I Remember When I Was Pretty

(Lagwagon, Bad Astronaut, Sugarcult, Joey Cape, Rentals, Popsicko)

Suburban Home SBH 58

Released on December 4, 2007

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

There’s a refreshing honesty and authenticity to The Playing Favorites that can’t be fabricated. Their debut album “I Remember When I Was Pretty” plays like a tribute to a collective and possibly checkered past of a circle of friends.

This is an iffy album. With four different vocalists it's hard to predict what it will sound like. It's pretty well impossible to say that the Playing Favorites even have a front man. The joey cape songs seem the best ones to me. One of the guys has a really annoying voice which made his songs almost impossible to listen to. The other two vocalists are good.

This is a pop-punkish album. Despite having four different singers the album does flow pretty well. The best songs on here would have to be Everyone Else In The World, Drug Hugger, Good Years and Wasteland. Mine came with a Suburban Home records sampler as well.

If you're reading this review, considering whether or not you should buy this record, the answer is yes! The guy under me was right, the longer you have with this record, the more you like it. I initially bought this because the Caper is in the band. He does some great songwriting, playing, and singing as per usual.

In interviews, I have heard Joey say that they all just learned each song one at a time, then recorded it, then learned another and so on.

Joey wrote 6 songs (tracks 2,4,5,6,8,13) but I think he also sings back-up vocals on other tracks. Tim Cullen wrote 3 (tracks 1,10,14). Marko Desantis wrote 2 (tracks 7 & 11), and Luke Tierney wrote 3 (tracks 3,9, & 12).

The point is that they are all phenomonal musicians, so the collaboration is really,really genuine and good. They sing on each others songs and really add something new and different to each. They are all old friends, so this record comes out feeling quite natural, even though the band itself is fairly new. Since all of them play in other bands that I had not previously heard, I have been exposed to a lot of great stuff since hearing this record. Do not expect Lagwagon, expect something more along the lines of Bad Astronaut or Joey's solo record. However, the best thing to do is just check it out and jam. It holds its own!

A lot of its very chill, very laid back. If you've heard any of the tunes on this record and liked them, I suggest you get the CD. Although there are so many different songwriters in the band who have made all different types of music over the years in other bands, this band and this record and these songs all go together so well. The sampler it comes with is chock full of great Suburban Home bands, many of which I hadn't heard until I heard this sampler. However, the CD itself does not come with a lyric book, which is a bit of a drag. The whole record clocks in at 45:54. The cover is a painting Joey has in his crib, how sick.

Stop reading about it and buy it, its $8.75 and I would pay twice that for it!

It's only been like a month, but I pumped out reviews on the last four cds I bought almost immediately. While I wanted more time with this one I coulda dropped this review sooner. Oh well. This is really a solid album. The first few listens it isn't anything real spectacular, but it flows well. I liked how (almost) every person in the band had songs to sing and if you didn't know already Joey Cape (of Lagwagon fame) plays guitar and sings six songs according to the booklet. First couple listens, I didn't realize he sung as much as he did. Ha I dunno, dumb moment there. Cullen sung the first song sooo well, I thought he had more than Cape at first.

I also totally bought the description for this album. It is only two sentences, but I agree with that completely here.

Tim Cullen's first song is awesome (Leaving Town) but I guess I haven't gotten into his other ones as much. He only has (three). Luke Tierney sings some awesome songs!!! One of them has a real country-ish vibe but it is strong (Drug Hugger)! The Problems Last his third song is fan-freaking-tastic!

Actually Mick Flowers sings no songs, he is the drummer though I know one of my friends drummed and sung. It's cool either way though. Marko Desantis, sings two songs. One of them is really short, but it is a cool slow song and the second one he sings is pretty good.

Anyhow this album probably won't impress you right off the bat, but it really is a solid realease and if you are a Joey Cape fan he has six songs and plays guitar, keyboards and percussion (listed as such). So I recm'nd it for sure. Feed your indie side. Great album, the longer I had it the more I liked it. It also came with a Winter Sampler from the label and it had a new Love Me Destroyer song (which I didn't think they put out a new album cuz the label's actual site didn't update their page ). So this album accomplished two things, it is a great steady rock album that you can really play anywhere. I love playing it at work.It also showed me that Love Me Destroyer put out a new album. Their first album was raw as nails. That song from their second album on the sampler is lethal! I need to get it, like now here. This site does have their first album but I got that one almost the day after it came out on eBay by the odd chance of searching for Rise Against.

Well, Late. Get this one, or any of the albums, I reviewed :) Some aren't listed anymore because they ran out of stock :(
