Product Description

Amazon.ca

If the Grapes of Wrath's debut, September Bowl of Green, sounded like a band searching for its sound, they found it with Treehouse, a 13-song disc full of jangly, pastoral guitar pop, hummable melodies, and terrific harmonies. Co-songwriters and vocalists Tom Hooper and Kevin Kane deliver songs that are airy, light, and imbued with the best elements of '60s British and American pop; you can hear the Byrds in "A Very Special Day" and the Beatles in "At Your Soul." Elsewhere, songs like "So Many Times" and "Seems Like Fate" recall Echo & the Bunnymen and the Smiths. This is thoughtful, folksy pop at its finest. --Adem Tepedelen

Very few albums are close to perfect... but this is one of them. It's astonishing how much this band grew between their debut album and 'Treehouse'. As mentioned before, this is jangle-pop at its finest combined with gorgeous vocal harmonies. The three singles 'O Lucky Man', 'Backward Town' and especially 'Peace of Mind' are fine examples of this... but what pushes this album over the edge is the quality of the rest of the album... 'At Your Soul' is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard anywhere from any band. In my opinion, 'Treehouse' and 'Now & Again' are essential to any music collection. Check them out and get to know one of the most gifted bands ever to come out of Canada.

When I first listened to "Now and Again," I thought it was one of the best albums I've heard in a long time. Each song was worth listening to with a great hook. The band also have a great sound. So, I was excited to get "Treehouse," expecting at least some of the greatness of "now and Again." I was disappointed. Gone are the hooks, the sound, or anything like "Now and Again." There a few good songs but overall it was just disappointing. If you want to get an album by Grapes of Wrath, pick up "Now and Again" not "Treehouse."

It IS their best! April 12 1999
By beetls4evr@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Begging to differ with the Canadian reviewer, this definitely is their best album. Just about every song on 'Treehouse' sticks in your head with melodies most bands would kill for, with very tasty Byrdsian guitar strumming. Their other albums have more keyboards than this one (which, in itself is alright), and this is just classic guitar pop, pure and simple.

Lovely, earthy guitar pop Sept. 25 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Grapes of Wrath are a sadly lamented Canadian group of the late 80's to early 90's. This is their second recording, and although it is not their best (1989's Now and Again and 1991's These Days both surpass it), it shows the band's talent for melodic, quality music. The standout track is "Peace of Mind"; a rousing number that has one singing from start to finish. Anyone who likes Blue Rodeo, R.E.M., the Sundays and Oasis should give this a try.

One of my favourite albums of all time July 17 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
TreeHouse is a solid album from one of the best and most under-rated bands to come out of Canada in a long time. It's a shame that groups like this have to break up. If you are into melodic, acoustically driven sounds, make sure to make this album a part of your collection.

Very Well Done July 4 2005
By J. McAndrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This group has such a unique energy. It's a little like REM, but really it's own sound. All the songs on the CD are very well produced, and I'm surprised this group hasn't had the commercial success it deserves.

Worth Owning July 6 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I think that ANY Grapes of Wrath is worth buying, owning, and enjoying. They're not songs that will fade with time. They're Eternal.
