Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

California-born lead singer Heidi Newfield proves to be Trick Pony's real trick on the debut album from this brash, talented, and road-tested trio. She summons up growling, yelping, howling Janis Joplin-like intensity on tough-but-tender cuts like "On a Night Like This" and "Party of One." She even holds her own with guest vocalists Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash on Trick Pony's cool rockabilly reprise of Cash's "Big River." Newfield's compatriots Keith Burns (guitar and vocals) and Ira Dean (bass and vocals) are decent musicians, but when Newfield fades into the background on second-rate songs like "Just What I Do," "One in a Row," (two of eight songs cowritten by band members), and "Can't Say That on the Radio" the results are far less memorable. On raucous songs like "Pour Me" and "Spent" they indulge in the sort of flashy, aggressive, louder-is-better overkill that typifies far too many young, rowdy retro-rockabilly/honky-tonk bands. On the other hand, when Newfield sinks her emotional teeth into more inspired band compositions like the brassy but vulnerable "Every Other Memory" and the introspective "More Like Me" (which features some great three-part harmony arrangements), Trick Pony back up their youthful verve and abandon with some real heart and soul. --Bob Allen

5.0 out of 5 stars This trio has talent! March 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
There's no doubt about it: Trick Pony rocks! Whether it's a male or female singing out the lead vocals, this CD is cram-packed with wonderful tunes. Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings have--you've no doubt read--joined up with the trio on "Big River." While I'll admit that those two are talented, and make a great combination with TP (NOT toilet paper), my personal tastes run toward the more contemporary songs. "Every Other Memory" is a wonderful ballad, and is followed up by a harmony-master piece "More Like Me." "Just What I Do" is my favorite, combining great harmonies with a nice, fast-paced beat. "Stay In This Moment" makes you want to grab your loved one and curl up beside the fire. "On A Night Like This" and "Spent" are also greats. "Can't Say That On The Radio" is a slightly-ironic-humored breakup song. Trick Pony may be new to the stores, but they're a legend in their own way, and they'll be here for quite some time, making us dance and cry (at the same time!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great rocking country from Heidi and the boys September 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a reminder of the kind of music with which Highway 101 shook up Nashville in the late eighties, Trick Pony are not quite as good as Paulette and the boys were, but they still have a lot going for them and should not be ignored.
The opening Pour me (as it's title suggests) is a great drinking song which really rocks, as most of the songs do. Lead singer Heidi shows she can be more than just a good-time rocker in a few songs, particularly on Now would be the time, a great country ballad, but it is the rocking songs that really matter here.
On a few songs, one of the men sing lead, but the style remains the same. This is great music for having a good time, far removed from the image some people have of country music. If you know somebody who think country is all about crying in their beer, this is one album that will shatter that image.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trick Pony? They should be called 'Holy Cow'! March 25, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Because that is what I thought when I heard this group and their toe-tapping first single "Pour Me". If this song does not make you want to move, check your pulse! "Party of One" is another women's anthem. (I saw an interview the band did and they said "Pour Me" was written as a women's anthem, I swear). The third track "Big River" is a fun romp, featuring Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. "Every Other Memory" is a haunting ballad - Heidi's voice will give you goosebumps. "Just What I Do" is a great song about what some of history's greatest figures did when they weren't "getting any". "One in a Row" has a great Carribean beat to it and is a great, upbeat, fun song, very much how Trick Pony is. "Now Would Be the Time" is another great ballad. Another notable track is the final "Not Hidden Track", it is hilarious outtakes from the studio and introduces the world to Heidi's 'snarf'.

This disc is a MUST HAVE!! Heidi's voice is phenomenal and Ira and Keith play with a real zeal that has been absent in country music as of late. They are kind of like the country Fleetwood Mac, I hope they will be around as long.

5.0 out of 5 stars HAVE SOME FUN June 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
So often we forget what one of the most important aspects of any form of entertainment should be: to let us have fun. Trick Pony is one of those groups that obviously had fun making this CD, and wants their audiences to do the same. Who can resist the drive of such songs as "Spent," their hit, "Pour Me," "Big River," and "On a Night Like This." The ballads, while nothing out of the ordinary, are delivered with verve and expression. The "Not So Hidden Track" is probably a little self-congratulatory and coy, but hey, again, they had fun, so why not share their laughter?
I don't think Trick Pony is a flash in the pan; as long as people like to have fun, who can deny this high-energy group the success they deserve?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great CD!! March 14, 2001
Format:Audio CD
[....] I love it!!!! The song with Johnny and Waylon("Big River")is a really good song. "One In A Row" is a cute song with a calyspo beat, about trying to drink someone's memory away. And "Can't Say That On The Radio" is about someone trying to call in a request to cuss out his girl because she did him wrong, but the request is turned down. "Spent" is my life story, about having your money spent before you get it. There are 3 "sappy" songs: "Every Other Memory", "Stay In This Moment", and "Now Would Be The Time"; which are really good songs also. "Party Of One" is a payback songs for all the time she was stood up by her man--great song!! "More Like Me" is about finally forgetting your ex. "Just What I Do" is a story about several famous people in history. If you like "Pour Me", then you'll like this cd. It's well worth the money.
