Jason Dove - Pronto Review

by Gary Schwind

.
Jason leads the album off with a mellow instrumental called "Landing a Chopper" featuring guitar and some trippy organ sounds. "Landing a Space Shuttle" might be a better name for this song but it's a solid beginning. He follows that up with a song called "Make it with You" in which he wonders where the college girls go. It is a good, very short song.

Vocally, Jason Dove reminds me a lot of Casaverde. Musically, Dove doesn't really remind me of anyone else. Not in the sense that his sound is so unique, he doesn't sound like anyone else, but rather in the sense that he sounds like so many other bands, it's really hard to distinguish who he sounds like. There is a bit of Bowie in these songs with the spacey organ.

This album comprises mostly very mellow songs, including "The Saddest Song in the World, Ever." I don't quite know what to make of this song. I don't know that it's the saddest song in the world ever and I don't know if it works as a sort of "joke that started the whole world crying." Something tells me it's the latter, but I don't know that for certain.

"Theme" and "Crisis Mountain" are two exceptions to the mellow mood of the album. Both of these songs sound like they came from a "So you wanna play classic rock" instructional video.

The songs on this album are pretty well done. Jason Dove, Michael Griffeth and Brett Jones display some solid chops. Unfortunately, none of these songs are terribly memorable. But I think if Jason Dove worked to create a more distinctive sound, he'd really be on to something.
