Album Review

In a way, HeadSeed is the purest of moe.'s studio albums. Like Phish's Junta, the disc captures the band in first flowering. The basic concept of the band is stripped bare and sounds fresh: a lively mix of post-punk, ska, and hippie influences, without any particular grand aspirations other than to capture what they sound like. Just because the disc is a low budget effort doesn't mean it is without solid production values. Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey's guitars are mixed crisply, the vocals are in just the right balance, and the band resists the urge to mic the drums in any fancy manner. Most bands should be so lucky as to self-produce a disc that sounds this great. Above all, there is an amiable innocence to the music — the classical-sounding acoustic guitar and ragamuffin harmonies on "Mexico," the swirling funk psychedelia of "Brent Black" and "Timmy Tucker," and the college pop of "St. Augustine" are all nothing less than charming as hell.

Customer Reviews

What a great album

Look, I am biased, I LOVE moe. - but this is my favorite moe. album. Yeah, Wormwood has all the critical acclaim, and this is early in their career and a little rougher - but the song selection is out of this world - I mean, come on, this reads like the best of the best. Rec Chem? Yodelittle? Time Ed? My personal favorite Akimbo? I mean, what is there to NOT like. Every song is a gem that is solidly in their repetoire - I can't name an album by ANY band that has every single song on it loved by the fans of the band....

great

i like this album a lot , even tho i prefer moe. live i still love this album so if you like jam bands like phish and the the dead you should pretty much love them, but before you buy this one look into tin cans and car tires cause i like that one a bit more

Great album

This is a rock solid album, it is a little raw but that's what makes it so good. It was moe in the beginning and the album has captured some of that live jamming feel.

Rising from the dingy college bars of upstate New York, moe. carved a niche for themselves with a distinct blend of Americana, melodic turns, clever songwriting, and jam band ethics.

Founded in 1990 by bassist/vocalist Rob Derhak, guitarist/vocalist Chuck Garvey, and original drummer Ray Schwartz, the band toured the university's party circuit under...
