Still Crazy

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Curtis Zimmermann
The film Still Crazy is the story of the fictional '70s British rock band Strange Fruit. After showing their breakup in the late '70s, the movie follows the groups attempt to reunite in the late '90s. An obvious spoof of many bands from that era currently on the oldies circuit, it gave some good insight into how difficult it is for these bands to recapture their former glory. While the film was only a modest success, this 14-track album manages to recreate the style and at the same time pay tribute to stadium rock bands like Styx, Blue Oyster Cult, Grand Funk Railroad, and even Lynyrd Skynyrd.

All Music Guide - Curtis Zimmermann
The film Still Crazy is the story of the fictional '70s British rock band Strange Fruit. After showing their breakup in the late '70s, the movie follows the groups attempt to reunite in the late '90s. An obvious spoof of many bands from that era currently on the oldies circuit, it gave some good insight into how difficult it is for these bands to recapture their former glory. While the film was only a modest success, this 14-track album manages to recreate the style and at the same time pay tribute to stadium rock bands like Styx, Blue Oyster Cult, Grand Funk Railroad, and even Lynyrd Skynyrd. The opening song "Flame Still Burns" was delivered at a pivotal moment in the film when the group stood stone faced in front of a festival crowd of 50 thousand. It is a sprawling eight-minute "Free Bird"-esque rock anthem with a dazzling final guitar solo. The track, which is the films strongest, captures the essence of this genre and the rest of the album struggles to keep up. There are a few decent tracks including the gritty "Dirty Town" and the operatic "Scream Freedom," both of which hold up rather well when disassociated from the film. Even with a few weak songs this album serves as a decent tribute to the misunderstood beauty of '70s stadium rock.
