Editorial Reviews

Review

" Black everyman lyricism... poppy upbeats and whimsical melodies....Akin to fellow L.A. rap iconoclasts the Pharcyde at their freshest." -- L
LA Weekly, June 2006


"...Catchy choruses...laid back, soulful vibe...a blend of live instrumentation and samples...a consistently enjoyable album." -- URB, July/August 2006

"Highbrow hip hop and self-effacing, quirky lyricism. Energetic, intelligent, and always fun." -- Flavorpill, June, 2006

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Showman and a Solid Album April 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I first encountered Pigeon John when he opened up for Of Montreal in Jacksonville, Florida. In the middle of his set, I had to go to the merchandise table to pick up a couple of his albums. I was pleased to see that PJ's showmanship really carried through in this record.

This album has a lot of great energy. The hooks never get old or dull, and the lyrics successfully pull in even folks who aren't typically hip-hop fans.

Recommended for...

* Fans of fun hip-hop.

* Indie rock fans who are looking for something different.

* Someone looking for nice upbeat music to carry you through the day.

the good time party anthems, the slower introspective tracks and even some hardcore hip hop all make features here for what HAS to be Pigeon John's friggin' best album... I don't think anyone could be dissapointed in this release if they TRIED...

BUY IT!

peace,

5.0 out of 5 stars THE GREATEST PARTY EVER!!! February 15, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
I was just looking at the responses the people had say about Pigeon's newest album and I was entirely surprised to only see a few reviews. I was expecting more reviews for Pigeon John. The cd is aweosme. Just amazing. From beginning to end is non-stop great hip-hop.

The cd starts off with a nice intro "Welcome to the Show", getting you ready for the best cd you will hear. You have love songs, club/dance songs, fun songs, and even songs about John's love and confusion with God. The Summertime Pool Party ends with one of the greatest songs known to me, "Growin' Old". A wonderful song with Pigeon reminiscing about the great and innocent times of being young and chillin' with your friends.

I'm a pretty big fan of PJs but thats not to say if you have not ever herd of him you won't like him. Trust me, you don't need to have herd any other song he has done, just know by getting this album, you will have purchased one of the best albums ever. Pigeon's pool pary is the greatest. Trust me...

5.0 out of 5 stars Pigeon John and the Summertime Pool Party December 10, 2007
By Omagus
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Pigeon John for well over a decade. Back before he'd ever released material of his own, he was one of the more frequent guest MCs on albums by other west coast underground artsists. Listening to his cameos on works by artists such as Dynamic Twins, I.D.O.L. King, DJ Dove and LPG I grew to enjoy his quirky rap cadence and refreshingly optimistic outlook on life.

In 1998 he, along with partner bTwice, released the first (and thus far only) album from Brainwash Projects. Although it took some time, The Rise & Fall of Brainwash Projects became one of my favorite albums period. It follows in the vein of debuts from other west coast acts like the Pharcyde and Souls of Mischief in just being a slice of life from a couple of guys who love hip hop and girls but also take a moment every now and then to really make you think.

Pigeon John's solo work since then hasn't grabbed my attention quite as much. Pigeon John Is Clueless is less of a true album and more of a collection of solo tracks that he had recorded over a period of several years; thus it lacked true cohesion. Pigeon John Is Dating Your Sister is a much better effort but in my opinion it still does not stack up to TRAFOBP, mostly because it lacks the chemistry that can only be achieved by a couple of guys who'd been friends for 15 years.

That brings me to PIGEON JOHN AND THE SUMMERTIME POOL PARTY. At long last I have to say that PJ has achieved an accomplishment that is as good as what he did with his partner in rhyme.

This album is pretty simple to review, it is a LOT OF FUN! Great production with catchy songs. Buy this album and see for yourself. Also, if you every have the opportunity to see Pigeon John perform live, do yourself a favor and go see him!
