Reseña de álbum

Better Than Ezra was always a staunchly classicist band, raised on the college rock of the '80s and turning out a series of earnest records that paid homage to that sound but were released in the post-grunge era. They had more success than most post-grungers since they were classicists dressed up in heavy sincerity, but they had hooks, best illustrated on the breakthrough "Good" and the yearning "Desperately Wanting." But as the '90s drew to a close, most guitar bands of the mid-'90s were hit hard by shifting tastes and changing fashions, leaving the group out in the cold along with many of their peers. BTE regrouped on a new label, Beyond, turning out Closer in 2001. In one sense, time treated the group well, since they simply became better at their craft. Kevin Griffin's songwriting is easier, rarely suffering from the strained sincerity that dragged down many of their albums. This time around, his melodic sense is sharper — not just on rockers, but on ballads — and his songs are given excellent treatment by a muscular band, presented in a supple production by Brad Wood. If there is a problem with the record, it's because Closer is occasionally constrained by its time, particularly on the neo-hip-hop of two tracks featuring DJ Swamp (though "Rolling," featuring Toddy, is a highlight). These aren't necessarily bad — and the single "Extra Ordinary" is catchy, despite Griffin's rap — but they do give the album an appearance of trying too hard, when this really is the most natural and best record they've ever made.

Better Than Ezra ayudó a abrir las compuertas para una infinidad de grupos mainstream de pop-rock de fines de los 90 al combinar rock y melodías, que dieron como resultado una forma digerible de música alternativa. Formado en 1988 por varios estudiantes de universidad asentados en New Orleans, el trío logró su mayor éxito en 1995, cuando su álbum debut Deluxe produjo tres simples exitosos (incluyendo el hit de rock moderno "Good"). En 1996, le siguió Friction, Baby, pero debido a su similar sonido...
