MEJ - Play on


Good old-rock school flavour
One question: You've been listening to Tom Petty lately, have you? Just joking. If an influence is well used, than it may only do better to the song. This is exactly the case with a tune. It's a 'typical' folk-rock tune with repeated chorus and a broken-man story in the background, but one has to try very hard not to sound funny when trying to create such music. I think that the band was succesful. It keeps balance between melody and mood, it's recorded quite professionally, guitars sounds as if the player knew how to handle it. The riff at the beginning sounds like a mixture of The Police rhythm and Neil Young-like sense of composition. Not corny at all. Mature and nice to listen it's 5 out of 5.
