I was late to the party on these guys.
Guitar World and Guitar For The Practicing Musician had guitar tabs of the songs “Far Behind”, You”, “Cover Me” and “Change”. And I learned em without listening to the song and I liked what I heard.
I read the reviews in the U.S mags who gave it good reviews and how they have become Madonna’s darlings as their label Maverick Records is owned/run by Madonna and her team. The band basically put Maverick Records on the map as they were the first successful act on the label which signed Deftones and Alanis Morissette later.
Peter Klett on guitars really knows how to decorate a song with his little melodic riffs and licks. Just listen to “Far Behind” and how he takes a stock standard chord progression of G, Em, C, D (like “Stand By Me”) and really decorates it with diads, arpeggios, hammer ons/pull offs and single note licks to make it sound unique.
This is their third album.
One song, “Sometimes” defines this album for me. It’s that good, I had it on repeat consistently.
I’ve written about the song before.
