JohanTHXJHNNote: This is the Dutch band’s third album, but first since 2001.
Sound: Their floating falsettos make for some lush and lovely pop, while a few mean riffs, driving rhythms and dark chords give Johan an indie rock edge.
Playlist Partners: Travis, R.E.M., Matthew Sweet
Heavy Rotation tracks:Reader Takes a Stand”; “Oceans
Medium Rotation tracks:Coming In from the Cold”; “When I’m On My Own”; “Out of Reach”; “She’s Got a Way With Men
Explicit Lyrics*: “Reader Takes A Stand”
Recommended: If you like a rock album that’s soothing and straightforward, but has enough sharp songwriting and mystery to engage you.
Grade: B+

* Noting of explicit lyrics is for the benefit of radio music directors or anyone else that needs/wants to keep their music FCC-friendly.
