Overview

Dedicated to friends killed in a drunk-driving accident, this album is honest, poignant, and at times quite pop-oriented. "Glass Houses" is perhaps the best of the lot, a hip-hop/trip-hop beat fuelling the sweet harmonies. Laced with British influences, lead singer Robb Benson joyously reformats Beatles-era riffs over deep lyrical portraits of things sadly left unsaid. "Goodbye my friends/I hope I get the chance to know you again," he sings in "JD's Song." There are a few gaffes, though, notably "Stretch," a confusingly structured song where vocals and music don't quite mesh cohesively. The facetiousness of "A Dear John Letter" characterizes much of the record -- generally intelligent enough to overcome some flaws.
