REVIEWS OF THE ALBUM...
Milwaukee Shepherd-Express (July 2006)
The â90s were a flashy time for music: Grunge superstars created an arty alternative for hard-rockers, eclectic pioneers such as Beck created modern music collages, and below-the-radar indie-rockers honed hip, cutting-edge sounds in preparation for the millennium. Amid all these heavily hyped, new music styles, a movement of bands like the Counting Crows and the Wallflowers eschewed the latest trends and dedicated themselves to recording songs in the spirit of traditional American rock and pop.
Milwaukeeâs Thomas Lane follows in the footsteps of those gimmick-free groups, as well as bands like Guster and Matchbox 20, pop-rockers whose conventional sound secured an ample audience even after the bottom fell out from alternative rock. Their debut album is heavy on big, euphoric hooks and sincere, sentimental lyrics, but free of any counter-culture pretenses or overtly contemporary influences. All their songs could have been recorded any time over the past 15 years, and many of them are so breezy and immediately infectious theyâd fit right in on commercial radio. Itâs no wonder the Wisconsin Area Music Awards crowned Thomas Lane Best New Artist recently: Youâd never guess such a slick, expertly crafted album was recorded by a band that formed just a year ago.

Itâs hard to find any information on this band, like why are they called Thomas Lane when itâs not the name of a guy in the bandâis it a street? I suppose it doesnât really matter. Itâs the music that countsâand the music is very good.
The songs here are melodic, hook-heavy, with catchy lyrics and lush harmonies, all the right ingredients for a good pop-rock recording. The first song, âCasual Indifference,â starts starkly, and then bursts into a full band song, grabbing your attention and holding it. The band slows it down just a bit with the heartfelt balladry in âBoston Song,â âAll But You,â and âFor Days.â The high-energy musical barrage continues with âStepaway,â âGirl Next Door,â and âSky to Blue.â
This CD is a terrific addition to any pop-rock collection.
