two cents worth...

Well, the main album review certainly nails the sources of The Thorns' inspiration, but the album has "no substance"? What's wrong with just being a BEAUTIFUL, extremely listenable album? The Thorns IS such an album, and well worth owning...if you just want to sample, try I Can't Remember, a 5-star heartbreaker, and I Set the World on Fire to get your toes tapping. Perhaps this album doesn't break new musical ground, but it is a solid listen with no bad tracks...and I really can't name that many albums in my collection like that. A total pleasure!

I agree about the original review

Poor excuse for some music snob. This is a nice album. It's not great. It's DEFINITELY no attempt at a supergroup. Maybe the reviewer is a big Damn Yankees fan or something.
Of course the reviewer lost all cred by saying that M Sweet has a had a career with only one great album. 100% fun was very solid, as was Blue Sky on Mars.

lame, yet again apple

Whole is Better than Sum of Parts

Contrary to several of the other posts, I really don't like any of these guys solo at all. In fact, Shawn Mullins is a talented musician but when I hear his voice I want to throw out the speakers. But that all went away when these three came together. I think the tendency is to overrate so I'll just say its really a good album, some amazing standouts and the harmonies are better than CSN (although the comparisons are obvious).
