Overview

Borrowing from every pop band from the Beatles to Oasis, Swirl 360 may be a little hard to pin down, but that's part of the reason why their debut album, Ask Anybody, is so enjoyable. Favoring the sweet pop of McCartney over Lennon's brittle rock & roll, Swirl 360 augment that melody with crackling modern rock production. If they get a little too slick -- and let's face it, anyone who collaborates with Desmond Child is bound to get a little slick -- they make up for it with sharp collaborations with Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne) and Ken Stringfellow (Posies), a crisp attack, and uncluttered arrangements. Denny and Kenny Scott, the twin masterminds behind the band, still need to find their own voice, but Ask Anybody remains a cheerful, pleasing debut.
