I'm Never Gonna Give It Away

The Broken WestAfter reading countless positive reviews online, I picked up The Broken West's I Can't Go On I'll Go On this weekend. Upon first listen, I'm certainly not disappointed, but I'm also not smitten. It has undeniable great hooks and melodies (think the Beatley, power-poppy side of Wilco), but I think it's just going to be a slow burner from me. I'm sure after listens two and three I'll fall in love, but so far, it's a solid 3.5/5 stars and I'd recommend it for any straightforward power-pop fans.

Buy it from iTunes, Amazon, or Not Lame.

MP3: The Broken West - Down in the Valley (via)

UPDATE: Not surprisingly, after another half listen, this album is easily 4/5. Methinks this one will be too popping all through spring!
