Everclear ~ Songs From An American Movie Vo
Reminiscences permeate the dozen diverse tracks that populate Everclear's fourth outing. The trio, spearheaded by writer/guitarist/producer Art Alexakis, looks back in myriad ways on Songs From An American Movie. Alexakis skilfully and sweetly addresses his recent divorce ("The Honeymoon Song", "Now That It's Over"), musical heroes ("Otis Redding") and childhood ("AM Radio"), frequently matching his words with suitably retro music. Although the only cover is a new-wave take on Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl", familiar musical references abound. On "AM Radio," a brief sample of "Mr Big Shot" sets the tone for funky flashback fun, while "The Honeymoon Song" is full of Brian Wilson inflections. Alexakis references his own "Everything to Everyone" in the title track, while "Otis Redding", "Unemployed Boyfriend" and "Wonderful" are more commercial alt-rock Everclear than homage Everclear. Alexakis set out to make a pop album, and while millennial teenagers have their own definition of "pop", for '70s-kid Alexakis, Songs From An American Movie serves as a summertime soundtrack to his 30-something life. --Katherine Turman

Thats right I said it! This is the best album they ever and probably will make, but one of the reasons I love this band is that each cd is different and can stand on its own. Read morePublished on Oct. 6 2003 by Matthew Arrowood
Don't get me wrong, Sparkle & Fade still remains a classic, and everything else is decent, but "Wonderful" is the only song that's very good on here. Read morePublished on May 17 2003 by Zen Station
Its an exemplary piece of music and gives superb examples of a typical American life. No one has a voice as wonderful as this and has the gift 2 portray a life.Published on April 2 2003 by Alexandra W.
I think it would be impossible for Everclear to recreate the magic that made So Much For The Afterglow. But this is a great follow-up to that album! Read morePublished on March 27 2003 by "jbuilt"
