REIGNING SOUND: Time Bomb High School: CD

This band definitely has a British Invasion influence. There’s a little bit of Beatles, Animals and Them in the structure of songs like “Stormy Weather,” “Straight Shooter,” and “Brown Paper Sack.” “I Don’t Believe” sounds a bit like the Troggs. Everything sounds catchy and familiar in an oldies station sort of way. With more production and a little polish they could sound like Bruce Springsteen. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen.
