Artist discography


Four years ago when Rooney debuted they were compared to bands like Weezer and got a little hype thanks to O.C. For me that album was just another album and it didn’t stay in mind for such a long time. This – their follow up album – certainly will. It’s a fantastic development in the sound compared to the debut. On this album they’re looking more into the huge 70’s sound a’la ELO, Styx, Queen and New England mixed with a very cool modern powerpop twist a’la Jellyfish, The Greys, Mika and Bleu. (You can even hear traces of It Bites and The Cars here and there) All spiced with ultra catchy refrains and a great production signed by the maestro - John Fields. You can blame them to be too polished etc, but hey, they’re not out there to play Tom Waits covers. They’re out there to deliver smash hits and to enjoy the public and they sure have succeeded cause this is one of the catchiest albums the year 2007.
