Shadows of the Waxwings
T.J. Simon's #17 album for 2002
First Appeared at The Music Box, February 2003, Volume 10, #2
Written by T.J. Simon
Detroit power popsters The Waxwings come to the table in 2002 with a harder edge than the bandís superior 2000 debut Low to the Ground. The Zombies-style harmonies and hooks remain on Shadows of the Waxwings with a greater emphasis on the electric guitar axwork of Dominic Romano. From the initial electric distortion on the opening track Wired That Way to the toe-tapping likeability of Brilliant Grey, The Waxwings are now two-for-two in the pop music world.
