Stack-a-Tracks

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Originally released on Record Store Day 2012 as an individually numbered, limited-edition digipak, this two-disc jewel box version of Omnivore's Stack-a-Tracks includes instrumental versions of both of the Bay area cult power pop outfit's studio albums, 1990's Bellybutton and 1993's Spilt Milk. Transferred from the original 1/4" masters, both of these versions were created during the original recording sessions, which means that the versions you are hearing are the real deal. There are occasional bursts of backing vocals (the only thing missing in "Hush" is Andy Sturmer's lead vocal), but for the most part, this is a die-hard Jellyfish fan's karaoke/band geek ...

There are occasional bursts of backing vocals (the only thing missing in "Hush" is Andy Sturmer's lead vocal), but for the most part, this is a die-hard Jellyfish fan's karaoke/band geek dream come true. The production differences between the two albums are even more startling when absorbing them sans vocals, with the clean, radio-driven Bellybutton coming off as a bit cautious in the shadow of the much bolder and experimental Spilt Milk, but longtime fans know every handclap, breakdown, cymbal swell, and impeccably constructed solo, and will likely find enough tasty minutia in every nook and cranny of both offerings to warrant the inevitable creation of a collection that shifts its full attention to the band's formidable vocal prowess. This is an easy ten for Jellyheads, but a bit too specific for newbies.
