AMERICA Here And Now Burgundy/Sony BMG (2006)


This studio CD (disc 1 of 2) kicks off with the whimsical pop of 'Chasing The Rainbow', some nicely layered work, gentle pop without being a ballad.

'Indian Summer', with lots of 'ooooh's' in the background and plenty of strumming, mixes 60s pop with the lighter end of Brit-pop.

There's elements of heavy folk and singer/songwriter in with the whimsical guitar pop. Many tracks lack direction, and the few songs that start off with any balls soon lose them.

Disc 2, recorded live in October 2005, is heavier, rougher, as you'd expect from the live situation, and with the tight playing, is an improvement on the lacklustre drifting of the studio set. That said, it could just be the same drifting whimsical pop with a kick up the backside.

This kind of material is fine as a single or two, but a whole album of it was just too difficult.
