5.0 out of 5 stars Langford's Masterpiece April 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Too Slim and the Taildraggers
Shiver
Underworld Records
[...]

By James "Skyy Dobro" Walker & Amy Walker

12 songs; 54:00 minutes; Library Quality

Styles: Patented Too Slim Music; Contemporary American Rock and Roll; "Alt-Country-Dirty-Rock with a Blues-Vibe"

Earworms: they are the songs and phrases from songs that get repetitively stuck in my head. But, the songs I hear are ones already in existence. Way beyond me is Tim "Too Slim" Langford who has creative vision to hear songs that do not yet exist. Slim begins hearing music in its embryonic stage and eventually knows what a song should sound like before it is ever recorded. For example, Langford told me he could hear Curtis Salgado singing "Everybody's Got Something" before he ever invited Curtis to sing the lyrics.

"Shiver" with its 12 original songs is Langford's most fully realized and most ambitious project yet. And, with 15 prior CDs, he has had lots of practice. Too Slim explained, "As the songwriter, I end up hearing the songs in a complete way [before they are recorded]." On previous CDs, "I ended up making compromises" due to hired producers and geographic distances preventing complete control. "On this one I felt like I knew exactly what I wanted, and I got it!" The album was produced, engineered, recorded, mixed and mastered in Langford's home of Seattle WA enabling Too Slim to be there everyday. Plus, co-producer Conrad Uno at Egg Studios "had really good ears, and we hit it off like that! We were just always on the same page."

Demonstrating Langford's growth, maturity, and musical mastery, "Shiver" contains many firsts for a Too Slim and the Taildraggers CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost an 11 (out of 10) May 11, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Too Slim & the Taildraggers for a while now, but it is the progression of the last couple of albums that have made me more of a fanatic. I have come to expect more out of the band and "Too Slim" with each album, and the last couple have not disappointed. Shiver continues this upward progression and I'm not sure what they will be able to do for an encore but I can't wait to find out. I have listened to this disk straight through about 5 times since I got it last week and it is still growing on me. The title track is, in my opinion, the best on the album and one of the best in their entire catalog.

I have one regret and that is that I have never been able to see this group live (I live on the other coast). The live tracks that they have released clearly show that they are probably at their best live, in a smokey bar with the amps turned up to 11. Shiver in particular has that feel to it, horns blasting, etc. Maybe someday they will release a "live" studio recording, similar to what the Black Crowes have done.

With that said, if you are a Too Slim fan you have to own this and if you aren't yet, Shiver should turn you into one.

5.0 out of 5 stars She Sees Ghost But Where Was I....... July 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, I'm Embarrassed to admit it but..Where have I been...? I bought Shiver by TST on album cover art alone and am I happily surprised! Seems they have been around for ages and I somehow missed them. Excellent mix of Rock & Blues Rock all dressed up and ready to go. Seems they draw from a great background of Rock & Blues from the past. Bands like Savoy Brown, Early Elton John(I know, but the rocker stuff), Marshall Tucker, Jimi(last name not necessary is it), Clapton, ZZT, SRV and a few more. That's not a knock on TST, it's a compliment. Vocals are great, no, I mean GREAT and Langford's guitar work is better than excellent. The B3 of Joe Doria could not be better, he is just a great one and never over plays, just seems to know exactly how to dress up and decorate a song. Not one week song on this CD as far as I am concerned. Shoot,the vocals and tune "Shiver" could have been on any album back in the Big Hair-Glam Rock days and done very well, that one caught me off guard. I absolutely love "She Sees Ghost" lyrics are excellent and good pick me up tune, gets you going and fun. "Everybody's Got Something"(vocals by Curtis Salgado are perfect and this might be the song of the CD but then there's "She Sees Ghost" and no that's no joke), "Daddies Bones" is a Great One(reminds me of a riff by New York's great Guitarist Chad Sonenberg of now defunct bands "The Fool" & "Janet Speaks French", if you never caught Chad live well he was absolutely amazing), "Inside Of Me"(Maybe this is the song of the CD, oh there's Joe again on the B3),"Shiver" and then ends with "Bucerius", what a fun and cool way to end the album, reminds me of the beginning of a Surf Movie starting with someone talking over it as it begins....plus part of the song track reminds me of a Fave "Beatles" song named "Anna".

5.0 out of 5 stars Shiver Me Timbers! This is good stuff! August 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous recording! I don't know how to qualify that statement other than to say I am a music junkie and have been for more than 35 years. I typically don't write reviews since my musical taste, like everyone's is personal to me. After listening to this recording, I felt compelled to let fellow blues rocker fans know that the music Gods dropped a golden egg on the planet with this recording. I saw this band in a blues club in suburban Chicago about 7 years ago and was impressed with the band and especially the musicianship of its leader Tim (Too Slim) Langford. At the break, they talked with the crowd and were genuinely very appreciative of the opportunity to play live. Since then I have followed the band and try to listen to their new recordings when they come out. Based on that history, I purchased Shiver thinking that is would be as good as their previous recordings with some twists that help distinguish it from previous recording catalogue. I have to tell you, I was blown away with how good this recordings is. I played it again as a reality check to make sure it wasn't a case of 'new music' shivers. The 2nd spin confirmed my original take that this band put its all into this recording and was hell bent on making a serious musical statement. If you are a blues rock fan, do yourself a favor and give this disc a listen and then do what you can to support this band going forward. With the support of new fans, this band will hopefully remain on the music scene for a good long time as their best work is yet to come.
