“Segel’s one of those quadruple-plus threats for whom ambitious bands tend to compete. Comparing All Attractions with David Lowery’s last, typically high-spirited solo effort makes it clear that CVB got some of its more outlandish genes from Segel. There’s nothing even close to “Skinheads Bowling” on All Attractions or Apricot Jam, which feature more intricately musical, wide-ranging, and less Pop-orientated fodder. The lead AA track, “(Ever and) Always” may have a CVB-sorta title. But it’s a classic, acid-rocking jam for five of its eight-plus minutes; after which something more like a song springs from its roots. “Hey You”, the folksy ballad that follows, is seeded with the sweet notes of mandolins, acoustic guitar, and vocals with that droopsy CVB lilt. The third tune could nestle nicely next to one from Poco or Wilco. That’s more or less how All Attractions goes, although Segel’s fondness for foot-stomping, distorted guitar jams is the spice making this party”
