Album Review

With their first self-released, self-titled album, Ludo seemed to be on their way to being the kind of smart rock band that Weezer and Fountains of Wayne can be, as lead singer and primary songwriter Andrew Volpe roamed through the ups and down of romance, viewing it all as if he were a coach potato comparing his life to popular movies and TV commercials. Years of touring the Midwest later, Ludo have signed to a major label and come under the wing of a hot producer, Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Train). On You're Awful, I Love You, the band now sounds like it's trying to rank with the Killers and Jimmy Eat World. Wallace achieves a radio-ready mainstream rock sheen, smoothing the band's rough edges. As for the songwriting, every now and then something literate breaks through, such as at the beginning of "Topeka," when Volpe sings, "I found God in a catalytic converter in Topeka on a Monday night," and "Go-Getter Greg" stands out with enough flair to have fit in on the first album. Those who have never heard Ludo before may think You're Awful, I Love You is an efficient work of pop/rock. (Although the final track, "In Space," appears to run 8:19, it actually runs about 3:50, followed by a minute and a half of silence and then the hidden track "Boat Song.")

Customer Reviews

Amazing Album from Start to Finish!

This is the Ludo album that got me hooked! Every song on this album is amazing. From over the top humor of songs like "Go-Getter Greg" and "Japan It" to heart-wrenching emotion of songs like "Streetlights" and "Please", You're Awful, I Love You has everything you could want. You'll be setting this album on repeat for a while.

Best of 2008!

This is my pick for best album of 2008
Ludo really broke out with this, their second album.
Every track is unique here. From the very sing-able pop hit Love Me Dead, to the somewhat eeire Lake Pontchartrain, and the almost country music-like Topeka. My favorite is the second track Drunken Lament. As different as the song styles may seem they are held together and made similar by the glue that is Andrew Volpe's incredible voice.
If you ever get to see Ludo play live do yourself a favor and buy the ticket! They sound amazing and have an incredible sense of humor. Tim Convy, the band's singer/keyboardist has enough energy to fuel 3 bands and is alone worth the ticket price.


I really love this cd and all of the songs on it. It has a good combo of songs. If you really want some pretty good music, buy this album.:)
