Stories - About Us About Us
Pop New - LP KSBS 2068 Kama Sutra
Sealed 1973 Original Gatefold With Saw-Cut. Very Minor Seam Rub Where Shrink Has Torn. "Compared To The Band's Intricate, Insular Debut, About Us Is A Completely Different Story Altogether. Eddie Kramer's Cinematic Production Gives The Band Definition And Drama, Pulling Them Into The Leagues Of Such Power Poppers As Badfinger, The Raspberries, And Todd Rundgren. Not That Stories Rocked As Hard As Any Of Those Three-There's Not Much Kinetic Thrust To Their Rhythms Or Reckless Abandon To Their Playing, But There's Muscle And Color To Their Sound On About Us; The Songs Leap Out Of The Speakers And Command Attention. Not That Michael Brown Has Abandoned His Long-Standing Infatuation With Delicate Melodies, Or Even His Fondness For Mccartney-Esque Whimsy, But When Put Through The Filter Of Kramer's Production, Everything Becomes Bigger And Bolder, To The Extent That A Jaunty Piano Instrumental, "Circles," Recalls Nothing So Much As One Of Billy Joel's Ragtime Tunes Of The Early '70s. Such Moves Toward The Mainstream Are Undoubtedly Why Brown Bolted Some Time During The Recording, Leaving The Band As The Sole Province Of Singer Ian Lloyd, But The Music Left Behind Is Almost All Unmistakably Brown's, As Its All Driven By Melody And Even Occasionally Built Upon Baroque Keyboards. The Major Difference And Inarguable Improvement Is The Production, Which Fleshes Out The Songs, Turning This Into A Minor Power Pop Classic. Of Course, The Exception To The Rule Is The Album's Lone Hit, A Lush Cover Of Hot Chocolate's "Brother Louie" Which Suggested Stories Were A Blue-Eyed Soul AM Pop Band, A Suggestion That The Rest Of The Album Proved Unfounded, But Fewer People Heard The Other 12 Songs On This Album, Not Just In 1973, But Throughout The Years, So About Us Turned Into A Lost Pop Classic That Even Pop Aficionados Had To Be Persuaded To Find. But Once They Were Persuaded, They Were Often Seduced By This Sumptuous Yet Powerful Pop Album." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide... more details
