Album Review

The third album from Jim's Big Ego showcases their smart coffeehouse pop. "Jumblies" is a folky, laidback rendition of the children's story of the same name, while the jumpy, quirky "Ahead of the Curve" details a trend-hopper's laments. The distorted guitars, shouted vocals and samples on "This Message" express the funky, extreme side of the band's sound, and Infantino's smooth delivery and lyrical creativity on Don't Get Smart show why Jim's Big Ego is an East Coast college favorite.

Jim is God

absolutely one of my favorite underground bands, and that's saying alot. Buy this album. Buy all their albums. It's funky, quirky, strangely meaningful, and downright fun.

As Jim's Big Ego, Infantino and a host of supporting musicians released More Songs About Me and the live album Titanic, both from 1996, and 1998's Don't Get Smart. Noplace...
