This band comes fully developed, with a wide range of familiar timbres that somehow, together, make a punchy, original whole.
It's power pop, it's hard rock, it's clever and sensitive and from their video for the wonderful cover of "Let it snow", not included in this set, it can be funny too.
Pleasing that Scottish rockers choose not to soak their voices in Mid-Atlantic drawl, though their sound is distinctly tinged with North American Alt.Rock (ill Nino (get your act together with accents in your permissible character set please play) comes frequently to mind in the listening). The playing is sharp and snappy, the drums, and bass, tight precise and simply stated. Vocals are not over complex and are, I'm sure, reproduced well in the live set which I will try to see ASAP. Their myspace has a good taster selection. Buy this! It's a blast!
