A good album from American, presumed newcomers, Left Lane Ends. They are a 5-piece guitar/keys/drums outfit with an ear for a good tune. The musicianship is excellent with variety of sound developing throughout the album, from the spacious, effect laden "Out Of My Head" sounding a little like Lenny Kravitz, to the slide guitar, sitar and tremolo of "On Every Corner", In fact the experiments with guitar sounds, effects and drum patterns are reminiscent of our own Delirious?. All the songs are rooted, in some measure, to a Bible verse or passage. This is very refreshing. The production, whilst very competent, is still a little thin and they would benefit from record company input - which is sure to come in the near future. Listenable, without ever setting the soul on fire, this is a solid album and a band to watch out for.
