Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
Well, I don’t know what’s up, but the first couple of times I listened to this I did not care for it. I am actually not sure why I kept at it, but I am glad I did because today I like it.
It is an interesting brand of pop-rock music. It’s got a sort of a Sgt.Pepper’s feel to it. Especially with the 60s –ish marchy rat-a-tat drumline on title track, Captain Love.
At times they use this kind of weird affected vocals, in unison.
I think prefer this for maybe one or two songs in a mix, but the whole cd in one dose is perhaps a bit too much for me. I think the style grows old after a couple of songs, even though they’re good. Maybe this is just a personal thing.
But certainly fits the bill when looking for something different.
