Canadian pop-rockers Lost Coin have created an excellent independently released CD with plenty of catchy songs, creative production and lyrics that have much to say. The five piece have been together for four years and are based in Ontario and ‘Human’ is their second album. From the energetic opening title song through to the funky rock of “Everything You Are” to the heavy guitar riffing of “Let It Go”, the band seem capable of being musical chameleons. This is the album’s biggest strength and possibly one of its weaknesses, depending on what you want. Personally I like an album with plenty of variety but it does mean that it’s difficult to categorise the band. Funky pop-rock is probably the simplest way of defining this in a similar vein to British bands Riverdeep and Phatfish.
