Further Observations From A Jangly Music Fan

April, 2005

Killed By The Lights - by the Knockout Drops. Whoa! This disc has a little bit of everything, and it puts the rock back into the term pop/rock! I hear elements of the Sand Rubies, Ghost Of An American Airman, the Jayhawks and Soul Asylum in these guitar-driven tracks. The band infuses some nice ringing, chiming guitars in songs like "Hell Ride," "Rage Like The Sun" and "Caught In The Headlights." While so many contemporary bands are striving to emulate the Top Twenty "alternative rock" bands on MTV, these guys are the real deal. That alone is refreshing!
