    Elf Pee's Mystery Disc

    Just a couple of initial comments (got the disc yesterday, thanks, FP). This music is feel-good melodic pop that sounds like something you'd hear on the soundtrack of a teen movie, those type of songs that play during the closing credits but never seem go much further than that. The guy has a voice that's pleasant and reminds me of someone else I can't put a finger on, but that's the problem- he's indistinquisable from many others in this genre. On the plus side, the compositions are consistently melodic throughout so I am interested in finding out who this is - he shows a lot of potential. I tried to do a search on All Music with a couple of song titles, but couldn't find a match. Rating - * * *

    My guess is that it's The Monkees.

    Finch, you continue to surprise me. Do you like this band? I've only given it one spin and it's not that I didn't like it, it's just that it was a little.... girly, even for me. It was pleasant enough and had some catchy tunes. But, it's not quite what I would expect from you. It is what I would expect to hear on the local Easy Rock station.

    I'll be giving it a few more spins, but I suspect that I'll tire of this one pretty quickly.

    For some reason, this disc struck a chord in me. I don't know why, but it catches my ears and I just want to play it over and over and over.

    Maybe cuz it only cost fitty cents? ;0)

    Appreciate the reviews.

    Good god, you LIKE this and you call the last disc I sent you turgid? This is really lactose intolerant Velveeta bloat corporate pop toons for suburban 14 year old girls, man!

    Is it the new "Baby's" album?

    I have a CD by the band "Human Radio" from the early 90s. They had a minor radio hit with "Me and Elvis" and the sound is similar, but a lot more "we KNOW it's saccarine, but we'll throw you a few loops" which this misery disc does not. Ditto the similarly poppy yet much better "The Samples".

    The other disc you sent me is a blast tho. So THANKS for that one. This one's a coaster.

    Well, I actually know who the artist is. How scary is that? I believe that there are clues to be had but that's another matter. I don't know if this will constitute my review but I can see how everyone came to their conclusions. I'm kind of torn down the middle. It seems a bit lite, something like a male version of Hoku. On the other hand I've made no secret about the fact that there is something about the two Hoku singles that I have that appeals to me so I know of what Finch boy speaks. I haven't had too much time to focus on this disc due to time constraints but of my first spin, the Hoku similarity was immediate and lasting. Of course she seems to do a lot of movie soundtrack songs...

    Thanks for the disceses Finchie.

    I figured this sounds like the Lightning Seeds, and there were a few people in here who liked 'em, so wtf.

    I only sent it to you, Troy (besides retaliation purposes ;0) cuz it's a one man band kinda thing, and I thought it might inspire you.

    See if I send anyone ANYTHING any more!!! *pout* ...Hey- who wants a copy of my Babys comp???

    Jim- feel free to reveal if you know who it is. I'm curious to find out if you really know.

    Dood, you got a copy of one of the tracks on the companion comp you sent along. The name's right there! Anyone paying attention can figure it out. The only potentially tricky thing is that the tracklist for the comp is messed up (intentional?). Still, given the fact that a distinctive track is immediately before the one in question it was pretty simple to figure out.

    To be honest, I kinda like it at first couple of listens. Thanks.
