Review

The latest album from the Damnwells, entitled "No One Listens to the Band Anymore" is the result of an interesting project. The record is funded through Pledge Music where fans donate a certain amount of money for the recording process. In return the fans get anything from a signed cd to a concert in their livingroom.

The result is great. "No One Listens to the Band Anymore" is a really good album, with catchy pop tunes as well as slower songs. Singer Alex Dezen has both a great voice and the ability to write good songs.

First track out, the title track, is a great example of the more up-tempo catchy song on the album. It instantly has me tapping my feet and nodding my head. A nice way to start an album. Track number five, "The Great Unkown" is a fine example of the softer side of the band, with Dezen singing over an acoustic guitar. A simple arrangement, but the song is great and one of my favorite tracks. The Danmwells manage to perform both slow and up-tempo songs and never let the quality down. Overall all the songs feel solid and with just the right production.

"No One Listens to the Band Anymore" is a great album to listen to in the car, or on the beach, or when you just want to hear a really good record. Very impressive!
