Eugene Edwards - My Favorite Revolution Review
by Zane Ewton

.
Eugene Edwards wears his influences directly on his sleeve. His voice bears resemblance to Elvis Costello, but the rest of his sound is a grab bag of styles that range from 1950's pop guitar groups to country to Weezer. That may not be a far stretch from one extreme to another but it does give Edwards's songs an almost timeless feel; they could fit into any decade comfortably.

My Favorite Revolution is an incredibly glossy and accomplished album. Each song is an effective 3 minute chunk of catchy pop songwriting. The record is so upbeat that you might start to choke on the pure saccharine of its contents. While Edwards's lyrics can be juvenile at times, at least he is not whining and complaining. In fact it is refreshing to hear such an optimistic record delivered by a rock band.

If My Favorite Revolution suffers from anything it is that each song is good but none of them are really great. While you may enjoy the record while it's playing, the second you turn it off you will forget the whole thing. Like a big piece of candy, it's sweet in your mouth but when you get hungry you will want something with more substance.
