The Astrojet - The Astrojet
Fountains Of Wayne guitarist Jody Porter steps out of the shadow of that band's two prolific frontmen on his own project. It's another four-piece rock band with pop leanings and Oasis-like tendencies, but this time Porter sings lead and writes the tunes. There are a few pop thrills on this six-song disc, especially "Waiting For The Stars To Fall," which thankfully sounds nothing like Boy Meets Girl's 1988 #5 pop hit "Waiting For A Star To Fall." But when the songs drag, as on the plodding "Hide In The Light," they really drag. Quite nice overall, though.
YEAH YEAH YEAH, 2003
