Man Of The Year
A New And Greater Tokyo
Bongo Beat/Tiny Beat records
Man of the Year are purveyors of classic pop in the best sense. Opener "Western Sun" is sweet without being cloying and catchy as hell. It whets the appetite for more of the same. "Lime Green" is reminiscent of Posies in their heyday, a wistful vocal framed by ringing guitars. "Mucho Macho" is a sarcastic tune with a frantic tempo. "A Different Cowboy" is a mysterious-sounding song. The sad vocal and dream poppy backing appeal greatly.
The group look sure to reach many pop fans with this record.
