I, too, fall in with the group of people who love nostalgia from youth, so I naturally had to buy this. I've actually been trying to get my hands on this album for a long-time (before Mp3s were big), and was never able-to because it was really over-priced. Now that it's on Mp3 at a fair value, I was able to get it and it was everything that I thought it would be.

So, the opening theme is a-lot of fun, as we all know, but the other songs are surprisingly good and well-written. I would not go as far as to say this is an amazing album and that I listen to it constantly, but it's definitely pretty-good and stands on it's own.

If I was just reviewing the album, I would probably rate it at 3 or 4. It's good, but not the greatest. However, like most of you on here, you probably grew-up loving The Adventures of Pete and Pete and listening to it will take you-back to how much fun it was and remind you of some of your own adventures that may have been inspired by this show. That, my friends, is what boosts it to 5. It's the emotional value that it gives you, sparking and rekindling those memories.

Classic 90's Pete and Pete - the older I get, the more it all makes sense to me. As for the "Hey Sandy" debate, it's a song that deals with a girl and her dog; it has nothing to do with the Kent State shootings. I saw Mark Mulcahy sing it live recently and he did a whole ad-lib thing about a dog chasing and biting at him during the song. Don't be a "blowhole", buy this album.

Mark Mulcahy is in top form here with a tuneful, textured, and bittersweet collection of jangle-pop gems. The comparisons to early REM are inevitable (and I'm sure they drive MM to sheer annoyance)--and there's definitely that 80's college rock & psychedelic/60's tinged-feel here--but the band's joyful and precise instrumentation combined with Mulcahy's unique vocal delivery (wry, playful, and infectious) make this truly one of the best of the "Wild Mercury" pop genre. One of those albums you'll whirl over and over again without tiring of.

I happened across the track Waiting for October and thought it sounded familiar. Followed it back to this album and thought hey... I've bought albums for worse reasons. Really liking the many directions this album goes in, and looking forward to really exploring it in full detail.

I had recently updated my original review of the CD for Pete & Pete's twentieth anniversary (1993-2013) but I'm moving it over to this page now. Here is the review I wrote last time (with a few alterations).

Polaris was the musical centerpiece of Nickelodeon's The Adventures Of Pete & Pete, and in light of that wonderful show having reached it's twentieth anniversary, which is hard to believe, I thought I would write an updated review since my original one was showing some age. Polaris was the perfect fit for Pete & Pete because it's "Jangle Pop" approach was exactly what the show needed. This band was headed up by Mark Mulkahey and was a side project of his primary band Miracle Legion. I have listed the tracks below with a brief summary for each one (yes, I'm covering all twelve).

1. "Hey, Sandy" - This was the show's main theme song, performed here in it's glorious entirety. From what I've been told it was based on a real life shooting incident. Why that kind of song would be used for a children's television show is anyone's guess (that is, if what I've heard is true), but it is still considered by fans today to be "happily deranged".

2. "She Is Staggering" - A lovely little ditty about a young man who is madly in love with a beautiful young lady. It contains a kooky organ solo that was played in a scene featuring Younger Pete and Bus Driver Stu in the first episode "Day of the Dot".

3. "Waiting For October" - A song about the end of the world with an unusually light hearted tone. According to the song's lyrics this was supposed to have happened on October 28th, 1999, hence the title.

This is a trip back for adolscents who grew up watching early Nickelodeon television. I had forgotten about this show and the band until I saw a Youtube video of a reunion between Pete & Pete. Glad I rediscovered them all over again because it's really great music.

I have fond memories of watching the Adventures of Pete & Pete years ago. Although I was no kid, I enjoyed the weirdness of the show and how they always seemed to work in guest-stars into the series, like Michael Stipe of R.E.M., LL Cool J, Debbie Harry of Blondie, Julianna Hatfield, David Johansen of the New York Dolls, Kate Pierson of the B52s, Chris Elliot, Adam West, and the legendary Iggy Pop to name a few. But what I liked about the show most was the jangly theme song. How it took me this long to look for the guys behind the music, I can't explain, but I'm glad I did.
