disappointing?!!

zhvugnah

i fully agree with the other member review and fully disagree with the "professional" review. the guitar lines on this record are amazing. this set of songs is, in my opinion, their strongest. this has been my favorite ALL album for many years, and is the only one i continue to listen to with any regularity. "frog" may be silly, but it is also technically competent and gets stuck in my head for weeks. also, the time change between verse and refrain in "educated idiot" is brilliant. highly recommended.

what?

I couldn't disagree with Alex Henderson more - completists only? Where this album is not as straight forward nor as poppy as Allroy's Revenge it is more mature, more intelligent and more complex. OK, not an instant hit, but a real grower - and some of the songs on here eventually became my favourite All songs. Scott's vocals are at their peak and the band never sounded so tight given how complicated some of the tunes are here. Highlights for me are 'Prison', 'Frog', 'Cyclops', 'Sum' and 'Crawdad' but it's all good - start with Frog and Sum.

They Say All Music Guide

From Generation X, the Ramones and the Dickies in the ’70s to Green Day in the ’90s, the combination of punk’s reckless aggression and power pop’s infectious hooks have often made for an exciting combination. Though the punk-pop combination has worked reasonably well for All at times, the L.A. band hasn’t always lived up to its potential. A perfect example is Allroy Saves, which has its moments but could have been much stronger. Some of the songs are fun and catchy enough–most notably, “Just Like Them,” “Educated Idiot” and the goofy “Frog.” But most of the material is disposable, and when you look at the CD on the whole, you realize how unfocused and generally disappointing it is. Allroy Saves is an album that only completists will find of interest. – Alex Henderson
