MORE HOOKS, MORE ROCK, MORE SUGAR, AND NONE OF THAT STALE AFTERTASTE! PRESENTING THE 2ND ALBUM FROM THE OOHS! 'Some debuts show you all that a band can do and it all goes downhill from there. However, some are more like coming attractions, followed by a second record that builds and improves on everything that came before. The second Oohs record is certainly in the latter category, showing the already confident band firmly forging it's identity. This is hyperslick pop with enough balls to keep it from being twee or too sugary. The record immediately benefits from a mix that gives it a bit harder sound than the first album. This is augmented by a broad palette of songs that reflects the multiple threat the band creates on a concert stage. All four Oohs write and all four sing lead and all four sing together and they all do it well. The songs hearken back to a certain stripe of pop-rock from the '70s and '80s. You could uncover an encyclopedia's worth of reference points over the course of just a few songs. The band is constantly nodding to the showier side of pop (Queen and Jellyfish are just starting points), but there's also nuggets of glam, British psuedo-music hall (10CC) and skinny tie rock tucked in. With this album, The Oohs have truly carved a niche for themselves in the power pop world.' MIKE BENNETT, FUFKIN.COM (December 2002) 'One of the greatest benefits of the advancement of home recording technology in the last few years is the emergence of great pop music that would never have seen the light of day without label support. Case in point - The Oohs viz. Brian Cutright, Frank Huston, Mike Laible & Brian Curtis - who with this sophomore effort have once again presented a minor classic with their almost perfect appropriation of the seminal pop-rock influences of The Beatles, ELO, Utopia, The Knack, Raspberries, Jellyfish, etc. If that sounds interesting to you, don't hesitate - pick up one of the highlights of 2002. A-' KEVIN MATHEWS, THE POWER OF POP (January 2003) 'The members of The Oohs have been together for a couple of years, but individually they've been playing music longer than - well, for a long time. Their second CD, Saturday Morning Dream, is a serious work that reflects the group's farcical sense of humor and everyone's outstanding musicianship. Brian Curtis (keyboards), Brian Cutright (bass), Frank Huston (guitar), and Mike Laible (drums) pool their talents to make a tightly arranged recording of modern-day pop miracles. The four-part harmonies ring true, and you've got to chuckle at the twists and turns of the lyrics.' TOM IRWIN, ILLINOIS TIMES (December 2002) 'That Saturday Morning Dream is one of the best albums you'll hear anywhere this year isn't a surprise. The Oohs have been building a reputation in power pop (think Raspberries, Beatles, Badfinger), and they've shown the growth you'd expect with two years between releases. From the start of the disc -- which includes an announcement starting a TV station's broadcast day and Arnold Horshack from Welcome Back, Kotter introducing the band (remember his catch phrase, and think about it for a second) -- to the conclusion, it's evident these guys are having fun. But having fun with music isn't the same as delivering quality music. And The Oohs deliver. The album starts out with a pair of songs that would fit easily onto an early Queen album. The second, the title cut, mixes a batch of influences. Included are Hudson Brothers-style vocals, what's credited as ''Pet Sounds' percussion' (after the Beach Boys album -- if you've heard it, when you hear the percussion work at the end, it'll be impossible to not grin), and what might as well be a guitar solo by Queen's Brian May. The band also refuses to fall back on the easy out of 14 similar songs. There are mixes of tempo, from ballads like 'Paper' to the upbeat, power pop-perfect 'That's No Lie' to album-closer 'Quality Time,' which is like Steely Dan with poppier vocals. The best thing about the band is it's sense of humor. You can find that in some of the shadings of it's songs. If you've heard The Beatles, Queen or Electric Light Orchestra, you're familiar with the music to which they're paying tribute -- and perhaps taking to another level.'
