Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A far cry from the cultish, soft-focus Americana of their first three records, Jubilee is this Los Angeles band's stomp-heavy three-ring circus. "APB" is the telling title of the first track, on which Grant Lee Buffalo plainly state that they are journeying into a more immediately gratifying unknown. The loss of bassist Paul Kimble permeates the sepia-toned guitars and ultra-tight rhythm section with an edge of electric hunger and immediate urgency. It serves singer Grant Lee Phillips and drummer Joey Peters well, from the hazy country psychedelia of "SuperSloMotion" to the open-armed sultriness of "Come to Mama, She Say." Rocking yet ethereal, surreal yet visceral, Jubilee continues the band's tradition of off-the-beaten-track sounds, only now everyone--including E of the Eels, a harmonica-wielding Robyn Hitchcock, and Michael Stipe--is invited to the party. --Sara Scribner

4.0 out of 5 stars Electric Fun, Rock Jubilee November 6, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Electric Fun-
This CD exhibits a more "fun & electric" approach than we see on earlier Grant Lee stuff, it is still very moving and emotional as always. Oddly enough this CD may actually be a safe place to begin on the Grant Lee tour if you are more into straight ahead rock, it feels strange saying that. There are a few tunes that will be immediately gratifying, which is not always the case with Grant Lee, the Copperopolis CD requires dedication and repeated listens to find all the gold within, where as Jubilee has some immediate payoffs which will help those introducing themselves into sticking around to uncover the whole work. I love this CD and think it has a real chance of bringing a more diverse audience into the Grant Lee Buffalo arena.

5.0 out of 5 stars great cd! December 17, 1999
Format:Audio CD
i pretty much bought this cd because i liked the song "truly, truly", and figured it was one of those albums that you play a couple times and throw away. Boy was I wrong! This album is great. Every song on it is superb....this is an album for anyone who likes good rock....this album is like a 60's band in the 90's which is great; all i can say is buy this album! it's money well spent!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album defies all attempt to review.... March 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What is there to say about Grant Lee Buffalo than WOW?! What else is there to say about "Jubilee" other than WOW?! The cd opens with "A.P.B" which contrasts heavy guitar riffs with a gorgeous chorus line sung in absolutely stunning falsetto. "Seconds" is the next track followed by "change Your Tune", both containing excellent pop/rock melodies combined with smart lyrical work. "Testimony" is track four and has to be the greatest guitar single ever produced. I have listened to this track over 100 times and it still makes me shiver. See for yourself. "Truely, Truely" is lucious while "superslowmotion" brings back memories of Copperopolis, allbeit the more positive side. "Fine How'd Ya do" is great while "come to mama, she say" is heartbreaking aching especially when sung in such angelicness by Grant Lee Philips. "8 Mile Road", "Everybody needs a little Sanctary" and "My, My, My" all compliment each other with rockin good tunes accompanying great poetic sensobilities. Sanctuary can, PERHAPS, sounds slightly schmalzy at times by such things are forgiven when the listener gets to hear the duet between Grant Lee Philips and Michael Stipe from "R.EM". "Crooked Dice" is great while "Jubilee" sounds like Split Enz on Acid. The album ends with "The Shallow End" which is a masterstroke, just like the rest of the cd. Grant Lee Buffalo are progressing with utter confidence and an almost incredible nack at giving their listeners something to lie back and bask in. I AM LOST FOR WORDS!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not their best either. May 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This GLB release shows the band expanding their sound from the sparse, moody first three albums to a more brighter, uptempo sound here. Paul Kimble is gone, and I miss his prodction style. It's ok for the band to try new things, but not at the expense of their uniqueness. GLB sounded like no other band in the early to mid '90's, and on this album while still they have some fine songs, the sound is also more generic . If it wasn't for Phillps's distinctive voice, this version of GLB doesn't sound all that different from dozens of other pop-rock bands out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most rockinest they've ever been. August 23, 1998
Format:Audio CD
One of the best albums of the year. If your expecting another Mighty Joe Moon you'll be extremely displeased. If your expecting excellent songwriting with a hard rocking tune then you have found your album. Excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, but not as good as Fuzzy and Mighty Joe Moon November 19, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When I heard GLB was going to get loud and in-your-face I was excited. Copperopolis was solid but a bit too low-key in spots. The result here is a very good album, but curiously it seems as though GLB is wearing it's influences more plainly on its sleeve: Crooked Dice and Come too Mama sound way too much like something off of Tom Petty's Wildflowers. There are solid highlights:8 mile road, APB, Testimony. They definitely seem to be going for a hard country-rock feel here, but I was hoping for more of the stylistic variety of the first two albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing back Folk to the 90's April 25, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm truly hooked on GLB. It was "Testimony" on the radio that made me go looking for this CD. This band makes me think of the "New" BAND. The folksie "Come to Momma" and "Sanctuary" makes me think of tunes that Dylan wishes he'd played. Hey, and I can understand these guys. I definitely felt like I have a piece of Americana, perhaps even from the Heartland when I'm listening to these tunes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than their last two albums by far June 23, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Grant Lee Phillips is one of the most talented musicians in the world today. As a group they've put out four of the best albums of the 90's. I've seen them live twice and as a three piece band they kick butt. All of the wierd insturments used and Grant Lee's lyric's make this cd better than any other I've bought this year.
