Intangible - Elevate Review
by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
Intangible is fronted by Justin Wright, the son of '70s hit-maker Gary Wright ("Dream Weaver"). Gary doesn't play on Elevate; he is credited only as "executive producer." That would normally mean that he has invested money in the effort. And even though there is nothing here that sounds even remotely like his dad's work, Justin has no doubt studied pop's songwriting process. Not to mention his exposure at a formative age to some of dad's heavyweight pals, including George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Mick Jones, Stephen Stills, Peter Frampton and Jon Anderson. So you would figure the kid knows how to craft a hit single, and Wright delivers with Elevate's lead-off track, "Lean." The song has a super-sweet chorus that kicks in about forty seconds into the tune that provides an irresistible hook. Wright knows it too, so he hurries a verse and a bridge out of the way so the song can milk the chorus repeatedly until fade out. The rest of the album, though, is pretty much forgettable as Wright's arrangement teeters between a Before Braille-like emo and a grunge sound that foregoes the harmony vocal that makes "Lean" such a sparkler. Some may find that this one grows on them but I have a feeling that it'll be one-and-gone for most listeners.
