EDITORS’ NOTES

How does a down-to-earth rock band follow up a runaway pop hit? On Egomaniac, KONGOS confront the outsized expectations that followed the success of “Come With Me Now." They take their success with a wink on “I Want It Free” and “Take It From Me.” “The World Would Run Better” skewers celebrity megalomania and their frivolous demands. Fans who fell in love with the band’s vibrant sound—the slide guitar, accordion, and bounce-house rhythms—will be thrilled that KONGOS stayed true to themselves on Egomaniac. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
