Album Review

Savage Garden is light, catchy, and undeniably melodic, and it's hard to believe they released their debut album in the late, not early, '90s. It's easy to say that their breakthrough single, "I Want You," sounds like a revamped Roxette, but it's accurate — it has a breezy chorus and frothy production that make it an appealing slice of mainstream pop, the kind banished from the airwaves in 1992. Occasionally, Savage Garden reach that peak elsewhere on their eponymous debut — most notably on the second single "To the Moon and Back" and "Truly Madly Deeply" — but they lack the vision and discipline to make the record anything more than fitfully entertaining. But those highlights almost make the album worthwhile.

Customer Reviews


This album brings me back. I remeber as a little girl stealing the cd from my mother and playing it over and over again for hours. Somehow that same infectious quality that most things in my childhood seem to have lost is still here. Even now I find myself replaying these songs, and not just for a walk down memory lane. I actually still love the music. What a great cd.

Truly Deeply Entertaining

I-tunes reviewer has omitted that another trend has changed music since the early 90s (with downloadable music), in that albums nowadays are sparsely populated with star making tracks and a lot of filler. With Savage Garden's first album, I was first pulled in with the smash, "Truly Madly Deeply" - as the cliché goes, a track worth the price of the album. However, to my pleasant surprise, this was an album high on songs that begged for repeated listening on their own merit. "To the Moon and Back," "Universe," and "A Thousand Words" are melodic and infectuous, and on this album, the lead vocals are crooned by a singer who actually knows and likes the songs he is singing - truly entertaining and appreciated by this music fan.

Captivating songs

Although iTunes says this album's genre is pop, the album is a cut above your typical pop. It combines elements of rock with smoothly flowing melodies to create a more complex sound. Similarly, the lyrics are deeper and show more creativity than most pop lyrics. I play the album regularly, and even when I am channel hopping on the radio, I will stop whenever I hear a Savage Garden song.

Australian pop duo Savage Garden have taken the world by storm without the record company hype and career-establishing game plan that is often the background for pop-oriented acts. Daniel Jones comes from a long line of musicians. When he was ten, he was already playing the keyboard and drums in bars and hotels. Darren Hayes' show business experience extended no further than his involvement in many school plays. When Jones and the band he'd started with his brothers advertised for a singer, the...
