Isn´t Obama the right man to save America? Is Michael Behm the one? Well, if music is the answer, then Michael Behm is halfway there with his new album "Saving America". This is really smart powerpop for the music lovers that demand something more than simple bubblegum pop choruses, Behm´s songs goes deeper than that. I recently discovered this guy on his 2005 album "Love songs for the emotionally impaired" and knew his new album would be something extra, I have listened to "Saving America" quite a lot lately and must say it´s even better than the previous record. The half instrumental "Underground Epic" is classic rock at it´s best and the piano based "Lincoln" would make John Lennon proud. "If I had a life" bring thoughts to Bleu and songs like "Ticket to heaven" and "If I could learn to fly" could´ve been featured on Tal Bachman´s excellent 1999 album. The title track "Saving America" takes the listener back to the heydays of E.L.O, lovely! Well, he might not save America but he could easily save your day!
