Personal Effectsa Collection
We have chosen twenty songs from our six releases for a CD entitled, 'Personal Effects - A Collection'. It was released at the Scorgies Reunion Nov. 21, 2008. This is the first time this material has been available on CD. REVIEWS "This band has a haunting, unique sound based on musical ability, not gimmicks." - BILLBOARD "There are hints of psychedelia-both the sixties American and eighties British brands-in both the Iyrics and the music, but there are enough hooks to satisfy radio programmers." - PMS NEW MUSIC REPORT "The real kick is the way they play choppy riffs and make them sound smooth." - MUSICIAN MAGAZINE "Accessible without selling out...great hooks and interesting guitar work, neo-psychedelic Iyrics...Highly recommended." - BOSTON ROCK " PERSONAL EFFECTS combines classical rock with some crashing sax and synth and a female vocalist." - MILWAUKEE EXPRESS "This group's curious blend of jazz, new wave and pulsating rhythms is ultimately infectious." - ON CAMPUS MAGAZINE "This four piece group combines garage rock and art rock to arrive at some rather tasty results." - BUFFALO EVENING NEWS "PERSONAL EFFECTS mine the quirky rock field exemplified by bands like the B-52's and the Bongos. But they spice it with nods to Blondie and tips of their collective hat to older sources like Jefferson Airplane and Ritchie Valens." - MUSIC AND SOUND OUTPUT MAGAZINE "The twist this quartet adds is a mixture of brooding atmospherics and funky counterpoint. This is a band that plays out their ideas, not just their music." - KNICKERBOCKER NEWS-ALBANY, NY "Danceable, serious-side-of-pop... captures the nouveau pose perfectly." - OP MAGAZINE "lf you want to see music with guts that excites and incites dancing, see PERSONAL EFFECTS live." - BUFFALO NEWS "PERSONAL EFFECTS new album (It's Different Out There') is a masterpiece." - ROCHESTER TIMES-UNION "At a time when we all seem to be looking for good, new American bands, we recommend you check out PERSONAL EFFECTS." - ROCKPOOL.
