Garageland is a classic pop
ock band, pure and simple, and the excellent Scorpio Righting proves it beyond a reasonable doubt. Evocative of the Kinks, Small Faces, Pavement, Big Star, and the Replacements in their ragged halcyon heyday, Garageland excels at the three-minute opera, packing melody, harmony, and emotion aplenty into a simple intro-verse-chorus-bridge format. Be it social commentary ("Superstars"), love imperiled ("Life Is So Sweet"), or romantic fantasy gone awry ("High Way"), this versatile quartet renders their musings with a footloose and fancy-free veneer via intuitive guitar counterpoint, breezy vocals, and a firm backbeat. Enjoyable and spirited, Scorpio Righting is a cohesive mixed bag of pop

Well, I could sit here and write a very long winded review, but I won't. What I will tell you is that if you're a fan of rock (especially indie stuff), this is a very, very good album. I will also tell you to start training your in-the-shower voice because you will most likely be singing along with this CD all day long, so you'll want to be as prepared as possible (I reccomend practicing singing in front of your pets, they're a good gauge of talent). And just so I don't sound too vague, I highly recommend the track, "Who The Hell Do You Think You Are?", you'll be hooked from the opening guitar lick to the very last note. "Carry Me South" is a song to put on when driving in your car near the beach with the top down, make sure you have your girlfriend in the next seat (and if you don't have any of those things, some sand, a fan, and a printed out face taped to the chair next to you will do).
