Miggs - Insomnia Review
by Kevin Wierzbicki

Miggs is a four piece centering on their namesake; singer/guitarist Don Miggs. Miggs writes a pretty good ballad and the band revs up the power when they need to, creating a sort of Richard Marx-like groove that sounds especially good on "Perfect." Miggs' heart is a-twitter throughout the album, sometimes completely buzzed on love and other times begging for a last chance compromise. Guitarist John Carta puts a nasty fuzz effect to work on "St. Rita" that gives the whole band a chance to harden up and rock out; later in the song Carta pulls off a screeching solo that blends into the song's outro, eventually ending cold, leaving you hanging with your air guitar still flailing. The music is more layered and dense on "It's Over;" perhaps representing the piling-on of emotion that comes with a break-up. The sure-fire hit here is called "Options," where the boys put everything together for a short, punchy piece of power pop with an irresistible vocal hook. Already a good songwriter, Don Miggs is one to watch as his craft matures with future efforts.
