Let It Rest
3/18/2003 | Skratch Magazine | Album Review
The third full-length release from this Chapel Hill, NC, quartet is a lively dozen guitar-heavy pop songs in the vein of The Plimsouls and Elvis Costello. Nearly all the tunes on this disc are catchy, upbeat numbers. Unfortunately, some of the retro guitar solos on this disc don't seem to fit the band's style, tending to get a bit indulgent. The positive energy of these tunes keeps this album rolling along at a brisk pace, but on the sixth track the band breaks into a slow, ill-advised tune, "Frozen in Mid-gesture", which catches the band with no tune and droning lyrics that should have been frozen and forgotten. Luckily, it's the only bad song on this album-and that says a lot these days. These guys are definite up-and-comers and should be around for quite a while.
