New releases Week Of July 27th, 2009 Part I: The best and the worst of the week


New Perspective – Panic At The Disco
Now Ryan Ross and Jon Walker have left the band I was expecting the worse. I Like Panic a whole lot and “Pretty Odd” more than their break through “Fever” album and it sure seems to me now I am gonna have two lousy bands instead of one great one. However, “New Perspective” suggest the the experimental psychedelic Beatle pop of “Nine In The Aftertoon” has been replaced with a more power pop bent with cool harmonies on the back up track and Brendon Urie sounding very much like Brendon Urie with a highly polished finish and an ultra ultra song melody that bleeds from the chorus to the verse before breaking for a harmonised segue and a cheeky line “Can you fast forward to go down on me…”. It’s like Macca without Lennon or Holsapple without Stamey. Good, hooklined power pop. Single Of the Week
Dear God (Sincerely M.O.F.) – Monsters Of Folks
So it is Yim Yames turn (as he asininely dubs himself with MOF). I like Yim’s vocals so much, that Mayfieldy falsetto, I forgive him much and though the song is a bland disappointment I would not rag on it if it was not for the embarrassing lyric. I think they have given Conor, M. Ward and Jim a verse each to address the Big G directly and forgot Professor Higgins cardinal rule: “You’ll get much further with the Almighty if you don’t offend his ears.” Here is my God comparison. First Los Compesinos addressing him: “You don’t have to worry about us, we can look after ourselves, we have learnt not to rely on you or anyone else.” Now MOF: “Dear God I’ve been trying to reach you (…) I’ve been thinking about, I’ve been worrying about, why do we suffer?” Interesting sentiment… if you’re twelve years old. Here is the Iman God axiom: If You have absolutely nothing to say about the subject shut the fuck up. Worst Single Of the Week.
