AutoVaughn - Space Review
by Ashleigh Hill
I'm Tired of the 80's
AutoVaughn no doubt fooled everyone in their hometown of Nashville, TN, coming out with the quintessential-eighties-mix-tape inspired Space, complete with plenty of reverb, telephone-vocals, and electric guitar solos. By, "fooled" I mean, they don't sound like most Tennessee-formed pop bands, however, that doesn't necessarily earn them any credit. The catchy opening "One More Time" bleeds safely into "Stay Another Night" with its Brit-Pop back-up vocals and clear electric guitar. Together, the two of them melt into the next eight songs, which happen to be the rest of Space.
The album's highlight resides exclusively in "Rock Your Body", which is surrounded by nine other soupy formless collaborations varied only by a few guitar chords and varied time signatures.
Fans of Duran Duran or The Killers will probably enjoy this album, and everybody else will tap their feet and eventually check to see why the CD's been stuck on the same song for ten tracks. In fact AutoVaughn sums Space up quite nicely with the "Rock Your Body" lyric; "We don't call shots/ but we've all tried."
