I JUST NEED SOMEONE TO TELL ME HOW TALL I AM

Review: Baby Sue

Very smooth middle-of-the-road pop music with lots and lots of studio polish. Although you might swear that Minibar is an American band (we would've sworn it on the goddamn Bible), they are not. This is a British band with virtually no audible signs of the fact. Also intriguing is the fact Road Movies is this band's debut CD. The eleven songs on this album are all very mature and well written. T Bone Burnett produced these tracks, so that may explain why they have such a smooth and fat sound. The band's vocals are so perfect that they almost sound computer generated (particularly on the title track). This band is really, REALLY good at what they do. The only slight problem that they may encounter in their career is that there are so many bands playing soft, smooth, super-polished pop at the moment. Every week, we probably receive anywhere from 50 to 100 CDs from bands who sound almost exactly like Minibar. No matter. When you're good you're good. And these folks really are talented and entertaining. Another plus for this album is that the very last track "So Long Soho" is rather abstract and has a depressing feel. How many smooth pop bands end their album like THAT? (Rating: 4)
