...IMO, is The Moffats. Call me crazy, laugh in my face, and ridicule me all you want, but the fact remains that their latest album "Submodalities" is nothing short of a pop/rock masterpiece to me. The songs are all totally hook-laden and the music has that power-pop edge. I could imagine, say, Bryan Adams, having written and/or recorded virtually any song from this album. I think people have a hard time looking past their ages (they're four brothers, all in their teens), but they have more in common with the likes of Nelson than they do with boy bands, IMO. And if it matters, they don't look anything like a boy band either, in that the guys happen to be the musicians in the band too (one plays drums, one plays bass, one plays keys, and the other plays guitar). Their first album is fantastic too, but the songs seem a little simpler and for that reason, I find that I do tire of it a little after repeated play. Anyways, if you haven't given this band a fair shake and you enjoy the power-pop thing, you might wanna check out either (or both) of their two albums.
