Small Change Romeos - Long Way from Tomorrow 
By Gary Schwind

Long Way from Tomorrow opens with “Breaking Through,” a song with a solid bass line, horns and a guitar that sounds like it would fit just as well on Stevie Wonder’s Talking Book.  “Groovy” is probably the best way to describe this song.  It’s an excellent song to draw you in.  There is at least one other song (“Someday”) on this album that I would describe as groovy.

I don’t know who to compare this band to.  I guess that’s a good thing.  They’ve found their own sound and don’t really sound a lot like anyone.  They remind me most of Virginia Coalition, only Virginia Coalition shows a lot more musical influences on their album.  There are also shades of bands like Semisonic and Maroon 5.

There aren’t really a lot of standout songs on this album.  In addition to “Breaking Through” and “Someday,” the only other song that really caught my attention was “New England Girl.”  I think “New England Girl” is a great song about the kind of girl a lot of men dream of.  They sing about this girl as someone who’s good with a hammer, likes classic rock, can empty a bottle, and beat you at pool.  This is the gem of the album.  

Don’t get me wrong. Small Change Romeos are talented musicians.  The band formed in 1998 and you can tell that they have spent a lot of time playing together.  The songs are tight and well-crafted, but this album, aside from the aforementioned songs, just didn’t reach out and grab me.
