Editorial Reviews

James Dewees is Reggie and the Full Effect. That much we now know. For a long time the question hovered around the music industry, Who is Reggie and where did he come from? The confusion was understandable since Reggie albums were filled with skits, guest character appearances, and the ramblings of crazy crack heads. Reggie's last studio album, 'Under The Tray', threw everyone for a loop with the emergence of a character named Paco, an ex-con turned rock star. Truth is James Dewees is not only Reggie, but also keyboardist for seminal rock band The Get Up Kids. So we also know James can bring a serious side. Fontana. 2005

3.0 out of 5 stars Listen And Decide For Yourself.... May 22, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Review by Tyler Wagnon:

Reggie and the Full Effect is a strange entity. Main man James Dewees was a full time member in The Get Up Kids and Coalesce, while also appearing on albums by Ultimate Fakebook, The Casket Lottery, New Amsterdams, and New Found Glory. Guitarist Cory White is currently in The Esoteric and was in Coalesce as well. Drummer Ryan Pope was a member of The Get Up Kids and is currently in New Amsterdams. Bassist Rob Pope too was a member up The Get Up Kids and is currently in both Koufax and New Amsterdams. Not to mention guest vocal spots by Benjamin Perri of From Autumn to Ashes and Sean Ingram from Coalesce.

All that information probably doesn't help you any because those bands play such different styles (emocore, math metal, emo, hardcore, indie rock), and to be honest, the influences don't shine through much at all.

Anyway, Reggie and the Full Effect's sound is schizophrenic to say the least. Some songs are pure blissful pop punk, some are electronic dance songs, and there is even a metal track on here as well as an industrial sounding song.

The point is there is no point. Reggie and the Full Effect is a strange band with a sense of humor and for most people they are love em or hate em. The only real way to know is to listen to it and find out for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Brilliant! February 2, 2006
Format:Audio CD
most reviews ive read keep saying that the older stuff is way better, but i disagree. ive heard his older stuff a while ago and thought it was alright. but i got this album and let it grow on me, what makes it so great is the synth of his microkorg mixed with those heavy guitars. its like nothing ive ever heard. u can tell he musically progressed too. its more along the lines of Apocalypse Wow! and Fellowship of the Bling sounding (if you want to compare to older stuff) and of course The Common Denominators and Fluxuation return. I first saw them with alkaline trio in 03 then again this past fall with alk3 again and mcr (who was way overrated) reggie was way better than them. alkaline was great tho

5.0 out of 5 stars holy sh*t March 31, 2005
By Tim
Format:Audio CD
just for the dude below me sean ingram is the singer for Coalesce not FATA anyway holy sh*t i was blown away by this album i just got it yesterday and have been listening to it ever since. since i thought the last album was trash(Under The Tray) since it reminded me of some teenage poppy bullsh*t) but this album shows alot of prgression im guessing maybe because of his divorce but i still hear some old reggie and parts of the songs. Overall this is a great album for past and present reggie fans but dont spend a sh*t load of money ordering this online go to bestbuy and save a few bucks

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best record Mr. DeWees has done. September 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I absolutely agree with the previous review by Jeff Palermo.

Reggie and the Full Effect was a joke that came to fruition in the basement of a house in Kansas City that DeWees shared with Robby and Ryan Pope of The Get Up Kids. In fact one of the very first songs recorded in that basement was Dwarf Invasion which didn't make it to an album until his 2nd record. In fact the original recording was used from those basement sessions.

DeWees is a classically trained musician who is great at writing that musical hook that draws you into his catchy songs, but not until this album did DeWees learn how to write musically and lyrically. Get Well Soon is a great song!!! The early records are fun for a listen and a laugh once in a while, but this album is a record you will listen to for the rest of your life and still enjoy it. Like most great records, sometimes it takes a few listens before you really get it and this is one of those albums. If you don't get it at first, put it away for a while and come back to it. You may find this to be one of your favorite records in quite a while!!

And for those of you who are into this because of My Chemical Romance aka the worst rock cliche ever to grace a stage... Then you probably won't get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seriously. May 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This CD is pretty out there as far as Reggie and the Full Effect is concerned.

The CD proves that Reggie can write songs that have to deal with subjects other than running away. These songs have sincere emotion in them, much unlike anything RATFE has produced before. Caving and Get Well Soon are both excellent examples of this.

The CD has it's share of catchy pop tunes as in the other Reggie CD's...however, they are in far fewer quanity on this record.

Overall, I trully enjoyed this CD. It's not anything that could win Record of the Year... but it contains some of Reggie's best work. Definity a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is bloody good April 11, 2005
By J. Wood
Format:Audio CD
Well I just have to say, I saw Reggie last night in Chicago with Eisley(another fantastic band might I add) and NFG, and Reggie just played fantastic. Most of the songs they played were off this album and they played them amazingly. First off, the first song really hooked me in considering I didn't think there would be any screaming on this album, nor did I think there would be the use of the keys with metal riffs, but what an awesome combination. This entire album is worth checking out, but some favorites of mine here are What The Hell is Contempt and Playing Dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reggie is back and better than ever March 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This has been one of the most anticipated releases in the punk genre this year. Reggie is back, this time with a new twist... this cd has a strange combination of metal riffs, more screaming (thanks to Sean Ingram, vocalist for Coalesce), and perfectly flowing keyboards. Don't get me wrong, this is still the awesome Reggie we know and love, but he has definately grown up a little. If you're a newcomer to the Full Effect, I would recommend you buy "Greatest Hits '84-'87" first. Here's a few of his aliases that have returned on this cd: Hungry Bear, Common Denominator, oh, and the drunk girl from the Get Up Kids show is back, too. This cd is a very worthy buy if you're into a wide range of music all combined into one cd. reggie (james) definately hits the spot with this album.
