CD Reviews
Garage D'Or
Review by Gary Hill
One of the bands that emerged when the great Camper Van Beethoven broke up, Cracker has always been an intriguing band that merges a poppy sort of mentality with a great alternative take on retro sounds. They are perhaps similar to what REM might be if Stipe and company didn't take themselves so seriously.
Concert Reviews
Cracker - Live In Dekalb, IL, June 23rd, 2001
Review by Gary Hill
Cracker is a very difficult band to categorize. The first label that would probably spring into mind is that of a clever and somewhat humorous alternative rock band.

Review by Gary Hill
Ethnic, alternative and art rock styles are combined on this album to create a very intriguing soundscape. The vocal work on the album is in a style which seems like a marriage of David Byrne and Fred Schneider vocal styles
