Editorial Reviews

After releasing 3 albums on Sony/RPM as founder and frontman of the Candy Butchers, Mike Viola has not only moved on to a successful solo career, but has also emerged as a prominent songwriter, producer and session player. His latest solo effort, Electro De Perfecto, is his first new release in 4 years and features legendary sidemen Victor Indrizzo and Sean Hurley as his rhythm section.

I will definitely be buying this album to support him!
Benjamin Chubak
Full of muscular, complex guitar playing, delicious pop melodies and harmonies couching Mike's usual survey of unhappiness and ecstasy.
Mark Wade Stone
He has richly layered the vocal for a great power pop sound.

I happened across "Lurch" a few years ago and was struck by Mike Viola's tight, fun, and passionate power pop songs. "Electro De Perfecto" continues Mike's high standard, with perhaps a slightly darker spin.

Mike Viola is one of the best songwriters around when it comes to gorgeous, catchy melodies. He has richly layered the vocal for a great power pop sound. In some ways, he is a throwback to 70's band like the Raspberries and (obviously) the Beatles with this approach.

Some faves of this album are "Get You Back", "El Mundo De Perfecto", "Here's the Rub", and "Closet Cutter". The last two show the darker side of Mike's work.

There is a reason Mike is sought after as a collaborator, songwriter, and performer in both films (That Thing You Do, Walk Hard) and by other musicians (Rachael Yamagata, Mandy Moore, Fountains of Wayne). He brings to the table great songs and vision for how to perform them. Electro De Perfecto is one of the finest powerpop collections I have heard in years. Give it a listen.

I cannot wait to hear the rest of this record again, because right now I am almost completely stuck listening to the first track over & over. If Mike's past albums were undergrad work, this is his doctoral thesis. Full of muscular, complex guitar playing, delicious pop melodies and harmonies couching Mike's usual survey of unhappiness and ecstasy. His voice and guitar are jacked up in the mix the way I've always wanted to hear his music. One of the best singers in the business, Mike takes lots of vocal chances - more so than on other records - and does not wipe out a single time. Reminds me a bit of Falling Into Place album, but even better, if that's possible.

My first experience of this album came in the form of a live performance where Mike and Co. played of a couple of the songs at The Bootleg theater in Los Angeles.

At the end of their set Mike asked us for our emails so he could send us an early copy of the album.

That was the first time watching Mike and his gang perform, the songs were great, Mike was great and he even gave us free stuff! I will definitely be buying this album to support him! Though, I might be waiting for the vinyl version... haven't decided yet.

OVERALL: Buy this album and check out his other albums "Lurch" and "Hang on Mike" (Candy Butchers). If you like this, you will probably like his other ones as well.
