Album Review

The smiling fish (a trout?) on the cover of Infinity captures the mood of Trout Fishing in America. The fish doesn't seem aware that five more fish are directly behind him, ready to make him part of the food chain. This is fun music for kids and adults. Who could resist singing along to "Junk Food Jump," a catchy tune that glorifies "Ice cream, potato chips, pie, and a coconut cake/Cotton candy, bubble gum, and a big strawberry shake"? Lou and Peter Berryman's "It's Better Than That" informs kids that being an adult is really — so much more fun than they could imagine. "We have a chocolate éclair about as big as your head/Just before noon before we get out of bed." Trout Fishing in America is the accidental creation of Ezra Idlet and Keith Grimwood. They write most of their material together, sort of like Lennon and McCartney for children, and release their music on their own label, Trout Records. The great thing about Infinity is that with the exception of a little tree-hugging ("Everything That's Made of Wood"), the album is mostly free of "grown-up propaganda." That means it's just about being a kid and doing the things that kids do. Better yet, these guys make it all so much fun. For fans, Infinity is another winner; for those unfamiliar with Trout Fishing in America, this is a good album to start one's acquaintance. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., Rovi

Customer Reviews

Childhood Favorite

When I was younger, I couldn't go to bed without listening to Trout Fishing as I was falling asleep. These songs are humorous in a way that kids love and adults understand. I used to go to a Trout Fishing concert every year when I was little, and I have their songs on CDs and cassettes. Now that I am a teen, the songs are kinda weird, but when the kids I babysit listen to them, It always puts a smile on my face. I reccomend their CD, It's a Puzzle, but InFINity is great too. Parents with infants to ten year olds, buy a kids CD, anyone else, their adult CDs are nice too!

Kid music with grown-up sensibilities

I love music for kids that doesn't talk down to its audience. With a witty writing style and a musical hook the size of an anchor, these 2 guys have created some of the best of its kind. Stand-outs on this album are My Best Day, Your Name Backwards and Simon Says.

Nostalgia Blanket

This album was the only thing I listened to as a kid. I still have to rock out and dance when I hear these songs!
