Editors’ Notes

Fountains of Wayne excel at power pop. It’s an odd genre, since its practitioners are rarely popular, aside from the occasional hit. “Stacey’s Mom” was this group’s crossover single, but, really, anyone who enjoyed that song would surely find much to like in many Fountains of Wayne tunes. Singers and songwriters Chris Collingwood and Adam Schelsinger are pleasantly clean-cut in their presentation. Guitars are carefully refined. Beats are usually a solid mid-tempo and the vocals represent earnest tunefulness. Their passion has always been tucked inside the songwriting where their topics take weird turns. Their songs feature an “Action Hero,” a “Radio Bar,” a ride on the “Acela,” time spent at “The Summer Place” with “A Dip In the Ocean.” These aren’t guys interested in baring their inner souls, but rather songwriters writing quirky, subtly humorous observational tunes. Bonus Version includes the track “Song of the Passaic,” a tribute to the band’s days in New Jersey.

Customer Reviews

A veritable treasure of power pop

In a world of singles and remixes and albums with (maybe) two good songs, Sky Full of Holes is a veritable jackpot of finely-crafted, affecting pop nuggets best represented by Someone’s Gonna Break Your Heart, A Dip In The Ocean, Action Hero and A Road Song.

The album may not be quite as good as 2003’s Welcome Interstate Managers, but that’s as great a pop album as exists. Still, SFOH is better than 2007’s Traffic and Weather thanks to a more equal contribution between songwriters Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood.

I’ve given up trying to convince people FoW is one of America’s greatest bands. You either get it or you don’t. They are a wonderful antithesis to everything that’s wrong about today’s popular music where beats, Auto-Tune and mindless lyrics rule the equally-mindless masses.

Let’s hope it’s not another four years before the next Fountains of Wayne album.

Love it!

I love these guys. Great lyrics, melodies, and musicianship. What more could you want?

Although Fountains of Wayne didn't enjoy mainstream attention until the release of "Stacy's Mom" in 2003, the band had already established itself as one of America's strongest power pop acts. Based in New Jersey, the group first appeared in 1996 with a mix of British-influenced pop songs, lo-fi production, and wry lyrics about dead-end jobs and biker boyfriends. Fountains of Wayne expanded their lineup and polished up their sound during the following years, eventually hitting gold with 2003's Welcome...
