Avis sur l’album

This Portland, OR, quartet knows how to get a beleaguered reviewer's attention. They cite the late-'60s Kinks, Pretty Things (in fact, they've recorded "She's a Lover"), Small Faces, and Who's psych-pop classics as their inspirations, and serve up a good, old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness concept LP that's lyrically like these British Invasion heroes — and their later offspring, the Jam. That is to say, Lottery is a story LP with a strong, unforced, immediately relevant theme, not some notoriously indulgent prog rock wank about magic Hobbits and trolls or some such rot.

And the music also seems to connect from track to track, the sign of developed pop songwriters. Even the cover art is good, with a potpourri of life's artifacts crammed into a bubblegum machine. Best track: the slowly unfolding, mesmeric "Camera," every bit as good as their old faves.
