MECCA NORMAL: The Observer: CD

Jul 13, 2006

I never really got Mecca Normal. With this album I continue to not get them. Yet I feel like I should like them because they are Canadian and because Jean Smith was apparently the one who coined the phrase “riot grrrl.” But this is the kind of album that I will never listen to again. I don’t like songs that are really just long poems set to music with no choruses, hooks, or structure. Perhaps this makes me shallow, or simple, or something. I really just want music that makes me excited and happy and this does neither.
