|Four modest instros with very tangential surf references lie amidst pedestrian pop-rock material.|
Picks: Melodia Cosaca, Morir Un Poco
Track by Track Review
A classic melody borrowed from Scotch traditions is played on piano-like keys. It's really quite fun, but also not very special. Light weight, yet enjoyable.
Bordering on spaghetti western, "Melodia Cosaca" has a haunting melody with a gentle sound. The melody is really good, and the arrangement is relatively well developed. Fine playing all around.
"Morir Un Poco" is a slow number with a mysterious melody that's not quite surf, but has enough of a sound to carry it off. The mystery is born of the sadness of Mediterranean classics.
This is a gentle popster, with a playful rhythm and slow melody line. Titled as if it is the band's opening theme, it's simplicity would allow an easy warm-up before the vocals come along.
