Overview

That big head of Todd Park Mohr's is full of country and folk guitar licks (played on electric guitar à la '60s folk-rock) that give his music a relentlessly familiar feel, even if he does get his riffs secondhand from R.E.M. albums. Similarly, his husky voice and slightly slurred enunciation evoke generations of rock singers. So, his band's debut album, while pleasantly recognizable on first listen, also has trouble distinguishing itself. After a while, though, the subtlety of his lyrics becomes more apparent, and while the result isn't as impressive as, say, the Smiths, Mohr proves to have an individual world view beyond the chiming guitar chords. (Originally released in 1989 on the group's own Big Records label, Another Mayberry was reissued by Giant Records in 1994.)
