Smitten Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $12.00
Artist: The Simple Carnival
Seven years in the making, Jeff Boller is back with “Smitten”, eleven tracks of meticulously-crafted power pop bliss. It’s as if Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren, Burt Bacharach, and The Beach Boys decided to lock themselves in a recording studio for the better part of a decade to see what would happen. “Like the last album ‘Girls Aliens Food’, ‘Smitten’ is heavy on melody and simple romantic charm - a meticulously crafted group of love songs similar to early Todd Rundgren. The title track is a romantic soft pop gem perfect for a slow dance, then ‘Lunch For Dinner’ ups the tempo and sophistication with layered harmonies in the chorus. It’s easy to dismiss the soft and simple ‘Everything That Grownups Know,’ until you listen to the lyrics about anxiety and shyness. In fact the upbeat pop of ‘Go Away I Like You Too Much’ is rare amongst the self-depreciating tracks ‘Geek Like Me’ and disco-lite ‘Kiss Her You Dummy.’ While not as immediate as ‘GAF’, it still has enough honest emotion and craftsmanship to make this record a highly recommended one.” – PowerPopaholic.com “A timeless, understated gem from an undiscovered pop savant.” – Uncut Magazine “Boller crafts great songs and then has the techno-know-how to work magic on them in his studio. And man oh man…what a voice. Pop fans will go nuts over the harmonies here. This record is bursting at the seams with superb melodies and creative arrangements…eleven tracks of pure pop perfection. Highly recommended. TOP PICK.” – babysue.com “A Nilsson for the modern generation.” – Russell’s Reviews “Catchy, sweet, tender, quirky, and sung with unbelievable charm.” – Louis Philippe GREAT!!
