CD Beachwood Sparks
Q (6/00, p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...This is the best American rock debut since Outrageous Cherry's eponymous 1st album last century....a '60s-style band that also listens to Beck and the High Llamas..."Magnet (1-2/01, p.44) - Included in Magnet's "20 Best Albums of 2000".Magnet (4-5/00, p.66) - "...Picks up the melodies, instrumentation, mutton chops, mother-of-pearl buttons and tassled sleeves of California country/rock, and the jacket fits nicely....It's pretty..."CMJ (4/00, p.44) - "...an extremely laid-back set of alt-country songs that are sometimes shot through with garage-y pep but that just as often bring to mind The Grateful Dead..."Mojo (Publisher) (5/00, p.88) - "...Another lo-fi assemblage of pleasantly unassuming country rock....sounding more like Poco or Sopwith Camel than Buffalo Springfield or the Lovin' Spoonful."
