Reviewer :

Year: 2007
Label: Jam
Genre: Prog-Rock/Art Rock
Artist discography


Minnesota based singer/songwriter Terry Eason sounds like Niclas Frisk of Atomic Swing (remember the hit "Stone me in to your groove"?)when he sings.
Just listen to "Beginning of the sun" from Eason´s 8th solo album "Sentimental vanity", the music however leans more towards psychedelic piano based indie prog.
It´s very difficult to label this music and why should I?
The only thing that should matter is if the songs are great, Terry doesn´t write songs to end up on American Idol - no singer on that show would understand his quirky tunes anyhow.
He´s an odd songwriter that does about anything that suits him for the moment, whatever the song needs.

It´s an interesting album but I also really can´t get into the music the way I want to, there are some cool songs on it ofcourse or how do you feel about a more jazzy Gregg Alexander like in "Miss Egmont".
If you think Ben Folds collaborating with Bob Dylan sounds like a nice thing, then the result very well could be "Karma bull".
The Tom Petty-like "Miracle man" is one of my favorites but I think "Cartwheels and cotillions" is nice too, this one reminds a bit of a mix between 10cc and Todd Rundgren.
The Stranglers meets Talking Heads in "Megalomaniac", so you see - there are plenty of varied musical influences here.

Did you know that?

The Goo Goo Dolls initially consisted of John Rzeznik (vocals, guitar), Robby Takac (vocals, bass guitar) and George Tutuska (drums, percussion). While Takac and Tutuska had been long-time friends in school, Rzeznik was playing in the band The Beaumonts, with Takac’s cousin. The three founded the band under the name "Sex Maggots". However, when a club owner booked the band, he requested they change the name, as the local newspaper could not print their current name. The trio picked the current name out of a True Detective ad for a toy called a Goo Goo Doll.
