KEVIN CAHOON AND GHETTO COWBOY: Doll: CD

Name, artwork, album title…all signs point to glam pop. The first song sounds like that Coyote Shivers tune from the end of the movie Empire Records. In fact, the whole album comes off like a ‘90s alterna soundtrack; a few good songs but mostly watered down, slick and dull. I had high hopes for this one and I am usually a sucker for the style of music that Kevin Cahoon seems to be shooting for. This one just falls a little flat. A little more Lee Harvey Oswald Band and a little less Shirley Manson and this band could really be on to something. Hopefully next time they will bust out their Jayne County records for inspiration before they go in to record.
