Biography

What happens when two great songwriters decide to focus their talents upon their favorite sport? You get the highly entertaining debut disc from The Baseball Project, Volume One: Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails. The album is the brainchild of Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn and the Miracle 3) and Scott McCaughey (Young Fresh Fellows, Minus 5, and R.E.M). The two musicians were longtime ...

Editorial Reviews

Following the success of the outfit's first album Vol. 1: Frozen Ropes & Dying Quails -- the band performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, was featured in the official World Series Program and Sports Illustrated among others -- baseball's sardonic rock chroniclers are back with Volume 2: High and Inside, an even more detailed look at the stories behind the stories of America's Favorite Pastime.

Their second season finds band members Steve Wynn (The Miracle 3, The Dream Syndicate), Scott McCaughey (The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows, R.E.M.), Linda Pitmon (The Miracle 3, Golden Smog) and Peter Buck (R.E.M.) drilling down even deeper into the Byzantine, lore-laden annals of baseball history. Volume 2 also includes guests spots by Craig Finn of The Hold Steady, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan, as well as Chris Funk and John Moen of The Decemberists, dispelling any fears of a sophomore slump.

4.0 out of 5 stars good sophmore followup to rookie outing April 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While not as good as their rookie season Vol 1, this album is a good follow-up. The album is a little more "country" than I would like, but there are enough powerpop hooks on this album. There is no disappointment in the stories, nostalgia and baseball history here. It's a fun album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good music and stories July 30, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Its the music on this edition of the Baseball Project that I really love, although the song topics are rich and rewarding too. The Please Don't Call the Twinkies song is ripping good fun, and the song about Bill Buckner, with Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan laying down some freak-out guitar wailing, is another highlight. My kids 5 and 3 dance in front of the stereo for the entire first side. Its a kick and a worthy follow-up to the first one.

4.0 out of 5 stars good batting average April 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What happens when a few baseball-addicted musicians get together to make an album? The answer is, a totally fresh and inspired collective called the Baseball Project. On this, their second album as a "supergroup," the Baseball Project delivers in the clutch again. As the both the band's name and album title would indicate, the songs are all odes to favorite players ("Ichiro Goes to the Moon" and "Buckner's Bolero", teams ("Don't Call them Twinkies"), or baseball traditions ("Chin Music" and "Fair Weather Fans"). Many of the songs are about players that these musicians grew up idolizing (such as Pete Rose and Tony Conigliaro), but one song also honors current players on the San Francisco Giants ("Panda and the Freak"). Even if you aren't a baseball fan, it's hard not to get caught up in the infectious spirit of these songs. The band's batting average remains high!

4.0 out of 5 stars extra bases September 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love the effort that was put into the lyrics. Music interesting, has good production and mix of styles. Buy the disc instead of downloading, the liner notes and lyric are worth it and you'll probably learn something you didn't know about the game.
