My husband has been a fan of theirs for a long time.

I liked Favorite Waitress the first time through (sometimes a bad omen--too easy) and with every listen I find more to love.

They always seem to do something new, even when making great Americana music.

Favorite Waitress will pull you in quick with its energetic, upbeat songs, and make you feel welcome just like the waitress you always hope will be working your table at your favorite diner.
But don’t get too comfortable - the FB just might have some bad news about that waitress - and - P.S.? Your horse has a broken leg.
Yep, if you listen to the lyrics, you’ll notice those catchy songs have rhymes like “the teachers slit my wrists/for every class I missed” and other less than wholesome imagery. And guess what? It’s the feel-good album of the year.
Welcome to the world of the Felice Brothers – a terrain populated by criminals, outsiders, mourners, and drinkers – but fear not – the FB will cordially guide you through it all. It’s an album bursting with beautifully twisted nursery rhymes, cleverness, and an overarching sweet dreaminess. “Beneath the swinging bridge with a cigarette/the heaven of heaven’s heaven ain’t as nice I bet,” Ian Felice sings on Meadow of a Dream, then just as calmly adds “I’d say I’ll see you later but I ain’t so sure/with all these talkers talking up atomic war.”
Literary but as unpretentious as they come, the Felice Brothers have long defied genre, and Favorite Waitress proves their wit, talent, and charm continues to grow. Yeah, I said charm. They sometimes refer to themselves as “dirtbags,” but if they are, they’re the kind of dirtbags you’ll feel you could trust with your life.
And when you’ve finished listening to Favorite Waitress you’ll end up in the same unlikely place you started – happily ever after. Just as their song Chinatown invokes the image of rewinding a tape of King Kong to bring the great ape back to life, the FB are able to conjure a peculiar but tantalizing antidote to the bleakness of the world we inhabit together.

If you're new to the Felice Brothers, this can be a decent album to start with. The songs are a pretty good representation of all of their work without rehashing their previous albums. There's the foundation of Americana. Lyrically rich songs. There are some catchy songs that might not leave you. Some moody and brooding ones that develop as the songs progress and the lyrics unfold. And, as always, some kind of experimentation on their part. Not experimentally new for music, but just experimental for them. They always seem to do something new, even when making great Americana music.

My favorites:
"Bird on Broken Wing." It's a lyrically sad song, but extremely catchy. The Felice Brothers do that lot, have you tappin' your toes to woeful songs.
"Meadow of a Dream." It's lyrically rich with a hopeful message I think ultimately. "I'll be Butch Cassidy and you can be the Sundance Kid!"
"Woman Next Door." Just a straight forward rocker, featuring Confucius and Henry David Thoreau :)

This album is absolutely a must have! It appeals to all audiences and age groups. The band has a knack for combining both nostalgic and innovative sounds. The lyrics are beyond incredible. Possibly the best group of lyricists of this time...

Below is the original review of Favorite Waitress, after many(!) listens I have
decided that this is their best album, I have upped the # of *s. The lyrics are
nothing short of brilliant and the music gets better with each spin, this is one
of my favorite albums of this year so far-give it time and you also will get on
the "Lunatic Express".
I bought the Felice Brothers self titled album (2008) on the strength of one song
I heard on a compilation CD--myself and others compared them with
The Band and Bob Dylan, they became my new favorite "Americana" group.
When Simone Felice quit the band for his own projects and shortly
thereafter TFB released the somewhat disjointed Celebration Florida album I thought
the band had lost it's premier songwriter and it was pretty much over--guess again!
I liked Favorite Waitress the first time through (sometimes a bad omen--too easy)
and with every listen I find more to love. Instead of thinking Dylan and The Band on
this album I am thinking John Prine fronting The Band because of all the endearingly
irreverent Prine-esque lyrics--Cherry Licorice and Woman Next Door
being the most obvious examples.
There is great diversity of mood on FW, it is book-ended by two of FB's most poignant ballads,
Bird On A Broken Wing (for Pete Seeger) and the closing Silver In The Shadow which shows
that Simone was not the only brilliant, "sensitive" songwriter in the group. A couple of songs
grate on me a bit especially Katie Cruel but as with all my favorite albums I will probably come
to enjoy the whole. As I listen more closely to the album it is the music that makes these
interesting, beautiful and often irreverent lyrics come to life. 4 1/2*s

I have been a fan of TFB or years. They are ever changing in their quest to be one of America's most unforgetable bands. Ian Felice's vocals are not only very emotional and heart felt but lyrically he isn't afraid to sing about anything. This is their most complete collection of songs to date. They should acquire a few new fans with this album.
