Francaise rock et roll

1. S.O.S. In Bel Air – Phoenix – The catchiest song off their last album and neither song nor album has lit the world on fire, but that doesn’t mean this catchy electronic pop rock shouldn’t have done better – B+

2. Rock n Roll Fantasy – The Kinks – The same concept as “Oklahoma, USA” and it also appears to have the same results though why shouldn’t people daydream their life away? What’s it to you? – B+

3. Heatwave – Martha Reeves And The Vandellas – Sweaty desire, inescapable so don’t escape – A+

4. Tricky Kid – Tricky – If they would give the man a visa perhaps we could actually hear him now – A

5. Tulane – Joan Jett And The Blackhearts – An entirely credible Chuck cover – A

6. State Of Grace – Taylor Swift – Her grown up statement stands as a signal achievement; a wonderful song – A

7. Walk Away – Kevin Jenkins – Truly beautiful song, haunting jazz flecked wonder –B+

8. Don’t Play That Song – Ben E. King – Storybook heartbreaker – A

9. Amazing Love – JJ McCabe And Fallin’ Angel – Wonderful guitar all over this ballad – B+

10. Don’t Matter – Kings Of Leon – Their most straighahead rocker, kinda bland and sputters on take off – B-
