4.0 out of 5 stars How can this be the 1st review???, 6 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Time Capsules II (Audio CD)
The first review of something that has been out at leats two months. Has no one else bought this? Does no-one else like it? I can believe the former, but not the latter. This is an excellent album from start to finish. If you loved 'Loss' the first Mull Historical Society album (Loss another record that should have been far bigger than it was) then you will love this. Brad Oberhofer is very similar to Colin Macintyre both vocally and musically. He has fashioned an album of pop classics with an exuberant uptempo, but off-kilter pop feel, with instruments and arrangments thrown in at random to create something that shouldn't work, but does. As with Mull Historical Society, there are shades of the Beach Boys, particularly on Cruisin' FDR, and other sixties surf sounds on the likes of Landline, Away frm U, and Homebro, which is reminiscent of Brian Wilson's more reflective early moments. There's not quite the same variety as there was on Loss, which is why this is a four star rather than a five star review, but there's still the same spirit and same quality and imagination in the song writing, which makes it an essential recommendation.

Oberhofer apppears happy in his own geekiness, another similarity to Colin Macintyre, and in making music because he likes it, and not consciously aiming it an any particular audience. That may be why it is undiscovered and why this is the first review of it. All I can say is if you stumble on this review do yourself a favour and buy the CD and while you are on also invest in Loss by Mull Historical Society. You'll think it's the same band and you'll love both.
