Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Big Head Todd and The Monsters

All The Love You Need

2008-03-17

Plenty of riffing guitars, groovy base, and driving beats on this album. Earnest rhythm and blues off the bat with the opener “Her Own Kinda Woman”, complete with bleating brass and hand claps for punch and punctuation. Grittier still is “Cashbox”, a song fit for blasting while doing some hard labor, peeling down a highway, or shooting some pool to. The songs which temper the album work nearly as well, especially the jangling title track with its soft piano touches, the funky “Ever Since Ya Pulled Me Under”, the pop jingle of “Spanish Highway” and the country western infused “Under A Silvery Moon.”- Michael Loffelman
