Album Review

This Alabama group are a tight, polished power pop band who could be mistaken for being from the Midwest, particularly with a catchy uptempo and guitar-fuelled nugget like "New Shade of Red," that sounds like a cross between the Kinks and Gin Blossoms. Lead singer Michael Shackelford also shines on the midtempo, galloping "Everytime" that recalls the Clarks if they'd been influenced by the Killers. At times, though, the band get a tad too comfortable in this niche, resulting in good but rather ordinary pop/rock tracks like "Something Else" which isn't really "something else." But thankfully, that charm returns with the tight and sugary roots rock of "Ghostriders" with the hi hat of drummer Brooks Marks working overtime. Unfortunately they hit a mellow '70s era vibe with "Killing Me" that sounds like Bread, but they redeem themselves later with a fabulous four/four timed "Sentimental Flow" that brings to mind Weezer without the huge guitar hook but with great harmonies. The album's sleeper pick or dark horse might be the rather downbeat but winding and pleasing "Melody," despite it petering out after just two minutes. Two other fine but unspectacular tunes are the punchy "It's Not the End" and "See You in the Underground." If there are any huge drawbacks, it's the ten-minute "Calling Your Name," which contains roughly six to seven minutes of dead air, a tired old "hidden bonus track" ploy that rarely impresses.

Customer Reviews

Just Good Music

No gimmicks or ridiculous concepts. Just good music - rock n roll clean and simple. These guys have clear inspiration from many of the greats and the tracks combine for one heck of a good time. This is a "buy the album" - one track just isn't enough. My top three: "Sentimental Flaw", "Everytime" and "Killing Me".

Stuck In Reverse

If you're looking for something new and ahead of its time, you won't find it here. The Rewinds are a very stripped-down rock band. Nothing revolutionary, but they're packed with some catchy guitar rhythms. It does bring to mind Weezer and Fountains of Wayne. Overall, it's very consistent. My only complaint is that there isn't really any depth. Every song's lyrics seems to be about longing for some lost lover or friend. Dwelling on and chasing after the past, it's no wonder they are called The Rewinds.

Wonderful Music

I am glad that there is still some good music out there to listen to like the rewinds. They have good clean rock and that is hard to find now a days. rock on!


Genre: Alternative

Years Active:

Before the power pop band the Rewinds were the Rewinds, they were All Tomorrow's Parties, the Birmingham, AL, trio comprised of vocalist and guitarist Glenn Drennen, bassist Chris Markham, and drummer Brooks Marks. After recording a demo, the bandmembers decided they needed to fill out their sound, and added second guitarist Michael Shackelford. As it turned out, however, Shackelford was a singer and songwriter in his own right, and when the rest of the band (now called the Rewinds) heard his work,...
