Tuneful, intelligent, and heartbreakingly accessible... Oct. 9 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I can't possibly describe the hours of pleasure that "Mavericks" and other Holsapple/Stamey efforts have brought me. I listen to this album, along with all my "dB's" albums, frequently. Time never diminishes the dead-on lyrics, the amazing hooks, the wit, and the feeling that you'd love to hang out with Peter Holsapple because he's a really talented, normal, grounded individual. I realize this is more of a general review of these artists, but they make the world a much better place in which to live. Truly, I'm not exaggerating. For the unenlightened, do yourselves a big favor and LISTEN TO THESE GUYS!

Breathtaking songwriters April 19 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has been a favorite of mine for years, along with other albums by Chris Stamey, "It's Alright" and "Fireworks." Both Holsapple and Stamey are amazing songwriters: each combines intellectual substance, deep emotion, and impeccable artistic taste better than almost anyone I know. Put them together, and you have an instant classic. Their voices are unconventional, and probably described best as an acquired taste, but they can be acquired pretty readily. If you like REM, Marshall Crenshaw, Peter Case, or other creators of literate, slightly offbeat pop songs, you'll likely enjoy them.

Unsung classic July 10 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The first six tracks of this album are nothing short of fabulous original songwriting. Stamey and Holsapple definitely compliment one another, with Holsapple's melancholy, tuneful pieces balanced by Stamey's driving pop/rock sensibility. The duo harmonizes seamlessly, and the album seems produced and assembled with great, introspective vision. It's a shame their collaboration seems to have ended here. Holsapple's solo work tries but mostly misses, while Stamey went on to put out a fantastic somewhat Beatlesque album "Fireworks" which contains one of pop's greatest songs "Something Came Over Me." We just haven't heard from him in a while. Mavericks is an unsung and in many ways solitary classic.

Beautiful love and mischief Oct. 28 2002
By John Caldwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is simply priceless if you enjoy lyrics with soul and guitars with passion. With this acoustic masterpiece, these singers bare their passions of both love, relationships, and the stark reality of both. You will never forget these songs.

Mavericks, Before it was the Cool Thing to Be.... Jan. 12 2009
By armenianthunder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As much as I love the DB's, this album (originally recorded nearly a decade after the two songwriters last worked together in that band) is a different beast. Gone are the herky-jerky new-waveisms of their early albums, and in are more organic sounding songs from two mature, talented songwriters both of whose names should be on all music fans' lips. From the rootsy, charming "Angels," to the chiming Beatle-esque "Geometry," to the stripped-down, wistful "She Was the One," these are some of the best songs either has ever written, and the relaxed vibe of the recording sessions is apparent in the effortless, simplicity and directness of these songs and arrangements. Recommended for fans of earthy, warm pop-rock like, say, Tom Petty's "Wildflowers," Michael Penn's best work, or the songs of Alejandro Escovedo. But basically, anyone who loves a great pop song will love this album, because it's chock full of 'em.

Ever since I found a copy of this album in the mid-nineties in the clearance bin of my local reputable record store (a crime!) I have been anxiously awaiting another installment from the Holsapple-Stamey hitmaking duo. I guess the next best thing is this re-issue with some bonus tracks, including demos, b-sides and remixes, and I'll happily take it.
