Alternatif et Indé - Paru le 17 septembre 1996 | Volcano

Distinctions Discothèque Idéale Qobuz
Sorti peu de temps après le succès du titre « Rock 'N' Roll Lifestyle », du précédent album de CAKE, qui aurait pu prévoir que ce Fashion Nugget,Le mérite en revient à la complémentarité des musiciens, à la patte de son leader, John McCrea, seul compositeur de plus de la moitié des titres, mais aussi à deux singles imparables, qui ont popularisé le groupe, « The Distance »  et « I Will Survive ».Le premier mélange avec originalité du chant hip-hop, des riffs de guitares rappelant furieusement ceux de Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine), des basses puissantes et la « touche » cuivrée du trompettiste Vincent DiFiore. Le second est une reprise aussi réussie du titre de Gloria Gaynor. Car il se trouve que cette histoire de rédemption vengeresse va comme un gant à l’impertinence sarcastique du leader de CAKE. Tout au long de l’album ce chant détaché quasi monotone, garde en effet quelque chose de sauvage, et donc, accrocheur.Mais si cet album de 1996 a bénéficié d’une belle durée de vie, c’est parce qu’il regorge de pépites. Du rassembleur « Italian Leather Sofa », à l’attachant « Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps » reprise du classique populaire cubain « Quizás, Quizás, Quizás », au plus mélodique et mélancolique « Friend Is A Four Letter Word », il faut se rendre à l’évidence : cet part de cake est indispensable à ceux qui souhaitent retrouver la saveur du rock indie des années 1990. © ©Copyright Music Story Anne Yven 2021

Alternatif et Indé - Paru le 24 juillet 2001 | Columbia

While so many rock bands try to reinvent themselves with every new album, Cake has made a name for itself by sticking to its brand of smirking funk-pop. Blending jazz, rockabilly, experimental rock, and a little less country than usual, Comfort Eagle, the band's first album since leaving Capricorn Records for Columbia, carries on the Cake tradition of offbeat humor and catchy melodies. While some fans may be waiting for its sound to evolve, singer/songwriter John McCrea and company seem content to reign over their quirky little corner of the popular music landscape. "Opera Singer" and the first single, "Short Skirt/Long Jacket," follow in the footsteps of Cake's previous hits, but are no less enjoyable because of it. "Shadow Stabbing" is one of the most straightforward rock songs the band has ever recorded, with McCrea forgoing his usual half-spoken vocals for an almost irony-free delivery. While it is still unmistakably Cake, it would sound right at home on a Cars album. The rest of the album is by the numbers Cake, which is comforting and slightly disappointing at the same time. The group has certainly perfected its sound, and one can understand why it would be hesitant to turn its back on its extremely distinctive style, but with Comfort Eagle Cake comes dangerously close to simply remaking its previous release, Prolonging the Magic. While new fans might enjoy Comfort Eagle on its own merits, Cake followers may feel as though they've bought the same album twice. However, both albums are strong enough that they probably won't mind. © Mark Vanderhoff /TiVo

Alternatif et Indé - Paru le 6 octobre 1998 | Volcano

Cake's attempt to make a smug- and irony-free album, the band's third release does hold back the barbs a bit more than usual, even if they do fall back into familiar territory: postmodern takes on postmodern life. Flipping between earnest alt-rock rhythms and jittery, funky jazz, Prolonging the Magic works best when Cake lay on the irony extra heavy, or when they make their sober ambitions mesh slightly with the type of smart-ass pop they've based a career on (like "Never There"). At least they seem to realize their place in the alt-rock universe as a novelty band with chops, counteracting the genre's overwhelming seriousness with a light dose of heavy-handed yuks. © Michael Gallucci /TiVo

Alternatif et Indé - Paru le 5 octobre 2004 | Columbia

Released in 2004, Pressure Chief marks Cake's tenth year with a set of sardonic, engaging alternative pop that shows the Sacramento band's economical sound unwilted after all these years. Chief features artwork and typography typical to the group, as well the familiar three-color print scheme and stiff cardstock paper. John McCrea's wit is as dry as ever, and his tongue has grown sharper with the addition of a social comment streak that occasionally goes quite cynical. Single "No Phone" decries the encroachment of technology, while "Carbon Monoxide" is an upbeat, Beatlesque number that nevertheless wonders cynically, "Where's the air?" Later, the wispily funky "Tougher Than It Is" encourages listeners to take it easy, because life's going to keep throwing curve balls anyway. Cake have always positioned themselves as cultural observers, but McCrea's opinions on Chief rely more on clarity than wryness. This doesn't make the album a downer. It opens with "Wheels," a song built from the best parts of Cake's thrifty yet effective arsenal. McCrea's narrative mostly concerns a breakup, and life moving on ("Wheels keep on spinning 'round..."). But his imagery is on overdrive once he hits the singles bar, where the "Muscular cyborg German dudes dance with sexy French Canadians." The song's punctuated by a classic Vince Di Fiore descending trumpet line and some fan-favorite "HEY!"s from McCrea. In the tradition of "I Will Survive," the band tackles another cover song, this time reinterpreting Bread's "Guitar Man." With its vintage synthesizers squiggling off the cues of an acoustic guitar, their version meanders at a comforting pace akin to Flaming Lips' "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1," and even gives McCrea a chance to sing a little. Other highlights include "She'll Hang the Baskets," where guest Chuck Prophet fills out the mournful melody with some fuzzily toned electric guitar, and "Dime," where the charmingly home-recorded quality of Pressure Chief really stands out. Smart, subtly subversive, and always catchy -- if it ain't broke, don't fix it. © Johnny Loftus /TiVo
