  • In his trademark raspy voice, Bill Janovitz kicks in Springsteen-strong on the blistering "Tangerine" with memorable refrains like "just a little haiku to show how much I like you." It's proof positive 1997's SLEEPY EYED will carry on the Buffalo Tom tradition of intelligent indie rock. As is their way, the Boston trio mixes swift, tight anthems like the breezy single "Summer" with wistful, introspective ballads such as the mellowest domestic dispute on the plains-drifting "Twenty-Points."
Professional Reviews
Q (8/95, p.118) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...stuffed with their trademark superbly melodic tunes played with a charged intensity which makes the band's typically bathetic lyrical barbs all the more arresting....this is fine music indeed."

Alternative Press (10/95, pp.63-64) - "...the band's songs are consistently excellent, rocking without being atonal, catchy without being cloying..."

Option (1-2/96, p.86) - "...vital, but elusive...the intangible is now crystal clear: Buffalo Tom is a fine band..."

Melody Maker (7/8/95, p.33) - "...even the `cool' American rock bands are free from sub-texts, haven't got anything to say, just want to `rock' (it's a Pop-fear thing). Buffalo Tom aren't even cool, are an everyday rock band....the lowest common denominator of dull-rock..."

NME (Magazine) (7/8/95, p.48) - 8 (out of 10) - "...their least self-conscious work....Buffalo Tom's debt to Dylan, the Stones, The Who and Neil Young, is just as apparent as their obvious infatuation with '80s US punk...Thus for every headstrong adrenalised pop rush...we meet a bruised beauty like `20 Points'...of which Bruce Springsteen would have been perfectly proud..."
