Album Notes
Former lead vocalist and principle songwriter of Chryslis (MGM) and part time Mother of Invention, Spider Barbour releases the hounds. Aided & abeted by former touring members of The Band & current members of The Crowmatix, Jimm Eppard & Mike Dunn, Spider's songs float above & beyond the norm like a giant insect or rise from profound depths like the plantive cry of a tortured rodent. More than just songs about animals, Spider's music speaks allegorically to the human condition.

Brilliant songwriting, supported by skilled musicianship, that grows with repeat
Music that balances the head, hands and heart is a rare event, but the Curmudgeons do exactly that on this excellent CD. Bare-boned arrangements highlight rock grooves rooted in the seventies and eighties as brilliant lyrics hover and dip about a field of animal-based references. Think Adrian belew with the Bears, or a rough-polished XTC, and you'll get the idea. Extra points are awarded for the simple yet brilliant packaging. I feel I know Spider's dogs now, and the liner notes are a howl.

Unexpected and extremely enjoyable
I bought this because I know Spider's wife, Anita, and I was curious. It was wonderful. Not what I expected at all. Gentle rock with lyrics that are well crafted and will make you smile. The band themselves obviously enjoy playing together and make a good groove. I am not a big fan of dogs as a rule, more of a pussy man, if you know what I mean! but this CD was something else. I also agree with the previous review about the liner notes.
