Cowboy Mouth: John Thomas Griffith, Fred LeBlanc, Paul Sanchez.Recording information: Ground Floor Productions; Weenie Dawg Recording.Photographers: Mark Mercado; Lisa Johnson .The indie and mainstream scenes won't have anything to do with them anymore, but the scrappy Cowboy Mouth seems more at ease than ever with their place in world. The satisfying Uh-Oh is the band's ninth release and first since the one-two punch of being dropped by a major label and the departure of bassist Rob Savoy. The trippy and electronica-colored cover of "Tomorrow Never Knows" that opens the album is promising enough, but the Mouth really turns it on for the self-penned tunes that follow. With other members contributing a couple less songs than usual, the bulk of the album contains drummer and lead singer Fred LeBlanc's whimsical, energetic, and hook-filled songs. It gives the album more focus than the band's prior releases and LeBlanc's writing and enthusiastic delivery keeps getting better. The hyper and humorous "Friends," the perfect pop "So Much the Better," and the hooky title track are all top notch and will no doubt become staples of the band's stellar live shows. The more straightforward and introspective songs written by guitarists Paul Sanchez and John Thomas Griffith help round out the album. Cocksure, catchy, and fun, Uh-Oh gives the legion of Cowboy Mouth faithful a great reason to jump in the ticket line again. ~ David Jeffries

Another winner from a great band
This release is like most other Cowboy Mouth albums I've listened to or own - a few tracks immediately jump out and demand repeat play (in this case "Tell the Girl" and "Uh-Oh" are my current faves) but, the more you listen to the album as a whole, the more you like it. I've said it before - not a bad song on this one. These guys are great story-tellers and wonderful musicians. I'd rather listen to a bad Cowboy Mouth song (not that there is such a thing) than a "good" hip-hop song any day of the week. This is a great addition to any CD collection.

awesome addition to the cowboy mouth collection!
must have for all fans! Definitely enjoyed listening to this CD on heavy rotation. Clever musical sampling of new age girl on "Tell the Girl"
