FARRAH Cut Out And Keep (2007)


Wow! Farrah have made their best album to date with this their third release. For those who love quirky pop rock like XTC, Cheap Trick, anything featuring Willie Dowling and Jellyfish coupled with a little ELO and Fountains Of Wayne then buy this CD ASAP.

Every song could be an airplay hit none more so that the big dumb rock anthem 'Dumb Dumb Ditty' with its very catchy but simple chorus. But wait it gets better - 'Awkward Situation' and 'No Reason Why' hint at ELO with Fountains Of Wayne thrown in and of course the band's own styling as well.

'Fear Of Flying' sees Michelle Margherita take lead vocals for a great pop rock single. 'School Reunion' tells the story of a school leaver whose life didn't quite turn out as planned although the music is bright and breezy!

It is not all short pop rock gems as 'As Soon As I Get Over You' is a heartfelt acoustic ballad and a lovely song.

They have already made a splash in Japan and hopefully this album will get them the recognition they deserve in the UK, Europe and the US.

The latter would definitely like the tunes on here given the success of Fountains Of Wayne and the Goo Goo Dolls et al. An album chock full of gems that shows how pop rock should be done.
