  • Shivaree's debut album, I Oughtta Give You a Shot in the Head..., is firmly in the mainstream of alternative rock in the late '90s, fitting in nicely with adult alternative radio formats as well as straight-up alternative. The best of the songs are memorable, well-constructed, and performed with commitment; not everything here is a keeper, but overall, the album seems to signify that the band will develop and progress with its next release. ~ Steve Huey
Professional Reviews
Q (8/00, p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Heralds the arrival of American alt.folk's most unusual new star....[their] sound falls somewhere between Mazzy Star and Julee Cruise..."

Uncut (8/00, p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Sassy yet sentimental, provocative and perverse yet magically moving. Their sweetest songs are subverted by audacious post-rock tricks and samples, and, oh yes, the voice will make you go all shivery..."

Melody Maker (7/11/00, p.50) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Shivaree are great..."

No Depression (5-6/00, pp.119-20) - "...'Potential' hangs over this disc like a silver vapor cloud....[He] is shooting for real estate near Joe Henry's current address....He could turn Sanford's junkyard of musical ideas into a gilded palace of din."
