Album Review

The more things change in rock, the more they stay the same. Officially, rock's baby boomer era ended in the early '90s, when Nirvana and Pearl Jam exploded commercially and alternative rock became mainstream. From then on, generation X — not the baby boom generation — defined what was cutting-edge in rock. But the influence of boomer rock didn't disappear, and there are plenty of gen-X bands who have both '90s influences and '60s and '70s influences. Take Wayne, for example. Released in 2002, the alternative pop rockers' promising debut album, Music on Plastic, sounds contemporary by early-2000s standards, but also underscores their appreciation of '60s and '70s rock. The Beatles and Elton John are influences — one of the tracks is a fine cover of John's "Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road" — and so are alternative bands like R.E.M. and Radiohead. Another influence is, believe it or not, the Beach Boys. For a band who falls into the alternative pop/rock category, the Beach Boys might seem an unlikely influence. But the delicious harmonies on "Temporary" definitely bring to mind Brian Wilson and friends — just play "Temporary" after listening to "Wouldn't It Be Nice," and you can hear how the Beach Boys have affected some of Wayne's songs. One thing Wayne gets from all of their influences — baby boomer or gen-X — is a strong sense of melody and harmony. All of the songs on this CD are extremely melodic and accessible; Wayne, unlike some alternative bands, never goes out of their way to be abstract or aloof, and their songs always have an easy-to-absorb, easy-to-hum quality. Without question, Music on Plastic is a very promising debut.

After the original lineup of Metal Church reunited and delivered the comeback album Masterpeace in 1999, musical differences between the members still persisted. Lead vocalist David Wayne, pushing for a heavier, more straightforward sound, wound up exiting in 2000; he first re-formed Reverend, the band he'd started after his initial departure from Metal Church, and then -- while still keeping Reverend going -- formed a completely different band, called Wayne, with ex-Metal Church guitarist Craig...
