If you loved their first album or are checking these guys out for the first time, this album will not disappoint.

Every song is pretty good for the most part, really no filler songs, everything sounds good and catchy.

This was the piece that completed my collection of the Roger Clyne & Co. oeuvre, as of Dec-05. I'd resisted it for the better part of a decade, after the guy who turned me onto The Refreshments in the first place told me it wasn't worth the effort required to place it in your CD player and press "play."

Well, I can now say that such a criticism was clearly over the top, though I could understand his frustration to an extent. My biggest bitch about this whole effort is that, much unlike FFBB (or any Peacemakers effort), it didn't seem like they had fun making this one, and if they did, they certainly failed to sell me on that. I can just about hear a record company suit breathing down their necks throughout the whole thing. On "Tributary Otis," which for better or worse opens this CD, I imagine someone in the control room asking "Uh, could you make it sound more 'Gin Blossoms-y?'" Listen to that track, and follow it up with "Follow You Down" from GB's "Congratulations I'm Sorry," and there you have it.

Lyrically (a very strong point of FFBB), the highs are high, and the lows low. I find it pretty much laughable to hear a band quote lyrics from their first CD on their second, but they did it on "Fonder & Blonder" - see "Down Together" from FFBB. It makes me think they'd run out of ideas rather quickly.

I find the strong tracks as good as anything RC has put out there (IMHO: "Wanted," "Heaven or the Highway," "Preacher's Daughter," "Broken Record"), and the weaker ones not so much "bad" as, well, completely non-offensive yet equally forgettable music.

Taken out of its context, I believe TB&FH to be a good (though well short of great) collection of fun, rollicking tunes. However, as a follow-up to FFBB, which has held "Desert Island Disc" status to me since its first spin, it's a textbook sophomore letdown.

Thankfully, Roger rocks on with the Peacemakers. I commend their entire catalog to your listening.

"The Bottle and Fresh Horses" continues in the same path where the Refreshments left off from their first album "Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy". Although this album isn't as much fun as the bank robbing sound you find in their first album, it still rips a meaning to the heart, it has more of traveling sound by horse from bar to bar looking for the right woman. Yeah! sounds great this album deserves more of a 4 and a half stars rather than just 4, but falls short of 5 because of their great first album. Every song is unique, from the meaningful lyrics found in "Sin Nombre", to the bashing of an ex-girl in "Fonder & Blonder", not to mention a catchy-twangy "Horses" song, and the stop dead at a bar depressed sound found in "Una Soda". The Refreshments have it all and got better in their lyrical background on this one, overall a damn good cd. Ride away with this one!

When I first played this cd I was kind of disappointed. It was not as partyish as FFB&B. Then the more I played it the better and better it sounded and now I can say without a doubt that this cd is definitely better than their first one. "Heaven or the Highway out of Town" and "broken Record" are two of the best songs anyone have ever written. Check out this lyric, "So you took that other guy on your caribean cruise while I stayed home and cried into my bottle of pills." Now *that's* great writing! Even though The Refreshments have since broken up do yourself a huge favor and buy both cd's while you still can. btw, the Peace Makers cd has just come out and I got it two days ago. I have the double cd with the second one being live and it sounds good although I'm still growing into it. If you're expecting The rEfreshments, don't. The Peace makers cd is definitely more subdued although still full of great writing.

True talent! How a band like this could not have hit the big time after their first (and only) two albums is beyond me. This is quite possibly my favorite CD of all time. It's an incredible shame to see a band like this break up after an "unsuccessful" second album (especially when I look at some of today's "talent"). The music is a bit more on the serious side than the first record, but the boys come through with incredible sound and lyrics that stick in your mind. Any fan of music would do well to add this one to their collection.

The first Refreshments album is without a doubt one of my top 10 favorite of all time. Maybe it's becuase of that I expected so much out of this one, and I feel just a little let down. Played back-to-back, you notice there's more instrumentation and a way different production feel on this one, and it seems much less spontaneous. Seems the producer brought every level up but lost that good fun no-frills sound in the process. Some songs I'll usually skip, like Broken Record (annoying) but others are very catchy, listenable. These guys write good hooks. And "Fonder and Blonder" has got to be one of the most wicked ex-girlfriend songs ever. If you've never bought a Refreshments disc, try the other one first. If you have, this is a good follow-up but don't expect to be bowled over.

A close runner-up to FFBB, this is an excellent CD. Although out of the gate, Tributary Otis sounds almost like a Gin Blossoms single, the Refreshments get back to business with classic-sounding barn-burners like Preacher's Daughter and Wanted, before settling down a bit to my favorite on the CD, Sin Nombre, which once again brings you back to the Southwest feeling saddle-sore like the song's cowboy. The rest of the CD is great.

It's too bad the Refreshments broke up, but Roger Clyne is still rocking with his band the Peacemakers and putting out great music, upholding the quality in the Refreshments' work.

Still, you can't go wrong with either of the Refreshments CD's, and The Bottle & Fresh Horses is a superb listen.
