Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Jeff Tweedy might carry the name recognition, but the rest of his band-on-the-side carries the mail on the fourth release from this Midwest all-star group. Though the Wilco leader teams with the Jayhawks' Gary Louris on a pair of nimble pop songs - the elegantly strummed "Listen Joe" and Kinks cover "Strangers" - it's Louris who's clearly at the head of the class with self-assured vocals ("Another Fine Day", "Think About Yourself"), lush harmonies ("Long Time Ago") and those unmistakable guitar leads ("Frying Pan Eyes"). Soul Asylum guitarist Dan Murphy's obligatory rocker "Hurricane" is a high point, as is the album's lead track "You Make It Easy," which has Kraig Johnson warbling over a thumping piano lead and chunky fuzz guitar. But most welcome among the 15 songs are two contributions from Louris's fellow Jayhawk Marc Perlman: the refreshing "Corvette" and "Cure for This", a 60s-speckled pop song sung by Muni Loco, the wife of producer Paco Loco and the first female to grace a recording by Golden Smog. --Scott Holter

5.0 out of 5 stars Golden Smog Sound? 18 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
As I reach my mid-fifties I am becoming more and more disappointed with new CD releases. This one jumps out from the mish-mash of modern CDs. Long after the new CDs from the currently fashionable and rising stars are pushed to the back of the cupboard this will be played relentlessly and still being enjoyed. At last a Golden Smog CD appears to be a band outing rather than the sum of different parts. Whereas the first two CDs sounded like the Jayhawks, Wilco, Soul Asylum etc this release sounds very different. Probably as a result of the reported demise of the Jayhawks, Gary Louris has written songs with a different approach and feel and has obviously put much more of himself into the band as he now appears the guiding light. This is where the difference lies and why this is very much Golden Smog. People who have purchased the previous two albums will not be disappointed and there is more than enough excellent music on this CD to attract new converts. There is really not a weak album on this album and each play strengthens this opinion. Definitely worth the money. Try it and see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't it blow your mind again 15 Dec 2011
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Are Golden Smog's members famous enough to be tagged a supergroup? Well, they're a fairly loose aggregation of musicians anyway. Jeff Tweedy, the best-known of the bunch, only makes a few appearances here, perhaps due to Wilco's success and travel issues. The others, as far as I know, are Minnesotans whereas he isn't. Instead, this is, on the creative level, mainly Kraig Johnson and Gary Louris's album, but there are a few important contributions from Daniel Murphy and Louris's fellow Jayhawk, Marc Perlman.

'Another Fine Day' mixes gorgeous songs with experimental ones. 'You Make It Easy', '5-22-02' and the hard, fast 'Corvette' are the upfront songs that make you play the album repeatedly while the others grow on you. 'Long Time Ago', which is just Louris and Tweedy, and 'Listen Joe' are the quieter, dramatic moments. 'Beautiful Mind' is an unexpected foray into cosmic territory, the song only beginning after a near two-minute electronic psychfest. Musical ideas hit you from all angles in combinations of, typically, a couple of electric guitars, one acoustic and sometimes a banjo; piano, organ, synth, a plodding electric piano, brass, one female vocal, it's all there. This album never flags and, if anything, the last few tracks give the album a second wind, not bad for over an hour's worth of music. If only the media would push guys like these and ditch the timewasting karaoke merchants the UK music industry serves up...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of 06's Finest 20 Aug 2006
By Rick D. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Damn. Now this is more like it. Up until now, supergroups were tarred with tarnished and gag inducing brush that Asia foisted upon the term back in the early 80's. And in their defense, Golden Smog had been content to release good music that somehow drifted underneath the radar of too many listeners. But the opening chords of "You Make It Easy" from Another Fine Day wipes that forever away. And the ultimately too-frickin'-catchy for it's own sake "5-22-02" hooks you in for the duration. Rest assured, there isn't a bad song on this disc. But for the sake of discussion, try out "Beautiful Mind," "Listen Joe," and "Hurricane." And if for some reason that defies any semblance of logic, that doesn't sell you on this album, try out "Cure For This." This is a song that deserves loving treatment by Matthew Sweet & Susanna Hoff on their Under the Covers" album. What could have been an exercise of self-indulgence arrives as one of 2006's finest albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING on a number of levels... 4 Sep 2006
By freereign - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First thing I absolutely ADORE about this CD is that it sounds like a mix-tape. The songs are almost all collaborations, but bear the markings of the person who brought the demo to the sessions or such thing. Gary Louris is in fine voice as ever, and to his credit, really doesn't bring songs that evoke a Jayhawks-styled sound. Craig Johnson really has the hooks and arrangements going, with a POP-tastic track "5-22-02" really standing out (with its Suburbs-like horn vamping). Just try getting that one out of your head...
Tweedy actually plays a more minor role in this set, but the songs here are all so strong it suggests they really had a lot of material to choose from. If you listen to this without distraction, you'll catch a lot of the nuances and be hooked right away. If you listen once and think little of it, just spin it again the next day or so and after a few listens you'll find it very delightful. Timing-wise it was perfect: Released in the early days of summer, as it has a bright, cheerful, summery feel to it. Watch for an EP of some of the other "out takes" in coming months, and if you have a chance, catch their tour in September '06--I saw the Minneapolis show and was blown away at their set...

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Fine Golden Smog Record 18 July 2006
By Ron - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Went out to buy this record today, the day of release, due to the amazing predecessor, "Weird Tales". I'm a big Jayhawks fan, as well as a big Wilco fan, but this album caught me a bit by surprise. It's very rocking in production and songcraft, with only a few acoustic tunes. The majority of the record is wall-of-sound rock & roll...like Oasis covering Whiskeytown... which results in one the most thrilling listens I've had when first popping in a new CD and letting it play. I recommend this album to anyone who loves great rock & roll or Americana with some soul and energy...

4.0 out of 5 stars Evolution of Smog Continues! 20 July 2006
By B. Lesnick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
First off... don't listen to self professed Smog anti-fans like Wheeler. This is a great disc. It follows true to the evolution of this band. I hate it when people judge music through anticipation. There is nothing weak here whatsoever. To try and label this is also a crime. Powerpop? No. Sincere, yes. No Smog disc has sounded like the last... it is no different here. Louris and Tweedy are shining stars in the industry. They just reside in a galaxy that most do not choose to look into. For shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Subjectively speaking, a great disk. Period. 11 Sep 2006
By M. Sedgwick - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, these user reviews are plagued by a high degree of subjectivity, though what is objective about music? Plainly speaking, after listening to AFD for four weeks now, I believe this disc is quite exceptional both in its variety, the quality of songwriting, and overall production. This was my first exposure to Golden Smog, but since I have explored (that is, purchased) "Weird Tales." I just don't have the same feeling toward that disc as I do for AFD. For the record, I am not overly enamored with Wilco's recorded output, and had no previous exposure to the Jayhawks. Another Fine Day, then, needs no antecedents to make a salient musical impression. I am not given to hyperbole, but can best sum up my feeling about AFD this way: I have already downloaded it in its entirety from ITMS, but am now ordering two physical discs from Amazon--one for my 24-year old son, and one just for posterity.
