An uplifting album containing some classic tracks,
This review is from: Ear Candy (Audio CD)
Ear Candy now dates back some 10 years as the band's 6th studio release from 1996. This album has immediate appeal for both existing fans of the band and others into rock/metal in general.
The album kicks off perfectly with Train with its chugging guitar riff setting the tone for the whole album which has a slightly back to basics feel in places.
Other standout tracks are the lively Sometimes, Box, Mississippi Moon & Lines In The Sand (both led by Ty Tabor), Fathers (a very personal song from Doug P) and the simply excellent Life Going By which is an immense album closer. American Cheese is also worth a mention as a quirky Ty led tune with heavy Beatles influence.
with 13 tracks this is a substantial offering with great diversity.
The production (by the band themselves) is fine and I think the intention was to create a fairly live and, at times, raw feel. The songs by their very nature didn't demand a complex muti-layered approach and this has given the sound immediacy and directness.
As ever, this little known trio from Texas has produced another very strong album. A must for the discerning rock fan.
