Well,what's the point of reviewing a 9-year-old record by a band that no longer exists?First of all,it is a good album,especially considering it was a debut by a then-at-the-time very young band.Most of the songs are well-written and catchy and the band displays a high level of musicianship.My only gripes are that lead singer Kimi tends to take the same vocal approach to just about every song.She is a good singer,but she needs to change up her style more often ala Paul McCartney.Also,there's a bit too many filler-type songs here.The songwriting,while generally very good,could be more consistent.Ok,we've established that this is a good record.Now why did Elektra dump M&C?Probably the usual reasons:1.not enough record sales 2.personnel changes within the record company 3.management shakeups in the record company 4. the record company was impatient and didn't let the band develop a following 5.all of the above.It's too bad,because these kids had a lot of potential but I guess you can't make money from just potential.If any former members of Moonpools&Caterpillars ever readthis,here's some advice:Strap those guitars back on and give it another shot.You don't need major label validation to be a successful band.Additional:Since I have written this review,I've listened to Moonpools&Caterpillars second never-released album called "12 Songs".It's a better,more consistent record than "Lucky Dumpling".Many of my gripes about "Dumpling" had been addressed.It's too bad they broke up soon after "12 Songs" was recorded.
