Editorial Reviews

The third LP by Seattle band Harvey Danger is the sound of a radically transformed group. In place of their distorted alt/garage rock is a mellower, less caustic, more melodically adventurous sound, reveling in a classic pop sensibility that owes everything to the band members' evolving musical interests. The biggest change is the dominance of piano throughout, given pianist/guitarist Jeff Lin's classical training on the instrument. Other songs provide reminders that the band can still make with the catchy indie rock as well as traverse less easily classified musical terrain.

5.0 out of 5 stars The kings of the swinging moods are back in town October 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
To make a long story short, Harvey Danger broke up sometime after King James Version was released--5 years to the day (plus one) of this album's release; the members went their separate ways until deciding to play a reunion show on April 21, 2004, which thereafter brought about talks of a third album that would later materialize as 'Little By Little...'. Now, all during this "hiatus", HD's message board was still active, allowing for us diehard fans to foam at the mouth every time a band member would post letting us know of news of possible shows or possible third albums. And when everything finally became official, I found myself looking forward to an album's release more than I ever have before. On top of everything, too, it is a double-disc. (I should note that before Christmas of '04 they released an EP with the previously-available classic "Sometimes You Have To Work On Christmas (Sometimes)" that included a demo of "Wine, Women & Song". And I should also note they now have a new drummer, Michael Welke.)

The two songs that jumped out at me from the start were "Cream And Bastards Rise" and "Little Round Mirrors". "C&BR is comparable to HD's harder rock tunes like "Authenticity" and "Carlotta Valdez" (and includes the likely-to-be-often-quoted line 'you don't have to be a genius / but it helps to'), while "LRM" is more melodic and beautiful, all the while staying as catchy as possible. Since I'd already listened to "Wine, Women & Song" about a million times I had a hard to taking to it here, although it is a terrific song in any case. Two sleeper tracks that seem to grow on me more each time I listen to them are "War Buddies" and "Moral Centralia".

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding for both its politics and its music June 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even if you've listened to this album all the way through and hated every second, you should still buy it. Harvey Danger made a brave statement by releasing this album for free via BitTorrent, and should be rewarded for it.

However, I doubt you'll hate this album. Harvey Danger is so brilliant that even an angst-ridden goth-wannabe like me (I'm a huge NIN fan) has to smile and enjoy their cheeky cynicism and playful sound. I hate pop, as a rule, but this stuff is genius. The lyrics are clever, almost to a fault. The singer belts out his abundant, saucy one-liners with glee, and his biting humor is contagious. The music is a perfect match for the lyrics: snide, snickering, and absurdly catchy ("Flagpole Sitta" was not a fluke). The band has moved away from its more punk-rock sound on "Where Have All the Merrymakers Gone" and moved more toward subtle pop (example: "Wine, Women, and Song"), but have lost none of their edge.

If there's fault to find, it's in the production. It's clear that this album didn't benefit from an unlimited budget and top-of-the-line equipment, but most people probably won't even notice. Even most audiophiles should find the recording tolerable, particularly given the quality of the material.

5.0 out of 5 stars This music is buried treasure February 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Harvey Danger is a Seattle band that formed in 1992. Their claim to fame came in 1998 with the single "Flagpole Sitta." Though that is all they are really known for, these guys are no one-hit wonder. All of their offerings have been excellent, if not earth-shattering. They haven't brought anything incredibly new to the rock community, but their lyrics and tunes are definitely among the best. They deserve a lot more recognition than they've received. For this reason, Harvey Danger has released the first CD of this most recent album ("Little by Little...") for free on their website.

This may be the best offering of Harvey Danger to date. The tracks are not as heavy or rocky as their past offerings, but you've got to remember it's been five years since the debut of "King James Version." This band has evolved over the time and their music seems slightly more subdued and mature. They are not as calm as Coldplay, yet they're not as rowdy as they used to be.

As other reviewers have pointed out, "Cream and Bastards Rise" and "Little Round Mirrors" are probably the best tracks on this CD. "Cream and Bastards Rise" reminds me of the old Harvey Danger that we all know and love. It's a spunky, catchy tune with a rich dialogue that is just plain fun. "Little Round Mirrors" Is a masterpiece that shows how far this band has come. It reminds me of something Keane would do. It's one of those songs that will put you into a trance and leave you breathless at the close.

This album demands your ear and allegiance. It's a tragedy that this band ever fell off the earth. I suggest you buy the 2-CD set, but if you aren't convinced download the first off the Harvey Danger website. If you enjoy it, pass the goodness on to your friends.
