Buffalo Tom

When they released their first album in 1989, the Boston-based trio Buffalo Tom were written off as Dinosaur Jr. junior. Admittedly, their debut was in debt to J Mascis' thundering guitar and folk-tinged songs and it didn't help that Mascis produced the record, either. Over time, Buffalo Tom stripped away their grungier influences and developed into a straight-ahead rock group of the early '90s, capable of throttling rockers and beautiful ballads. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Bill Janovitz, bassist/vocalist Chris Colbourn, and drummer Tom Maginnis, Buffalo Tom began to develop their own style with their second album, 1990's Birdbrain, which featured a noticeable improvement in songwriting. In 1992, Buffalo Tom released Let Me Come Over, a gritty set of driving rock and achingly melancholy ballads; several of its tracks became alternative radio staples, including the gorgeous ballad "Taillights Fade." Despite an increased amount of critical praise and some radio airplay, the album didn't sell. The follow-up, 1993's Big Red Letter Day, featured a more polished, radio-ready production, but the album received only a small push from radio and MTV. "Soda Jerk," the first single from the album, became a minor alternative radio and MTV hit. After a yearlong tour, the group returned in the summer of 1995 with Sleepy Eyed, a return to the more direct sound of Let Me Come Over. Smitten followed in 1998, and two years later a best-of, Asides from Buffalo Tom, arrived. Almost a decade of inactivity followed, but things weren't over for Buffalo Tom; they returned in 2007 with an appearance at SXSW and a new full-length album on the New West label, Three Easy Pieces. Skins, the band’s eighth studio album, arrived in early 2011 through their own Scrawny Records label. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Very much under-apprec i a t e d band--the lead singer Bill Janovitz recently wrote a killer book about the Rolling Stones

I wish critics would stop comparing BT to DJr. I've tried to listen to DJr and it gets old quick. BT is timeless. Yay! :)
I love Buffalo Tom ever since Birdbrain.

I love buffalo tom. I'm from Boston and grew up in the 90's, I was too young to appricioate then but my very cool aunt exposed me to a great music scene
Boring. Why do all singers from the 90's sound the same and the guitarists and drummers only know about 3 notes & chords ?
Thumbs down

Love Buffalo Tom - great live show!

learned about them from my so called life. so fantastic!
Never loved 'em all that much ... But they're very good to see live. There's something just a bit too sappy in their delivery that I don't find in other contemporari e s like Dino Jr, The Great DU, etc. etc. But, hay, that's just me. Any band that works its a** off and gains success has my sincerest respect. Period.
Big Red Letter is probably my favorite...

I didn't become aware of them until I'm Allowed was being played on the radio off of Big Red Letter Day... kind of late in the game, but that album has stuck with me since day one. There isn't a weak song on it.

"soundtrack to my life" really? ... watchin too many movies dude
I think it was Sodajerk.

What tune off of Big Red Letter Day was in a Nike commercial? BT was one of my favorite bands from the early 90's.
I have the first album and Let Me Come Over, and I honestly prefer the first one. What's wrong with being "Dinosaur Jr., Junior?"
New to this artist..enjo y a b l e

If there's any band that's written songs I can consider to be the soundtrack to my life, it's Buffalo Tom. My top band of all time.
Bought their Birdbrain cd for a penny. it was worth it, expected to hear more Husker Du in there though...

birdbrain is a good album. skeleton key is an awesome song.
