You Were a Diamond [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jim Smith
Clem Snide's debut, a kind of country-punk chamber music, is a brilliant fusion that succeeds on Eef Barzelay's eccentric songwriting and Jason Glasser's tasteful, complimentary string arrangements. Barzelay is an uncommonly clever songwriter; whether it be the cutting cynicism of "Your Night to Shine" or the ghostly ambience of "Fruit Salad Stains," he captures events and feelings with a deadpan sense of humor and an unerring melodic gift. Glasser's cello and violin playing deserve much of the credit for giving the music its shape, and most of the record plays off a combination of Barzelay's guitar balanced by a quavering undertow of strings, saws, and banjos that fluctuates...

Barzelay is an uncommonly clever songwriter; whether it be the cutting cynicism of "Your Night to Shine" or the ghostly ambience of "Fruit Salad Stains," he captures events and feelings with a deadpan sense of humor and an unerring melodic gift. Glasser's cello and violin playing deserve much of the credit for giving the music its shape, and most of the record plays off a combination of Barzelay's guitar balanced by a quavering undertow of strings, saws, and banjos that fluctuates between near-avant-garde noise and orchestral finery. As for the songs, these are some of the group's best: "Nick Drake Tape" employs a loping country bassline pasted over glittery strings, and "Uglier Than You" and "Nothing Is Over, Not Yet" are marvelous, the latter containing some of the most curious and inspired lyrics ever heard in a love song. [Out of print for a time, the original 1998 album was remastered and issued in a deluxe 2002 edition featuring two extra tracks, a newly redesigned package, and a video for "Your Night to Shine."]

    A Diamond in the Rough!

    Nick Drake Tape and Chinese Baby are incredible songs on this CD. Also well noted is their triumphant jambaroo version of Hank William's ''Lost on the River.'' A beautiful, simple start to a band's career!
