Smash Mouth – Sunday, May 31
"We've got so many hits on this new record it's ridiculous" says Smash Mouth lead singer Steve Harwell. Harwell oughta know a thing or two about hit songs. His band has charted more hits than a World War || battleship. Smash Mouth, the band that's given you such memorable songs as "All-Star," "Walkin' on the Sun," "Then the Morning Comes," and "I'm a Believer," is back for more season-of-the-sun fun with their vibrant new CD "MAGIC".
"MAGIC" is a no-holds-barred party from start to finish. First-listen gems such as "Flippin' Out" and "Magic" jump out at you like a barrel full of monkeys. Both these songs also feature young super talent J. Dash. The dynamic 25-year old wunderkind was a long-time Smash Mouth fan when he was tapped to sprinkle a little "magic" on these tracks.
Produced by neophyte guitarist Mike Krompass (Nelly Furtado, David Archuleta), "MAGIC" also opens the curtain on a more mature Smash Mouth. On tracks like "Better With Time" and "Out of love," we hear just how much Steve Harwell's voice has developed from the rantin'-chantin' approach he favored on early Smash Mouth offerings. He's equally strong on "Future Ex Wife" (let me take you home/can't you see that I don't wanna be alone ). This heartbreaking-hilarious ode to doomed domestic bliss is also as catchy as they come.
Founding bassist Paul Delisle and long-time keyboardist Michael Klooster lay down their timetested, solid foundation on tracks such as "She's Into Me," and "Perfect Planet". Paul and Michael's uniquely thoughtful musical approach and spot-on arrangement sensibilities have been a mandatory trademark of the Smash Mouth sound.
Newcomers Mike Krompass and Randy Cooke both shine on tracks such as "The Game" where we find Cooke simultaneously bone-breaking and greasy-groovy. Krompass plays with the confident ease and finesse of a seasoned pro. Which he is. Hardcore Smash Mouth fans will be glad to hear the band hasn't forgotten it's roots on tracks such as "Perfect Planet" and "Future Ex-Wife". Smash Mouth is also gearing up for their beloved, annual summertime sojourn across America...coming to a venue near you!
