The Artist: Hell’s house band.
The Set in a Few Sentences: We may never know how this unholy union of James Iha (A Perfect Circle, The Smashing Pumpkins), Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) and Taylor Hanson (err, Hanson) came to be, but my money is on a Roswell-style CIA cover up of unscrupulous government doings. I’d like to say that this was at least entertaining, but it was flaccid, middling pop music culled from the worst dredges of each member’s main bands.
P.S. Taylor Hanson still looks like a girl.
And a Letter Grade: D
