Too bad almost nobody has ever heard of these guys, but good for me. I actually like their self-titled album more, but this is nearly as great. This album has a very pleasing vibe, it's alt-pop, upbeat, mellow, and everything I like. The track "Sublime" was a minor hit, and is incredibly catchy. Other good songs are "Either Or", "Ice Skating At Night", and "Crash", even though I like them all. If you like that early 90's brit-pop sound at all, you should really like "Beneath The Rhythm & Sound". It'll give you "Peace Of Mind".

If you're looking for glorious music, look no further. TOB is, to use one of their song titles, sublime! There isn't one boring or bad track on this album; all the tracks work together to create a whole.
"Sublime" was their big hit in the early 90's, and it really sold me on the band. In the days when everyone was grunged-out, screaming, and shrieking their guitars, TOB offered quite, subtle, soothing music which made me think that there was beauty in the world after all. BTRAS is one of the few CD's I own that I can listen to without skipping tracks. Other songs on it that I highly recommend (even though they're all good) are "Crash" and "Emotions Ring."
Glorious!!

I loved these guys from the 90"S!! My tape is old and I had to get the cd. If you like the melody of softer alt rock then this is for you. It is like the Lightning seeds in its melody and haunting in its sound.

This is one of the most beautiful albums ever. the sound just washes over you. You cannot help but feel in a positive mood hearing the jangly guitar sound.

I actually only stumbled across this hearing it played in a CD store in Singapore of all places. The band are from Hershey, PA, and the tunes are as sweet as Hershey Kiss (come on, how could I resist with that sort of info as a setup?).

Pretty much the first eight tracks are solid with the album only petering out a little over the last three.

Jacket comes with lyrics and the artwork is superb. Great band in a great package.

If you were a fan of the Three O'Clock, Bangles or early Cure, you'll dig this even though it's an entirely different pop sound.

If I were on a deserted island and could only have ten CDs, one of them would be Beneath The Rhythm and Sound. This is truly one of my favorite CDs of all time. It is melodic, ethereal, and timeless. I will be listening to this CD when I'm an old woman. I love all their albums, but this one is probably my favorite. Emotions Ring is so good, it makes me want to cry.

While we were so busy being smitten with all those dour Mancunians and new wave haircut bands from sundry factory towns across the British Isles, well... so were David Schelzel, Rob Mining, Bobby Mittan and Steve Lau. But in addition to buying records, t-shirts, and bookish glasses they also invested in guitars, keyboards, drums and practice, practice, practice. Like the sweeter air of their own factory-town so flows The Ocean Blue's particular brand of 80's - 90's music. It is hooky jangle pop of the best kind. It has character and sophistication enough to make it substantial but it is never "arty" or self-conscious. Authentic music that just feels good to listen to because it sounds so good. I am quite ashamed to have been living just upstream from them in central PA during their peak years and never properly appreciating their craft. On the other hand, what a pleasant thing it has been recently discovering the lovely and smart music my neighbors made and are apparently still making. From the debut through to Davy Jones' Locker there is a nice continuity of style and just the right amount of growth and variegation. BTR&S is a great exemplar of The Ocean Blue sound. They seem kindred spirits of one of my other favorite bands - the Trashcan Sinatras. I am now eagerly anticipating the release of their latest, Peru - come when it may. The Ocean Blue, who knew? What a sweet confection!

I give this album a five-star rating, my thoughts of this aren't much different from the rest of the reviewers of this album..I agree that in that their first self-titled album was the best..with the songs 'between something and nothing' and 'drifting,falling' being the standout ones from that album..The Ocean Blue's next album Cereulean had some great tunes such as the stand-outs 'ballerina out of control' and 'when life was easy'. 'Beneath the Rhythm and Sound' has some good ones too like 'sublime' , which it is..(ad-libbing here), and 'peace of mind' being my favorites..The soft alternative pop was the anti-dote to the grunged out metallic sound of the usual suspects in the overall alternative music scene..a real escape to me..Interestingly, if that's a word, this band gets compared to The Lightning Seeds, not only in the previous reviews, but by many i've encountered personally over the years..Oddly, The Ocean Blue is not british, like their counterparts, the aforementioned 'seeds' ,who are a fantastic band in their own right..i own a couple of the 'seeds' albums....btw...Imagine that, Ocean Blue being from the United States..miracles never cease..
