Just occasionally you get an album that slowly, insidiously, takes it grip. That album is 'Exit 263'
and the band is Chamberlain, a four-piece from Nashville, Indiana. Whilst the general styling of this
album is American alt-country rock, that shouldn't be a deterrent if you don't like that genre. Exit 263
is basically about great songs and great hooks, courtesy of talented vocalist David Moore and guitarist
At times, this is redolent of Graham Parker or even The Mavericks. It seems that
Chamberlain leave the best for last: just savour the penultimate tracks on the album: 'You Can't Have It All'
has that memorable chorus, whilst 'Masterpiece' in a minor sort of way is exactly what it says on the tin.
