Album Review

Reviewed 2006-02-17
Competent but uninspiring garage rock from Champlain IL. Similar to The Libertines or Von Bondies in that The Living Blue deliver melodic, riff-heavy, & fiery rock with just enough variety to keep things interesting. Depending on your tastes, singer Steve Ucherek's occasional falsettos will either increase or dissuade your interest. Derivative but pleasingly so. Even if they sound no better than a bar band, it would still be one hell of a bar. So drink up. No FCCs. Start with 4, 10, 3, 2 – Boo

1) Up-tempo & driving. Nice souring guitar solo
*2) Bouncing number sounds like a Material Issue outtake.
*3) Pop song disguised as rock. Reminiscent of later-day Soul Asylum.
*4) Upbeat w/ the best sing-along chorus of the bunch. If not the single, then it should be.
5) Mid Tempo rocker with unexpected organ solo.
6) Nice guitar-driven mid-tempo number.
7) Darker with some prominent distortion
8) Mid Tempo. In one ear, out the other
9) Up-beat, poppy, jaunty number. Could pass as Brit Pop in today's stable.
*10) Six minute opus might be the best track. A Classic Rock hodgepodge of The White Stripes, Material Issue, & Deep Purple. Slow needless fade begins at 5:44.
