JOHNNY MONACO Overrated Cargo Records (2007)

Johnny Monaco is the guitarist and now also vocalist with Enuff Z Nuff (he seems to have replaced original vocalist Donnie Vie certainly as far as touring goes).

On this his first full solo album he has penned, produced and played all the instruments on the fourteen songs on here. The songs are very much in the Enuff Z Nuff mould being for the most part up tempo pop rockers like the excellent 'The Wrong Crowd', the driving guitars on the title track and 'The Model Of A Woman' where Monaco sounds like Donnie Vie crossed with Elvis Costello!

Only slight criticism is that some songs do tend to sound similar, especially in the guitar and drum sound.

Definitely one for Enuff Z Nuff fans and short, spiky pop rock tunes a la Butch Walker or Ginger's solo output.
