Very pleasantly suprised,
This review is from: The Alternative To Love (Audio CD)
I had only heard the name Brendan Benson recently, most due to the publicity surrounding him and Jack White(who in the music world is a close 2 God as it comes!)However NME.com was plugging the new album on the website and thought it worth a listen....and its fantastic!
I cannot comment on how this album progress's from his earlier work, but even as a stand alone i think its great. The songs are melodic and the lyrics are witty and clever. The album has a great flow, and retains a certain country feel which in todays modern music world is very refreshing. I cannot wait 2 buy this album on its release and urge everyone else to do so, it really is a pleasant suprise.
