Album "Hash Brown Smilings" 2005


   "Good Times" Magazin 15.03.2005:

Artikel Good Times 2005 "…artists in the field of inexhaustibly imaginative Beatles-like creativity. Refine the style of the Fab Four without plagiarism, and without vague references to the Finn Brothers, and one can only indulge!"

Good Times" Magazin, March 2005:


   THE PLEASURE "Badische Zeitung" 31.12.2004:

Artikel Badische Zeitung Artikel Freiburger Stadtkurier "The Beatles did it in the mid-sixties. Now, The Pleasure is following in the footsteps of their famous idols with their own intensive studio phase. No more live concerts means more time and energy for recording. The comparison is unavoidable in terms of composition too: The more you listen to the new CD from The Pleasure, the more it seems like someone has taken the Beatles - during time of the "Revolver" albums - and transported them to the here and now in Freiburg. Hash Brown Smilings is a mature album. In comparison to its predecessor, Didn't Catch the Sun for Shadows, Jens Kreuzer, Ralf Paske and Volker Eck have continued to evolve - especially in terms of production. Drums and bass are restrained to leave space for featuring other
instruments - here a gritty keyboard motif, there a tinkling e-guitar - everything in its right place. It's hard to believe that catchy melodies like "Scratch My Back" or "Summer Love Trip" didn't come from a British band. Throw in The Pleasure's obligatory short instrumental track, "Add Two Inches", and you've got a great album."
