Powderfinger in fine form

"Powderfinger's previous album "Double Allergic" introduced a more mellow, melodic and personal style to their grunge roots. On this album the band continues to evolve further along that path - the harder sound is still there in places, but generaly this is a pretty mellow CD. Vocalist Bernard Fanning sings in a more Radioheadish tone on a number of tracks.This album got a lot of radioplay and tracks like "passenger", "day you come", "lemon sunrise", "private man" are pretty good. The album and music doesn't break ground but has more personality than most of the blandness played on Aussie radio.The album does grow on you over time although it lacks a few hard hitting and more interesting tracks of its predecessor. This is a good one for new and old fans."
Another solid effort

"While the "indie-rock" part of me doesn't want to admit it, this album isn't quite as good as Odessey No. 5. It's only a half-step behind however. I couldn't resist exposer to this album when I was living in Australia. When it was first released it shot right to the top of the Australian charts, with at least three singles being played constantly by MMM and JJJ. The album well deserved this kind of attention, and I only wish it could have been exposed to the American market in the same way.I'd say about 3/4 of the album is 4 to 5 stars, while two or three cuts would only get a 2 or 3 from me. The songwriting and vocals are solid, but the production is lacking; especially when compared to Odessey No. 5. It's also unfortunate that Powderfinger's newest c.d. "Vulture Street" is again only available as an import despite getting domestic distribution for Odessey No. 5."
