Album Review

The more things change in music, the more they stay the same. The alternative rockers of the 1990s may have caused so-called corporate rockers like Poison and Bon Jovi to become less visible, but at the same time, the worship of 1970s baby boomer culture was alive and well among post-baby boomers. In 1998, one of the most memorable examples of 1970s-flavored music came from the New Radicals. Although Radicals singer/leader Gregg Alexander was quick to espouse a left-wing point of view, Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too doesn't beat listeners over the head with a sociopolitical agenda. Nor is the CD an exercise in angry 1990s angst rock. Rather, Alexander's band is a congenial and highly melodic throwback to the rock and blue-eyed soul of the early to mid-'70s. Alexander's vocals have a very Mick Jagger-ish quality, but while the Rolling Stones were a rock & roll band that occasionally dabbled in soul and funk, the Radicals favor pop/rock that is consistently mindful of classic Northern soul. Hook-happy offerings like "Jehovah Made This Whole Joint for You," "Flowers," and "Mother We Just Can't Get Enough" give the impression that Alexander holds the Stones and the artists of Motown Records in equally high regard. Without question, Brainwashed was among the more promising releases of late 1998.

A Hidden Gem

Every now and then an album comes along that's unique. This is one of them. The fact that it's so good is probably down to the fact that not many people own it and therefore not as commercialised as other albums. From the opening thunder of 'Mother we just can't get enough' to the sadly comic story of ' I hope i just didn't give away the ending' you somehow feel alive and more aware of the work and effort that went into creating a very underated album. What admires me the most is that in all due respect to the musicians and people who worked on the album, this really is a one man show. Gregg Alexander quite frankly was the New Radicals and should be held in praise with the likes of Young and Dylan. If you're looking for something different with a little kick I would insist you give this one a listen. Although only a few years old, i guarantee in time that this album will become a masterpiece and will be up there with the likes of 'Dark side of the moon' and 'Revolver'. The album also includes the radio smash 'You get what you give', even that alone is worth buying the album.
