Raucous neo-bop instrumental frenzy from a band that could introduce some fresh ideas and sounds to a new generation. The name to tout is Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, who puts his imprimatur on these hyperactive, sax-driven jams in his role as co-producer. "Shag," "Naked Truth" (featuring singer Shawn Smith from the Seattle band Brad), and "Double Pot Roast Backpack" are standouts. --Jeff Bateman

I love this album, and since first hearing it, have become a fan of this group. Its sort of like acid jazz, but with more electronic help and modern sound. Has a real beatnick sort of feel. Their albums do contain some odd birdwalks, but the really good parts are deeply entrancing and beautiful, and the parts that rock a little harder are difficult not to dig. Skerik is a master of the electric sax, and the talent these guys have makes the album shine. Cool, man, cooool.

It's a thrill to hear someone fusing electronica with improvisation created in real time! When techno-clubbers get tired of watching two guys on stage twiddle knobs on machines as a live concert, and when jazz fans start looking for something new, they're all going to land here. And the textures, the textures-- the feel is someting that can only be created by those who care deeply about both kinds of music.

This album, although never actually widely distributed, has changed many rock, jazz and new-school afficionado's music-listening careers for ever. Critters is a super band, a group of musicians who lead many other bands as well, making the music they want to make without industry pressures. Quite the defining album this is.

Critters Buggin are one of the best, and relatively unknown, sounds to come out of the early 90s Seattle Grunge scene. This is their first of four albums and it is hard to say which one is the best as all of them hold their own (although Amoeba can be a bit difficult given its completely ambient styling). As other reviewers have written, they combine as many styles of music as one can imagine and turn them into a new sound.
This band also deserves respect in that they never went commercial with their music. They had hundreds of offers for their music to be in commercials and movies and they turned down every single one, preferring to stay true to the music they created. If you like them check out Nash Kato, Ponga, and Shawn Smith. Also, you can find the saxaphone player, Skerik, on the Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade cds.

This is Critters first full length album they released. I was a senior in high school listening to punk rock and grunge in 1994. I wish I had been listening to these guys. Cool album. Screw all that other "emo" they sling at you on the radio and MTV---these guys are the real deal and they were way way ahead of thier time. A great album all around.
