The Streets, The Sounds, and The Love (Eyeball Records)(CD)
If grunge was the anthem for the kids in the 90's, New Atlantic might just be the grunge of the Ipod Generation. This New Jersey quintet kicks out sparkling clean, highly polished rock like I throw back shots of whiskey. From start to finish, "The Streets, The Sounds, and The Love" delivers flawless songwriting, catchy vocals, and addictive harmonies.
New Atlantic know how to put the "ooo's" and "aaah's" in all the right places - so much so I'd venture to guess these kids spend every waking moment with a bottle of pledge and a copy of their album. That's really the only complaint I can register - this record is just too good. Either these kids have a knack of dishing out the kind of pop music even your mom might like to download - or they've got a crack team of producers that graduated the top of their class at Berklee. Either way, New Atlantic know how to tug at the eardrums - if they keep at it you'll probably be seeing hip looking silhouettes dancing around to "The Streets, The Sounds, and The Love" sooner than you think.
