I've just got my mits on this album after years of separation - it still stands up. Much, much better than hello june fool. I love the play off between the singer's fabulous gentle voice and the big sound system guitars and drums behind. It's almost meditative - feels like it's about the incidental moments of life. Maybe that's why it doesn't wear out very easily. And practically every track on the album is good.

Madder Rose seem to have been lost in 1990's history, in the era between grunge & britpop- despite the fact this album was feted by the music press.
Madder Rose's sound was somewhere between Birdbrain/Let Me Come Over- Buffalo Tom, Opal/Mazzy Star & the classic Velvet Underground sound. This album is mostly written by Billy Cote (the Lou of the band, it seems) & frequently hits its target of melodic guitar pop with rough edges. Vocalist Mary Lorson is a fine front-person- though her own songs (20 Foot Red, Altar Boy) are much less assured than Cote's songs (though Lorson would write some great songs on the following Panic-On album & develop to the excellent material released by Saint Low).
Debut single Madder Rose is overhauled as minor-hit indie single Swim- verging on indie-rap- as does Sugarsweet. No indie-guitar restrictions here. The more maudlin ballads are amongst the most enjoyable tracks here- While Away, Lights Go Down & Bring it Down (which builds up to the epic territory found on Ride's early work like Close My Eyes & Dreams Burn Down). There's also joyful jangly-guitar pop in the shape of Beautiful John & (Living a) Daydream; the album does peter out a little before the end.
Bring it Down is an album well worth investigating, along with The Grifters' Full Blown Possession & Belly's King, it remains a potent reminder of how good US rock music was in the 90s. It's also not that far away from the alt-country mode- such as The Walkabouts, Eleventh Dream Day/Hazeldine & Knife in the Water. The follow-up Panic On (1994) would be even better, offering perfections such as Car Song , Ultra Anxiety (Teenage Style) & Almost Lost My Mind...

a very pleasant surprise 22 Aug 2002
By J. mikitson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i recently moved across the country and, while packing, joyfully rediscovered my madder rose albums. "bring it down" was a staple of my freshman year in college and it thankfully sounds just as good 9 years later. the songs don't sound dated at all and this album quickly came back to be one of my favourites, especially for driving around in my car. isn't it great when you find out that you still love a band years later? the song "sugarsweet" is hypnotic, kind of understated and edgy at the same time. i also love "waiting for engines." i would recommend this band to anyone who is into the so-called "indie music" scene and is looking for still another amazing yet overlooked band that deserves a lot more attention.

Beautiful and strong 7 Nov 2000
By Simon Piper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As with Bettie Serveert's Carol van Djiyk, i've always admired the sheer grace that you can hear in Mary Lorson's voice. Even when she is singing the most heart-aching of the tracks, you can still hear the undertone of defiance and strength. Add to that the musicianship of Billy and the boys behind her, and the excellent, varied arrangements, and you have an album that can keep you warm on a dark,lonely night, or just as happily be blaring from the car stereo on a long summer drive.
A Very Underrated Album, But A Excellent Get. 21 May 2009
By Brent Hilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well I Can't understand why most haven't heard of this great alt pop band. They deserve more praise than they got. This album is one well-rounded recording that was released in mid early 90's and wasn't given much thought at the time or present. I was one of those people until I re-listened to the album and was shocked on how it's held up for these many years, It's still that fresh and not dated. I mean I bought this album as an afterthought, listen to it. But thought it was ok to listen to at the time and didn't pick up for awhile until recently, then i realized that was awesome record. I think anyone interested in alt music should listen to this. If you like stuff like the cranberries and other music like that, than you'll dig this record. Every cut or track on this album is great. Madder Rose is great band, that combines alt know how with wonderful pop hooks that stick to brain after listening to it. I'd recommend pick up a copy today.

Highly Recommended.

Absolutely love this album, wish they had many more. If you love Belly, Magnapop, or any of the other under-appreciated chick bands of the 90s then you'll love this album.

It was the early 90's when I just recorded 45 minutes of a pretty good show on WVFS, Florida State's station. At the end of one side, a song played for 3 & something minutes & then got cut off. I moved west, playing that tape like a mix tape and that song haunted me. To this day, almost every time I listen to it, I fall back on the nearest couch or bed and trance out. I have played that song for all the roommates I've had working seasonally across the West, over a decade, had it played on the radio, taken it to Portland record shops, emailed and MP3 I made of it to friends, asking everyone what it was. Lots of guesses, but nothing. Then Shazam showed up! The song stumped it... That was a year ago. But tonight, Soundhound nailed it. It's been 20 years of wondering if I'd ever figure it out. I can't believe how much it's haunted me. I am so looking forward to hearing more of this Madder Rose as the album comes in the mail AND I will finally be able to hear the end of the song I know now as Waiting For Engines.

So my most enthusiastic five stars ever for an album of which I have only heard one song, and not even the whole song at that.
