  CMT.com : Folk Implosion : Biography
The Folk Implosion subsequently signed with the Communion label and recorded a relatively long EP titled Take a Look Inside the Folk Implosion, also in 1994; they followed it with the more experimental, import-only Electric Idiot EP in 1995.
Somewhat taken aback by the song's success, London Records (who'd released the soundtrack) attempted to sign the Folk Implosion permanently, but they were reluctant to leave the certainty of Communion for uncharted larger-label waters, and hoped to see whether they could continue their success by doing things on a smaller scale.
Barlow had always insisted that the Folk Implosion was an equal partnership with Davis, despite his own well-established reputation in the underground.

 The Folk Implosion - PopMatters Concert Review
Folk Implosion hit their commercial and artistic peak providing the soundtrack to the movie Kids, scoring an unlikely hit with the jumpy, poppy and lopsided "Natural One" and all the fanfare associated with such matters.
Folk Implosion releases with Davis were awesome -- a tightly wound elastic, bouncing and lurching this way and that while remaining tethered to a simple pop structure.
Paint by numbers, the New Folk Implosion is second-rate and that is a damn shame for a musician, performer and songwriter of Barlow's caliber.

 Folk Implosion: Kids Soundtrack ---Ink Blot Magazine
Folk Implosion was conceived when John Davis, an ardent admirer of Sebadoh, sent Barlow a tape of some of his own songs.
After having enjoyed a humble reign in the upper echelons of the lower realms of lo-fi indie rock obscurity, Folk Implosion breached the surface with this album's "Natural One," and found themselves breathing the rarefied air of the Top 40 charts.
But in the recording of this soundtrack, the duo managed to make full use of a professional studio's wealth of effects and and samplers without compromising the raw inventiveness and eclecticism that've always been part of their trademark.

No one was more surprised than the Folk Implosion's Lou Barlow when a slinky tune called "Natural One" bounded into the national Top 40.
Given the Folk Implosion's new high profile, it's a bit unexpected that the duo's latest release Dare To Be Surprised isn't also on London Records (or even another major), rather than on the small indie label Communion.
Barlow always stresses that the Folk Implosion is a 50/50 partnership, and explains that the contrast between Sebadoh's ragged rock and this band's subtle funkiness is merely a question of chemistry.

 The Folk Implosion: The New Folk Implosion - PopMatters Music Review
As such, the most unimaginatively-titled The New Folk Implosion calls to be judged not as appendix in the annals of an unfettered artiste, but as just one of the hundreds of records to hit the shelves on any given Tuesday.
Musically, the soundscape of The New Folk Implosion is a lo-fi grunge; the sound is akin to a power trio who have turned the power down a notch.
If the likely lead-single off The New Folk Implosion is the catchy pop-tune "Leaving It Up to Me", the true highlight is "Pearl", an acoustic-driven number strong enough to be forgiven for its prom-theme bass and drum entry on the big chorus.

 Folk Implosion - The New Folk Implosion CD review on AudioRevolution.com
In the past, Folk Implosion has experimented with various electronic elements and samplings, as it did to great success with the “Kids”; soundtrack.
“Coral,” for example, is acoustic folk, with Barlow singing not unlike David Crosby, and “Creature Of Salt” sails rough musical waves -- over a mix of English folk and progressive rock -- for a kind of newfangled sea chantey.
Whether with Sebadoh, Folk Implosion, or any of his other collaborative configurations, Barlow has usually been associated with the lo-fi musical movement.

 Folk Implosion: One Part Lullaby (1999): Reviews
Having scored a minor hit with a track that appeared on the Kids soundtrack, the group now has a big-label deal and a hip new style--still recognizably moody and tentative, but with enough down-tempo beats and electronic knob-tweaking to drift into trip-hop territory.
While early Folk Implosion albums were almost tuneless, ramshackle affairs, this latest effort builds on the crystalline pop gems found on "Dare to Be Surprised" (1997).

Barlow has openly stated that he would "love to have an easy-listening favorite, a VH-1 hit" but before you let that scare you off, note that Dare to be Surprised doesn't sound like anything on that video channel.
The point, though, seems to be that The Folk Implosion wouldn't sound too out of place in such an environment.
No two songs are alike -- "Wide Web" grooves beautifully with an analog synth bubbling in the background while "That's the Trick" is a testy fuzzed-up rant and "(Blank Paper)" proves you don't have to play jazz to make an interesting guitar duet.
