Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Wonderbelly

The Away Team Is Dead

2008-05-12

Wonderbelly's debut album makes use of a cadre of musicians over the course of its 14 tracks, but you're never really aware of their presence from song to song. This is a good thing, as being aware of too many cooks in the kitchen (when music is concerned) often causes disinterest in the listener. Musically, Wonderbelly play a mixture of indie rock and more laid back, traditional rock. It's not a bad album, by any means, but it when you finish listening to it, all the songs kind of blend together in your mind, and nothing really stands out. Still, it's enjoyable, when you're listening to it. And that's what counts. – Adam Goran
