I'd heard this band in session on the radio 2 show with bob harris one night in my car, and literally had to pull over and turn it up! - it'd be easy to compare them to ryan adams and a million others, but wrong, as their sound is truly all their own, sure, there's a bit of jayhawks, even a little red house painters, and enough melancholy to sink a ship in, which is why i love them - the songs are almost short stories, each and every one about heartbreak and longing, and aching....not remotely happy, but in a good way of course! - this Cd is beautiful, and worth every penny...I dont claim to know too much about them, and i dont need to...the CD speaks for itself....

The best music can make your tummy flip, and make you ache for every lost love, missed opportunity, broken bottle and slammed door. It's rare that a band captures that perfect mix of loss, regret, wry charm, and autumnal melancholy. The Ashtray Hearts do it in style. Music has a long list of unsung bruised balladeers like Medicine Sunday, Sunhouse, Triffids, all of whom know the power of a quietly devastating three chord trick. As great musicians know, it's often what you leave out that counts. Spare acoustic guitar and banjo, muted horns, brushed drums, simple but packing a punch that tears your heart out. "Still Shaking", with it's pictures in dusty frames and backyard musings, is a masterpiece of loss. A sadly beautiful album, which will not find a huge audience, but will find the right one.

Heard them on Bob Harris and saw them in concert about 10 years ago. Oh if you could time back and live it again....!

Have lots of cd's and music has always been a big part of my life but this album has had a big effect on me. It's just so sad and so beautiful and so ...... I'm just not articulate enough!

Glad to see The Ashtrays have another album out and it may well grow on me but in my humble oppinion Old Numbers is just perfection.

I caught a track from these boys courtesy of Bob Harris some time ago, and thought it worth investing in.

I don't mind sticking this in my player from time to time, but in truth this is a rather ordinary set of mournful break-up songs rendered unusual by the quality of the playing, and by the extraordinary delivery of the comatose singer who manages to rouse himself just enough to labour through these torpid dirges. Actually they're not that bad, but break-up songs usually become sweetly painful to the listener particularly if he/she can identify closely with the sentiment. That rarely happens here for me. Disaster is nice, Still Shaking has a very nice banjo rippling through it. The One You're Closest To is painfully slow - as is Anyone's Guess, and Bryn Mawr. I like Country Bar and Spain - slightly more lively. Southern Wedding? Not for me thanks, nor Watching Me Try.

A bit hit and miss then - but I can be lulled into listening right through the whole lot on a dark night drive. But please don't bother if you need to be uplifted

I do feel that they are talented performers - the playing might be compared even as high as with Counting Crows. Maybe someone should poke them with a sharp stick - prod them into life so that we can enjoy more in the mould of Queen South This is the only track on which they cut loose, and they sound real fine.
So come on boys - a bit more like that please.

Heartbreak & Harmony 10 May 2003
By Wade A. Ostrowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This sextet from the north country scenes of Minneapolis brings together a debut that tells of faded friendships, unrequited love, and the distance adulthood brings. The music, infused with the twangs and lilts of Americana, features layers of accordion, trumpet, electric piano, and banjo, creating a rich network of sound cut occasionally by a guitar solo that could have been filtered through an old radio and reverb-drenched riffs that peek through the spaces between verse and chorus. Clear-voiced and articulate vocal harmonies resonate and add further depth to the well-phrased and touching lyrical laments ("I gave away everything I promised you") as well as the shoebox-full-of-snapshots details ("We drove out in separate cars / Across Main Street past the country bar"). As the songs linger and pass from scene to scene, the mood they set is mostly quiet and pensive, but it is punctuated by collective crescendos and moments of raw, electric release. Overall, this first album breathes as a whole and strings together twelve songs perfect for driving throught the deserted streets of your hometown, wondering whatever happened to your first love and what you'll do now that your last is gone.

Great Music for the down times 11 Jun. 2003
By miradu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Ashtray Hearts play great music, and the people in the band rock! They have a unique sound which gives them a kinda somber tone. If you aren't in the best mood, this is the music to listen to. It carries you forward. It sounds great on my Houseboat over the mississippi!
