CD Reviews

Delectable pop

"Maybe I'm stuck in the Mersey Beat avalanche which followed the Beatles to the United States, but "Failure" by the Posies is a near perfect match.

"Longest Line" opens with a comely acoustic guitar and backup vocal harmony, then moves into a toe-tapping feel-good ditty with shimmering electric guitar. If name dropping is proper here, "Under Easy" has the Hollies majestic vocal harmonies written all over. "Under Easy" opens with the Posies typical acoustic introduction, then seaways into a easy going jingle-jangle of acoustic and electric guitars. "What Little Remains" shines with the Posies glorious vocal harmonies.

I call "Failure" delectable pop."
My favorite band.

"This record was recorded as a demo. Its ironic that its out on CD since it was basically a tape passed around at thier shows. And its still awesome. Even in thier late teens (!?), they constructed some of the best lyrics and power pop melodies ever. Ken Stringfellow might have looked like a girl (with dangling earrings to boot)but these boys kicked ass, live. this is actually the re-issue of the 15th anniversary edition, not just an import. It has a bunch of extra stuff for diehard fans (and thats pretty much the only kind of fans this band has) to enjoy. Like many releases from the band, i found out about it much later... They deserved so much more."
