This Manhattan, Kansas, trio put the pratfall back in power pop, lacing their rollicking, punch-drunk tunes with over-the-top singing and super-sappy melodies. Recalling early Elvis Costello or the Replacements, Ultimate Fakebook charge at their musical mission with all the energy of a frat house on wheels. Guitarist/singer Bill McShane races from squealing falsetto to hoarse howl, while the band fumbles around him with good-natured glee. Songs such as the stop-start "Tell Me What You Want" and the buzz bomb "Soaked in Cinnamon" show a band that, while entirely derivative, have finely honed their craft with both professionalism and verve. And unlike more serious late-'90s power pop groups the Posies and Jellyfish, UF are entirely happy to make fools of themselves, asking "Are you ready to rock?" in one song and comparing love to jelly donuts in another. There's plenty to laugh at while you rock out to Ultimate Fakebook.
