With all the melody one could ask for. Ed James is a melodic guitar
pop god. His hooky songs are catchy as a cold, the kind you never
want to get over. The harmonies and the melodies and guitar playing
will make you jump with joy...
James has signed a long term contract with MTV
NETWORKS, VH1 and VIACOM Worldwide in regards to his songs being
played on "8th and OCEAN", "MADE" , "MY SUPER SWEET 16" and other
projects. This will expose Ed James' songs to millions around
10/05/04 2004 release from this long time favorite of NOT LAME!
This is a collection of songs recorded during POPROCKET and after
and a few before that he is bringing together now (thanks Ed). Classic
influences abound. Part powerpop, with harmonic shades of Jellyfish
and the playfullness of XTC and more. Always chippy, happy and bouncy
and, most importantly, harmony-drenched. James is faultless in his
archetype mining of classic hook-magic. Think a lot of things: Adam
Schmitt, Candy, Owsley, The Rubinoos (a LOT of noos!) Rick Springfield,
Material Issue, Styx (the good stuff), The Flashcubes, The Toms.
The 14 songs here are short and sweet, catchy as the flu and refreshing
as a lemonade stand on a hot summer's day. No brainer. Extremely
Highly Recommended ...
