Album Review

It's easy to see the intent of the album title "Anthem" from Seattle quintet Goodness. Filled with classic declarations of independence, small-town escapes, and challenges to complacency, the record is definitely earnest. The melodies are tuneful, anchored by a bit of grunge and lead vocalist Carrie Akre's sweetly strong voice. But the slacker grooves leave many dramatic lyrics without the fire that carries most rock anthems. But as in other releases, Goodness rises above average hard rock bands with flashes of insight and punk passion. The surprisingly catchy ballad "I'd Rather" takes a too-tired-to-be-pissed look at L.A. "I keep an open mind/I try to get along/but the women are all too pretty/and I just can't put that on/so I keep to myself/'cause it's the one thing that I know...and I'd like to join the party/but there's some things I won't do/I would rather be alone than here with you." Revved up rockers like "Bitter Man" show the band's less polished side and let Akre's voice loose. ~ Theresa E. LaVeck, Rovi
