Selon mon bagage je n'aurais jamais dû entendre parler des GIN BLOSSOMS et pourtant ...
Ce groupe américain , originaire de l'Arizona , existe depuis 1987 et nous propose une synthèse entre le rock et la
pop , des plus originales !
Pas très prolifique et inégal , le groupe réussi un petit chef-d'oeuvre avec cet album ''Major Lodge Victory'' , qui
date de 2006...
L'album idéal pour concilier une fille de 18 ans avec son père , qui en a trente de plus !
Exit les Yes ( papa , c'est d'la daube ), les Status quo ( encore les bucherons ), les GIN BLOSSOMS ont le mérite
de ne pas se faire ''jarreté '' de l'auto-radio !
Entre ''SUM 41 & THE FRAY '' , un mélange très mélodique inter-génération !
Le vieux-con , citeraient des influences du côté des ''Smitherens'' ou des ''Bodeans '' !
Bref , ci vous frisé dangereusement avec la cinquantaine que vous voulez épater votre fille ou votre fils ,
GIN BLOSSOMS est à acquérir d'urgence !

HASH(0x9cab74e0) étoiles sur 5 Classic GB's with a twist of Rembrandts...perfect!!! 16 août 2006
Par Larry Davis - Publié sur
Format: CD
All I say is nice nice VERY nice!!! Having Danny Wilde present on the album is a VERY good thing, as Danny is a powerpop master, and their styles compliment each other awesomely. More on that later, but first a little history...

Two of my fave bands are essentially 2 sides of the same coin: the Gin Blossoms and the Refreshments. Both bands are from Tempe, AZ, and have roots in the same breezy southwestern rock & roll sound. The Refreshments are now Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, and they take that sound into more of a twangy, alt-country, Springsteen & Mexican-influenced direction, with killer shows and amazing records like the powerpoppy 2004 release "Americano!". The Gin Blossoms, however, take that sound into classic, harmony-drenched powerpop, which is just incredible. YET, their live shows are looser, totally fun and much more chaotic rock & roll, whilst never losing sight of the tunefulness of their songs.

The GBs got together in the mid-to-late 80s and released their first album "Dusted" independently, on vinyl only on the tiny San Jacinto label. Jesse Valenzuela was their original lead singer at the time too, which changed over time. They then gigged heavily over the next few years, built up a following, and after a victorious SXSW gig, won a deal with A&M. They recorded a botched debut for the label in 1990 with Albhy Galuten in LA, probably after his work on Jellyfish's AWESOME debut "Bellybutton" (the GB's powerpop roots and musical preferences are completely evident here...I wonder if any copies of this record have surfaced as bootlegs??), then regrouped and recorded the "Up & Crumbling" EP and then 1992's masterful, desert-island-worthy "New Miserable Experience" (deservedly reissued 10 years later as a 2CD deluxe edition). Doug Hopkins was unfortunately fired due to his alcoholism and depression, as the band probably felt he was bringing them down with him like a sinking ship...he then was so bummed as they had hits with his songs, understandably so, they had a big blowup and he then committed suicide, sad, but, gotta move on right???

Well, after touring relentlessly for NME, and radio catching on to their sound 1-2 years after it's release, generating 4 late-blooming hits (the powerpop classics "Hey Jealousy", "Found Out About You", "Until I Fall Away" and "Allison Road"), kept a followup from happening anytime soon. "Congratulations, I'm Sorry" finally appeared in 1996, generating 4 more hits (the soundtrack cut "Until I Hear It From You" written by Jesse Valenzuela with powerpop master Marshall Crenshaw, "Follow You Down", "Day Job" and "As Long As It Matters"), but the fatigue set in along with pressures from the label and desire to pursue other projects, so the band temporarily "broke up", probably partially to get out of their A&M contract. So, the label put out a half-hearted but acceptable hits collection in 1997.

The band then did other things, and some side projects emerged, Robin's + Phil's band the Pharaos 2000, who later became the Gas Giants and released their one great album "From Beyond The Back Burner" on the short-lived Atomic Pop label. Jesse became an outside songwriter and collaborated with people like Phoenix, AZ resident Stevie Nicks and released his wonderful debut solo album "Tunes Young People Will Enjoy", which is anything but a "kid's" album. Robin opened Mayberry Studios and Bill became a rare book dealer. Robin then fulfilled a dream, and did an album for a fictional cartoon band The Poppin' Wheelies, with cool artwork, pure powerpop tunes that Robin mostly wrote himself, along with 3 songs by powerpop master Tommy Keene, including his classic "Places That Are Gone". Jesse then collaborated with the Odds' Craig Northey under the name National Park, which evolved into the simpler-named Northey Valenzuela and released a self-titled album in 2006 on Universal's label The Lab via Fuel 2000. Oh yeah, and Scotty Johnson joined Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, played loads of gigs with them, and appeared on their first 3 albums, 1999's "Honky Tonk Union", 2000's "Real To Reel" live album, and 2002's "Sonoran Hope & Madness". He then left the band, why??? To rejoin the reunited Gin Blossoms, that's why!!!

