Apparently this band was formed out of the embers of Comets On Fire, who I have a big soft spot for, but this is the first thing I've heard of theirs so it was initially hard to stomach when this album started belting out the kind of cod '70s rock that had both Phil and Business Lady reaching for the Reef comparisons. To be honest when they go for that big brash dad rock sound with the harmonies and chunky riffs it's outside my enjoyment zone too but even so I can't deny that they do it well. Lenny Kravitz. When they let things stretch out and get jamming it's always impressive and I wish there was more of that, but a lot of the time they're playing the kind of AOR that's in thrall to the likes of The Eagles, Grateful Dead, Cream, CSNY, Santana...shamelessly retro sounds like the last 30 years never happened. It's been produced by none other than Tim Green, and I really can't fault the production. I can't fault a lot about it really except the fact that it's a throwback to stuff that I feel has been done as well as it's going to be done already and I don't really enjoy it. Apart from that it's decent, so you might like it. It's pretty different from the sprawling psychedelic scree their former band produced though.
