CHANCE JONES

The Incident at Primrose and West

2009-11-09

For the first time (in four albums), Chance Jones, the band, has recorded an album as a band and as a vehicle for the band as opposed to previous albums which were geared toward performance by Chance Jones (Joshua Burge) himself. I get the impression that this release is by and for the band from beginning to end. There is a general sense of cohesiveness here. Fun, engaging lyrics are surrounded by upbeat pop-rock instrumentation throughout. Even the slower songs refuse to plod along as one might expect them to and they fit quite nicely, thank-you very much. This is one of the better and more interesting local rock releases this year.
