1.0 out of 5 stars Purchasers beware! 7 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Arrived today and turned out to be a music sampler, had only half the tracks and these were mainly classed as "snippets". To rub salt in the wound, the small print on the cd states "For promotional use only - not for sale".

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing 21 July 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought "Down Here" trying to respond the curiosity "The burdens of being upright" created on myself. This is much better than the first album from Tracy Bonham which had such wonderful songs as "Bulldog" or "Kisses". "Down here" is something more, not as short songs, that mix rageous rock with classical instruments...
The best track in my opinion is "You don't know me" it has something special... but "Fake it", "You can't always not get what you don't want" and "Cold day in hell" are amazing too...
I bought this album right in 2005 and it's a shame because it was published on 2000... anyway is one of my favourites! THANK YOU TRACY

4.0 out of 5 stars Yery funky, very good 23 Jun 2000
Format:Audio CD
Thsi album see TB take a big step forward. The songs are much funkier. There are of cousre some heavier songs on the album as well as the quite ones and even a solo of her playing the violin. But all in all you can really bop your head to this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious contribution! 9 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album is musically very well produced and written, enjoyable and easy to listen to. However, it is not as ironic or funny as 'Burdens' and so is a complete turnaround in her style. However, the lyrics are still deep and meaningful and a lot can be got from this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars a rip-roaring, great rock album 23 Sep 2000
By S Cook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Most people will recall Tracy from her MTV buzz clip for the track, "Mother Mother" off of her first full length album, "The Burdens of Being Up Right." But if you don't actually own one of her albums then you don't know what you are missing.
Tracy is a classically trained violinist who can craft beautiful pop songs like "Second Wind" or gritty little rock numbers like "Behind Every Good Woman" and "Meathook." This cd even shows improvement since the last. There seems to be more flow to this one.
One thing I've always liked about Ms. Bonham is that she can work her violin into the music. Make it a part of something. Other groups such as That Dog and The Rentals (incidentally it's the same violinist) tend to stick violin solos here and there.
This is an all around awesome album. I'd recommend it to both guys and girls. It's certainly not 'chick rock.'
And if for no other reason, pick it up because she is a really nice person!

5.0 out of 5 stars Even Better Than 'Burdens'... 19 April 2000
By Raynna Leigh Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Tracy Bonham blew me away when she released the amazing debut "Burdens of Being Upright", and I listened to the album continuously for months. When I feel like rocking, I take it out still. This album, after only 4 full listens, completely eclipses the debut. She's grown so much in terms of songwriting and melodies (and her violin is perfect), but her lyrics are still the beautiful poetry they were on 'Burdens'. This album is more like therapy than anything. My therapist thinks it's funny, because I refer to Tracy as my shrink during our sessions. Freed is a very self-aware and honest track, and the violin intro is beautiful. The single Behind Every Good Woman has got to infuse every woman out there with fresh energy and strength. Or maybe it's just me? No matter; the bottom line is, Tracy has made it clear that she's not a one-album wonder with this flawless disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars I was afraid I wouldn't like this but... 29 Sep 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have a tendency to not like more than one album by an artist, but tracy bonham is as firy and passionate on this cd as she was on her first. her wit and sarcastic edge are not lost either. from the feminist feel-good song of the century "behind every good woman", which jars it's way through your brain as it is undoubtably catchy and interesting, to "jumping bean", a bouncy, exhilarating song of self-proclamation, to the pensive and meaningful "give us something", this album will take you places.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yes, the potential is there 18 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A lot of the either reviews here talk about Tracy Bonham's need for a better producer, stronger songs, more focus, etc. I agree. She has great potential but some of her lyrics are heavyhanded and/or commonplace. The music is well-crafted with a lot of variety in the hooks, but the hooks are not all that original. I think Tracy has a great voice and her violin gives some interesting color to the songs where it is heard. Let's hope that her next CD will show more development.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spin A Second Beauty 16 Oct 2004
By Benjamin Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Tracy Bonham proves she has a softer side...for maybe two tracks. The rest is pure alternative rock with weird, edgy lyrics and a fine grasp of JUST how well violin fits in with rock. (Yellowcard needs to team up with her...)

Her voice is still infectious, you can't get around it's uniqueness. Her lyrics this time are a little more...purposeful. We are left with songs like Meat Hook though, where we feel just a bit confused. Jumping Bean seems like a sequel to Navy Bean (even mentioning it in the song!) and Behind Every Good Woman is an anthem to just about anyone.

Not that she *exactly* tours much anymore (but I anticipate she will with her new album dropping soon) but if you can see her live, do it. It's an experience that only barely surpasses just how amazing her discs are.
