Synopsis

Amazon.com
Garageland's AM-radio-friendly rock riffs and widescreen melodies, tailor-made for blasting out of the car stereo, have made them enormous in native Auckland, New Zealand, where their first three albums have gone gold. For Scorpio Righting, the four-piece group checked into Neil Finn's studio overlooking the black sands of Kare Kare Beach (where Crowded House made 1993's Together Alone) and spent eight months writing, recording, and simply jamming until a full-length album emerged. The idyllic surroundings contribute to an irresistible amalgam of pop hooks ("Kiss It All Goodbye"), off-the-cuff lyrics ("I'm goin' crazy / You should come too," singer-songwriter Jeremy Eade barks on the retro "Crazy"), and sing-along choruses ("High Way") that make this Garageland's most brazenly ambitious project yet. An album that is truly impossible not to enjoy. --Aidin Vaziri
 

CD Reviews

A lot of fun
11/21/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The songwriting is very hook-driven, with intelligent lyrics and great pop melodies. The band can really rock out.It's really hard to go wrong with New Zealand bands. You get a lot of bang for the buck.Give them a shot."
