Album Review

Sweaty, working-class, well-rehearsed indie rock is as old as the '80s, but it's uncanny how the old dog snaps to attention whenever thrown a good bone. The David Mirabella-fronted Rationales are as Boston as Fenway Park, as classic-sounding as a Friday at the Rat, and as reliable as a hot mug-a-chowdah. On The Distance in Between, one perceives a species of big-sounding Beantown past, pieces of Big Dipper, Dumptruck, early Del Fuegos, Dogmatics, Lemonheads, Lyres, early Neighborhoods, '90s Dinosaur Jr., and especially Buffalo Tom's (whose leader, Bill Janovitz, cameos on backing vocals) mix of R.E.M. roots with heftier guitars. Like the Jayhawks and Windbreakers, the group uses heavy and light guitars simultaneously with busy piano and a tight, non-flashy, supple rhythm section, playing strapping verse/chorus/verse/bridge structures. Not everything has to be novel; it just has to be good. ~ Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover, Rovi

Great whole family loves this album!

So good!

This album has one of those great driving with the windows down kind of vibes going on. It's a little power pop, a little rock and roll and a lot awesome. A must have!
