The Process

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ann Wickstrom
Just a few weeks after Brave Combo's 1999 Polkasonic won the Grammy for Best Polka Album, The Process hit the record stores. Although band founder Carl Finch saw The Process as a side project of sorts, the album is a delightful testament to his songwriting capabilities. Rather than tackle more polkas and other forms of traditional dance music, Brave Combo broke the mold on The Process and presented a pop album. Although "Why Oh Why" is a polka a remixed version of a track from Polkasonic, The Process delivers mainly hook-filled pop songs. Still, the band's trademark hard-driving instrumentation that is so prevalent on their polkas permeates most of the songs here, too. ...

Although band founder Carl Finch saw The Process as a side project of sorts, the album is a delightful testament to his songwriting capabilities. Rather than tackle more polkas and other forms of traditional dance music, Brave Combo broke the mold on The Process and presented a pop album. Although "Why Oh Why" is a polka a remixed version of a track from Polkasonic, The Process delivers mainly hook-filled pop songs. Still, the band's trademark hard-driving instrumentation that is so prevalent on their polkas permeates most of the songs here, too. "Golden Opportunity" utilizes some elements of polka, but owes more to ska. The reflective "For Me" features soothing background vocals from Stephanie Nadonly. "I Think I Lost Something" is an odd but catchy tune that could just as easily have come from They Might Be Giants. "My Tears Are Nothing" is, for the most part, a cha-cha. "Human" is the album's strongest and most accessible track and is probably most representative of the band's effort to get more airplay. "Nothing Earthly" is the type of lilting, somewhat cheesy waltz you'd hear coming from a carousel. And "Double Vision"? Well, it's no surprise they included yet another irreverent cover of a classic rock song from a '70s band. In Brave Combo's hands, the song becomes a haunting mambo. A definite eyebrow raiser, but then again, the only REAL surprise the Combo could have come up with would have been to include no surprise at all.

    Pop music for grownups

    If you've ever seen Brave Combo live, you know they can and do play every dance style on the planet with boundless energy. Here's something different -- music you can listen to, get funky to, sing along to, and just basically use to improve your outlook on life. Oh, and you can dance to it, too. This is a collection of mostly original, clever and addicting songs that will stick with you all day long. If you're not familiar with Brave Combo, get this album first then explore some of their other brilliant work. If you're already a fan, get ready for something really special! This one's a gem.
