Biography

Bob Schneider is not new to this game. He has built his career as a working class musician and as a result has an institution of faithful followers all across the country with a mega-fan-base epicenter in Austin. There have been highs - the near-breakthrough success of 'Lonelyland,' and the "next big thing" hype that surrounded it. And lows - he was subsequently dropped by ...

If you're reading this because you just heard 40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet) and don't know about Bob, your're in luck! In addition to this pop-friendly brilliant single you'll receive an excellent introduction to the multi-talented Bob Schneider and his tremendous versatility. I dare you to not tap a toe to "Til Somebody Catches a Feeling". Elvis Costello is wondering why he didn't write "Everybody's Doing It". Latin rhythms are abound in crowd favorites Bombabaza and Tarantula. In between there's funk, ballads, and other crunchy grooves. If you enjoyed this album, I would move on to "I'm Good Now" or the classic "Lonelyland". The "Californian" has an edgier side to offer. Then the only question is how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?

Buy this album and go see Bob Schneider live for a special treat!

Having absolutely loved 2006's THE CALIFORNIAN, while cringing through most of last year's WHEN THE SUN BREAKS DOWN ON THE MOON, I was VERY interested to see what Bob Schneider would do next.
A six month delay of TARANTULA ~ now re-christened as LOVELY CREATURES ~ was not a good sign. And I'll be honest...upon my first listen, I was less than impressed; it was almost as if Schneider was trying too hard, like he was over compensating for the lack of melody on WHEN...by going the other way, but to an extreme. It just seemed overly light and fluffy.
However, after one or two more listens, I realized that LOVELY CREATURES is one of those discs that takes a few listens for the nuances to settle in and the surprises to rise to the top. And trust me, they're worth sticking around for!
The disc opens with the charming sway of "Trash." Schneider's lead vocal is easy-going and relaxed, while the arrangement is light and crisp (but solid). All of this only slightly masks the stinging lyrics ("I always fall for 'I love you'/The crack of the whip/The sting of the lash"). A nice way to kick things off!
Ditto "Realness Of Space." How can you NOT love a song with the opening lines "I want some eyebrows/Bushy and big/And full of bear fur/Sitting right on my face?" This kind of humor lifts the track as it lopes along, causing hips to shake and putting smiles on faces. I mean, who DOESN'T want "the Jackson's" and "the Osmond's from 1973?!?"
The opening chords of "40 Dogs (Like Romeo And Juliet)" remind me so much of the opening riff of Pink's "Who Knew" that every time I hear the song I think "God, this would be a great cover for her!" There's a casual tunefulness to the melody, and the lyrics just dance ("You're the color of the color part of the Wizard of Oz movie"...I mean, C'MON!).

I had never even heard of Bob until October, 2009...and then I hear this extraordinary song "40 Dogs" on the radio, which is not even the best song on the album ("Changing Your Mind" takes that prize). I immediately bought the album and was blown away....there are at least 7 GREAT songs on this album....part Cold Play, part David Gray, part Jack Johnson, part Zac Brown...what more do you need to know? Normally, you would expect an awkward voice or something holding back a person with this type of melodic and songwriting talent. This album will make him famous....if not there is a conspiracy in America. This album is better than 99% of what you are listening to and will become one of your all-time favorites. There are only two songs that you may not like. I have no reason to say this except for the fact that talent must be recognized...this is the American way! When I listened to this album several times, I had the same thought about "White Ladder" by David Gray....this is simply melodic genius....and why do so few people know about it? I just ordered two of his prior albums. Do the right thing and tell everyone you know about this album and then ask them to tell the world what they think about this album. If I'm wrong, I will never post again on Amazon.

My biggest regret is that I only found true appreciation for Bob Schneider's music only last year - and I've lived in Austin, TX for over 12 years and was a local radio station DJ for 5 of those years. I've always put off him off as a musician that I probably wouldn't like and now I can honestly say that he is one my favorite musicians of all time. HIs studio albums are great but if you want a true sense of what a versatile and brilliant singer and songwriter Bob is, than you must check out his live recordings (Live Frunk). He offers them off his website and they are absolutely addicting. He always records his performances and gives his audience a chance to purchase them right after the show and it's the best $15 you will ever spend. You not only get to hear his songs in their most purest forms but you also get a glimpse into his personality -- and he's a hilarious riot. Just a good ole Texas boy who loves music and we're just privileged enough for him to share it with us.

This is a stronger release than the last couple less formal releases from Bob (these were good too, with a different recording feel). He has definitely made some production improvements to songs in the studio, which put this CD somewhere closer to the realm of Lonelyland and I'm Good Now territory. I was glad to see that he put Tarantula and Bombonanza on a studio recording. They are still best experienced live, but he captured the essence of those songs well enough to put on a studio CD. If you're a Bob fan you can't go wrong and probably already bought this. If you are new to Bob you might start with Lonelyland and go from there.
