Format: Audio CD
"Black and White" is a great collection of straight-ahead pop-rock songs, nearly all of them ridiculously catchy and infectious. Like the BoDeans' later effort,"Go Slow Down," this CD is all guitar rock -- if there are synths/keyboards, they are quite low key and used only for rhythm, effects (very few), or atmosphere.
Of the 12 songs, 7 are incredibly good and make the CD worth purchasing. For good or ill, the hands-down best song on the CD is the first track, "Good Things." If you are not tapping your toes and struggling to sing along with the chorus, check your wrist for a pulse or your toe for a morgue tag. Simply great pop-rock with a bittersweet edge. The BoDeans have written the quintessential unrequited pop love song.
However, even though the album reaches its zenith right out of the gate, there are still a good number of gems waiting for the listener. "Any Given Day," the fifth track, features a chorus riff and lyric that you will be singing for days after. I'm not sure if these guys missed their true calling in writing jingles for commercials, but I am glad they've done something with their gift. "For one dollar you can see angels call/For two dollar you can see your enemies fall/For three dollar, you can be king for a day." Trust me. You WILL be singing this!
"Do I Do" and "Bad for You" are more hand-clapping, car-dancing inspiring pieces. Both love songs, the first manages to be both bittersweet and sensually groovy. The second, "Bad for You," is a romp of a song, featuring simple (though not simplistic) lyrics and a (here's that word again) fabulously infectious rhythm.

If you had heard only a few Bodeans songs and wanted to start a collection of CD's, start here. The more you listen to this album, the more you think you are listening to a greatest hits ensemble. On the contrary, it is simply an album that has few pitfalls, and every song seems to breath the songs title. The rythyms, the vocals matched with powerful lyrics give each song it's own trademark. Symbolically, "Good Things" seems to serve as a preamble to the entire album, just as "Going Home" is an emotion filled close to a masterpiece. You can't help but become attatched to the Bodeans sound after experiencing "Black and White" Enjoy!

If you have to ask who the BoDeans are, you didn't listen to the radio much in the late 80s and early 90s. They had a lot of airplay. I'll preface this review by saying this: I DON'T buy many concert tickets. I figure for the price of one LOUSY seat at a concert I can get the BEST CD available. I took that to task with the BoDeans. I WANTED to see them live and I did. And BOY was I glad.

Black & White offers some really good music. Most people have heard at least a couple of songs from this disc alone. Paradise, Naked and Going Home received a fair amount of airplay. One of my favorites, the third cut, Black, White and Blood Red is a haunting, haunting thing - even moreso live.

When I listen to this disc from start to finish, which is just short of an hour, I come up with a different perspective. I like their lyrics, I like their music. I love the way they work it all together. The BoDeans were no flash in the pan. They had some good legs on 'em.

Absolutely their best album, which is saying a lot. Not a bad track on it.

This Wisconsin band's fourth album is a solid, hearty and wholesome effort without being stodgy. It is enjoyable throughout as the BoDeans have put together 12 tracks of fresh, easy-to-digest guitar-based rock.
The other main strengths evident here are their songwriting and their two vocalists. Singers Sam Llanas and Kurt Neumann have pleasing and distinctive voices.
Three of the more intense songs, "Long Hard Day", "Naked" and the single "Black, White and Blood Red" are certainly highlights.
Black and White is immediately accessible and does not seem to have a weak spot.

This is a great BoDeans album. "Good Things" is on here. But don't just listen to this song, listen to the others as well. It's a great album, but I of course enjoy all BoDeans music.
