0 out of 5 stars ROCKIN ALBUM November 15, 2002
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
This is a really, really, interesting album. It's definitely a music major's paradise. The chord progessions and changes are great. When I first heard this not quite 2 years ago, I was hooked. (I recall only months ago e-bay sellers had a tough time getting rid of this EP... Not anymore) This release will refresh you if you are bored with radio. Also, check out their more experimental/less Lagwagonish new album.

When I first heard about Joey and Derek getting back together for this little "experiment", I was overwhelmed to hear it. Now, between this and the new Propaghandi, I have no other Cd's in my life. If it gets better, e-mail and let me know.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album. Not your average punk band October 14, 2002
By Dan
Format:Audio CD
I don't like punk very much, in fact, this is pretty much the only punk album I like. If you can even call it a punk album, that is. This is much more complex and serious than most punk bands could ever be. Now, what we have here is a mix of punk, emo, acoustic & electric guitars, keyboards, metal guitar solos, and metal and progressive rock influence. The result? A brilliant album. Unlike anything I've heard before. The songwriting is superb, and the keyboards add alot of good to this band. Awesome drumming and some cool guitar work as well. The singer has a great voice, perfect for this band. I feel like I could go on for a long time about this album, but I'll wrap it up now. Every song is fantastic. If you like the music I mentioned above and you have an open mind, check this out. Maybe it's not for everyone, but you just might like this. Also, their new album is out on the 15th, I can't wait to get it. Ok, I've definitely talked for too long now, cya!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lagwagon minus fast pace=bad astronaut January 14, 2002
By Sam
Format:Audio CD
like the title says, bad astronaut sounds basically like a slower lagwagon. they've got lagwagon's singer so its gonna sound pretty similar. but they've got a cello in it sometimes so you can see that this isn't fast punk rock. but still, it is a good new aspect to punk that any lagwagon fan would enjoy and if you like emo you'll like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars few and far between are records this good July 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Lagwagon for years. Maybe this is sacrilege to say but I prefer Bad Astronaut to the older stuff. Its just more mature, more full-circle. This cd isn't for someone who expects a song to last 3 1/2 - 4 minutes and to have a verse/chord/verse/chord pattern. This is a completely thorough cd, every song is great. Its perfectly balanced - songs that really rock out like "Grey Suits" followed by songs like "Quiet" and "500 Miles" where Joey Cape's rings out hauntingly over the soft guitar. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Joey Cape and Lagwagon. The vocals are emotion-packed, the lyrics are top of the line. Joey Cape has become a real master musician over the years, he puts out solid. Its hard to put this music into a genre, its just hands down good music.
