Album Review
MC Dizzy Jackson
Reviewed 2011-02-19 
The most obvious comparison is with Elvis Costello, both musically, but mostly vocally. There’s also a strong REM thing going on here, after all the band is out of Georgia. It’s a fairly rocking album, but definitely accessible. Standard instrumentation of guitar, bass, drums and keys. No FCC’s.

*My Favorites*: 1, 5, 8.

1. *(2:57) Fast. Driving, quick and repetitive guitar notes. Loud and catchy.
2. (3:59) Mid / Fast. Early REM sound, but a bit more forceful. Short guitar solos. Really rocking with a few slower-paced interludes. Some nice lyrics to boot.
3. (1:47) Mid. Similar to #2 with the interludes, but a smidgen slower and quieter and stretched out.
4. (2:45) Fast. Fast-paced rocker with some backing vocals. Guitar solos, drum heavy.
5. *(2:34) Mid. Guitar predominates, really has that Elvis Costello sound.
6. (3:01) Mid / Fast. Probably the most rocking number on the album with some nice stop/starts. Every instrument is out front and loud.
7. (5:17) Slow / Mid. Slower-paced vocal delivery than the other songs. The band alternates between slower and faster phrases.
8. *(2:05) Mid. Piano and vocal dirge. Nicely done.
