I first encountered Pigeon John when he opened up for Of Montreal in Jacksonville, Florida. In the middle of his set, I had to go to the merchandise table to pick up a couple of his albums. I was pleased to see that PJ's showmanship really carried through in this record.

This album has a lot of great energy. The hooks never get old or dull, and the lyrics successfully pull in even folks who aren't typically hip-hop fans.

Recommended for...

* Fans of fun hip-hop.

* Indie rock fans who are looking for something different.

* Someone looking for nice upbeat music to carry you through the day.

A Kid's Review on February 15, 2007
Format: Audio CD
I was just looking at the responses the people had say about Pigeon's newest album and I was entirely surprised to only see a few reviews. I was expecting more reviews for Pigeon John. The cd is aweosme. Just amazing. From beginning to end is non-stop great hip-hop.

The cd starts off with a nice intro "Welcome to the Show", getting you ready for the best cd you will hear. You have love songs, club/dance songs, fun songs, and even songs about John's love and confusion with God. The Summertime Pool Party ends with one of the greatest songs known to me, "Growin' Old". A wonderful song with Pigeon reminiscing about the great and innocent times of being young and chillin' with your friends.

I'm a pretty big fan of PJs but thats not to say if you have not ever herd of him you won't like him. Trust me, you don't need to have herd any other song he has done, just know by getting this album, you will have purchased one of the best albums ever. Pigeon's pool pary is the greatest. Trust me...

Pigeon John really came through with the Summertime Pool Party. This is leaps and bounds better than his previous albums. It sounds like he was breaking away from the earlier sound of LA Symphony. No filler at all on here, and you'll love the skits in between. From the moment "Do The Pigeon" started, I was hooked. "Money Back Guarantee" is your classic Pigeon silliness, and "The Last Sunshine" feat. J-Live is banging. Like the title suggests, this is a great summer type of record. Hell, you can get your boogie on to "Freaks, Freaks", or turn up the volume in your ride. check this out if you haven't already done so.

I've been a fan of Pigeon John for well over a decade. Back before he'd ever released material of his own, he was one of the more frequent guest MCs on albums by other west coast underground artsists. Listening to his cameos on works by artists such as Dynamic Twins, I.D.O.L. King, DJ Dove and LPG I grew to enjoy his quirky rap cadence and refreshingly optimistic outlook on life.

In 1998 he, along with partner bTwice, released the first (and thus far only) album from Brainwash Projects. Although it took some time, The Rise & Fall of Brainwash Projects became one of my favorite albums period. It follows in the vein of debuts from other west coast acts like the Pharcyde and Souls of Mischief in just being a slice of life from a couple of guys who love hip hop and girls but also take a moment every now and then to really make you think.

Pigeon John's solo work since then hasn't grabbed my attention quite as much. Pigeon John Is Clueless is less of a true album and more of a collection of solo tracks that he had recorded over a period of several years; thus it lacked true cohesion. Pigeon John Is Dating Your Sister is a much better effort but in my opinion it still does not stack up to TRAFOBP, mostly because it lacks the chemistry that can only be achieved by a couple of guys who'd been friends for 15 years.

That brings me to PIGEON JOHN AND THE SUMMERTIME POOL PARTY.
