5.0 étoiles sur 5 You might not be let down 14 mars 2007
Par Boxodreams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
The place for me: Virginia Beach the summer of "Hey Jealousy" and simply no song coming out of the boardwalk's bars, wtih their razor-sharp sound systems, could match it. It was such a carefree, rocking sound, the sound of a hip outsider guitar pop band breaking big, but the more you listened to Gin Blossoms, the more you heard the undercurrent of sadness and loss. I have simply never been able to let go of this album, to let it slide into the giant pile or racks to join so many other great rock n' roll moments. It just keeps finding its way back to the front. The suicide of songwriter/guitarist Doug Hopkins is written all over this record. Here it all is from the blown-out war games that are so many people's early and mid-twenties. The truth and the lie, together, is that rock and roll saves your life. It does and it doesn't. What it does often do, if you're not a straight-edge career tracker is lead you to places like heartbreaking girls, late-night drinking binges, existential bliss and blues, lost nights outside by campfires, backyards, swimming pools, parking lots, the beach, the woods, palatial and parentless estates, any place kids congregate for the last vestiges of party youth, and all the ache and all the suffering that goes down in those times, no matter how great they are and how vividly they sear your memory. Gin Blossoms, on New Miserable Experience, capture the whole damn thing, the doubt, the anguish, the worry, the hangover, the excitement. The pop structures are gorgeous (perfect "Allison Road"), time-tested folk rock, but the themes, like on the magnificent, troubled "hey jealousy" are of a boozy life on the edge, careless and care-filled, where life and death meets don't give a damn. And the things you would say to a girl, because you are so damn lost, things that you might look back on years later, if you've made it, and know you were scrounging at the bottom, well, you either know or don't know what I'm on about here. So, this is a snapshop and a document of all that and it is so focused and real, not lost in concept or artiface, just straight-on truths from the heart. The music is deceptively simple, but listen and hear the ache and longing. They captured lightning in a bottle.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Drunken self-pity -- raised to an art form. 1 novembre 2005
Par M. G Watson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
Anyone who has ever tried to cope with their emotional problems via cases of cheap beer and knock-off Jack Daniel's will immediately relate to "New Miserable Experience", the high-water mark of the fine but tragically short-lived early-mid 90s rock band the Gin Blossoms.

It would be easy to dismiss the Blossoms as just another self-piteous rock-pop band, but the atmosphere of factory town blues, heartache, hopeless obsession with ex-girlfriends, and general drunken misery is alleviated by liberal doses of humor and self-mockery as well as some clever and even brilliant lyrics. Some of my favorites, from the lesser-known songs on the album:

"So she filled up her sails/With my wasted breath/Each one's more wasted than the other/You can bet." -- Allison Road

"When you're in the company of strangers/or some strangers you call friends...." -- Hold Me Down

"If you don't expect too much from me/You might not be let down" -- Hey Jealousy (okay, this is not a lesser known song, but I like the lyric)

"They say you can't miss/Something that you never had/so tell me why/why I should feel so bad" -- Cajun Song

"Ginmill/Rainfall/What do you remember/if at all?/Only pieces/Of the night" -- Pieces of the Night

This album was best known for producing AOR radio hits like "Hey Jealousy", "Until I Fall Away" and "I Found Out About You." They are most definetly representative of the album, but not, in my opinion, the album's best songs. Unlike most pop-rock efforts, there is virtually no filler to be found here, and the tracks that didn't make radio are every bit as good as the ones that did -- or better.

George Orwell once wrote that good literature spoke to the reader on a one-on-one level -- it made the reader feel like the writer was writing about him, personally: experiences, feelings, moods, attitudes. This album has the exact same effect on me, but musically. If you've ever felt stuck by inertia in a dead-end town, that's "Lost Horizons." If you ever put your life ruinously on hold for a woman you knew would never stay with you, that's "Mrs. Rita." If you ever found yourself acting like a psycho over an ex-girlfriend, "Found Out About You" will make you feel even more like a tool. If you ever felt completely adrift, you were probably living on "Allison Road." And if you ever tried to deal with that that $--t by drinking yourself into utter oblivion, "Pieces of the Night" will be as familiar as your alcohol-soaked brain can remember.

