Album Review

If the band name has you expecting swampy roots rock, think again. Voodoo Blue plays straight-up power pop with a slightly punky edge, but you wouldn't exactly call them pop-punk: their sound is more crispy than crunchy and they never succumb to speed for speed's sake. Imagine a less corporate-sounding and more personable Click Five and you'll have a good idea what to expect. They make a mighty big sound for a three-piece, in part because all three of them sing harmonies (and sing them very, very well). They also make an impressive variety of sounds within the general boundaries of their genre: there are, for example, the stomping 6/8 rhythm on "Great Escape," the sugar-sweet harmonizing on "Cherry Hill," the faint whiff of cowpunk and the weird drum-line coda on "31st Street (Drumline)," and the deceptively simple-sounding "Beach Blanket Boredom," with its strangely baroque bridge. The lyrics won't change your world view but they won't embarrass you either (though someone needs to tell these guys that "Where the hell is rock & roll?" is a dumb question). Overall, this is a very fine album from a band that bears watching.

More Please!!

Great sound, listen to Good 4 no 1 to get a good taste of what the album is like. you won't be disappointed. wish they had another album on here cause i would buy with no hesitation.

Great Album

Used to play the circuit with these guys back in the day and was always impressed with the crafty song writing and the big sound they were able to create. Amazing drummer as well….always wondered what happened to these guys after the band broke up.
