Album Review

The punchy pub rock-meets-power pop of the Scooters' debut EP, Peepshow, in no way prepared audiences for what was to come next with their 2002 full-length debut, I Can See Your House From Here. While Peepshow displayed the band's sense of melody and knack for well-crafted songs and solid production, I Can See Your House From Here is a remarkable step ahead in the maturity of the band's songwriting. While they've largely abandoned the punchy pop of their debut EP, with I Can See Your House From Here the Scooters have meticulously crafted a detailed, layered, sadly beautiful album. Gone is the sound of Argybargy-era Squeeze, and in its place the sound has shifted to warm, elegant pop reminiscent of Crowded House's Woodface. As both sounds are really variations on a theme, that may not seem radical, but it exhibits a remarkable amount of growth in a short period of time. Spiked with elegant background vocals and occasional piano and horn flourishes, this is an incredibly laid-back affair. But the Scooters are far from lazy, as their melodic skills have only strengthened with time. So while there is an almost complete absence of rockers here, the gentle acoustic pop of songs like "Guess Who" and "This Is How It Ends" is more immediate and more memorable than anything on their debut. As good as Peepshow was — and it was a very good debut EP — it in no way prepared audiences for this gem of a Brit-pop record, one that easily ranks among the best works of Travis and Coldplay.

Save the Scooters

This album is loaded. From the opening melody of This Is How It Ends, you realize you are in a sublime aural world where hooks, production, lyrics and performance all converge. Catchy as hell, yet deceptively clever, this band deserves to be heard. Give it a try, then spread the word. The music world needs bands like The Scooters.

This Cardiff, Wales-based quintet specializes in melodic alt pop, with an obvious Beatles influence apparent throughout. Originally formed during the late 90s, the Scooters began as a quartet, comprising Anthony Carey (vocals/guitar), Chris Kelly (vocals/guitar), Robert Molcher (bass), and Timothy Rooney (drums). By the dawn of the twenty-first century, the Scooters’ line-up had expanded to a quintet, as Tim’s keyboard-playing brother, Simon Rooney, signed on. Shortly thereafter, the Scooters began...
