Customer Review

on 10 June 2002
By jingo, they rock, but do they take themselves too seriously? Do they hell! Admittedly, with their new album Hi-Fi Serious (as the title would indicate) the antics have been put on the back-burner while the band concentrate on the tunes. And there are no shortage of humdingers on their new opus. From current single "Starbucks" slamming of our working lifestyle to "Something's Going On"'s celebration of being in love to Mark Chapman's Van Halen-honouring guitar work on the gob-smacking "The Distance", those in search of infectious singalongs will not be disappointed.
One of A's most appealing aspects is the fact that on record (as well as Jason's sleeve notes) they come across as five "normal" blokes doing a job they love. This comes as a welcome relief from untouchable pop stars and whiny metallers who wouldn't know a good tune if it nicked their amps. How could you not love a band that sound like a holy mix of The Beach Boys, The Police (Jason sometimes sounds so much like Sting, it's scary) and The Ramones. A positively glow with Good Vibe(rations) and this cannot fail to rub off on the listener. A's current success is real vindication for those (like myself) who have been following the band since their first appearence in 1997, it really feels like the rest of the world are finally grasping what we have known for ages; A rule!!!
