Reviewed by Tim Holden

The Ohio-based rock band had four albums and over 10 years to hone their musical skills, 'Suburba' should be a great album and it does not disappoint. Something of a concept work dealing with living and growing up in the suburbs, the album covers a lot of ground without dodging issues or looking at the past through rose colour spectacles. The group's trademark vocal harmonies and twin guitar breaks are wonderfully handled in the production resulting in a full sound that is not too busy and lyrics that are not lost. The older among us will recognise the Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty style riffs while the younger will be recalling the Darkness as the album powers forward without letup. If '80s vocal harmony rock with a lot of fuzz guitar is not your thing then this is definitely one to avoid. But otherwise get hold 'Suburba' as this is truly outstanding of its type.

Product Description

Suburba is an album like nothing else you will hear today.

Endlessly poppy, galactically ambitious, and dripping with honest, candid emotion, this is what a rock record is supposed to sound like. This is what a rock record is supposed to feel like.
