Consumer Guide Reviews:

It's Heavy in Here [Sub Pop, 1995]
Beatles, Bee Gees, who's he trying to kid? The template for these sensitive scores, useless songs, and breathy vocals was forged by failed Zombie and insurance man Colin Blunstone, whose solo LPs are now going for as much as five bucks at garage sales up and down the Portland-Seattle corridor. I know Matthews isn't old enough to know better. I just hope the world is. C+
