Customer Reviews

Happy Days, and The Waxing Poetics, finally here!

They are still my favorite band! Wonderful music, outstanding lyrics, and terrific live energy made The Poetics one of the best thing to come out of Norfolk, VA. Now they are here on iTunes, bringing along two great songs not on the original album. Don't miss the launch of the awesome site,, coming soon!

Happy Days Indeed!

It's so exciting finally finding Waxing Poetics on iTunes! I have been wanting these two bonus tracks included here FOREVER, but you must download the entire album...period!


I'd give this album 10 stars if I could. Hermitage is essential to your collection! It was the first of three great albums, and though it is over 20 years old, it still sounds as fresh today as it did back in 1987. It's difficult to single out any songs here -- they all are fantastic -- but A Year By Air and Mrs. Dance's Skeleton were always particular favorites of mine. And the bonus tracks are a wonderful treat!!! Happy Days and Jimmy Carter's Head were standards in their early live shows....if you were ever lucky enough to see the Poetics live, well, then you know how special they really were!
