4.0 out of 5 stars The Jayhawks Best., 20 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Tomorrow the Green Grass (Audio CD)
Of course its better than HOLLYWOOD TOWN HALL, which sounds positively stale compared to this. Its more uplifting, and the songs rock more. Just listen to the first 3 tracks. The record just feels really genuine and honest. Nostalgia is a common theme running throughout this album - "Supper will be ready at Six-Fifteen" Olsen croons on ANN JANE. The Jayhawks can do intelligent pop, without disappearing up their own arses.
The strings-laden BLUE starts the album off, with Olsen asking "Where have all my friends gone?" and includes great couplets like "Always thought I was someone, turned out I was wrong." Next up it's the galloping, piano led rock out I'D RUN AWAY, which maintains the high standard, and lyrically is similar to Squeeze's 'Up The Junction'. Oh and there's the catchy BAD TIME, with Sharleen Spiteri on backing vocals and the suicidal SEEN HIM ON THE STREET. The album tackles an amazing array of subjects, and is musically and lyrically varied. So although the TOMORROW THE GREEN GRASS starts out feeling BLUE it ends with TEN LITTLE KIDS a life-affirming guitar workout bringing back the feeling of the last day of school.
