The Chromium Heart “Chrome”

This band has nothing to do with Topps or Bowman Chrome, which is a shame, but it is still a CD worth collecting. “Bricks” is the first track and a little faster than some of those Death Cab for Cutie classics. The art of inoffensive indie pop rock has been perfected.
I get a good feeling listening to “This Feeling,” a slower number that must be dreadful live. Although the vocals don’t sound like it, musically it is reminiscent of famous Oasis ballads. “Rusty Veins” bridges the gap of those two songs, and really the 1997-2006 era is well-represented on the record throughout. The last track is “We Sail.” It’s another dragger, but the country hints give it a better sound.
