Semisonic ALL ABOUT CHEMISTRY MCA Universal Records ________________________________________
MINNEAPOLIS-based pulpy pop rock trio's follow-up to 1998's BRIT award nominated and platinum awarded second album Feeling Strangely Fine, All About Chemistry is a concept album about the science of longing for a good relationship, the chemistry of attraction and the physics of finding one true love, simply, something like seeking perfect formula to catch "Ms. Right". The three multi-instrumentalists, Grammy-nominated guitarist/songwriter Dan Wilson and bandmates, bassist John Munson and drummer Jacob Slichter returns in the circuit to catapult more runaway hit songs like Closing Time and Secret Smile from their previous album release. Scientifically, in their new experiment, Semisonic formulated right elements of brilliant melodies and gummy-sometime-poetic lyrical approach. All of the dozen new songs featured in All About Chemistry, (from bouncy and stomping first track Chemistry up to the distressing and pleading El Matador), are more of love themes to Semisonic's love journeys of finding fine mates and the consequence of meeting them in a regretful ways. Furthermore, in Semisonic's All About Chemistry, you'll never feel sorry about everything the band experimented. Be ready to embrace all of their chemically discovered formulas of perfect non-biodegradable melodic songs good for the soul. Among them are the gentle-hearted acoustic Act Naturally, about keeping a relationship amidst difficulties, the piano- accentuated and string orchestrated She's Got My Number and Semisonic's collaboration with legendary singer-songwriter Carole King on soon-to-be pop classic One True Love.
