POWER OF POP MUSIC ALBUM REVIEW: MAGIC EIGHT BALL – LAST OF THE OLD ROMANTICS

ALBUM REVIEW: MAGIC EIGHT BALL – LAST OF THE OLD ROMANTICS

Baz8ball

Inevitably, there is a mixed sense of resigned defiance amongst the obscure fraternity of rock n roll/powerpop community that is holding fast to the influences of 60s/70s classic pop-rock.

Thus, we can take the Last of the Old Romantics at face value as Magic Eight Ball – led by Englishman Baz Francis – delivers the kind of melodic rock reserved for fans of Cheap Trick, Big Star, Jellyfish and the bulk of the 90s pop underground.

Thus, hook-laden numbers like “What Happened in ’92’, “Come Get Your Kicks”, “Wait Here A Second” and the rest of this fine LP will assuage the deep frustration of true pop believers everywhere.

Highly recommended!
