HASH(0x963175dc) out of 5 stars Maybe the best debut of the 90's 7 Jun. 2000
By Pinner Blinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gangly garage-rock guitar riffs, breathy French-accented female vocals, catchy tunes with insightful lyrics that capture the exuberance as well a good measure of the angst of youth. "In the Shadows", "No Guarantee", "Point of View", "Don't Believe a Word"--songs like these deserve better praise than I can possibly jot down here. You must listen for yourself! One of the top CD's of the 90's, I think. Their follow-up, "Apartment Life", though very good, falls into a safer pop groove. I'm looking for their third one to be the first great album of the new millenium.

HASH(0x96317630) out of 5 stars The light at the end of the grunge tunnel 13 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ivy is able to capture the essence of alternative college station rock without being tuneless, whiney, and just plain boring. It's a shame that this group doesn't get played on the radio, because if they did, they'd bump pseudo-intellectual indie garbage bands like Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox 20, and Third Eye Blind straight out of the charts and off radio stations' playlists. It's soft, gorgeous, and melodious without being wimpy. It's fantastic.

HASH(0x96317804) out of 5 stars Ivy Has Definitely Come Off to a Great Start with Realistic 8 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I got this album after hearing someone in a record store play some of it over the loudspeakers upon having asked what group I was hearing months later I bought it and was just as impressed as I expected to be. Ivy's music is quite catchy, melodic and relaxing! Unlike alot of the thoughtless trash they deluge you with with in much of today's music Ivy has a sound that is uncommonly beautiful and rare. In short if you love catchy, Melodic groups like for example "The Cardigans" like I do and hate heavy and gloomy music you'll definitely love Ivy.

HASH(0x96317d38) out of 5 stars IVYS FIRST "Realistic" LACKS "Apartment LIFE" 25 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are interested in buying an Ivy CD than buy "Apartment Life", definitely their best CD so far..and definitely underappreciated...."Realistic" is the beginning of what came in "Apartment Life"....It is a good CD but not as polished as the latter....Still if you are an Ivy fan than buy this CD because it is still good, just not as great as "Apartment Life"...the songs tend to run into each other kind of sounding the same....but again it is a good CD, just not great.

HASH(0x96317c78) out of 5 stars Classic Ivy, well made 11 Jan. 2005
By Travis Owens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first discovered Ivy after hearing 'Apartment Life' and loved it, even if some people said the guitars riffs weren't original. Ivy has a delightfull pop appeal to them.

I was biased to believe this album wouldn't be as good as their other work since it's now 11yrs old but surprisingly if they had released it today, I wouldn't have even suspected it was older material. Ivy's sound hasn't changed much, and in this case it's a good thing.

If you loved Apt Life, then get 'Realistic' as I would call it the sister album, same exact style, 90% as good as the original.
