The B Album

By Moxy Fruvous

Very Good Condition

A Review:

Okay first thing's first, this album (And this band) is somewhat of an acquired taste. If you like social commentary that's not preachy, great 4-part harmonies, and a bit of silliness in your music, read on.
That being said, this is one of the most funny, yet intelligent, CDs you will ever find. There are hilarious comments on Rush Limbaugh (The Greatest Man in America), right wing politics (Big Fish, my personal favorite), daytime "talk shows", (Jenny Washington), work, (I Love My Boss) and gambling (The Ballad of Cedric Fruvous). There's also a cute, slightly Tom Lehrer-like science song (Entropy), and one silly, classic Fruvous song (Johhny Saucep'n). The only song I don't really like is Ash Hash, and even then I don't hate it strongly.
Sounds too political and folky, you say? Wrong. In the wrong hands this would come off as phony or heavy-handed, but done by Fruvous they are light, snappy, and catchy as heck. (Just TRY to get Big Fish or Jenny Washington out of your head, and watch as they get hopelessly stuck in your brain.) The messages are subtle, and the harmonies are outstanding. It's also worth mentioning that they are about as non-conformist and non-corporate as you'll ever get- different, but not in a pretentious, we hate any thing mainstream way.
So what are you waiting for? If you love Barenaked Ladies, They Might Be Giants, or possibly Weezer, try this for a fresh, tuneful change of pace.
