Editorial Reviews

After years of accumulating original songs and polishing their performance, TFIA was in the first wave of artist-owned labels when the CD revolution started and they produced Truth Is Stranger Than Fishin'. The three-time Grammy Award nominees were recently chosen by Performing Songwriter magazine as one of the 100 most influential independent artists in the past fifteen years, sandwiched between Phish and Widespread Panic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Are These People? August 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I will answer my own question - these people are quite possibly the best duo in America. These guys have been playing together for over 20 years and it shows - very together - you wonder how two guys can produce such a full sound.
My favorites are 'Not Fade Away' - a great rendition of the Buddy Holly clasic; 'The Day the Bass Players Took Over The World' - price some better speakers and watch out for this Napoleonic bass player; and 'Lucky Guy' - hilarious and touching. Buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their first CD (but not their first Album) November 25, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As a 10 year fan of Trout Fishing in America, I can unequivocally say that this is my favorite band of all time. I see them live whenever they come thru Texas.
My personal ranking of their 3 Adult CD's has "Who Are These People?" first, "Truth is Stranger than Fishing" second, and "Over the Limit" third.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! September 21, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album. Trout Fishing sometimes does some humor songs that you might not want to listen to over and over (like if the CD was in constant rotation) but that is not a problem on this CD. The only odd one is The Day the Bass Players Took Over the World and it is not disruptive (of a mood) to keep it out of CD rotation. The quality of every other song is unsurpassed. The best song in my opinion is "Not Fade Away" which sounds like a Buddy Holly tune but better. "Lost in Her Lips" and "Tongue Tied" are two other of my favorites but there are no sound bytes for them. The best test to see if you will like the album is listen to the clips for "Spider's Fence", "Cracked Up" and "Soon the Night". If you like those, they are pretty indicative of the album. "Soon the Night" is another that is especially good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Trout alblum December 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I think this is the best album the guys have ever produced. The only songs on it whih do not do much for me are "Ode to Big Blue" which is a not-so-hot rendition of an old Lightfoot song and "lost in her lips". Otherwise, it is a really great, free-spirited album and I encourage anyone who likes TFIA to buy this one first. For those who do not know TFIA, this is a great introduction to their music.
