Having weathered the demise of its most recent American label, Sloan forges on, battered but unbroken and still delivering perfect pop records; Navy Blues
might just be the band's best yet, with the sheer consistency of its
infectious melodies, clever lyrics, and exuberant performances pushing
the group toward new creative peaks. Moving away from the ornately Beatlesesque production of the previous One Chord to Another, the sound on Navy Blues is more down and dirty, indicating a heavy Big Star
influence; a track like "Iggy & Angus" certainly isn't as raw as
the homages implicit in its title would suggest, but its fuzzed-out
guitars and lumbering drums are nevertheless emblematic of the sonic
shifts that characterize the entire record.
Truth be told, there's not a
weak track here, but "C'mon C'mon (We're Gonna Get It Started)," "Keep
On Thinkin,'" "Chester the Molester," and "I Wanna Thank You" all go
above and beyond the call of duty, each undeniably catchy and instantly
Navy Blues and ''One chord to another'' are my favourite albums by Sloan and i will post ''One chord...'' also in the next days.When there is more interesting in Sloan let me know and i can post more of the band.
