Album Review

Moanin' is a bold step forward for Mr. Airplane Man. The duo's previous release, Red Lite, was a rough collection of appealing originals spiked by some well-chosen punk and blues covers, but it was marred, to some extent, by fuzzy sound — like watching a four-star movie on a two-star TV. Fortunately, the production on their Detroit-recorded third effort is cleaner and brighter, and singer/guitarist Margaret Garrett's strong vocals pack a lot more punch.

With the soulful, bluesy slink of Moanin', they join the proud local garage rock tradition spearheaded by DMZ in the 1970s and the Lyres in the 1980s. ~ Kathleen C. Fennessy, Rovi

Granted, MAM would stand out in any crowd, even without the assistance of an Evans, a Long Gone John, or the late Mark Sandman (Morphine), who became...
