Album Review
Eric K!
Reviewed 2003-08-20
The Marlboro Chorus's _Good Luck_ is noteworthy for its unashamed loved for unpretentious
pop music. This album is essentially a solo roject of B. Patric, recorded in his basement in
Davenport, Iowa (I'm from the Midwest and I don't now where that is). I hear a bouncey, shambolic Beatles fronted by an early period (and falsetto-inclined) David Bowie. There are some really nice vocal harmonies and great interplay between nstruments. The lyrics and arrangements are dumb
in an appealingly innocent sort of way. The laying here is pretty sloppy and the end-results can be quite disjointed even to this Big Star _Sister Lovers_ devotee. Still a lot of fun!

Stand-out tracks: 2, 5, 7, 8

1. Acoustic driven, catchy/dumb, upbeat
2. More intense, nice interplay between sloppy drums, acoustic and electric guitars, wonderfully goofy background vocals. Do I hear "Rebel, Rebel"?
3. FCC! Piano-driven ballad, slightly off sensitive vocals progresses to Bowie-esque glam
4. disjointed but not in a good way
5. breathey vocals over an acoustic groove, weird slide(?) guitar that souds like a kazoo
6. starts with hard-to-heat falsetto over acoustic guitar, rocks more at end
7. bouncey, really dumb, midtempo, maybe Sgt. epper's-era Beatles fronted by David Bowie
8. great catchy pop song! manic glammy falsetto vocals, simple insistent bass
9. throaty vocals, weird jerky drums, spacious guitar part
10. nice song that reminds me way too much of one of the songs on Sebadoh's _Bakesale_.
