If You Got Your Mind on a Revolution of the Soul

Gin Blossoms Major Lodge Victory
Can you believe it's been a decade since the last Gin Blossoms album?

Their "comeback" album Major Lodge Victory was released last week. If you're a big fan of this 90's power pop/adult alternative band, this will not disappoint. It's all there - the catchy hooks, the harmonies, the lyrics. The single Learning The Hard Way is strong, but to me is actually almost a cliche' Gin Blossoms song. The rest of the album is more sophisticated and mature, but still all Gin Blossoms.

Standout tracks for me include Come On Hard, Jet Black Sunrise and the awesome End of the World. I've listened to the album a couple of times now and I feel 10 years younger. A solid 4 star album.
