Album Review

Take the punky but melodic sound of Green Day, then add a skanking backbeat and subtract the phony British accent. What you end up with is something very much like My Superhero, a fine young California ska band. Singer and chief songwriter Brian Gilmore has a truly winning way with a tune; songs like the title track and "Going Somewhere" flow effortlessly on waves of delicious melody. His lyrical grasp is a bit less sure, however — he's obviously hoping no one will call him on lines like "Right now your life's like a couch/Inside a house where no one wants to be." But the musical pleasures are more than enough to distract from the occasional verbal clunker. There's a great, raucous cover version of "Groovy Kind of Love" and some thoroughly charming Moog playing courtesy of keyboardist Mike Berault on "Another Kind." It's unusual to find a debut effort from a punk-ska band that sounds this good.
