5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be so hasty to judge..... 22 April 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK, so neither of Lambchop's new long players evoke the same kind of magic as the lush country soul of "Nixon" and "What Another Man Spills" or the sparse melancholy of "Is A Woman" but given time they reveal themselves as fine albums in their own right. It just takes time and a bit of effort, as with all Lambchop music!
Of the two, I'd say "Aw C'mon" is the stronger album- gorgeous tunes all over the shop, my personal favourites being "Something's Going On", "I Haven't Heard A Word I've Said", "Nothing But A Blur From A Bullet Train" and the amazing "Steve McQueen". Melancholy masterpieces, each and every one.
Other highlights include the faltering lounge jazz of "Women Help To Create The Kind Of Men They Despise" and the damn funky "I Hate Candy".
"No You C'mon" is a lighter affair than the fairly bleak "Aw C'mon"- the tunes are looser on the whole, the lyrics slightly more humorous and heck- even a bit of heavily distorted guitar creeps into a song or two ("Nothing Adventurous Please" being the main example of this- it rocks hard! Track 10, "The Gusher" even cobs the riff from the Black Sabbath standard "Paranoid"!).
At the mellower end of the spectrum we get gems like "There's Still Time" and "The Problem".
It seems a lot of fuss has been made over the inclusion of instrumental material on the albums, which I can't really understand. Admittedly, some of these tunes veer a little too closely to 'elevator music' or whatever you want to call it, but on closer inspection the likes of "The Lone Official" and "Sunrise" reveal themselves as great pieces of music.
The key to enjoying these albums is to not be overwhelmed by the huge amount of material on offer- like I said, it takes a bit of time to fully appreciate everything here! Get used to one disc at a time, whatever it takes but please don't write them off as disappointing so soon- they're a pair of gems!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 5 July 2004
Format:Audio CD
Every bit as good as all their other albums, but in a different way which, if you love Lambchop because of either Nixon or Is A Woman, might take a number of listens to appreciate. I love both the aforementioned, but I also love all their earlier stuff (I Hope You're Sitting Down, How I Quit Smoking, Hank, Thriller, What Another Man Spills, (don't miss Vic Chesnutt collaboration Salesman & Bernadette)). Even Wagner's Morcheeba collaboration (on their "Charango") is exquisite.
Don't be put off. As ever, a little effort with Lambchop will reap rich rewards. Just listen to Neihaus's sweet sweet pedal steel on Sunrise, if you think instrumentals don't work! As ever, Kurt Wagner is miles ahead of everyone, including us poor listeners, who need to Listen (!) to catch up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stately Country and Lush Instrumentals 9 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
I first encountered Lambchop, as is the case with many listeners, some time shortly after the release of the great Nixon album. Being a fan of both Country and soul/funk fan in general, and a huge Curtis Mayfield fan in particular, the recordings on this album totally astounded me. I was lucky enough to see Kurt Wagner play a solo acoustic set about six months or so before "Is A Woman" came out. It was then I realised that there were more sides to Lambchop than I had heard on Nixon. When "Is A Woman" finally came out I didn't know what to make of it at first. I loved certain songs but it took me quite a few listens before I warmed to it as an album but eventually I began to really love it and even went to see Lambchop when they toured the album with the full band.

"Aw Come On!/No You Come On!" was a similar experience with me. Initially I found the two albums very pleasant but didn't feel the compulsion to play the albums again and again. Then I heard Lambchop were doing a really cool gig in Edinburgh. At some point in the recent past they had been commisioned to write a film score for F.W. Murnau's silent masterpiece "Sunrise", and there was going to be a screening of a restored version of the film with Lambchop providing a live score. As I really liked the film, was well disposed to Lambchop, and the whole concept of a live film score really appealed to me, I thought I'd give it a go. It was a revelation. I'd twigged that the instrumental "Sunrise" would be involved somehow but I hadn't realised that "Aw Come On..." was in a large part made up from songs prepared for this project, I'd for some reason presumed that the soundtrack would be entirely instrumental.

5.0 out of 5 stars give them a big hand grumpus 5 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
Simply the best piece of work they have done, more developed than Nixon, altogether more immediate, beautifully arranged and believe it or not "catchy". When "Is a woman" came out I was worried that Lambchop had finally imploding, I gave em a last try with this, blimey! what a relief! - this is a delicious an incredible set of songs and muscial landscapes that just touch your soul - really up, really good, Buy it now, give the man a big hand. Kurt and the rest deserves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great double-set of prime Lambchop... 3 Mar 2004
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
Aw C'Mon/No You C'Mon is in many ways the ultimate statement from Kurt Wagner & co- career peak thus far Nixon (2000) is advanced on, alongside the minimal-production of Is a Woman (2002)- co-producer Mark Nevers (Bonnie Prince Billy, Silver Jews)gives these two albums a wonderful sound. Wagner is rejoined by the complete Lambchop-band line-up (which was restricted on Is a Woman)& the odd Pernice brother as a guest. Setting himself the target of a song a day, Wagner has come up with a vast-set that takes a while to appreciate- due to length- but I think it's the strongest thing they've done so far (& I like their early material also- incidentally David Byrne has recently covered their song The Man Who Loved Beer!). Essentially this is Lambchop, we know what they sound like & they're one of those bands like Sonic Youth or Stereolab who don't really surprise...Or do they?- both these albums contain great instrumentals (Being Tyler, Sunrise) & more experimental material (Nothing Adventerous Please, Jan 24, Listen).
There are too many tracks to really go into, I can assure you it's a grower and best appreciated at night- pretty much every Lambchop record has been a grower for me, songs like Grumpus and Caterpillar suddenly just capturing me a few listens in. Aw C'Mon is the darker album of the two- plenty of highlights as far as I'm concerned: Steve McQueen, Women Help to Create the Kind of Men They Despise (title!), Something's Going On...No C'Mon sees them employ serious guitar-assault (Nothing Adventerous Please) & offer up strange catchy-pop in the form of Shang a Dang Dang (the hit that Up With People should have been?). Plenty of great tracks, highlights so far include Listen, Slow Ambition, Sunrise & About My Lighter...

When I first heard about Lambchop it was about an alternative country band releasing a double album, and it was apparently pretty damn good! Interesting, I thought to myself. Read more
