It's sad to think that this artist stands absolutely NO chance of ever making it in the UK, given that we already have a manufactured boy "band" by the name of Blue - the spelling difference won't help when it comes to recognition by the British public I fear. Anyway... picked this up in a second-hand CD store when I was living in the US - it was in an old CD case with no inlay card or anything else to tell me about the CD, but I vaguely remembered reading something about it on a Jellyfish mailing list. Sure enough it was the same album, mentioned because Andy Steurmer (Jellyfish drummer/singer/songwriter) makes a rare co-writing outing on a couple of tracks here, along with Dan Wilson from Semisonic. Even without the colaborations however this would still be great record - infused with (power) pop sensibility but with a modern edge, it's one of the best new albums I've heard this year. From the ELO-gone-metal hybrid of "Get Up" to the electronica of "Three's a Charm" this is a treat from start to finish. Check this out if you enjoy a bit of power-pop - Jellyfish, Beatles, Teenage Fanclub, Foo Fighters etc. It's a steal at this price considering it's an inport, so get clicking now!
