ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fans of Crowded House, Jellyfish, Squeeze, and XTC, take note! Here's the latest CD from a great mid-west power-pop band.

"Genius pop that sounds not unlike early Elvis Costello taking tea with Squeeze's Glenn Tilbrook, while Lennon and McCartney fuss over the scones in the kitchen." - (John Borack, Goldmine Magazine)

"It's pure pop for now people. Given all that is the music business these days - it's probably never gonna change the world. But it's a better world because Einstein's Sister is in it." - (John Porter, Performing Songwriter)

The best deal on this site!
I was skeptical, but I checked 'em out and it's not hyperbole. The frequent Squeeze, Crowded House, and Costello comparisons are well-earned, and totally deserved. These guys are orginals unto themselves -- but they're working in the same genre as those other acts, and they're *absolutely* in the same league.

Look, I don't work for CD Baby, or Einstein's Sister, or a record company. I'm just a guy who bought their CDs and was truly impressed. Seriously, if your CD collection holds releases by Squeeze, Crowded House, Jellyfish, or early Costello, make room in the "E" section of yourCD shelves for this band. For $15 bucks, you can get three great CDs -- 41 tracks of Einstein's Sister pure pop goodness. It's an utter, utter steal. Really.

A strong effort from a very good band !
The team of Douglas & Tucker from 'Einstein's Sister' certainly understand the art of Pop songwriting.
Elements of Pop/Rock giants 'Squeeze','Crowded House' and 'Jellyfish' can be heard within the lines of Humble Creatures songlist.
A strong effort from a very good band !

great music
This is some of the best pop music I've heard in a long time. It really does have a Neil Finn/Elvis Costello/Squeeze feel to it - but it's original. When I heard the sound clips, I bought every one of their albums. At these prices, you won't find a better value anywhere!

Talk about songs! Great singing too.
Humble Creatures is a wonderful record. It has all of the elements I like in POP music...catchy, strong rockin' beat and GREAT singing! Badfinger, Beatles, Costello...and more. It's all in there while still keeping it original. Good job boys!

E.S. are the true musicians
This album has a melody beyond my imagination... i even used one of their songs THIS IS THE DAY when I gave up my relationship with my girl and she cried the whole night. The tune is cloud-7, like a painter that creates fix outlook... I'll frame your work boys.

Excellent CD! Well-written and performed!
This is a great CD! Reminiscent of Elvis Costello and Squeeze, and touches of The Smithereens on the lead vocals. I highly recommend this CD. It grows on you immediately!

oh my god!
I purchased this album about six months ago based on CD Baby's description and my listening to the available samples. It reached out and grabbed me by the throat. Oh my god! It's still one of my favorite albums!

If Squeeze or Crowded House, or Badfinger or dare I say The Fab Four had made another album, this would have been it. The jangly guitars, the wonderful harmonies, the tunes... Buy this album, listen to it, and then buy the rest of Einstein's Sister's albums. I did.
