All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Shivaree's debut album, I Oughtta Give You a Shot in the Head..., is firmly in the mainstream of alternative rock in the late '90s, fitting in nicely with adult alternative radio formats as well as straight-up alternative. The best of the songs are memorable, well-constructed, and performed with commitment; not everything here is a keeper, but overall, the album seems to signify that the band will develop and progress with its next release.

    New Talents on the Scene

    I found out about this band when they opened for the Wild Colonials a few months ago. I bought the CD that night and it stayed in my CD player for months. I'm so drawn in by Ambrosia's vocals and the CDs clever lyrics. There is something celestial yet haunted about this music where each song takes on it's own mysterious, soulful, sweet, moody theme. This is easy to understand alternative rock from a soulful and somewhat bad-a** breaking-in to the scene Hollywood diva. As a live performance the band is no longer just Ambrosia. Her sweet melodic voice and simple beauty are contrasted with sharp, loud, disjointed, fantastical ingredients from the group. The juxtaposition of the sweet and the harsh create surprises and curiosity. There's a mambo on the record, my favorite track, called 'Goodnight Moon' that they played on KCRW (NPR) the other day. I am so glad to hear this talented band getting air play on one of the most eclectic and respected radio stations in the nation. Good luck to the group.
