Performers SHERWOOD

Not yet rated | write a review
Though Sherwood was originally lumped in with pop-punk-leaning emo bands such as Alkaline Trio and Fall Out Boy, the group's music always drew more from straight-ahead power pop than did that of its contemporaries. QU finds the California quartet fully embracing this aspect of its sound; the album is replete with multi-tracked vocal harmonies, catchy, McCartney-esque melodies, and a radio-ready good-time vibe. The disc's opener, "Shelter," begins with a lush a capella section straight out of the Queen production manual, while "Not Gonna Love" matches a peppy `80s drum beat with tinkling steel drums. While there are several bits of the unit's old sound sprinkled throughout, QU definitively marks Sherwood's transition from fairly standard issue emo band to song-driven practioners of energetic pop.
