This review is from: The Alternative To Love (Audio CD)
I have read a lot of reviews of this CD and almost all of them seem to say that Benson's earlier album 'Lapalco' is better. I have to disagree.
This album is power pop gold. If you are ever feeling down this CD is the answer. It is full of upbeat songs from start to finish that will make your day better. 'Feel Like Myself' is a brilliant track that delivers one of the best pop hooks of the decade. Following that great track are another two greats; the title track 'Alternative to Love' and 'The Pledge'. The latter is reminiscent of the Phil Specter production that resulted in Brian Wilson's Pet Sounds. 'What I'm looking for' is a simple song that is so good it will make you want to go out and buy all his other albums!
