Tiny Animals “Sweet Sweetness”

September 13, 2009

It’s a classic power pop album. Thoughts of Duvall come to mind when I hear songs like “Useless.” This whole album is trapped in 2003, really, but that’s OK. It was a good time for this genre.
“Goodbye July” has guitar similar to “My Hero” by Foo Fighters. The song itself is fine. I think Dashboard Confessional had thoughts of going in this direction before selling out. Glad to see Tiny Animals pick up the slack.
The best song on the album is “I’d Give It All Away.” It could pass for a Remy Zero classic from the late ’90s. The guitars are just fuzzy enough.
“Scarlet” is also an upbeat number. You can’t help but smile when this one emerges from the speakers. “Is This the Last Time?” is a Better Than Ezra ripoff, and I mean that in the kindest way possible. It’s bliss. Possible song of the year, right here.
“Answer Me” also has all the right components. This album really grows on you the more you listen to it. You just can’t go wrong.
