I Wake Up Screaming

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Just like last time out, the sticker on the outside reads "First new studio album in 10 years!," but this time August Darnell's revival of his Kid Creole persona is a winning return to form with none of the forced fun of 2001's Too Cool to Conga! Here the smart part of the Kid's humor is played up, and the audience is eased into it with the surprisingly small "Stony and Cory," an intimate and welcome example of the group's "Cab Calloway in post-punk N.Y.C." style.
