Frosting on the Beater should not work. The marriage of harmonies and grunge should sound artificial and in total opposition harmonically. In fact it works magnificently is that the grunge is powerpopified and the melodies are all inventive and suprising - being stretched or clipped when you least expect them to work around the arrangements . The result is songs like Flavour of the Month and Solar Sister which stay in your brain forever. Thirteen years on it is as influential and fresh as ever. This is, very simply , the Revolver of powerpop.

Now if they'd only put their version of I am the Cosmos on too ....

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME on 28 Dec 2003
Format: Audio CD
Frosting on the Beater is an example of guitar-pop at its finest, The Posies finding themselves alongside such acts as Buffalo Tom, Jellyfish, Scud Mountain Boys, Sugar, Teenage Fanclub & Velvet Crush as a classic jangly-guitar band, both post-Beatles/Big Star & post-Husker Du/Replacements. Crudely labelled grunge, as they stemmed from Seattle, they found themselves signed to Geffen (home to Hole, Nirvana & Sonic Youth)- though FOTB really seems to be looked over then and especially after. This is the album Lemonheads only really half delivered, 48-minutes of dark melodic pop bliss that ranks up there with other similar cult joys as Sloan and Matthew Sweet.
Don Fleming (Bandwagonesque, Sweet Oblivion)is the ideal producer, capturing the band in tight, melodic glory- this is really where a band like Ride should have gone, rather than the retro path they chose instead. Every track is a classic, from the pulsing opener Dream All Day to single Solar Sister & Flavor of the Month (which amusingly was not only a great pop single, but nodded to the fashionable music scene they were a part of). Like heroes Big Star (whom Auer & Stringfellow would join when Chilton & Stephens decided to reform Big Star in the 90s), there is a dark side to the perfect guitar-pop- recalling Radio City and such records as Sixteen Blue (The Replacements), Games (Husker Du) & What She Said (The Smiths). It's sad that bands like Weezer get cited over this lot- as too the silly EMO-scene- Jimmy Eat World are basically a tribute band to this neglected one! Love Letter Boxes nods to the dark stuff, while Definite Door, Burn & Shine & 20 Questions have the same sonic allure as the rejuvinated Neil Young (from Eldorado to Arc Weld).

Frosting on the beater is sadly an un-heard masterpiece of our generation. This album flows from song to song like no other and is a total must buy. It may not be a fashionable album (in this electronic age) but I rate this as high as classics such as Air's 'Moon Safari', Jeff Buckley's 'Grace' , Big Stars 'Sister Lovers' and TFC'S 'Bandwagonsesque'.
Take a listen and you will fall in love forever...

It's rare to come across an album of such wealth and beauty. Loved by bands and jurno's a like. The Posies were / are(?) the perfect balance of post Sonic Youth guitar rock and the power pop genius of Big Star.
Frosting on the Beater, the second studio, is without doubt their crowing glory. The fact this has for so long been overlooked by a generation of grunge-ites is bordering on criminal. There must be a law against it somewhere, surely?!
From the off, "Dream All Day", "Solar Sister", strong-arm pop classics right through to the very last note of the heartbreaking "Coming Right Along" this is an album of intelligence and beauty.
This album may not change your life, but it will sure give it a good go!
