Thee Headliners “Rain & Blood”

September 13, 2009

This would have sounded a lot better if it were still hot out. This does that Alannah Myles old-school rhythm and blues thing on tracks like “Howlin’ at the Moon.” The album does more than that though. “Sketch City” has a fun atmosphere with it, unlike that stupid restaurant on the moon. It does have great food, you know. “Double Dutch” is a classic rock ‘n’ roll number.
There’s an intermission, which I like. I hope they play this live in the middle of their sets too.
“Sourpuss” makes good use of keyboards and backing vocals. If you like extravagant late ’70s rock music, this track will do it for you. If Queen had made a song for the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, it would sound like this.
“Whatchagonnado?” will make alt country fans smile. This definitely has a mid-90s feel.
All in all, it’s a bunch of songs in random order for 40-year-olds, whose musical tastes have diversified over the years. So it’s one of those Kellogg’s Cereal Variety Packs.
