List price $12.99
Pure pop / 5
I thought I read somewhere that Blue Cartoon acquired a new lead singer for this latest CD. If so, it makes little difference. This band is at the forefront of Beatle-influenced power pop, yet they seem to receive little press. That's a shame because almost every song on this new disc is slickly produced and radio-friendly. Plus, they have now released three straight phenomenal CDs, with nary a hiccup or clunker among their recordings.
For any fan of the Beatles, XTC, Phantom Planet, Candy Butchers, Tories, Churchills, Wondermints, Sugarbomb, Holland, Squeeze, Cotton Mather, and Bigger Lovers.
