5.0 out of 5 stars Great record September 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD for a song called "She". I had heard it in episodes of TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Dawson's Creek, and I loved it. It was mellow, had a good beat and contained some great chord progressions that created a wistful atmosphere. The whole CD is terrific. There are some upbeat tunes like "Cold to the Touch", and some sexy, bluesy tunes like "Simone". Many of the songs have those addicting R&B drum beats and jazzy bass lines. It's completely worth a listen!

3.0 out of 5 stars I Says, Give it a listen May 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to GRAVITY, SUFFERING, LOVE & FATE left me with some very distinct feelings. The first was that I'm beginning to miss the 90s like all hell. The second was that it was little wonder this band only lasted one album: they do a lot of things right here, but they fail in the critical area (from the standpoint of marketing, anyway) of establishing an easily definable sound. Music executives like simple labels, and so, unfortunately, does the public, but Louie Says doesn't fit too snugly into either the alt-rock or indie box, and they sure as hell ain't pop. My guess is that this contributed some to their untimely demise.

To start with, this album is known for the single "She", which was featured to great effect on an episode of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER called "Repitle Boy", which is of some personal import to me, as I work at the special effects company that made the reptile-demon. (Actually, he hangs near my desk in all his 20-foot reptilian glory, slowly dry-rotting as his silicone stuffing gives up its ghost). It also showed up in DAWSON'S CREEK, and it's no accident that these were two of the seminal shows of the 90s. Louie Says seems to have captured a bit of the spirit of that decade in this album: its wistful, sly, black-humorous, self-consciously profound, profoundly silly, self-piteous, ironic, clever and sexy. In some ways - not many - it's reminiscent of a band which followed it, Maroon Five, but with a funky rather than an R & B undercurrent, and sound far more experimental than pop. There's a tinny, somewhat underproduced feel here which is kind of appealing for its rough edges, even if it occasionally sounds like it came out of a garage studio.
