And this said Jeff Rosenberg:
I couldn't disagree more with Mr. Deming's assessment. I actually prefer 11 to the first two Smithereens albums. The sound is fuller, thanks to producer Ed Stasium, and the songwriting is top-notch. To dismiss such tunes as "Maria Elena" - an ode to Buddy Holly's widow - and the beautiful "Cut Flowers" as mere filler suggests a cursory listen to the album, at best. Singling out "William Wilson" as a highlight is similarly bizarre; it doesn't suck, but it's not a standout song, either. Yes, "Baby Be Good" is something of a trifle, but in that, it recalls second-tier Beatles songs like "You Like Me Too Much" - not one for a best-of comp, perhaps, but tuneful and fun.
I second that what Jeff Rosenberg said.
