Capital Sons Review
By Gary Schwind

.
In the lead track, "Miss Understood," Capital Sons greet you with elements similar to other Minneapolis artists. The catchy pop hooks and harmony vocals are reminiscent of Sugar and the guitar brings Paul Westerberg to mind. The best example of the guitar work on this album is the solo on "Leaving Town." The vocals, particularly in "On Your Side" remind me of Vitalogy-era Eddie Vedder.

This is a tight band. The rhythms are solid, the guitar work is good and catchy and the vocals are pretty well done. If you sense a "but" approaching, you're correct. I wouldn't say there is anything wrong with this album, but let me put it this way. This seven-song CD is like a small bowl of your favorite ice cream. It's enjoyable but:
a. it's done too quickly and
b. it's not really enough to satisfy.

That being said, Capital Sons close the CD with what is probably the best song, leaving you to want a little more, just like with the ice cream. "Paint this Town" kicks off with a riff that sounds like "I Fought the Law (and the Law Won)" and sustains good energy throughout the brief song. The rhythm section is at its most prominent in this song and really, it brings the CD to a good close.
