The Sebadoh are a band whose music is not only aggressive rock, but subtle with melancholy undertones. These many layers make this album well worth buying. However, tracks such as 'Sixteen' and 'Telecosmic Alchemy' are a little experimental. For those not familiar with Lou's song-writing style, these as well as tracks such as 'Sister' and 'Flood', may be a bit too proggressive. Try buying 'The Sebadoh' first, and when your ears consider themselves ready, buy 'Bubble and Scrape'!!!

Bubble and Scrape is a great Sebadoh album and the extra tracks here add to its value. The style of the extra tracks is a bit different though, like Sebadoh 3 but completely electric. Many of them are essential for anyone who likes Sebadoh. There is a fascinating set of instrumental collages in Parts 1-4 (the Jason Loewenstein contribution part 4 is especially good), and another great Sebadoh cover in Reject.

An unnecessary reissue 5 July 2008
By Scott Richardson - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I'm giving this 4 stars because I'm a fan of the album itself. However, I didn't notice a huge change sonically over the initial CD release, and the bonus tracks are, for the most part, bad. I thought the Sebadoh III reissue was fantastic, and the bonus tracks were overall quite good. Unless you're a rabid Sebadoh completist, if you already own "Bubble & Scrape", you probably don't need this.

fantastic disaster. 12 Jun. 2006
By Mike K. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album kind of presents the band as three pretty different kinds of songwriters, which can make it feel frustratingly choppy and schizophrenic, but also makes it entertainingly unpredictable. Lou Barlow presents himself as the sensitive, heart-on-sleeve one, with melancholy melodies and emotionally direct lyrics like "guilt is a stupid thing, don't let it make you stay/ leave me if you're wanting someone else, I'll be okay". Though his lyrics occasionally approach lovelorn cliche, his sincere delivery mostly manages to make them believable and affecting, and he also provides most of the album's more immediate melodies. Jason Loewenstein is overall fairly compatible with Barlow; though his lyrics can be little more abstract and his material can get a little bit noisier, his songs are pretty sympathetic in tone to the Barlow ones. But then completely out of left field we have the oddball noise-punk of Eric Gaffney. While his contributions are pretty acquired taste, and usually don't end up making much musical sense, he always brings some interesting ideas to the table, and unlike the Barlow and Loewenstein numbers, I honestly haven't heard anything quite like them. There's a few clear traces of Minutemen and Sonic Youth influences, but he makes it fully his own with queasy chord changes, psychotic screaming, and unpredictable shifts in structure and even genre ("Fantastic Disaster" keeps jumping into bizarre out of tune harmonica/piano breaks, "Emma Get Wild" starts out as a surf/jazz instrumental before suddenly turning into a slightly unhinged Daydream Nation rocker, "No Way Out" fades out after about a minute, then devotes half of it's run time to a bizarre collage of unintelligible sped up voices and clips apparently taped off the radio). There seems to be an attempt to make it flow a little better by pairing off songs by whoever happens to be singing lead at the time, but in a way this emphasizes the differences in approach even more. Honestly it feels a little like listening to the a and b-sides of singles by three different bands that are only similar in that they all feature lo-fi production and ragged playing. Still, overall this is a pretty good listen for anyone exploring mid-90's underground rock.

one of my favorite albums. lovely. 16 Sept. 2005
By Bouqet for a Siren - Published on
Format: Audio CD
sebadoh always rocks. always. and i would have to say that this is definitely their strongest album. the band demonstrates its versatility, executing tender love songs like "think (let tomorrow bee)", hard-rocking, balls to the walls tunes like "flood", and weird, dissonant, folkcore fests like "bouqet for a siren" and "elixir is zog" with equal ability. this is also one of sebadoh's finest line-ups, with lou barlow, jason loewenstein, and eric gaffney on drums. gaffney is a great drummer and he brings some strong material to the album. sadly, this is, as another reviewer noted, his swan song. bob fay, the drummer who succeeded him, just doesn't cut it.

bubble and scrape combines the discordant, lo-fi sounds of earlier albums like the freed weed (which is definitely less listener-friendly and requires a little patience to get used to) with the slicker production quality of later albums like the sebadoh. if you can own one sebadoh album, this is the one.

Could be their best.... 19 Jun. 2004
By Paul Kath - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Sebadoh did alot of different things with their sound. First it was the ultra low fi stuff then the insane verbal assaults from Eric then this.... Which is like an in-between of a clean cut indie sound mixed with a raw anger-filled punk band. Most songs have normal beginnings but then move into Sonic youth territory with lots of incoherent screaming and guitar. Take the opener Soul and Fire. It's a tight normal sounding song, then as we move on with the album we find ourselves covering our ears over Eric's literally insane over-the-top screams like in Elixir is Zog, Flood and Telecosmic Alchemy. Flood is about drug use or doing drugs from what I heard in Eric's offbeat screaming. Elixir is Zog makes little sense but I think it's about date rape for some reason. Telecosmic Alchemy is just another weird punky song. Eric said it's about a comic book ad. Uhhh.
But then there's the songs that board the line of weird and actual music like Bouquet for a Siren, which is one hell of a song, but the off line singing and rampant guitar make it pretty weird within first listen it is a highlight of the album though. Fantastic disaster is another one, starts like a normal song then drives into harmonicas and screaming and alot of weird pedal use. Still it seems to flow and work so damn well. Another weird-ish song is Emma get Wild which reminds me highly of the Minutemen with a different vocalist.
But Barlow can strike back with some REALLY good songs like Cliche, Two years, two days, Forced Love, Hassle, Sacred Attetnion and Happliy Divided. Cliche is actually one of the BEST Sebadoh songs i've personally heard. Soul and Fire seems to be the winner of the best sounding/written song on the album, but I seem to love Cliche a whole lot more. Sacred Attention boarders grunge as does Two years Two Days.
Recommended if you know Sebadoh from the early onward. If you're new then start with The Sebadoh (1999) or Harmacy.

Gaffney's Swan Song 29 Mar. 2001
By godskidbrother - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Lou once said in an interview that the majority of the Sebadoh fanbase holds one album way above the rest. This is understandable, because face it, their sound has been anything but consistent over the progression of their first four albums (not that this is a bad thing) For me, this record is where Eric's songwriting truly shines, the way Jason's does on bakesale. Bouquet for a Siren blew me away the first time i heard it and after seven years it hasn't grown stale yet. Granted, it may take a while to grow on you, but the tension that underlies Gaffney's songs brings ENERGY, and makes for fun listening. I am a freed weed and III nut, but there are undeniable glimpses of beauty on B&S and Bakesale, the majority coming from Eric and Jason respectively. I don't think Gaffney gets the respect that his work on Freed Weed, III and B&S deserves, and that's a shame. After B&S, I think that Lou's best stuff is on Take A Look Inside (Folk Implosion) and some Sentridoh stuff. Harmacy and The Seb didn't really do anything for me. But hey, I've never even written one song close to the quality of Lou Barlow, have you?
