Album Review

Blender is an appropriate title for this CD, because it contains a blend of new material and songs that had already been heard on the Murmurs' 1997 release Pristine Smut. The alternative pop-rock duo probably would have been better off recording nothing but new material, but for those who discovered the Murmurs with Blender, it was quite an introduction. Sometimes recalling the Go-Gos, this album is power-pop heaven. Heather Grody and Leisha Hailey favor a waifish, girlish style of singing, and neither of them will win any awards for having fantastic ranges. But then, a great range isn't a prerequisite for delivering first-class power-pop, which is exactly what fun, melodic offerings like "Underdog," "Sucker Upper" and "La Di Da" are. Comparisons to the Go-Gos are inevitable, and in fact, the Murmurs wrote "Smash" with former Go-Gos Jane Wiedlin and Charlotte Caffey. However, this isn't to say the Murmurs don't bring a recognizable sound of their own to the material, most of which were produced by either k.d. lang or Matthew Wilder (who produced No Doubt's Tragic Kingdom). If you like your rock & roll laced with a ton of pop, Blender would be an excellent purchase.

Customer Reviews

Awesome!!

I love this album. I listen to it all the time! Leisha Hailey has an awesome voice.

Nicely done Pop-Folk

I originally purchased this album because a friend reccomended it. Then I knew Leisha Hailey from The L Word. It is a Nicely done, professional album. It has annoyingly Poppy moments of repititious chourses, and bridges that are predictable, but overall it is a nice listening album. I liked the message in most of the songs especially," Sucker Upper". Its a neat little tune with catchy lyrics and tag. Most of the songs are catchy and memorable. I frankly don't know why it didn't get more airtime on popular radio. I usually enjoy more Alternative/Punk/Angry Lesbian kind of music, but overall I wasn't dissapointed with The Murmurs, Blender. I reccomend taking a listen to Leisha Hailey's next band, Gush. Similar with an edge. Over all I would give the album a B-.

Love it!

I got this album actually for my sweet 16 in 2001 from a friend...Before the L Word even started. I loved it then and love it now. Def. a must have!!!
