Prozac Daisies Krazzy music review

Prozac Daisies: Krazzy (EP)

Melodic Rock
Rating: 3.75/5.0

Even though they're promoting themselves by pushing their interpretation of Tommy Tutone's 867-5309/Jenny, I going to give Prozac Daisies' EP Krazzy the benefit of the doubt. I hate that song. On their promo materials they state, 'Everyone on the planet knows and loves that song.' Bullshit! What rock do they live under? I hated it when it came out in 1982. I still hate it today, and hit the mute every time the local plumbing company uses it for a TV commercial. Prozac Daisies must have been on prozac when they decided to cover this horrid song.

Okay. My tirade's over.

Prozac Daisies' Krazzy is an exceptional EP of clever and diverse songs. While you can clearly hear strong tones of classic rock, Prozac Daisies add urgency by invigorating songs like Khalifornia and Krazzy with surreal heaviness and a modern tone. Even Don't Give Up On Me, which could pass as a ballad, moves on a unexpected path building with near somber elusiveness at the beginning to a stirring crescendo finish. It's easily the highlight of this short disc. This song also displays the impressive talent of the players and the excellent production as well. Listen for the cello of Michelle Oberlin throughout Krazzy.

Excluding the cover of 867-5309/Jenny, Prozac Daisies' Krazzy is a hidden gem of exceptional and creative melodic rock in the current American indie music scene, and worthy of your full attention. Recommended.

In Short

Excluding the cover of Jenny 867-5309, Prozac Daisies' Krazzy is a hidden gem of exceptional and creative melodic rock in current American indie music scene, and worthy of your full attention.

With a band name such as Hammerschmitt, I'll give you one guess to their country of origin. Yeah. Germany. Hammerschmitt has been plugging away at their craft, melodic hard rock and heavy metal, for nearly 20 years. Until now, all albums were recorded in German ... [ Read More ]
