5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Weirdness, Whatever You Call It It's Great August 20, 2001
By arkm
Format:Audio CD
Okay first thing's first, this album (And this band) is somewhat of an acquired taste. If you like social commentary that's not preachy, great 4-part harmonies, and a bit of silliness in your music, read on.
That being said, this is one of the most funny, yet intelligent, CDs you will ever find. There are hilarious comments on Rush Limbaugh (The Greatest Man in America), right wing politics (Big Fish, my personal favorite), daytime "talk shows", (Jenny Washington), work, (I Love My Boss) and gambling (The Ballad of Cedric Fruvous). There's also a cute, slightly Tom Lehrer-like science song (Entropy), and one silly, classic Fruvous song (Johhny Saucep'n). The only song I don't really like is Ash Hash, and even then I don't hate it strongly.
Sounds too political and folky, you say? Wrong. In the wrong hands this would come off as phony or heavy-handed, but done by Fruvous they are light, snappy, and catchy as heck. (Just TRY to get Big Fish or Jenny Washington out of your head, and watch as they get hopelessly stuck in your brain.) The messages are subtle, and the harmonies are outstanding. It's also worth mentioning that they are about as non-conformist and non-corporate as you'll ever get- different, but not in a pretentious, we hate any thing mainstream way.
So what are you waiting for? If you love Barenaked Ladies, They Might Be Giants, or possibly Weezer, try this for a fresh, tuneful change of pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars my stars, this band is great. July 16, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
okay. so most who know me know of my "love me, love my incessant fruvous playing". some react more favorably than others. but even those who dread the endless spinning of a CD changer packed with fru find this album funny. in future friend/partner screenings, i plan to play this album for them. if they don't break into collapsing guffaws at least once, they don't get to be my friend.
the political humorist in me is all over fruvous like a cheap suit. their kiss-offs to lecherous reactionaries are big, sloppy, wet mwwwwwwAHHs. they bring much needed laughter to an often humorlessly bleak political landscape. and if you can't beat 'em, it's time to, well, "score some boo".
so buy this album. your inner child desperately needs a big noogie.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'B' contains the meaning of life! April 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Moxy's got this great quality to their music...the ability for their CD's to completely ostracize the rest of my music from my CD-player, and use it as their personal funpark. Not that I mind. And in my Moxy collection, one CD stands out as diverse as the NY Yankees and as touching and witty as Jackie Mason...b! Utterly adorable! Starting off with 'I love my Boss,' each song proves to be a 3-minute nuggett of heaven, so delightfully packaged and set to music! The lyrics are 'da bomb...;' Moxy manages to tackle the ornery issues of boss hating, haute cuisine, and even staying politically charged, tackling the rather-untackable Rush Limbaugh, Candadian gambling, and the issue of Quebec separation. I've been a Moxy supporter for quite some time, and no other album makes me want to consistantly stand up and thank someone I'm alive and not deaf for this exquisite gem. If only they toured somewhere outside of Candada and upstate NY, goddamit! See Moxy! Live Moxy! And GET THIS ALBUM!

5.0 out of 5 stars Humor and musical ability combine in this euphoric album! February 20, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Moxy Fruvous is a brilliant group, as is perfectly demonstrated on the B album. The songs are closer to a capella than usual, letting the witty lyrics shine. I'm a sucker for fun songs about math and science, so Entropy is a personal favorite. Try to memorize Johnny Saucep'n for a challenge. If you like Tom Lehrer, BNL, They Might Be Giants or the Dukesmen, go for the B album.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a roundabout of pure fun this is! October 23, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Hoo Boy! This is a great collection of rare bits and oddities from our boys of Toronto. Previously only available as an import, "B" contains many of the songs we "Fruheads" have come to know and love. The first song "I Love My Boss" is an ode to the slave-drivin', minimum-wage shillin' bosses of the world. Where else can you hear the lines "I we may be retrograde/Speak the name Ruben Kinkade?" "The Greatest Man in America" is perhaps the funniest "tribute" ever written to Rush Limbaugh the "Megalo with a healthy glow." "Johnny Saucep'n" takes you on a pnnywhistle tour through the most bizarre, yet homey, kitchen this side of the Swedish Chef's. "Ash Hash", a cover of the Bob Snider song, turns the tables on folk-music and lets loose with another side of Fruvous's "Boo Time" antics. "Gord's Gold" is a WILDLY bizarre tribute to Gordon Lightfoot. "Big Fish", a tell-all about Ontario's "ultra right-wing" Premier provides the best mid-album song in the whole Fruvous line up. "Jenny Washington" is a fun jibe at the human obsession with crappy talk-shows. "The Ballad of Cedric Fruvous" mercilessly atacks Canada's legalization of gambling (who thought local politics could be so lyrical?) "Entropy" is a fun educational romp through that which turns a "palace to a pig-sty." And finally, "The Kids' Song" rounds out the album. "The Kids' Song" is perhaps one of the most respectful songs ever written about the importance of children and childhood. It's also a GREAT song to see performed. So, there it is. A very short very good fun Fruvous album. If the boys are coming through your town, go see them. You won't be disappointed! Fruhugs for everyone!
