Artist: exit Album: “scenes from next week” CD Review:
Exit has put together a very strong collection of pop songs played well and arranged perfectly. I really liked this CD a lot.
The collection as a whole reminds me of the sophisticated melodies of Ben Folds. They also have the humor and wit of the Bare Naked Ladies but a little less intensity. The arrangements have a light touch that lets the melody and song be the focus instead of any one player.
The main writer is Ryan McIntyre, but two of the eleven songs are collaborations with other members. Each of the songs is a lovely melody and an engaging rhythm. They also have enough melodic surprises to keep you interested. This is a CD that fans of well crafted pop will love.
