This sorta folky, sorta bluesy, totally rockin' San Francisco quartet lives up to it's critical acclaim and then some. Linda Perry's pyrotechnics on "Morphine and Chocolate" would give Robert Plant pause. Jeff Bateman

4.0 out of 5 stars A Name to Remember: Linda Perry October 25, 2002
Format:Audio CD
First of all, the 4 Non Blondes are no more, which is difficult to understand, given the success this album enjoyed. The San Francisco based quartet signed with Interscope Records in the early `90s, and their debut effort in 1992, "Bigger, Better, Faster, More!" was their first and last recording together, but it produced one mega-hit, "What's Up," which sold more singles than any song in warner history. Still, they were destined to join the roster of the music scene's One-hit Wonders; but anyone who listens to this album isn't going to forget it any time soon.
The band produced an alternative rock/coffee house blues sound with a penetrating presentation that would give your coffee the jitters, and it's that sound that is captured on this CD. From the opening bars of "Train," to the final refrain of "No Place Like Home," the Non Blondes come at you with a vengeance, and they give no quarter. This is raw, edgy stuff that will get your attention with the first cut, and by the time you reach the end of the album the first time through, you're hooked. They get you and they get you good.
To give credit where it's due, the 4 Non Blondes are: Christa Hillhouse, base; Roger Rocha, guitar; Dawn Richardson, drums; and last but not least, singer/songwriter (and consummate artist) Linda Perry on vocals. And referencing Perry as such is not to be taken as a mere platitude; because talented as Hillhouse, Rocha and Richardson are, it is Perry who is the real story here.
Without question, Linda Perry is the driving force behind the band. She has a strong, distinctive voice and she knows how to use it. And the term "subtle" is not in her vocabulary. She gives you everything she's got on every song, and she has quite a bit to give. Think Taylor Dane meets Tina Turner and you'll have an idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars too bad this was it for them May 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I finally picked up this CD for the one song, "What's Up." Without question, that song had stuck with me for years. I wasn't expecting much; I just wanted that one song. I was completely blown away. This CD is absolutely incredible!

There is not one weak song on this creation. I dare say that "What's Up" is not even the best one; I'm rather fond of ""Spaceman."

I would call the sound of 4 Non Blondes that of a well-produced garage band. I couldn't picture them filling up massive stadiums, but I bet they would tear down large concert halls.

The singer's voice is unique and powerful. The lyrics are introspective and satisfying. The music, itself, just rocks. The whole combination creates a powerful experience.

It's most unfortunate that this band began and ended here with, "Bigger, Better, Faster, More."

5.0 out of 5 stars the best March 28, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album I've ever owned, but I need to correct something, the lead singer is not dead!! Don't worry. Her name is Linda Perry, and she has 2 (TWO!!!) solo albums which are both excellent. In Flight and After Hours. Check them both out. 4 Non Blondes can also be found on a lot of soundtracks(Waynes World 2, Airheads) and tributes(Encomium: A tribute to Led Zepplin, If I Were A Carpenter: A Tribute to the Carpenters).

If you have never listened to 4 Non Blondes yet, it is something you should do sometime.
They use a bit of blues, rock and a few other things, but it all combines really well.
The first song from the album that they released was the fantastic song 'what's up'. Brilliant guitar introduction and after hearing it a few times, you will be singing along to it.
'Pleasantly Blue', the fourth song on the album, is completely different. As the title suggests, it is a blues song but with the infamous 4 non blondes rock touch.
The second song on the album is called 'Superfly' and has some pretty cool drums in it. Again different from the other songs.
'Morphine and Chocolate' starts like a ballad and is a bit strange and dull, but bearable.
'Spaceman'is another catchy song but is lacking a bit of the zing that some of the other songs have.
'Old Mr Heffer' might sound like it is from a cartoon, but gets some of the jumpiness that you need after the last couple of dullish songs.
'Calling all the people' is a brilliant anthem and is a really great song to lift you up if you are feeling a bit depressed and like everyone is getting on at you. listen to the chorus a couple of times and you will be happy, singing and jumping (possibly).
'Dear Mr President' again is like a ballad, but has singing rather the shouting that you will be used to by now. Great drums.
'Drifting' has only a guitar accompanying throughout the song (with a bit of strings in the middle) and although it sounds very good, needs a bit of rhythm to make it better.
'No place like home' is brilliant. The drums are fabulous and although you can't really sing along to it, just listening to it will make you happy. Speaking is a bit difficult to understand, but doesn't make the song sound any worse.
Basically, don't laugh at them until you have heard them. You might be surprised!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Debut. March 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I bought Four Non Blondes (FNB) back in March of 1993, I thought this band would have more of an impact on the music scene. Of the eleven tracks here, there are no bad tracks. Linda Perry's solo material hasn't even come close the to great music on FNB's debut. This is a must have for any rock collector.
