Overall Rating: 7.5

ProgRock Records released a remastered version of the Frogg Café's debut album. This album was originally released in 2001. Frogg Café's style is a blend of jazz, fusion and modern chamber music (I also heard some traces of folk music). For more descriptive glance on their music and history, you should check out my review of their second album. Originally Frogg Café started out (already in 1998) as a Frank Zappa cover band called Lumpy Gravy.

Songs on this album are somewhat varying... They contain some good, catchy parts, but unfortunately they also have some trifling parts. Some of the songs are more or less experimental, which gives this album better re-listening value. Compared to their second album, on this album songs didn't have progressive rock elements.

This remaster improved the sound quality greatly from the original, but there are still traces of the old sound left (as they didn't re-record this album). Nevertheless, the production is quite good. All in all, this is quite a good album — there are parts of which I quite like. For fans of Frogg Café, this is a "must have" as it contains a bonus track: The live track "Candy Korn", which can't be found anywhere else, contains over eight minutes of vintage live Frogg Café. Listen to the samples at ProgRock Records' website.
