Album Review

This, the second 5 Chinese Brothers CD, doesn't have quite the irrepressible drive and bite of their first disc, but this one is still so good that it's not a fair comparision. The standout song is "Mole in the Ground." Tom Meltzer's elastic voice adds the right amount of energy and edge to The 5CBs sound. Like Singer-Songwriter-Beggarman Thief, you ought to play this until it is part of you.

Customer Reviews

Excellent second album

Well, yeah...I didn't get the kick from this album that I did from "Singer, Songwriter, Beggarman, Thief," but several songs stood out. Again, it's the lyrics that do it; lyrics that are intelligent and convey a sense of fun. The Avalanche Song is typical: "I've got the peace of mind of a skydiver whose parachute won't open...In other words, I'm good to the last drop." "Mr. Williams" and "Amazing Delores" are also standouts on this collection. Great musical hooks and lyrics that make you want to listen.
