CD Reviews

"Killjoy" is honest and inspired
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Matt Keating is a New York musician who has played in the city all his life, nowadays in Greenwich Village. "Killjoy," his third LP, is the next-best thing to hearing him live in a crowded Village pub. The title track opens the album with driving electric guitar, and Keating's distinct voice echoes through the album. The best songs are "Don't go the Road Alone," "By the Way," and "Emily," which was a hit on indie radio a few summers back. Keating's tunes range from the slow and pained to heavy guitar rock, and reflect his musical diversity. Sticking to the basics: guitar, drums, and bass, Keating lets you into his world of broken dreams and social commentary, and the result is a thoroughly satisfying album. Be sure to check out Keating's other albums, "Tell it to Yourself," and "Scaryarea." Seeing Keating live with or without his band makes for a good night in the city. Each show he plays is an awesome experience--I try to get down to the city whenever I can to see him play."
