HASH(0x98e7c45c) out of 5 stars America's and Britain's monopoly of Classic Rock is broken! 27 Aug. 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I think Shonen Knife is like the cats they sing of; you either love them unconditionally or you don't. Rock Animals is my third Shonen Knife CD. Unlike Let's Knife and Brand New Knife, Rock Animals slows down a bit but doesn't lose one ounce of the magic that makes Shonen Knife unique. This time we are treated to several gems such as Little Tree, Another Day, and Music Square. All very lilting, excellent pieces they are teamed up with traditional Shonen Knife tunes like Catnip Dreams, Concrete Animals, and Johnny, Johnny, Johnny. These three wonderful ladies from Osaka again treat us to their unique "take" on the world around us; a little screwy, equally humorous and sad, but always wonderous. I wish I'd have learned of them long ago.

HASH(0x98e7c8c4) out of 5 stars the reviews are right. strange but cool. 29 Mar. 1999
By L. K. D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i was pretty bewildered upon first listen to this cd. after all, hadn't i payed good money for it? hadn't i waited months for its release? i'd never heard their stuff before, so i didn't know to expect tbat not only would i be listening to the cd the whole way through another two times in a row, but that i'd start humming along to the at-times bubble-gummy tunes. whatever else i say, i have to give them credit for being able to sing and play, yet would hesitate to reccomend this to anyone not prepared to step outside of pop. for those who've heard this cd, they know what i'm talking about, and for those who haven't i'd say take a chance even though they haven't got any songs up on the site that you can listen to. at best, you'll find a great band, and at worst, you'll discover a great band that's a little different.

HASH(0x98e7c8e8) out of 5 stars Japanimals. 29 Sept. 2003
By H3@+h - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Like other reviewers have said, you either become a "knife-head", or you cut them from your collection. I could never do that because I love this group. They're one of those bands that I've listened to for years, and when I mention them, people say "who"? The songs are very catchy, and the Japanese voices/accents on these girls almost demand that you fall for their cuteness. The sound is indie-pop-punk, but the lyrics are all "Dr.Seuss" and lovey dovey. And while some songs rock, others are all soft and happy. It's a cool album to get into, and will go great between your "Ramones" and "Lush" cd's.

HASH(0x98e7cc0c) out of 5 stars SHONEN KNIFE 101 22 April 2003
By Larry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Urban legend has it that if THE MONKEES had gender reassignment surgery, wore colorful matching jumpers, ditched the goofy one and moved to Japan they'd be SHONEN KNIFE. I, however, beg to differ. Consider the evidence. Would those 60's relics be able to come up with eleven jamming tunes that would have you rocking and smiling at the same time? Would Davey and company be even remotely genius enough to swipe a killer riff from JUDAS PRIEST'S "LIVING AFTER MIDNIGHT" and fracture it into a loving tribute to brown mushrooms? Surely, I think not!!!
Get the knife and see the light!!!

HASH(0x98e7cd38) out of 5 stars Definitely something different! 20 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Shonen Knife is definitely one of the most entertaining imports you'll ever come across. Hearing the singer mangle the word "photosynthesized" during Tomato Head is worth the price alone... OK, the fact that "Tomato Head" contains the word "photosynthesized" is worth the price alone. OK, the fact that the album contains a song called "Tomato Head" makes it worth the price alone! A fun, wacky album.
