This was a great album that came out a month or two ago, and I felt it deserved a review. The Honeydogs are lead by the amazing Adam Levy, who is crafting better songs everyday. One of the first reviews here at Powerpopaholic was “10,000 Years” – the last Honeydogs album. Overall the tone of the new album is a little less thematic than the last, but they haven’t lost any of the craft and skill that made it successful. On “Amygdala” we are treated to smart lyrics, and wonderful melodies. “Rattling My Tin Cup” is a great tune that has a hook that won’t let go of you. “Devil’s Advocate” is another keeper here, with those great ringing guitars. There are more introspective tunes on this one, “Heads or Tails” being a good example. The XTC and Beatles refererences are gone. I saw this album on a few “best of” year end lists. I feel The Honeydogs have completely matured here, and I expect continued greatness from them. Pick this album up from Not Lame or Amazon.com. if you never heard the last album, you can hear it streaming on their site! This an excellent example of the Honeydogs power pop style.
