I hadn't listened to this for awhile until a few days ago and was immediately reminded how much I love this CD. Even the songs that aren't my favorites are still good songs. The Badlees are straight forward rock music with a little country thrown in occasionally. Angeline is Coming Home is the most recognizable cut from River Songs but I also love Bendin' the Rules, Song for a River, Queen of Perfection and I Liked You Better When You Hated Yourself. Liked You Better and Queen of Perfection have catchy melodies mixed with darkly funny lyrics. Song for a River is a long, slow song with the verses spoken instead of sung as it tells a story.

Pete Palladino has a strong, vibrant voice and the whole band are excellent musicians. River Songs is a great CD.

Much like the wellknown band, The Badlees focus on rootsy rock with occasional touches of country instrumentation and strong melodies. Add to that a more than passing similarity to Darius Rucker's voice in Badlee lead vocalist Pete Palladino and you have the recipe for something Blowfish backers are likely to enjoy.

What makes the Badlees different from H&BF is the unusual topics often covered in their tunes, from a mental patient's return home ("Angeline is Coming Home"), fantasy revenge on a nagging spouse ("Queen of Perfection"), and a drinking buddy's discontent when a mate finds health food religion ("I Liked you Better When You Hated Yourself").

Best tunes here are the brother asking for mercy for his black sheep sibling ("Bendin' the Rules"..which features a wailing guitar break), radio singles "Angeline is Coming Home" and "Fear of Falling", the peppy "Gwendolyn" and the deliberate trashiness in "I Liked You Better When you Hated Yourself" with lines like "You kicked your bad habits, you're in perfect health, But I liked you better when you hated yourself".

"Ore Hill" and "Song for a River" are two of the lesser tracks on the disc.

Bottom Line: If you enjoyed Rucker and company's CRACKED REAR VIEW you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy. You surely can spare the penny it's going for used.

If you appreciate good blends of vocals & music- try 'em. I have seen them live and the lead vocal is excellent. The rest of the country is missing out on some good ol' band playing.

Got this one from a friend- I did not expect much but was really overwhelmed with the inventive songs and great playing. I play guitar with some buddies, and this one got a lot of attention! If you enjoy Hootie, really like Edwin McCain and the like, these guys are right down your alley. Definitely get this release, and keep your eyes open- a new release should come this year. enjoy!!

The album has a Hootie and the Blowfish sound, with a down home rock flare. Some of the tracks are for the mature, with its comedic play on words and brash lyrics. However, all cuts are excellent toe-tappers. If you EVER get a chance to see them live, do it. I only wish they were around Lancaster more often.

Badlees' break-through album. "Unfortunate Result of Spare Time" showed an increasing musical and lyrical maturity (especially "Tore Down Flat in Jackson" and "Laugh to Keep from Crying"), that culminated in "River Songs" fantastic array of enjoyable and intelligent songs. This band has some of the best writing and most versatile musicians on the current rock scene. The guys show a range here that they will expand even further on their next self-produced gem "Amazing Grace" and their Ark 21 release "Up There, Down Here." "Fear of Falling" was one of the best songs of the mid 1990's and "bendin' the rules", "gwendolyn", and "ore hill" keep it great company. "Angeline Is Coming Home" gained national attention on the radio, and even hit the airwaves in Germany! "Angels of Mercy" is one of the songs that showcases Bret Alexander's brilliant ability to turn a clever lyrical phrase that evokes more than mere attitude - it colors the song with depth of character and makes it come alive to the listener. These guys should be better known. They probably will be.
