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.

The cover songs are all good and "Not Fade Away" is outstanding.

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".
Jennifer B. Barton
Both '...Fishin' and 'Over the Limit' offer fun songs that are excellent work-enhancers to play in the background.

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.

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.

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.

If stranded on a desert isle, that would be a must have record for the duration. I have always been a fan of the "power trio" but this duo is even better. The cover songs are all good and "Not Fade Away" is outstanding. There are a couple of concert videos of "Not Fade Away" posted on Youtube which will not disappoint you. "Prom Night in Pigtown" is terrific and "Lucky Guy" contains some of the best lyrics of the last 25 years. You will not be unhappy with this CD. Buy it and hope to get stranded......
