Marshall Crenshaw - Miracle of Science - 1996


Crenshaw's first studio effort for the indie Razor & Tie imprint also marks a return to his earlier, stripped-down approach of his debut album. Playing most of the instruments himself (including drums), there's a far more organic feel to the tunes presented here than his last major-label efforts. In addition to solid Crenshaw pop originals like "What Do You Dream Of?," "Laughter," and "Starless Summer Sky," his takes on Dobie Gray's "The 'In' Crowd" and the countryish "Who Stole That Train" also show him as always to be a prime interpreter of other folks' great songs as well. -AMG

Curty...Thanks for this one. It's one of the few Crenshaw albums that I don't have. Keep up the great work!

Not one of my favorites by him. Would you happen to have Field Day and Mary Jean & 9 Others, My vinyls have had it. Thanks

The promo EP for Field Day had a awesome version of "When Ever You Walk in the Room". Is it available anywhere???

I agree with Deano6. In particular, his version of The In Crowd is uninspired. Thanks for posting nonetheless.
