Re: New Albums I Like a Lot
I found the new Fountains of Wayne to be merely so-so. There's nothing wrong with it, per se, but I thought "Welcome Interstate managers" and "Utopia Parkway" were much more interesting. Even their b-sides collection, Out of State Plates, had more going on.
Traffic and Weather seems like the same song done ten different times using ten different characters, with a couple of slower numbers thrown in for good measure.
...this from the band that did "Haley's Waitress", perhaps the most cracking pop tune I've heard this decade.
We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
