CD Review
The Vague
by Keavin Wiggins


Artist: The Vague
Title: The Vague Demos

I'll Carry on
You're My Star
So Alone
In My Room
Mr. Two Face

Since I only have a demo of some songs from the upcoming Vague album, I call this a Quick and Dirty Review. 

First off you may have noticed that I love harmonies, and The Vague delivers!. The first track  I heard 94 made me a ready fan, it has all the proper ingredients for a great Power Pop band. Harmonies, strong guitars, great melody, killer vocals, and a rock solid rhythm section.  With a touch of Posies, and a vague stones feel this song would be a great single for the band. 

The second track I'll Carry on starts with some great rhythm guitars. with nice and subtle lead blended in, the vocals appear and complete the overall feel of the song, Vocalist Chuck Oney is hard to nail down in comparison to other singers, at times his vocals bring visions of the Posies, other time Elvis Costello, and yet other such as at moments of this song reminded me of Morissey or the Cure. Scott Carr and Chucks guitar riffs are as solid you could possibly want, and Kyle Virgin's never misses a drum beat. Another Ohio band The Szuters cop a similar feel, and like the Szuters The Vague manage to create niche that is so dearly missing in Popular music today.

You're a Star, is another favorite on this album, it has a real Mod feel to it, I can just picture the go go dancers on stage during a live performance of this song. 

The short and sweet of it is, if you dig Power Pop or Alternapop you MUST buy The Vague's debut when it is released you will not be disappointed.   We expect big things from these guys in the future.