Well, after reuniting and gigging for the past 4 years, the reunited Gin Blossoms, minus drummer Phil Rhodes, released a new album, their first in 10 looooong years, "Major Lodge Victory" on the small Hybrid label, and it's frikking AWESOME!!!!! 12 tracks of all killer, no filler, 45 minutes of substantial, harmony-drenched powerpop greatness. The band is in fine form, and Robin's in great voice. The tunes are gems, ALL of them, and the guys have stories to tell since they've been gone a decade, as you would expect. Yes, you can tell it's them, but "Major Lodge Victory" is no carbon copy of NME, and I woouldn't expect it to be. If it was, I would have been SERIOUSLY disappointed!!! I heard one big difference, and that is the presence of Danny Wilde, from the Rembrandts. In the songwriting and background harmonies, I think that's really cool, as I am a BIG Danny Wilde fan, and hearing this new GB record, sometimes I can't tell if I'm hearing the Gin Blossoms or Danny/the Rembrandts, and I don't mind at all. All in all, they've collaborated with powerpop people over the years, like Marshall Crenshaw, Tommy Keene, and now Danny. Just proves my instincts about Danny Wilde were all on the mark.

Now, the tunes...all gems. But if I have to pick fave tunes, 2 would have to be "Supergirl" and "Heart Shaped Locket", which is almost like a better "Stacy's Mom".

Looking forward to the next tour!!!!

HASH(0x9ca0690c) étoiles sur 5 It's Been 10 Years, But It Was Worth the Wait! 8 août 2006
Par Brian Hartman - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
For God's sake, BUY THIS CD!! :)

Those of us who've been fans for years have been waiting for this ever since 2000 and the rumors that they were coming back together. I've got to say that I'm definitely not disappointed with their latest effort.

These are all songs in the classic Gin Blossoms, pop, jangly, hook-laden style. The real standouts on the album are "Learning the Hard Way", "Come On Hard", "Someday Soon", and "Super Girl".

The reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because of certain songs like "Let's Play Two" and "The End of the World", which sound to me like filler put in there to flesh out the CD.

For those who are new to the Gin Blossoms (i.e., you were either not old enough to listen to the radio in 1993 or living on a deserted island from then until 1998), think of Fountains of Wayne, with a little more harmony (and I also like Fountains of Wayne, so that's no insult).

HASH(0x9cf09b4c) étoiles sur 5 If You Liked 'em Before... 27 août 2006
Par Mark A. Schreiber - Publié sur
Format: CD
The good news about this album is that if you liked Gin Blossoms before, you'll greatly enjoy this release. There are hooks aplenty, lots of jangly pop-rock guitar, and one melodious mid-tempo rocker after another. Just like old times. This cd sounds like the logical follow-up to "Congratulations I'm Sorry" as if that album was released just last year.

And that's where there is bad news, if you want to consider it as such. After such a long layoff, you might think the band's sound had matured or they had something revelatory to say. Nope! But that's not necessarily a bad thing. Personally I loved their old sound and this is simply more of a good thing. While there aren't any brilliant moments like there were on "New Miserable Experience" and the sound and production is definitely old style, the new cd delivers exactly what we fans want and expect.

Not every band or every cd has to be groundbreaking or life-changing. Gin Blossoms had a great sound that coupled mournful lyrics with catchy pop tunes. I'm thrilled to have the band back just like they were before!

HASH(0x9cab0b28) étoiles sur 5 Blossoms are back, sort of. 27 septembre 2006
Par Russell A. Lorenzini - Publié sur
Format: CD
The Gin Blossom's story will always revolve around the contributions, firing and suicide of founder Doug Hopkins. He wrote six of the 12 songs on the band's major-label debut, "New Miserable Experience," including the album's big hits, "Hey Jealousy" and "Found Out About You." The remaining Blossoms, particularly guitarist Jesse Valenzuela and vocalist Robin Wilson, dispelled the conventional wisdom that any subsequent effort would suffer irreparably without Hopkins. "Congratulations, I'm Sorry," the follow up, did not quite measure up to its predecessor, but it was a strong album which again showcased the band's strong points: catchy, hook and angst-filled songs, tight playing and Wilson's heartbreaking voice. Ironically, in my opinion, anyway, the most engaging songs on the two albums were Wilson contributions, "Allison Road," and "Competition Smile."

Now, after a 10-year hiatus, the Blossoms, sans drummer Phillip Rhodes, are back with "Major Lodge Victory." It is vintage Blossoms, but something is missing. What is lacking is the superlative songwriting that marked the band's halcyon days of the early and mid 90s. "Heart Shaped Locket," "Super Girl" and "Curious Thing" come close, but just. In another irony, the best song on the album, again, in my opinion, is "Jet Black Sunrise," which was written by bassist Bill Leen.

Even though the production team and studio facility are the same as on the 90s hits, the sound is different. Not as punchy. I don't know if it is age, but Wilson's voice, always Gin Blossoms' strong point, sounds thinner and without the conviction of the earlier work.

But the band is back, and I hope it stays around this time. There ain't nothing wrong with a good three-minute pop song, and these guys are masters.

HASH(0x9cab0504) étoiles sur 5 You Know This Album 13 août 2006
Par amazonshopper - Publié sur
Format: CD
You've heard it before. It's exactly what you would expect from the Gin Blossoms, which is why it's so great. This is like catching up with an old friend from your hometown. It isn't going to challenge you like "American Idiot," but it's familiar - unlike the new Guster album which, while good, takes until at least the 4th track before it sounds familiar.

If you thought the Gas Giants was alright, but still didn't quite have that spark of life, and if you thought the Poppin' Wheelies was just silly, and you were thinking it was all over for the talent that was once in this band, you were wrong. Major Lodge Victory sends you right back ten years, but still feels current. It says "Hey, remember that time? Yeah, that was good. What're you up to now? This is what I'm up to!"

It's comforting, it rocks, and it's still got all the same heart they always did. Maybe even better now because they all looked around, tried other things, and decided to come back to what they loved and what they were best at.

Can't recommend this album enough.
