Album Review

The worldview of Todd Pipes, who wrote nine of the 12 songs on Deep Blue Sometbing's debut album, Home (the other three had lyrics by his brother Toby), is that of the educated American twenty-something of the 1990s: referencing art objects from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany's to the paintings of Kandinsky, he and his friends suffer the travails of romance, compromise, and suicide while trying to establish themselves as independent adults. Pipes sets these concerns to a power-pop sound straight out of late-'70s/early-'80s Great Britain (in turn indebted to the Brit rock of 1965), perhaps an odd stylistic choice for a band from Denton, TX, but it's a small world after all, and they find enough hooks to offer a literally upbeat contrast to the youthful uncertainty in the lyrics. Ironically, given the defiantly uncommercial stance put forth on the album-closing "Wouldn't Change a Thing," Home, propelled by the Top Ten success of "Breakfast at Tiffany's," became a substantial hit. (Deep Blue Something released an earlier version of Home on RainMaker Records in October 1994. The Interscope version released in June 1995 contained two fewer songs; three songs had been re-recorded; and the remaining songs had been remixed.)

Wishing for more!!

The entire album is overshadowed by Breakfast at Tiffany's. Every song is GREAT!! Home demands attention and radio play.

great "one hit wonder"

great song that year! wish they would put out more!

Alternative oddity

The band that could have been. They bottomed out like Primitive Radio Gods thanks to fickle and unpredictable fanbase. this album is consistent and the song "Halo" would have been great for a teen drama film. Intropective but catchy songs that do not grow tired. If you can handle fountains of wayne or the Arcade Fire then purchase this one or at least the song, Halo.
