Sound

by: The Mighty Lemon Drops

This album, which came out in late 1991, is not noticeably different from any other release by the Mighty Lemon Drops, save the songs are more uniformly upbeat and the songwriting is a tad weaker. "My Shadow Girl" starts off as a promising piece of psychedelia before the drums kick in, making the song indistinguishable from the rest. "You Don't Appreciate Anything" is probably the best thing here, or at least the most reminiscent of the time when comparing the Mighty Lemon Drops to Echo & the Bunnymen seemed legitimate. All in all, Sound is a reminder of how most alternative rock, in the months before Nirvana broke, was just as boring and predictable as anything in the mainstream. ~ Brian Downing
