AllMusic Review by

Pyramid Landing and Other Favorites collects Robert Schneider's pre-Apples (in stereo) four-track recordings, cut between 1992 and 1993. Far more spare and delicate than the Apples' fuzzy pop, the Marbles' songs are still cut from essentially the same Beach Boys-inspired cloth; while not as dynamic or accomplished as Schneider's later work, his early compositions are nevertheless melodic, bright, and charming -- even at his most derivative, he's an engaging talent and a smart pop revisionist.
