Album Review

The debut album by an underrated British psych-pop group, the Dylans, is one of the most enjoyable guitar pop albums of its era. Coming as it did during the first flowering of grunge, the defiantly '60s-inspired feel of the band (the name, the Rickenbacker jangle that colors all the songs, song titles like "Mary Quant in Blue") was simply not in step with the times. Singer and primary songwriter Colin Gregory doesn't have the best voice, but he wisely stays within his range, and his unfailingly catchy tunes and often witty lyrics are strong enough to stand up, despite the vocal flaws. Highlights include the sweeping single "She Drops Bombs" and the groovy "Planet Love," which has the psychedelic wiggle of a classic Stone Roses track; while not all the songs are up to that high level — the closing "Indian Sun" doesn't justify its five-and-a-half minutes — The Dylans is sure to be of interest to anyone who loves the Dentists or the House of Love.
