This long announced and awaited album has so far only been released on CD in America and Belgium/Holland. It received very little media attention and therefor is only known among the band's close fanbase. This is a real shame because it's a brilliant piece of music that can easily stand the comparison with the band's high days of 'Hot Boxing' and 'Rubbing Doesn't Help' when (at least here in Belgium) they continuously filled the radio airwaves. Magnapop plays high energy poprock music in a classic guitar/bass/drum line-up. They distinguish themselves with brilliant tunes and and a strongly infectious enthousiasm.
'Chase Park' is so much better than all of the so-supposed rock music that is played on the radio these days. No hype, no modernism, but solid songwriting craftmanship. Magnapop deserves a place next to Foo Fighters. Ruthie Morris is my guitar hero.
The CD album includes one extra track called 'Jesus' compared to the track listing above. Do yourself a favour and buy this album. As long as Amazon does not offer the CD version, an alternative can be to buy it from the bands website. You really should be playing this in your car, on your iPod, in your home, at your party, and everywhere else.
Play it loud, and say proud 'I'm a Magnapop fan too'.
