5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Bigger Better Faster More 10 Oct 2003
By Claire
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album 10 years ago because of the fantastic "What's Up" and it's still one of my most played cds. I love all the songs on the cd but "Pleasantly Blue" "Spaceman" "Morphine and Chocolate" and of course "What's Up" are my favourites. It's not one for your quiet romantic moments but is an excellent rock cd (with a bluesy feel in some songs). I went to see the band in concert when "What's Up" was still riding high and they were brilliant with all the album songs coming even more alive on stage. It's a shame the band didn't do more together but Linda Perry is now doing very well writing for people like Pink and has a very different but equally good solo cd "In Flight"

4.0 out of 5 stars Big, Better, Fast... just no More... 19 Mar 2006
Format:Audio CD
If your likes list contains any of Blondie, Pink, Avril Lavigne, The Pretenders, and (perhaps particularly) Skunk Anansie, then this album - from the depths of 1993 - is an absolute must buy and is a reference piece in its own right.
Linda Perry's voice is mixed to sit clearly 'above' (and in some cases 'apart' from) the songs - with sometimes heavy reverb to give space around, and freeing her acid etching voice - strong and enthalling (much like Skin from S&A) - and giving a sense of her voice as an instrument in its own right.
The album is a very strong and consistent romp through 90's alternate rock - the confident song writing and execution evident in all tracks. Good pacing offers some welcome rest stops in the ride... however it's not one to play if you are feeling even remotely head-achey... you have been warned!
Stand out (and shortest!) track - 'Pleaseantly Blue'.
The only real down-side really is that this is the band's only album, Perry departing, leaving only a sense of 'what might have been'. Find her in her own solo-right, and in collaborations with (at least) Pink and Gwen Stefani.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most treasured cd in my collection! 30 Jun 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bigger, Better, Faster, More is the most intense album that I own. The reason I bought this album in the first place was due to the unforgettable "Whats Up" but I was pleasantly surprised with the rest of the tracks. Whats Up is not the best track on this cd as it is compared to tracks like Spaceman which didnt make it far in the British Charts but to me is a classic, its more of a soft rock ballad. One of my favorites is Pleasantly Blue which is a combination of Rock and blues. Each track has its own character but the reason that your ears stick up when you hear this music is due to the bold vocals of frontwoman Linda Perry who's razor sharp voice grabs your attention, she being the reason that you will play this album till its worn out. Why she is not a household name is beyond me. Other albums to check out are her solo albums "In Flight" and "After Hours". If your an alternative rock fan then this is a timeless classic that you should own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Vocals 30 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
4 Non Blondes only recorded this one album, which was originally released in 1993. The band scored a big world-wide hit with the excellent "What's Up", but that songs was not really a good representive of the musical style of the band. Judged from this album their main musical influence comes from bands like Led Zeppelin og maybe even the Yardbirds: in other words solid blues-rock. The band's trademark was lead-vocalist Linda Perry's powerfull vocals and a generally tight sound.

Apart from the slightly funky closing track "No Place Like Home" there is no weak tracks on t he album. "Spaceman", which was another single taken the album, is the track which comes closest to the style of "What's Up" - and these two songs are my personal favourites.

Among the blues-rockers the opener "Train", "Pleasantly Blue" and "Old Mr Heffner" stand out. The acoustic "Drifting" is also really good.

After the album the band recorded songs for a few movie-soundtracks, but Perry thought that their musical direction had turned too commercial, so she decided the leave the band, which consequently decided to split-up.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strange. Good in places... 9 April 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD ostensibly for What's Up and to see how many of the rest I liked. Unfortunately for me, that turned out to be not many.

What's Up has in fact grown on me even more, and I don't mind spending for the CD for that song. However, despite one or two (literally) additional tracks of interest, so much of this album is rather hit and miss.

If Linda Perry is creatively good as she can be vocally, then hopefully her success in working with other people will continue. 4 Non Blondes was a good idea, but I think at the time some of them didn't really know what they were really doing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Loud enough for the train....
This album starts off superbly with, possibly, one of the best opening tracks ever.

Train is a rocking, ballsy, brilliantly played, well sung, genuinely great track. Read more
