Tom Harvey

The Big Idea

Some might remember Tom Harvey from the Windows, whose debut won Best EP in the Chronicle's reader poll of 1985. The Big Idea, his solo debut, finds him in overly sincere singer-songwriter mode, which wears thin quickly. Harvey possesses strong guitar-picking ability and certainly knows how to compose a song, but his lyrics are trite, a bad combination of being overly earnest and lacking self-awareness. *.5
