I JUST NEED SOMEONE TO TELL ME HOW TALL I AM

Review: Drum! Magazine

MUSIC:

Minibar knocked the socks off those lucky enough to hear their 2001 debut, Road Movies, with their youthful mastery of the pop song. With Radar, the England- to-L.A. transplants' alt-country twang recedes into the background, replaced by purer pop that brings them further into their own.

DRUMMING:

Malcolm Cross sounds smarter than ever, providing a perfect backup for the aching vocals and gorgeous guitars that lead the CD. On the opening track, "It Is What It Is," Cross' snare moves the song verses with a sharp, bouncing snap before falling into a deep pocket for the chorus. The gentle acoustic strum that starts "Unstoppable" benefits from his ability to listen, as quiet hi-hats and bass drum quickly trade places with a big beat in the middle. Cross' recent stints with the Wallflowers confirms his growing reputation.

VERDICT:

The sound of a band establishing itself as the real deal.
