David Surkamp, his wife Sara Surkamp, long time percussionist Mike Safron and a backing band is a completely different band from the one that most of us are familiar with from the release Pampered Menial. Yes, the do try to sound vintage but it's almost impossible for David Surkamp to hide that fact that he has aged and that his vocal range is not what it once has been.
I also miss prominent guitar and keyboard arrangements, which is probably because Bill Franco and Nick Schlueter sound merely as session musicians who have been hired in order to record this album.
Rarely do we hear any notable instrumental arrangements as most of the material is explicitly targeted towards enhancing David Surkamp's performance. The opening track Angeline felt like it was meant to remind me of Juliabut it lacked all the elements that made that classic composition and performance so great.
Most of the vocal arrangement lack melodic hooks that were present all throughout the band's 70's material, this includes their bootlegged version of Third. I also didn't appreciate the re-recorded version of I Oh Suzanna - Pavlovs Dog - (The Adventures Of) Echo & Boo (And Assorted Small Tails) You Still which once again reminded me of the fact that David Surkamp has regrettably passed his prime and the new almost acoustic arrangement of the song made it sound like something from Ready 2 Bang - Bad Azz - Personal Business (Clean Album) country record.
The album features a weird mini-suite, starting with We Walk Alone Foreverwhich just never lifts off the ground and I'm also a bit puzzled by the inclusion of the classic song Oh Susanna here titled Oh Suzanna. Avoid this record if you still haven't covered all of the band's superior 70's output.
So this is the first studio album by Pavlov's Dog in 20 long years And it's not what we expected. They try to play mostly acoustic soft rock with prog elements; or more specifically a prog section.
