This record is proof positive that you don't have to love every single track to love the album. I'll be honest, there's one or two songs I could do without. But Francis Coppola once said, "It's the moments you catch that count. Not the ones you don't." And this album is chock full of caught moments! Tagliere's briliant songwriting is displayed yet again. Few songwriters can have me jubilantly singing along to a chorus, of what is basically a brutal (yet honest) personal account, as if I was singing along to CAN'T BUY ME LOVE! Yet on SLEEP ALRIGHT, that's exacly what I'm doing. OVER THE HANDLE BARS, WHO CARES, WHERE DO I STAND are all examples of the kind of songs I come to expect from Tagliere. Nothing less than breath taking. It would seem that the truth is universal; because when Tagliere sings lines like "I can't go another week, without knowing what to think/ Where do I stand" I feel he's been listening in on my thoughts, conversations and fears. He writes from a deeply personal and private place and yet it seems like the most accessible words and music I've ever heard. Let's not overlook Seth's contributions here. Aside from his obvious technical and musical talents we are also graced here with a song like FACE UP AGAIN. I'm hesitant to tell you what I think 'cus I'll get blasted for having two Beatles references in the same review. Let's just say the track "REVOLVES" around you with it's perfect blending of banjo, tamborines, blistering guitar, and great vocals. Okay, that whole "REVOLVES" reference was cheesey. But I'm sorry, the song is BEATLE-esque! I can't avoid it, and why should I? This record is glorious ROCK/POP and wouldn't be out of place in a record collection next to THE BEATLES, ELVIS COSTELLO, THE JAYHAWKS and many more. If you can appreciate the differences from EXTENDED PLAY to NOTHING STOPS MOVING and still love them both - You will love this record too. Listen to the track MAKE IT STICK 3 times, and then tell me you can get rid of this record. Go on, I dare ya. You can't.
