Like one reviewer below, I too would listen to this album back in high school and dream of beautiful women. I see no shame in that. It's an album that induces such hopefulness (or wishful thinking), and that's saying something for it. No it's not "Exile on Main Street" but it's in that vein for those of us who lived and breathed the early alt-rock movement, before crass commericialism sucked all the life out of it.
I'll conclude this diatribe by urging Cracker to create another album this good. I know they'll never read this, but in case someone who knows them does, please pass on the message.
I remember thinking, immediately after putting this thing in my discman (damn am i dating myself), that this should have exploded with hits. Almost every song here is easily singable, catchy, contagious, fun, perfect material for radio play, even then. Songs such as Nostalgia, Sweet Potato, and Eurotrash girl (why the HELL is this a only a bonus track instead of a legitimately listed song) could easily have been singles. I won't get into too many Rolling Stones comparisons, as many have made, but the influence is definitely here. The fun, bluesy, steady upbeat atmosphere on this record certainly recalls many moments of Exile on Main Street...even though there is much more influence on the debut (list to Honky Tonk Woman, then listen to Mr. Wrong). But I digress.
Now, if you're familiar with Cracker, chances are you are familiar with this album, or at least have an idea of what to expect. But since you are shopping and viewing this product (maybe because you, like myself, heard Low, maybe you are familiar with David Lowrey's solo career, or maybe randomly own a different Cracker release), I'll try and outline it for you.
Before I do that, however, let me mention that this was a bit of a black sheep upon it's release.Read more ›
