the jpoc review

Twelve tracks of mellow rock/pop music with lots of nice sounding catchy tunes in a sort of "REM-alike" style. There are no bad songs here but also nothing that leaps at you out of the speakers and screams "great music".

Having said that, the music here is a good deal more satisfying than that of many more commercial bands.

If there is a weakness on this album, it is the vocals. The singer is just not suited to some of the songs here. They do not suit his vocal style and delivery. As a good example is "Surface of the Moon." Listen to that track and then imagine it with Neil Young singing it. Other songs such as "I Won't Take the Blame" make fewer demands on the singer and they are better as a result.
