Title: The Set-Up
Genre: Rock/Garage, Power Pop
Label: Musick Recordings- www.musickrecords.com
The Boss Martians continue to advance their career with outstanding garage rock music. It never ceases to amaze me how they can play such simplistic straightforward rock and continue to get stronger with each album. The Set-Up is their best yet, a real classic.
Evan Foster is an amazing vocalist, he sounds like Elvis Costello on steroids. His powerful voice and remarkable lead guitar takes this band to where many strive to go but never reach...where all aspirant musicians want to go.
When "I Wanna Be Your Addiction" kicks in with the first few chords, you know without a doubt that Foster is singing from the heart asking his lady love to let him be her drug of choice.
If you like non-stop barrel ass music that never puts on the brakes and blows your speakers out, this is the CD for you. You get the same formula throughout the entire album, no frills or surprises here, its straight attcha rock music with a simple format that works. It sure worked for me.
