By Robert Moore HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 15, 2001
Format: Audio CD
My feeling about reissues and anthologies is: anything to get the band back in front of the past and present and future fans. I'll echo everything the other reviewers have said. A tremendous and tragically neglected band. I will add a slight observation. Whether you like the first couple of albums or the albums that followed those will largely depend on how you feel about Chris STamey versus Peter Holsapple. I liked Chris Stamey but utterly loved Peter Holsapple. So, for me, the two albums that followed the first two (i.e., the albums after Stamey left and Holsapple became the sole songwriter) were the better albums. I would also like to strongly disagree with the first reviewer, for whom THE SOUND OF MUSIC is their best album. I vastly prefer LIKE THIS to any other dB's album. Just one great pop song after another, including my two favorite dB's song s("Lonely Is (As Lonely Does" and "Love is for Lovers") and their lone hit ("A Spy In the House of Love"--though it was a hit for another band, and not the dB's).

It's too bad you almost already have to know who the dB's were before you dig into this disc of seminal material culled from demos and rehearsals referred to as the "great, lost dB's album". This is one of those packages that Rhino (as always) has done a great job on, but like the dB's main influence, Big Star-if you go out and get the Chris Bell Solo album or 3rd/Sister Lovers before you've heard the studio albums that established them, you're kinda lost without it. This is also a drag, because as far as I know, the super albums that the dB's made for Albion/CBS ('Stands for Decibels' and 'repercussions')and re-issued by IRS in the early part of the 90's are, again out of print. Please, do yourself a favor if you love good pop music and are interested in a band whose influence can be heard in bands ranging from R.E.M. to They Might Be Giants, bug your local record store for those first two albums. Better yet, write to Rhino for info on if they will also re-issue them, in which case this collection here makes a nift-o addition.

Yeah, yeah; this disc is swell, but listen; there is another db's disc called The Sound of Music, and it is just freaking fabulous, and it is just freaking out-of-print. One of the best records ever.It's just a shame that so much of their catalog is currently unavailable. Somebody! Help!

I have to disagree slightly with the first reviewer: this CD was the first dB's music I ever heard, and I loved it. So I don't think the listener will be lost without the studio albums. Of course it helps to know what the standout tracks are--I recommend starting with my favorite, track 23, The Death Of Rock, and track 26, Spy in the House of Love. Then listen to tracks 13-20 straight through, all of them are great. The other tracks I put on my mix tape were 4, 10, 11.
I'd say 13 great tracks on a grab-bag CD like this qualifies as 5-star material. One more comment on the dB's: the demo version of Spy in the House of Love on this CD is *way better* than the studio version on the Like This album. For some reason that whole album was produced in the manner of cheesy mid-80s Top-40 pop, while the Sound of Music album is great, sounding like the jangly pop made famous by early REM. But I digress.
Ride The Wild Tom Tom is a great CD.

Not only a good intro to the dBs, it's a great disc from start to finish.
