Album Review

With their second album, Grant Lee Buffalo strip back their sound to its bare essentials, which accentuates Grant Lee Phillips' rural myths. Not only does the approach make songs like "Lone Star Song" rock viciously, but it also makes the bittersweet beauty of ballads like the gorgeous "Mockingbirds" all the more poignant.

Customer Reviews

How on Earth am I the first?

You might say Mighty Joe Moon is a singular recording, but their Fuzzy is/is almost as good. The argument could go either way. But what amazes me is that it could go unrated on iTunes for so long. Gorgeous songwriting, killer riffs, elegiac, note perfect odes to a bent, odd country with broken loves, historic stature and whiskey-soaked regret — it is an intoxicating set of songs. Mockingbirds, Happiness, Honey Don't Think, Lone Star Song, Lady Godiva and Me, most of the rest. In an honest world, Grant Lee Buffalo would have been celebrated as giants. Instead we get Dave Matthews. Our loss.

I just bought this because my CD was too scratched

And I was expecting to see tons of great reviews about what a great album this was. "Mighty Joe Moon" came out around the same time as Jeff Buckley's "Grace" and Elliot Smith's "Either/Or". These three albums never left my CD changer for more than a year. Buy this album. You will not regret it.

One of the greatest albums i own.

Every song is crafted well. A very emotionally connecting album. Was lucky to see them twice, once in a club in Portland, OR (La Luna) and a second time in Philly opening for R.E.M. If i had to pick the best song (for me) Honey Don't Think with Rock of Ages coming in a close second. I am surprised also to see very little itunes reviews. Come on people and spread the word.

Although heralded by the critics and championed by their musical peers, the '90s alternative/roots rock trio Grant Lee Buffalo failed to break through to the mainstream, despite strong songwriting and an original style. The band's leader was singer/guitarist/songwriter Grant Lee Phillips -- born in 1963 and raised in Stockton, CA, Phillips was equally influenced by rock music early on (David Bowie, Alice Cooper, Kiss) as well as country icons (Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, etc.).
