The Supers - Spklanng!

Appearing from the ashes of Fall Down Go Boom, the Supers have managed with their debut to far exceed what their predecessors did. Since forming the Supers, Maury LaFoy and Graham Powell (the members the bands have in common) are taking a slightly different pathway. Their debut CD, Spklanng!, was unofficially released in Canada in the summer of 1999. But now that it's being given a second chance, it should reach a much wider and appreciative audience. Musically, the Supers have a lot in common with some of the top bands in the genre, in that every song is a straightforward, catchy pop tune that gets better with every listen. There's not much to complain about - none of the 12 songs could be described as weak and there's a real hummability present. Spklanng! is a very, very good album.
