5.0 out of 5 stars Flying Pickets 'Everyday'
The Pickets are back, with a new lineup and a new energy that positively JUMPS out of every track on this album. There are awesome covers of classics like Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car" or a revamped and very steamy four-plus minute version of the Police's "Roxanne," as well as their own material. Group members Dylan Foster and Michael Henry contribute originals on intense,...

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I love much of what the Pickets have done in the past, but I don't much like this recording. The harmonies have disappeared and been replaced by vocal percussion, making a completely different sound. It may be funkier and more up to date, but it's not as pleasing to the ear.

This review is from: Everyday (Audio CD)
The Pickets are back, with a new lineup and a new energy that positively JUMPS out of every track on this album. There are awesome covers of classics like Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car" or a revamped and very steamy four-plus minute version of the Police's "Roxanne," as well as their own material. Group members Dylan Foster and Michael Henry contribute originals on intense, sexy numbers like Foster's groovy "Do It" and Henry's driving "Chapel on a Cloud." And check out the very original version of Michael McDonald's "I Keep Forgettin'" - the solo on this has so much soul that it almost makes you feel bad for the misguided, heartbroken bloke in the song! The 'Pickets must really like the Doobie Brothers, as they do a rockin' cover of "Long Train Runnin'" later on - this is just one funky album that you MUST have, whether or not you're a previous Flying Pickets fan.
