12 Songs, 46 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The Gin Blossoms sound has always centered on the urgent pleading heard in singer Robin Wilson’s voice. From the first bars of “Don’t Change for Me,” it’s apparent that “the voice” is going to suck in all listeners. The band’s jangle has always been timeless and it was perfect timing that snuck them to the top of the pop charts in the ‘90s. It was a great time for bands with solid songs and the Gin Blossoms have never wavered from that game plan. “I Don’t Want To Lose You Now” is an accomplished pop tune. The Rembrandts’ Danny Wilde takes an even more active role than on 2006’s Major Lodge Victory, becoming a virtual member of the band. He co-writes a handful of tunes, including the sassy “Miss Disarray,” the middle America highway rock of “Somewhere Tonight” and the flashy and pumped “I’m Ready.” Wilson’s tunes “Wave Bye Bye” and “Go Crybaby” ache with a yen for an earlier, happier time.
