Album Review

The more things change in music, the more they stay the same. The alternative rockers of the 1990s may have caused so-called corporate rockers like Poison and Bon Jovi to become less visible, but at the same time, the worship of 1970s baby boomer culture was alive and well among post-baby boomers. In 1998, one of the most memorable examples of 1970s-flavored music came from the New Radicals. Although Radicals singer/leader Gregg Alexander was quick to espouse a left-wing point of view, Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too doesn't beat listeners over the head with a sociopolitical agenda. Nor is the CD an exercise in angry 1990s angst rock. Rather, Alexander's band is a congenial and highly melodic throwback to the rock and blue-eyed soul of the early to mid-'70s. Alexander's vocals have a very Mick Jagger-ish quality, but while the Rolling Stones were a rock & roll band that occasionally dabbled in soul and funk, the Radicals favor pop/rock that is consistently mindful of classic Northern soul. Hook-happy offerings like "Jehovah Made This Whole Joint for You," "Flowers," and "Mother We Just Can't Get Enough" give the impression that Alexander holds the Stones and the artists of Motown Records in equally high regard. Without question, Brainwashed was among the more promising releases of late 1998.

Someday We'll Know...

If you're ever in a music one upsmanship debate about the best albums of all time (I'm 48, I've had my share of these), MAYBE YOU'VE BEEN BRAINWASHED TOO is a killer shot across any know-it-all's bow. Only discerning listeners with memories know about this truly remarkable album. And it is remarkable. Each song is a cornucopia of melodies and changes; the lyrics are in your face and full of personal political punch; and the production work that Gregg Alexander, et al put into this record make it one of the top five from the Nineties in my book. If you disagree, that's fine...as long as you've really listened. Too bad Gregg burned out and has ceased performing and recording. He is one of the more happy inventors who came through the 90s. The music of the 21st century needs him.

I can honestly say new radicals are one of my fav artist of all time

WOW, i don't know where to begin on how much i love this album, I have had this CD for like 3 years and I listen to sooo many bands and am always drawn back to this one and am just permanently obsessed with this band and album (sadly their ONLY album). Honesly EVERY SONG is amazing, and I do not say that about CD's, you just slmost lose yourself in the songs. I tell everybody to get it and when your feeling really stressed out to turn up the volume really loud and it will clear your mind and put you at ease. I know each song through and through and cannot THINK of anything negative to say about the album, it is a sound that any music lover will appreciate. The lyrics, vocals, and sound are nothing short of amazing. I can honestly tell you that you WILL NOT be unsatisfied, and you may think this review is a little over kill, well get the album and you will see I didnt justify it enough. My favorite songs are.."crying like a church on Monday", "I don't wanna die anymore", and Gotta stay high". I've never introdiced this bad to anyone without them being totally intrigued, people of all ages and music preferences. All I can say is go get this album and it will be one of the best music purchases you will EVER make.

Five Stars Aren't Enough

If I were going to be marooned on a desert island with only 5 CD's, this is one I'd take! I never get tired of listening to it. The songs are all different, and the sounds of each, both in the foreground and background keep them fresh. The whole CD is worth downloading. Track 2 was on commercial radio, but Track 1 should have been also, and Track 6. Out of five stars, I give it a 6+++!
