AllMusic Review by

The debut of a series of compilations of music drawn from assorted independent labels, All-Ears Review, Vol. 1 leans toward quirky folk, rock and blues. Represented are Pianosaurus' toy pop, the Mekons' singular punk, a Russian-language cover of a ZZ Top song by Crazy Backwards Alphabet, and a skewed love song from the Ben Vaughn Combo called "I Feel like Jerry Lewis in France When I'm with You."
