Album Review

Cranking into the E Street rocker "Cross Town Cafe," the Push Stars (with special guest star Emily Weber of EverSinceDayOne on sax) kick off their anxiously awaited second album. It was so anxiously awaited, in fact, that the band opted for a seven-song EP as opposed to a full-length follow-up to their Imago debut Meet Me at the Fair. Though only half as long as their debut, the album delivers the same mix of intelligent writing, full, well-balanced orchestration, and fun. From the calm and loving ballad "Ocean View" to the coherent play of "Meet Me at the Fair" and the percussive grooves of "Counting the Minutes," this EP packs it all in. It's no wonder the band is such a favorite or why their fans were so hungry for a second release. Combining award-winning songwriter Chris Trapper's varied six-string styles and mostly tuneful vocals with the solid and steady rhythm section of drummer Ryan MacMillan and bassist/keyboardist/engineer Dan McLoughlin, the Stars appear to be on the rise.

Customer Reviews

Great EP

Um, not to dump on anyone, Booger, but this CD was just put on iTunes so it couldn't be reviewed before. The Pushstars are a great band, and this is one of my favorite of their discs. Their lyrics are great, and the music good. My favorite is Tonight, a really great break up song. I love the line, "tonight is just one night in a lifetime of night times."

Sowing the seeds

The Stars were mere younglings here and compared to their later stuff, sure, it is not as accomplished--but still fantastic, and any Guster fan will enjoy it. Incidentally, Booger is an idiot. Keg On My Coffin, indeed, is fantastic--but Any Little Town and Boston Girl are among many other classic PS tunes. Enjoy!

Ummmm not quite

I'd just like to say that although this is a little older, and clearly from when this band was just starting out- it is not so bad no one wrote a reveiw until....' whatever that guy said. Christopher Trapper is one of the most talented, beautiful people that I have ever had the pleasure of encountering. He is truly gifted, and all of his music is irresistably organic, maybe you just don't get it.
