Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2007-03-02
Folky rock from New Zealand. Polished sound; lead vocals get shaky quite a bit (8), but some tracks manage good harmonies (7). straightforward stuff that leans toward KFOG AOR rock. Simple electric guitar, some synth. It gets quirky but never develops that '80s kind of bounce. Lyrics aren't anything to write home about, but I found it likeable nonetheless. FCC clean.

1- Catchy upbeat pop
2- Peaceful midtempo, a bit sad, twangy
3- Bright pop, mid/fast
4- Mid/fast, goes for dark eerie feel
5- Upbeat, a bit quirky, w/keyboards.
6- Midtempo, weaker vocal (must be the "other guy" singing), a bit more downtrodden
7- Mid/fast, flowing. A bit pretty.
8- Pretty and slow, w/crunchier fast middle.
9- Crunchy sound, simple dumb lyrics, catchy.
10- Quiet start; gets a bit angular. Louder, wistful three-chord chorus near the end.
11- Slow, sentimental. Speeds up later.
