take notes....

This is a great album. Down and dirty. What impresses me most about this band (during this era) is the quality and quanity. For some, producing an album like this could be a lifetime of music fulfilled, but for Anton and the boys it's just another record. BJM are hands down the best at their particular strain of rock and other bands heading down this avenue only strenghten my point. Not that the other bands are bad, no on the contrary, but none are THIS good. Someone mentioned the documentary... Was Anton really supposed to like it? BJM music will endure long after Anton is gone, He maybe the genius behind it, but in the end it's the music that is the grabber. OH, the Dandy Warhols are to BJM what the Monkees were to the Beatles.

prob the best from their best year ('96), maybe their best

amazing cd, even though it has a lot of a country feel to it best songs in order are stars, spanish bee, it girl, talk-action, and free and easy def check out stars!!!


I'm in love with this band... The movie DiG! is great even though Anton hated it, BJM, in my opinion is way better than Dandy Warhols! Peace and Love Forever <3
