CD REVIEW: Blush 66 - Domecstasy
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Band: Blush 66
Genre: Blues/Rock
CD Review:
The atmospheric pop of Blush 66 leads the listener into modern Madonna territory with a younger Madonna vocal in the forefront thru Laura Jean’s confident dubs and overdubs. And don’t forget the other half of the partnership, Eddie Plank, who gives the electronic texture to every individual song dancing here. Drums, bass and guitar complete the 5-person energy, used to the best excitement in ‘Leave You Down’, grooving into the night-club circuit without resorting to the annoying busy properties of remix music. ‘I believe he will try to make you better. All the time, all the time, you’re always falling for whatever / Is it words, is it words that you want to hear now?’ Anthony Plank’s guitar is especially gratifying here, until it finally zones off after radio airplay length.

5 songs from a blue rock group that really pulls out the shadows from popular music and shows you that it’s easy to dance in the shades of gray. ‘After All This Time’ has that strange combo of being able to lull and energize at the same time. However that’s accomplished, if only there were more of this romantic mood around. Like having rain without getting wet, you want it. It’s a legal drug, pulling you into the cloud, screw the silver lining.
