Top 5 Favorite Album??

Yep, I honestly would put 'Son of Sam I Am' as one of my top 5 favorite albums. Not necessarily because it's one of the most incredible CDs ever released (actually I owned it on tape) but because I listened to it so much in college that it became the soundtrack to my college years. 'Life is Flowers' and 'Kicking' are a couple of my favorites, but 'That's a Lie' is the song that made me check out the group to start my 'Son of Sam I Am' obsession. I hope you enjoy the songs at least half as much as I did and appreciate the raw talent that is Too Much Joy.

Listen To The Record

so, the reviewer never actually listened to the record, because...too much joy's "train in vain" is not a cover of the clash song. they only named it that because they didn't name it on the record, just like the clash. it's still an awesome record, just remember when it came out. it is dated, but if you had it then, it sounds just as good now.

It's a great tune to begin with, but Too Much Joy's heavier version is also pleasing for those who like their music a bit harder.

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Too Much Joy was part of the explosion of collegiate comedy rock in the late '80s, distinguishing themselves with a more mature side than the Dead Milkmen and a simpler, speedier punk-pop approach than the arty King Missile. Starting out via the independent route, the band spent several years on a major label before drifting from view. Although they never had the breakout MTV novelty hit that some of their peers managed, they had an amusing ride along the way -- they were sued by Bozo the Clown over...
