Love the album - see 'em live!

billybitz6

The beauty of this album (as stated by other reviewers) is it's lack of over produced shnazz that can spoil a perfectly good song. I think moe. has gotten better with age and I really love the fact that they are still out there rockin'! If you like this, definitely check out the Ominous Seapods and lesser known Mass. jam band yeP! I miss the mid 90's music festivals where you could see all these great bands in one place.

Pioneering

djmjs

By the time the 1st generation "jam bands" (BT, Phish, WSP) had captured a national audience, several new bands began to pop up out of the Northeast college scene. For many, moe. led that charge (and though they did not last as long, Ominous Seapods were a close second). Upon first listen, Headseed blew me away. Jim's fearless syncopation (he was behind the kit then) amazed the drummer in me and, no doubt, paved the way for the progressive melodic interplay between Rob, Chuck and Al. Though the band has certainly grown since its release, Headseed will always represent the real moe. for me.

Love It

I just stumbled on these guys through eMusic and have really enjoyed them. It's very hard not to describe their sound as "Phish meets the Spin Doctors" but that doesn't give them enough credit. Just enjoy it. Favorites here are track 1 "Akimbo" and 8 "Brent Black".

great jam rock

EMUSIC-00907EFE

I never would've guessed they did this one on their own. It sounds great. Mexico is a great song that makes you want to take a road trip. Moe. reminds me of Moses Guest and Strangefolk although Moe. certainly has its own own sound.

Definitely one of moe.'s finest albums though it was a small production. This band isn't about overproducing but just plugging in and jamming away. Good for those who have just seen moe. live to see where these songs came from. More people should listen to moe.

They Say All Music Guide

In a way, HeadSeed is the purest of moe.’s studio albums. Like Phish’s Junta, the disc captures the band in first flowering. The basic concept of the band is stripped bare and sounds fresh: a lively mix of post-punk, ska, and hippie influences, without any particular grand aspirations other than to capture what they sound like. Just because the disc is a low budget effort doesn’t mean it is without solid production values. Al Schnier and Chuck Garvey’s guitars are mixed crisply, the vocals are in just the right balance, and the band resists the urge to mic the drums in any fancy manner. Most bands should be so lucky as to self-produce a disc that sounds this great. Above all, there is an amiable innocence to the music — the classical-sounding acoustic guitar and ragamuffin harmonies on “Mexico,” the swirling funk psychedelia of “Brent Black” and “Timmy Tucker,” and the college pop of “St. Augustine” are all nothing less than charming as hell. – Jesse Jarnow
