Album Notes
The Washington Times!

By Derek Simmonsen

---Most cover bands are lucky to get one or two original songs in during a long night playing worn-out radio hits to local bar-hoppers. The Worry Stones, however, seem to have reversed the typical cover band dilemma; the Arlington band plays mostly original tunes, even at bars where new music is not looked on with favor.

"That's been our saving grace," says singer-guitarist Tim Metz, 27, via cell phone. "We kept searching for the perfect cover songs, but then people kept telling us that our original music was so much better than our cover music."

Gaining that kind of following has helped the Worry Stones become a rather familiar name to many local music fans and made them regular fixtures at Rock Bottom Brewery in Bethesda, Whitlow's on Wilson in Arlington and Fat Tuesday's in Fairfax.
......(Unrelated info removed from article here)......

This month the band will be celebrating its three-year anniversary with a new album due in March and a live album later in the year. Mr. Metz has been putting together bands since his high school days at Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, where he met the band's other guitarist-singer, Erich (who, like Prince, prefers to use one name only). The two played in a couple of other groups through high school and afterward, until the Worry Stones came together in January 2000.

The group also features Jay Rapoport on piano and organ, drummer Adam Dawson and bassist Jeff Nesmith- all of whom are in their mid- to late-20s. All of the band's members are essentially full time, though many have part-time jobs or give music lessons on the side.
For Mr. Metz, it's a dream come true.

It wasn't until I was 20 that I really started thinking that maybe I didn't have to have a career in something else," he says. "Since I was 6, I was in every chorus I was always singing."

The band released its debut in September 2000[NOVA Custom], only nine months after forming. Mr. Metz wrote most of the songs for that record, though he points out that many of the best songs were actually collaborations. Almost all the Worry Stones' new songs are group efforts, he says."We still have arguments," he says. "But now they're quick and short arguments, and we know where they're heading. We like to work in everyone's ideas. The music always gets better with more opinions."

The band's second album, due in March, has a tentative title, "You Don't Know What You're in For." It captures the band's live sound much better, Mr. Metz says, and should include many tunes that have been favorites in the local club scene.

The Worry Stones hope to hit the road in the coming year, building up the grass-roots fan base that is already fairly strong in the area. As for its second gig at the 9:30 Club, the band is already excited.

"It was phenomenal last time," Mr. Metz says. "With 1,200 people to play for, it's great. The crowd is really receptive."

Who are these guys anyway, you know?
Tim, a rootsy singer, always working, singing about working things out so they don't spiral out of control: typical Irish. And he's certainly the first singer to use the word 'equestrian' in a rock and roll song. I've long been a fan of Adam's drums, the way him and Tim come in together at the beginning of 'Some Things' is just right. Erich's guitar-fueled song, '#3', about a father telling his son to put down the guitar and come home, is one of the best on the record. How you can want to stand that naked with this band churning out all that sound? Man, that's guts.
Jay's organ and piano are one of the band's key sounds: sometimes 5-note hooks, sometimes Carribean, sometimes classical. And Jeff, their new bass player, God's height, fingers always moving like his globetrotting legs. The bookend addition he made to 'Dreams' is hilarious. It's too easy to not applaud their music as much as it deserves because it instantly sounds like it's always been ours, like it's always existed: like they claimed to invent summer afternoons and ice cream trucks, hey man these things have always been beautiful and have always been mine and who are these guys anyway, you know?


Wow, what a find!!!
I love albums that keep me interested with each and every song. 'You Don't Know What You're In For' is a perfect example of this. There are great vocals, rhythm and all around sound much like Sister Hazel, O.A.R and Oval Opus. If you love any of these bands you'll love Worry Stones.


Easily the best CD I have bought in years
Once I played this CD for the first time, it did not come out of the player for maybe twelve iterations of all 10 tracks. Each song, while stylistically distinct, blends into its sucessive track like caramel and honey. The lyrics are simple and deep, very singable, and they are sung in consistently fantastic harmony. And the piano, drums, and guitar will have you nodding your head and tapping your foot within seconds of the first track. I say this will all deferrential candor: you will love this CD.


best album i've ever stumbled upon
This CD is amazing, I sampled one track, and I bought it immediately. If you like to sample artists or if you like indie rock type groups, you should definately check this cd out!

Good Stuff ... Good Clean Fun!
"Don't know what you're in for" is a great second release from the Worry Stones. It captures their energy as well as showcases their talent as musicians and songwriters. "Friday Night Fights" and "I Can't Believe" have both great lyrics and complex music. Similarly, "I might" will resonate with anyone who's ever experienced unrequited love. Rounding out the CD, is "Land Lover," a song to which even the most reserved people would have a hard time resisting the urge to get up and dance. In addition, the remakes of "Salt Shaker" and "Turn Around" capture the essence of the Worry Stones sound and are welcome complements to the new songs on this CD. All in all, a great CD. You can listen to it at work, in the car, at a bar, at home, etc. Once you put it in the CD player, you will not want to take it out! Buy it, you'll be glad you did! Better yet, get two copies so you can listen to one at work and one at home or in the car -- perhaps you need to buy three?
