Format: Audio CD
This one is for the fans only; a good set of songs, but not nearly as wonderful as their finest albums ("At Yankee Stadium" being my favorite). The band displays their usual fun and ferocious approach to music, but the songs on here are just a notch below their best material. What you have is mostly Terry Adams writing the songs, with Al Anderson relagated to guitar playing and getting co-writing credits on just 3 tunes. My favorite tracks are "A Little Bit of Bad," "Ramona" and even the silly "Spampinato." NRBQ was a great band, both live in concert and in the studio, but I wouldn't recommend this one as the first purchase for someone wanting to hear what they sound like. Listen to the older 70s albums first.

NRBQ is (was?) one of the better American bands. I saw them a number of times after I bought a CD from the 'dollar' bin at a local music shop. I was amazed. their level of fun, A+ quality music talent caught me totally by surprise. this CD may not have been their best ( I always liked 'wild weekend') but the songs are singable, catchy and really do carry a 'message'. I work in the health field and smoking is such a tragedy for 3 or 4 reasons. and if you have ever gone in on a business deal or other kind of venture...oh yeah, you can get 'over your head' in a minute. and finally, someone said something about the ignorant music you hear on the radio nowadays...where is johnny cash? Dylan? buy this CD...good music...good message. Jako

I have been a fan of NRBQ for almost 30 years, ever since an army buddy turned me on to their interesting gumbo of music. I really enjoy Kick Me Hard, At Yankee Stadium, and Grooves in Orbit. Other albums (Tapdancing Bats) I don't care for. Yet every album will have a couple songs that are really enjoyable for one reason or another. But my two or three songs have a good chance to be completely different from the two or three songs YOU like. That's how it is with a group that plays such a wide range of musical styles. One reviewer decried the song "Spampinato" due to its simple lyrics. I found the song to be hilarious in its stupidity. Uh, that's a compliment. And "Girl Scout Cookies" came along around the same time as the Thin Mints. What timing. However, the rest of the album didn't really make me want to replay the disc. Some songs do grow on a person, but I didn't find much to make me stand up and take notice. I found it for $.71 (plus the ubiquitous $2.98 for p/h.) To me, that's about all it's worth.

A great mix of tunes. I notice that one reviewer bought it for "A Little Bit of Bad", which is a great song. But if you expect all the songs to sound exactly like that one you should be disappointed. They aren't a one trick pony.
