5.0 out of 5 stars Sebadoh have done us proud with a scorcher, 16 Dec 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Bakesale (Audio CD)
This is the perfect doh album. I highly urge any fan and newcomer to get this nugget. There are some beautiful love songs and some kickin' rock toons. The recording sounds like it was done in the space of a few days, pure genious. If you can find it, I highly reccomend the Sebadoh Four song CD... There are actually 10 songs on that record, mostly out takes and demos of the Bakesale sessions. Those two records are the best that Sebadoh have done so far. To put a little excitement into your life buy this record now!

5.0 out of 5 stars The new edition, 25 Jun 2011

This review is from: Bakesale (Audio CD)
The first CD contains the Bakesale album, and all the extras are on the second CD (62 minutes). These consist of a few demos of Lou Barlow songs with acoustic guitar and lots of worthwhile experiments in musical dissonance, with several of Jason Loewenstein's best contributions to Sebadoh. This second disc alone would be one of my favourite Sebadoh issues. An absolute must for fans and a good way to start an addiction for Sebadoh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lo-fi American laureate, 18 Jun 2004

This review is from: Bakesale (Audio CD)
Torn between Jason Loewenstein's noisenik tendencies and Lou Barlow's pop instincts, Sebadoh's albums didn't always hang together coherently. But on 'Bakesale' they perfected a happy medium of crunching guitars and irresistible pop hooks.
It's really an album of love songs - and WHAT love songs! Barlow really has a flair for a well-turned line, and his plaintive, yearning voice gives these songs extra bite and poignancy. The production is resolutely lo-fi but this serves to enhance the feeling of immediacy and spontaneity.
Two songs stand out for me: 'Rebound', which is two minutes of brilliant punk pop, and the album's closing track 'Together Or Alone', a tender, resigned lament.
As an example of American lo-fi indie music of the mid 1990s, it really doesn't come any better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Classic, 26 Jan 2013

This review is from: Bakesale (MP3 Download)
This is the best album in my collection. Finally got Sebadoh in MP3 format after having their "4song cd" on vinyl. Real music for real people not for the masses. If you've not never heard of them then steer clear you wouldn't like it. Stick to mainstream pap.
