Moxy Fruvous has definetly been one of my favorite bands for the past couple of years. The first I had heard of them was in '93, when I purchased an album based on a song I heard on the radio (King of Spain), but after a couple of listens I just tossed it into the pile of cds I never listened to. While going through that pile several years after, I saw it and decided I'd give it a listen to see why the heck I bought it. That first listen proved to be one of the defining moments in my music listening history. The great mix of mellow, soft songs and gimmicky songs makes it perfect.
1. River Valley: One of my favorite tunes on the cd, this is an acoustic, folky tale of lament dealing with the declining government, and the sacrifices we must make now that we're in an industrial age.
2. Stuck in the 90's: A rather comical look at what everyone's obsessed with, and full of hilarious cliches. Somewhat gimmicky, but the song comes back with so many great rhymes that its impossible to get it out of your head.
3. B.J. Don't Cry: A funny tale of a poor fellow with many romantic problems. Poor BJ can't do anything right, and all of his loves don't really love him.
4. Video Bargainville: A song begging people to rent more and more videos. "Rent them now, before program-your-own TV", says the song. Of course, whatever happened to the prospects of program-your-own TV?
5. Fell in Love: Another one of the great softer songs on the disc, a tale of two completely different people falling in love, this has a great melody to it.
6. Lazy Boy: A song about the notorious Lazy Boy quality inspectors, who get paid to sit in chairs all day long. More great rhymes, although this is one of the gimmickiest songs on the disc.

I have loved Fruvous for a long time now, and I love watching the stellar reviews that their albums get. I hope that people will read them and buy the album; more people need to listen to Moxy Fruvous.
But before you think, "Oh, a fun record! Let's buy it!", a word to the wise. While Fruvous has some flippin' hysterical songs, some of them are, in fact, tragic. And Bargainville is absolutely no exception. Fruvous likes to have fun, true, but they rarely miss an opportunity for outspoken politics and biting social commentary. They also write brilliant love songs. These undertones, which you don't hear if you casually listen to Fruvous, make fans think, and bands that make people think usually aren't that popular in mainstream music.
So don't miss what they're -really- saying in songs, especially listen for: *Laika (This song has such stinging desperation in it...it's all in the lyrics. One of the best Fruvous songs, hands down) *Video Bargainville (of course fun, but a great commentary on independent businesses) *The Drinking Song (live, this song is even more incredible, but the slight humour is only trying to soften the blow of a senseless death)
If you're willing to really listen to some good music, with pointed lyrics that never waste words, incredible harmonies, and good old-fashioned fun (how many other accordian solos have you heard lately?), then try Bargainville. Or any other Fruvous album...you can actually be rewarded for thinking about life.

I first heard Moxy on an incredibly beautiful, warm September night in 1991, dawdling along west Queen Street, gazing in the bookstore and cafe windows and wishing I didn't have to leave Toronto. When I saw Moxy performing on the sidewalk, I stopped to listen. I was hooked way BEFORE they did Green Eggs and Ham. I've got most of their CD's and this one is by far, the best! It's a great CD to start your collection and believe me, you won't stop there! Stuck in the '90's is my favorite cut and it's not only the harmonies that delight this middle-aged Beatles fan - I also love the detail-packed lyrics of The Lazy Boy and My Baby . . . Authors. Bargainville is the first CD I've played continuously in a very long time! Moxy is definitely under-appreciated, but I'd hate to see them get watered down by overkill. They're like one of those great, out of the way restaurants that are appreciated by word-of-mouth and flattened by overexposure. I can't wait for the follow up to Thornhill!

Ok. So if you're looking at this, you're probably already a Moxy Fruvous fan. If you are, and you have not bought this album, then what, exactly are you waiting for? An invitation? Fine. I do hereby formally invite you to buy this FANTASTIC THRILLING AND OVERWHELMINGLY GOOD CD. May you enjoy it.
I know that's not much help for those of you who aren't MF fans, but bear with me, it needed saying. IF you are not a Moxy Fruvous fan, then please, for the love of whatever Supreme Being you believe in (or don't, whatever) why have you not bought them yet? Maybe you're not into clever, folky rock? Maybe you're not into catchy tunes like "Bargainville" or "River Valley" which combine beautiful musicianship with an intelligent take on public discourse and environmentalism? Maybe you don't like fun renditions of the "Spiderman Theme" or the nostalgic and soulfull "Gulf War Song"? Fine. If you don't, that's fine. You probably don't like They Might Be Giants, either. Philistine.
