...(No, not Van Halen! I mean Vertical Horizon)

Hi Peter & C.C.,

Thanks for the tip on VH, but this is one band that I already TOTALLY dig. "Everything You Want" is among my favorite albums of '99. I realize that tastes differ, and there are probably many who disagree with me, but I can say with complete sincerity that I don't think there's a track on the album that even comes close to being filler. Holy Moses this band knows how to write a catchy melody!!! Anyone out there who's into hook-laden power pop definitely owes it to themself to check this album out. To these ears, it sounds kind of like a modern, somewhat beefier version of R.E.M. The singer's voice actually reminds me very much of Michael Stipe's (that's the name of R.E.M.'s singer, isn't it?). As a matter of fact, I'm playing the album as I write this. These guys know their way around a ballad too. There are a couple of great ones on here. Yep, this album is pure class, IMO.

I don't know anything at all about other VH material, but if it exists and it's anything at all like "EYW" then I'm gonna have to check it out. As for the other artist you mentioned, Captain, I haven't heard of her. Any idea where I might be able to check out some soundbytes? Thanks. Take care.
Don