That's "New Miserable Experience." An excellent piece of music from a band that lived up to its tragic expectations for itself, and left us with the eternal piece of lover's wisdom: "It can't be cheatin' -- she reminds me of you."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Rarities Album from Gin Blossoms Breakthrough Years 24 avril 2014
Par Michael P. Sparks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
These "Rarities Edition" collections are usually the stand alone 2nd disc from a previous released "Deluxe Edition" of a album and in the case of Gin Blossom's New Miserable Experience (NME) that is mainly true. It contains 19 of the 22 tracks on the second disc of the deluxe edition not including the exclusive tracks that were released on "Dusted" in 1989. This disc has tracks from 1991-1993 mainly consisting of exclusive EP tracks, outtakes, soundtrack appearances, and live b-sides. Tracks 1-3 are from "Up and Crumbling" EP, 4 is an outtake from NME sessions, 10 is "Idiot Summer" from "Wayne's World 2" soundtrack which has appeared on a few hit compilations, 11 is "Back of a Car" which was recorded for a Big Star tribute album, 12 is a 1994 remix of "Allison Road" (I'm not sure if it was previously released), 13-18 are live tracks from 1993 at the Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA which many were b-sides to many of the NME singles and 19 is "Pieces of the Night" with an alternate piano ending (the original version has made it's way onto a few hit compilations). The difference between "Allison Road '94" and it's album version the remix runs about 2 seconds longer and it is basically a re-recording with different guitars and an overall mix. "Pieces of the Night (with Piano)" runs 15 seconds shorter than it's original album version with the band fading out earlier and the last few bars of the song having only piano playing. This is basically a rarities album from Gin Blossoms breakthrough years (not including b-sides from their follow up "Congratulations I'm Sorry"). This is a great add to your collection if you own at least "New Miserable Experience". If you own "Congratulations I'm Sorry" and "Dusted" you should definitely buy this. If you don't have "Dusted" i'd try to get the full "Deluxe Edition" of NME if you can since it has those 3 songs from "Dusted" added on but it is now physically out of print so it may be hard to find a copy. This is a great companion to the stand alone NME album and must buy if you own the stand alone.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 New Wonderful Experience 25 janvier 2010
Par Virgil Urp - Publié sur Amazon.com

If like me you missed the apparently brief 2002 appearance of the NME Deluxe Edition and have balked at paying the outlandish prices of those offering copies of the Deluxe Edition for sale, relief is at hand. And what a relief it is! There is just about everything to enjoy about this NME Rarities Edition if you are a fan of the Gin Blossoms. The contents are well-described above and and well worth owning and hearing.

RIP Doug Hopkins, long live the Gin Blossoms!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Near-perfect record, an unsung classic. 16 février 2005
Par D. Mok - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
At a certain point in the '90s, critics began using the very band name 'Gin Blossoms' as a derogatory tag to any jangly, pop-heavy band perceived as being lacking in rock and roll edge.

It's a howling injustice, because New Miserable Experience is simply one of the best records of the '90s, holding up even after endless repeat runs, meritorious in all fields -- songwriting, performance, and recording.

Much has been said already about the suicide of first guitarist and chief songwriter Doug Hopkins, and in this case the cliche is mostly true -- Hopkins was the songwriting genius of this band. His work was like the crystallization of Big Star's Alex Chilton and Chris Bell -- Hopkins' songwriting had the rock edge and ragged charm of Chilton, but also the sensitivity and soul of Bell,

A trio of killer songs -- "Lost Horizons", "Found Out about You" and radio favourite "Hey Jealousy", all written solely by Hopkins -- confirms this. "Hey Jealousy" was known as the radio hit that wouldn't die; while it never made it into the Top 20, it lasted so long on the radio charts that Billboard magazine ran an article on the longevity of the song on the airwaves. And listening to it now, it remains what it always was, a blast of perfect pop-rock guaranteed to win over any audience. The moody "Found Out about You" was the breakthrough that had sent this album into double-platinum territory, and it remains unique, taking elements of R.E.M. ,The Byrds, and Big Star into a shimmering, unforgettable pop single. And "Lost Horizons" utilizes a Hopkins trademark -- down-and-out sentiments set to a bright set of melodies and flowing lyrics ("Turn summer trees to bones and ice/Turn insect songs against the night...").

Lead singer Robin Wilson was a secret weapon, one of the sexiest and most melodic singers of the '90s college pop scene, with his wistful vibrato and exuberant phrasing. And while both Wilson and guitarist Jesse Valenzuela's songwriting would deteriorate on Gin Blossoms' next record Congratulations I'm Sorry, here their contributions are impressive: "Until I Fall Away" is a dreamy and soulful ballad, "Mrs. Rita" is spritely fun, and "Hold Me Down" features an engaging, observant lyric with one of the best uptempo backing tracks this band has ever cooked up.

This band would eventually be known as something of a one-hit wonder , and with some reason, because it would only produce two more good songs after New Miserable Experience -- "'Til I Hear It from You" (from the Empire Records soundtrack) and "Follow You Down". However, that doesn't make New Miserable Experience any less great a record. I know that many of my friends and I during our college years literally worshipped this record, learning the songs on guitar and singing along, and it's still one of those rare records you can put on without ever skipping songs around.

This "special edition" doesn't greatly increase buying incentive -- the additional materials are unimpressive. The live tracks aren't anything special, with muddy recording low on guitars and vocals; Wilson sounds great in the studio but sounds like an out-of-breath Richard Marx on the live recordings! The cover of "Folsom Prison Blues" is limp, and the additional songs not really up to the standards of the regular songs from the album. I'd say unless you're a die-hard Gin Blossoms fan, buying the single-disc regular edition of this album would be enough. I love this band, but even I thought this package was unnecessary.
