HIDDEN TRACKS: The Sweet Sounds of Excess: CD

I swear, whatever I did to deserve getting so much indie rock to review, I apologize! Please! End the deluge! Contains the line, “I wanna be your whore/I wanna be all yours.” Lots of new-school Dr. Frank-esque vocals, and, once again, tons of R.E.M. influence. One pretty alright song (“Insomnia”). More of that, less of the rest! If this were a cereal, it’d be a defective box, containing mostly Special K (and advertised as such), but with a little sprinkling of Honey Nut Chex thrown in (fortunately) by mistake. The end!
