AllMusic Review by

A gimmick band which transcends its novelty status, Pianosaurus play their light-hearted, pop-oriented material on children's instruments bought at toy stores, among them tiny pianos, cheap-o organs and plastic horns and guitars. Sincere and enthusiastic, Groovy Neighborhood is sparkling, well-played pop with folk undercurrents; the covers of Chuck Berry's "Memphis" and John Lee Hooker's "Dimples" even prove that songs don't need to be composed for toy instruments to sound great when played on 'em.
