Overview

San Francisco's 4 Non Blondes burst onto the national scene with their massive, neo-hippie anthem "What's Up" from their debut Bigger, Better, Faster, More? Although they failed to recreate the single's success, the album, as a whole, is a fairly engaging mix of alternative rock, quasi-funk, and blues. The focal point is on lead singer Linda Perry who also plays guitar and was the primary writer of the material. Perry has a powerful set of pipes akin to Johnette Napolitano, but, unfortunately, she tends to cut loose when a little more restraint would benefit the proceedings. However, "Superfly" is a feel good, funky number and "Spaceman"'s yearning lyrics are delivered over a quiet, martial drum rhythm. A solid debut that got lost in the wake of its mammoth hit.

Worth every penny for their 1 hit wonder (track 3) "What's up?" The entire album is difficult to categorize. For example, Track 4 seems kinda rockabilly and is enjoyable. The 1st two tracks were a bit odd. Still, this is 4 non blondes only album and worth it.

this cd is awesome, but the customer service i received from barnes and noble was terrible! i ordered this with the fastest shipping possible, which cost more than the cd itself, this was on the 19th. they SAID they shipped it out the 21st, which is lame because i ordered on the 19th with that super fast shipping, but all they did was print out a shipping label. the item wasnt actually shipped out til the 23rd. every email from them was like an automated response, but had someones names signed to it. it was soooo terrible that i am never shopping online or in the store again, and am telling everyone else too.
