TWO LEFT FEET: Self-titled: CD

Jul 03, 2009

Two Left Feet has something interesting going on, yet something is missing. Big rock guitars mixed with poppy synth lines and occasional brass sound like they’re reaching for something but not quite making it. They’re almost there, and I feel like they could be really good if they finally nailed it (and maybe got a different vocalist. Sorry, but that’s a deal breaker for me). Imagine a harder-rocking and less-whiny Ozma with horns (I bet a shiny nickel they’re ex-rude boys). Hey, at least you get a lot of bang for your buck—this self-titled album has seventeen tracks, and the songs don’t fall into the trap of all sounding alike. All said, I think this could grow on me.
