"The songs on this album range from upbeat and catchy to smooth and mellow. Overall, an excellent album for feeling good. The two love ballads, "Will You Still Love Me" and "Just When I Needed You" tug at your emotions, putting you in a state of reflection. Awesoome!"
BECAUSE it's great!

"After the death of original member Marc Connors in 1991, The Nylons seemed to go into a holding pattern. There was the lackluster live album and a followup studio album that seemed unsure of itself. But then new vocalists Garth Mosbaugh and Gavin Hope joined original members Arnold Robinson and Claude Morrison, and the fruits of this union brought us "Because," the strongest Nylons CD since the brilliant "Rockapella." The overbearing drums and synths were removed, and back in their place are tightly focused multi-vocal arrangements. Just zero in on the disc's title track, a cover of the classic Beatles' song. This IS vocal magic. Everything is so perfect, so fine, your mind will trick you into filling in any instrumental details you think were missing. Even an overworked chestnut like the Bee Gees' "Too Much Heaven" comes off as fresh, even delicate. Amid the distinctive covers of everyone from Sam Cooke ("A Change Is Gonna Come") to The Zombies ("Time Of The Season"), the Nylons were discovering their own songwriting voices. "No Pain No Gain" and "Caught" fit right in next to songs like "Love TKO," providing the disc with more than just a showcase for vocal acrobatics. Keyboards and drum tracks still flesh out certain arrangemets, but no longer intrude on the true reason The Nylons formed, and that is to sign dazzlingly. And that they do on "Because.""
