Here They Are Again!

PencilSharpener,

Most people have only heard CTD's first huge album, God Shuffled His Feet, and what a shame that is. Puss 'n' Boots starts with the ballad 'It's A Shame' and doesn't look back. If you love songs like 'Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm', 'Afternoons and Coffeespoons', and 'God Shuffled His Feet', you are in for quite a surprise with this masterpiece. My key track: my personal favorite CTD song, 'Triple Master Blaster'. Enjoy.

ehhhhh....

Cambodian Boa Constrictor,

Dont get me wrong, The Crash Test Dummies are my all time favorite band but NOTHING beats the album "When God Shuffled his feet". NOTHING. Puss N' Boots is a good album and in a poll would probably take the #2 spot if you were comparing "God Shuffle His Feet", "A Worms Life" and "Puss N' Boots". But the claim that its better then "when god shuffled his feet" is an overstatment.

About Crash Test Dummies

With their clever lyrics and folk-tinged melodies, the Crash Test Dummies were a perfect rock band for affluent '90s college students and yuppies. Their first album was a multi-platinum hit in their native Canada, but only gained a small cult following in other parts of the world. Thanks to former Talking Head Jerry Harrison's clean, radio-friendly production, the follow-up album, God Shuffled His Feet (1993), broke big in the States and, in turn, Europe. The first single from the record, "MMM MMM MMM MMM," became a worldwide Top Ten hit, making the group a minor sensation with their self-consciously bizarre lyrics and singer/songwriter Brad Roberts' deep baritone. A Worm's Life followed in 1996, and three years later the Crash Test Dummies returned with Give Yourself a Hand, which found Roberts sharing vocal duties with bandmate Ellen Reid.

Frontman Brad Roberts resurfaced in fall 2000 with a solo album, Crash Test Dude, a collection of acoustic hits from the Crash Test Dummies and eclectic covers. It was also during this time that Roberts suffered a serious car crash, almost losing his arm. Seven months later, however, he returned to the Crash Test Dummies circuit to issue I Don't Care That You Don't Mind, a brand-new batch of songs written with lobster fishermen/musicians whom Roberts met during his rehabilitation. Late 2001 and early 2002 saw more solo albums from the band's members (Ellen Reid's Cinderellen and Mitch Dorge's As Trees Walking), and the Dummies gradually became more Brad Roberts' project than a traditional band. A new three-piece unit consisting of Reid, Brad Roberts and original bassist Dan Roberts released the Christmas album Jingle All the Way in late 2002, but limited distribution made the album hard to find. The album was reissued in late 2003 along with a new album, Puss 'n' Boots, with Reid and Dan Roberts adding to what was originally planned as a Brad Roberts solo album. The trio embraced a more stripped-down acoustic sound on their next album, 2004's Songs of the Unforgiven, while 2010's Ooh La La proved to be more symphonic. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
