Customer Reviews

Buying this would not be a "Stupid Thing"

To be perfectly honest, I heard these guys on an episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," when they played in their local club, "The Bronze." I was even more suprised when I saw them on iTunes, because they weren't exactly superstars. All that aside, this album is great for listening anytime. It's relaxing and introspective. 12 heartfelt tunes that make you say, "They sing like I think." It's a lot of songs about love, women, and dealing with the the first two things. It's a solid album, you won't be sorry.

Nickel: Stupid Thing

Smarter than their time, this band could have evolved into a "weezery-crowded-mouse" had they stuck around. Perhaps they will reunite and reclaim pop/rock for the next generation? Meanwhile I have heard rumors about an newly emerging project from singer/songwriter Tom McDermott while bass player Bob Schmidt currently tours with Flogging Molly as the mandolin and banjo player. Clearly these men have talent... just listen to this album and tell me it's not burgeoning with unyeilded potential.

Pretty Darned... Something

If you're having a yen for 90s college pseudo-alternative rock then Nickel is definitely the way to go. They're not fantastic, but their sound is good and there's a sort of purity in every song, wherin lies most of their charm. They lack the heavy grunge-bass of superstars like Bush, and they lack the clever/absurd/metaphorical lyrics of bands like Cake, but there is a sort of innocent charm in their catchy tunes and easy-to-learn lyrics. The first time I heard Stupid Thing it was stuck in my head for days. All in all a fun and light-weight blast from the past.
