WE'LL DODGE IT ON THE WAY BACK
Fairview is a middle of the road rock band that hails from Orange County, California. The latest release by this quartet is laden with piano, a nice touch that helps Fairview stand out amongst the plethora of moppy haired, wire-thin musicians these days. What also helps Fairview is its ability to mix pop sensibilities into a rock setting, indicated in the '60s tinged "I Wrote You I Would". In fact, melody holds a special place in the musical climate of Fairview, as this disc is extremely hummable and elicits quite a few memorable choruses, such as the bouncy "Don't Ever Tell Anybody Anything". As an extra bonus, the seven studio tracks are accompanied by acoustic renditions and outtakes, making this disc a 15-track endeavor and well worth it for those that crave the modern rock radio sound.
