CD REVIEW: The Mood – “What’s on the Surface and What’s Underneath”
By Stacey Board - 04/27/2004 - 05:10 PM EDT

Artist: The Mood
Album: “What’s on the Surface and What’s Underneath”
CD Review: This CD is like perfect lemonade. It's refreshing and sweet and sour in just the right amounts. If you are a Remy Zero fan or ever wanted Rufus Wainright to add some layered guitars to his songs, this is a CD you will love.

This is martini holding alternative pop. It is sophisticated and laden with intelligent melodies, lyrics and symbolism. The layered vocals are wonderful as are all the musicians’ performances. It's edgy and sweet and has a little Jon Brion pop sensibility to it. If Burt Bacharach ever partied with Curt Cobain and they wrote together, it might sound something like this.

I highly recommend this CD to fans of pop with a twist of lemon.
