One of the more noteworthy "jangly guitar" acts of the 1990s, the Rembrandts
were off to an enjoyable start with this debut album. Melodic and
congenial but far from wimpy, such pop/rock as "If Not for Misery," "New
King" and the small hit "Just The Way It Is, Baby" set the tone for the
L.A. duo's career. A variety of influences from previous decades can be
detected -- everyone from the Beatles to the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash to the Everly Brothers.
And yet, this CD never sounds dated, and has a definite freshness to
it. With so many rap, metal and industrial acts expressing deep
pessimism in 1990, the optimistic, socio-political idealism of "Everyday
People" (not to be confused with the Sly & the Family Stone classic) was a refreshing change.(allmusic.com)
Like all the work of the Rembrandts the debut had a string of great pop songs, too. And 'Just the way...' wasn't a 'small' hit. In most of the european countries it sold very well and reached the 'Top Ten' and gave them a great reputation. In the U.S. billboard Hot 100 charts the single peaked at 14.
I will post more Rembrandts in the next days and hope you like it.
