Synopsis

Album Description
The nine piece flavorful ska band returns with their sophomore album "Lost in the Music" and judging from the title, the band hit the nail on the head. (There's not even a doubt in my mind that this band could ever have a slump.) If you haven't seen a Liquid Cheese show live, then buying the album is a great way to get introduced to this peppy, yet unique band. Their horn section is as polished as some of the big acts out there and the vocals are just so defined that the mixture just works. "From the Start" begins the 12-song set. The horns and rhythm epitomizes what makes ska music so fun. The quick beats and symbols are sure to have your head moving. "Drunken Man" and "Day Before Today" are quality songs on the album. On "No Different" you get to hear vocals from the majority of the band, which is nice. Horns and drums follow the introduction and lead vocalist Sam Sullivan's voice is so strong and versatile. After listening to a number of songs of ska-inspired tunes, "La Soltera" makes you take note. Sung completely in Spanish, "La Soltera" is extremely polished with vocals and horns which are reminiscent of the great mariachi bands. There is also a salsa-infused rhythm that any "soltera" (single) person could dance the night away to at a club. But it's the song "Get It Right" that takes the album to another level. The horn-led intro to the song is so polished it's scary. On this song Sullivan seems to be channeling the late Sublime singer Brad Nowell, which totally restores some faith in "fun" music. But it's also John-Michael Vasquez's backing vocals that add another dimension to this fun-filled cut.
