Not Changing
 
Not Changing Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $13.00
Artist: Jim Basnight
 
 
Quantity:
 

Jim Basnight is a Northwest perennial, best known for his new wavy combo The Moberlys, but also a figure in such outfits as The Meyce, The Rockinghams, and as a solo act.   “Not Changing” is his first album in seven years.  “Unsurprisingly, there’s plenty of Basnight’s trademark power pop, but the album’s also something of a musical buffet.  ‘Code to Live By’ is a laid-back, contemplative toe tapper.  The uptempo ‘Never Get Lost’ might make you think you’re back in the early 1980s (The Raspberries come to mind). ‘Second Street’ sinks the hook in deep from the very beginning.  You can also detect some classic influences, like on ‘Big Bang’, a song that has some of the bawling, drawling blues of the Rolling Stones (there’s also a Jagger-esque touch to the vocals in “Best Love In The World’).  Things turn serious in the mournful ‘Suicide Evening’ and ‘Kurt Cobain,’ with Jim musing about singing ‘a pretty tune’ with the grunge icon (and also adding a touch of fuzz guitar).” – NorthwestMusicScene.net  “’Code to Live By’ is a testament to his longevity with a terrific solo guitar break. The title track is a wistful look back on his career, confident that he’s made the right choices as he states ‘with this guitar, you can dig for gold, but can you dig a soul from a grave?’ He returns to the theme of death with the somber ‘Suicide Evening,’ and ‘Kurt Cobain.’  While there are several quieter tracks, Jim shines when he reaches into that classic blues-rocker style similar to The Rolling Stones on ‘Big Bang’ and ‘Best Lover In The World.’ The rollicking ‘Making Love for a Living’ is a catchy tune sure to get you moving and ‘Never Get Lost’ is a power pop gem. More highlights include ‘Second Street,’ ‘You Never Cease To Amaze Me’ and the radio-friendly finale ‘Living The Way I Want.’ This is a celebration of a man comfortable doing what he loves. So, why change such a good thing?  Highly Recommended.” – Powerpopaholic.com  EXCELLENT!!
