I read some reviews that were comparing these guys to Love, Buffalo Springfield, Byrds etc. On that basis i orded it....and wasn't disappointed. The Byrds influence is obvious and the album is all the more stronger for it. A couple of the numbers get a little over indulgent and some of the songs probably would have benefitted if they'd been cut by about 7 minutes in length but that's the only ciriticsm. If you're a fan of the West Coast scene past and present then this is for you.

I have to agree wholeheartedly with the review from byrdbrother.

This album of jangly guitar riffs took me on a wonderful nostalgia trip. Some songs do veer off into drone-rock territory (3 or so) but are no less accomplished for it and if they start to get boring? Skip forward, easy.

I highly recommend this album to anyone with even a passing interest in 60's music as well as the West Coast.

A GREAT freshman record! 26 Aug. 2005
By Eric J. Hradecky - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I find the freshman release of Quarter after VERY SATISFYING! I'm very puzzled by previous (negative) reviews here at Amazon, and wonder if we listened to the same record!?!

Those who gave this record only a single star obviously are not fans of modern psychedelic music. And to call track 5 "Too Much To Think About" a MIND NUMBING 12 minutes (in a negative sense) misses the point of this song COMPLETELY!! I think "Too Much To Think About" is the stand out recording of this cd!

Much like Anton Newcombe and The Brian Jonestown Massacre(who by the way contributes to track 5!) Dominic Campanella has the late 1960's sound down. {If you don't hear the Byrds in his compositions you don't know the Byrds music.} But also like Newcombe Campanella and Quarter After are NOT anachronistic! Campanella has the gift of making modern music sound timeless!

Here are a few names of bands: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Warlocks, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Major Stars, (Syd's) Pink Floyd, th Faith Healers, Dead Meadow, the Dandy Warhols...if you like ANY ONE of these bands, I'm sure you'll like this recording as much as I do.

Be this cd!

Unbelievable. Righteous. Psychedelic. 15 Mar. 2006
By Jon Hunt - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I agree with the other four-and-five-star reviews, here -- are all the people giving this album one star insane? Listening to the wrong album? Enemies of the band with a grudge? Blinkered Brian Jonestown fans who can't accept another band's work? No matter, disregard them: the album is absolutely brilliant. The Quarter After whip up an absolutely righteous pyschedelic steam -- the fuzzed guitars and massed vocals strike *exactly* the place in your heart that the Buffalo Springfield did, or the Quicksilver Messenger Service, or any number of deeply trippy bands-unafraid-to-make-an-unholy-guitar-noise. The songwriting's superb, the singing's great, and the vibe is note-perfect. "The Quarter After" is yet another piece of the Los Angeles Fuzz-Pop puzzle, and one of the best yet. Check it out.

True Psychedelic Revivalists! 3 Jan. 2008
By squidshack - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've enjoyed this amazing record for less than a month now after hearing about the band through other groups such as the Brian Jonestown Massacre (who's leader Anton Newcombe makes a guest appearance here), and I must say I am shocked at the negative reviews given to this album. I (being 17 years of age) am a huge fan of both early groups such as Love, Quicksilver Messenger Service and The Byrds as well as so called 'psychedelic revivalist' bands such as the afore-mentioned B.J.M., Stevenson Ranch Davidians and The Black Angels and I must say that The Quarter After, more than perhaps any other group out there today, can claim to be bringing back the sounds of the sixties.

Between the very Byrds-like harmonies and mix of jangling and fuzzy guitar leads, one could easily assume that they're listening to an authentic 60's west coast record, a mistake which a few of my friends have made. Though other reviews have attacked the group's songwriting, I personally do not see it lacking at all. Many of the songs (Mirror To You, Too Much To Think About) really eat their way into your head with their melodic harmonies and catchy hooks, and you may find yourself humming along to these tunes long after hearing them.

Personally, I am excited to see where this band has to go from here. Most of the modern psychedelic groups today, while being excellent groups, do not echo as much of the actual 60's sound as they may claim, relying more on 90's shoegaze and 80's drone influences to construct their sound. The Quarter After, however, are the real deal.

Anyways, in wrapping up, this is one of the best groups out there today. Don't be dissuaded by the negative reviews and check out the band yourself (as you should always do)!

Among the best 11 Oct. 2007
By Karris - Published on
Format: Audio CD
60's rock/pop/garage is an idiom of its own at this point. The sooner people accept this, the sooner they can stop wondering why people still play it. Might as well ask why anyone still writes and plays punk, blues, jazz or ska. If you don't like the style, than you will never appreciate bands like this, just as I don't appreciate hip hop or Justin Timberlake. Just as people who hate jazz probably shouldn't listen to it.

That out of the way, The Quarter After are the real deal. Among many bands who do play 60's style music, they, like their contemporaries The Brian Jonestown Massacre (Anton Newcomb helped worked on this CD, among others) not only sound like it, they are it. By this I mean it's as if they stepped out of the period, fully realized and original. Which means their writing abilities are hands above many. The QA not only sounds like the Byrds and Gene Clark, they rival them. Even better, much like BJM and the 80's paisley underground band Rain Parade, they take the sound and make it their own. They are the cream of the crop. Or is it were? This 2005 release is the only thing I've found by them. A rare gem, if so.

Highly recommeded.

The Quarter After isn't that bad 4 Mar. 2008
By duane wirdel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I don't know if we are listening to the same cd. None of the tunes are pedestrian. I like BJM, the Paisley bands and am an avid collector of 60's psych and I think this is a fairly decent freshman outing for this band. Their song "Know Me When I'm Gone" is a great Byrds inspired tune and I've been an avid Byrds fan for 43 years (125 cds and counting). Comparing them with BJM is a bit unfair since their influences are not really the same. Also, not to be mean, but at least Quarter After play their instruments in tune (unlike the mostly horrid and out of tune sitar and sitar playing on BJM cds). I know what an in tune sitar sounds like, as I've played one for 25 years. I have this cd and have not been bored by it. It could have been a bit more dynamic, but the pelting that it's gotten here is undeserved. Its a very good debut cd.
