Lida Husik - Fly Stereophonic
Whichever CD Henning did that had that song "Player Piano." While we were listening to that, my wife just said "This...this is a good song." I agree
S oundtrack - Repo Man
Pretty much anything by R.E.M., but "Murmur" holds a special place, I suppose.
Nanci So. Deerfield, MA I love them ALL! It's a nice set to dance to (good exercise!) - I put it on really loud and just freak the cats out by dancing around the bedroom!! I STILL think that the O'Malley song would make a great performing song. It's catchy and fun and clever and I think audiences would really go for it (like I do!).
Freedy Johnston - This Perfect World
Pnik Floyd - The Wall
Joni Mitchell - Blue
XTC - Skylarking
Tom Petty - Wildflowers
Frisco, TX Enjoyable :) I like how they sound vaguely familiar at some level. Not in a bad way - but in a "comfortable pair of shoes" way. That probably made no sense...
Play some shows outside the East Coast because I don't know when I'll be able to get up your way to catch a show. But, if you came to Texas or Louisiana, that would be a different story...

Boston, MA They're fun, if a little lighter than my usual fare. "Omnivore" is my favorite of the four, although "One Lady Dancing" resonates, as I have been that lady more than once.

Amy M. Ramsden Branchburg, NJ The CD grew on me the more that I listened to it. I don't know if Max told you this but Henning's voice reminded me of the lead singer of The Bogmen. Then I pulled out my copy of "Life Begins at 40 million" and realized that the similarities ended there. The Bogmen album is horrible. Plus I think that the Bogmen lead singer is faking it. Anyone who writes a song about Martha Stewart is okay with me. One Lady Dancing, is creepy to me if only because I suspect I have often been that lady at many a Fountains of Wayne show sans the alcohol. I'm looking forward to hearing your next album. P.S. I like your blog. The town you live in sounds very intriguing. Growing up in land locked Northern Maine, I never imagined that any town in Massachusetts short of Boston had that many bands. I was even more surprised that most of those bands seem to like each other. If you ever play NYC I'll definitely come. Good luck! Not a suggestion. Max sent me this CD a couple of months or so ago along with some CD's from his other endeavors. I e-mailed him my mini reviews of everything, admired the neatly written PLUM and then fulfilled the prophecy of my first grade teacher Mrs. Garcelon, "Amy has trouble following directions." I apologize for slowing down your tracking. You can check off New Jersey now. I don't do favorites and I rarely buy anything due to the sensory overload my job provides i'll just state the obvious; I am a huge Fountains of Wayne fan from way back (I wrote the popgurl interview) with the song "I Know You Well" probably being one of my favorite songs of all even if it's sort of a bootleg and they never play it when I've requested it and thus I have never heard it live.
