Spent a good deal of time today with the upcoming Broadway Calls release, Good Views, Bad News. It doesn't come out until August 18th, but for those of you who (like me) loved the self-titled record, their split with Teenage Bottlerocket and the first EP... this is a worthy adversary that might be one of the big sleeper releases of 2009. More polished with a bigger budget in control, but it doesn't keep this album from shining.
Lots of good energy, big hooks and an electricity that flows into your entire system. I didn't expect this to top the self-titled disc, but it might be able to. Really solid from start to finish, and doesn't overstay its welcome (only 34 minutes long).
