The Genuine Fakes Are the Real McCoy
I must confess that I had not been aware of an Extended Play Vol 2 from The Genuine Fakes. I have no idea if 3 picks up where 2 left off. However, I know genuinely good power pop when I hear it. And The Genuine Fakes’ Extended Play Vol. 3 is the real deal.
This four track mini album starts out with the infectiously good “Two Fine Lovers”. The Beatlesque interlude two minutes into the song make for a wonderful touch. And the vocal calisthenics are noteworthy.
The uptempo “Receiver” is another catchy number and again, the bands’ vocal prowess is staggering. Although things slow down on the more contemplative “Gigatonne”, the crunchy guitars and dynamic harmonies make for outstanding listening.
The closing track, “We’re All We Need” is as engaging as any however, the track is over 8 minutes long. They would have served the song better had they shaved about 2:30 off.
