Format: Audio CD
I first became aware of Tommy Keene through his 2006 release Crashing the Ether. At the time I was going through a power-pop phase in my listening and bought Crashing the Ether on the strength of recommendations from other power-pop enthusiasts. Quite frankly, the album blew me away with its hook-laden melodies and big guitar sound. It was timeless but also very much of the present, a superb rock album in an era that has provided us with far too few of those. I also enjoyed its cult status, and felt that its relative obscurity allowed me to develop an even deeper connection with it.

Since discovering the little-known gem that introduced me to Tommy Keene's music, I have learned that the songwriter had a critically-acclaimed run of albums and sideman gigs during the 80s. These albums seem nearly impossible to find now, which is a shame. Keene has also collaborated with Robert Pollard, (formerly) of Guided By Voices, which makes sense given that both seem to have an affection for short, loud, very melodic songs.

So here is Tommy Keene's new one, a shorter, punchier work than Crashing the Ether. Perhaps some of Robert Pollard's influence has rubbed off on Mr. Keene, and it definitely works well. This is an album of big guitars and even bigger melodies, with a rawer edge that is more classic rock n roll (not "classic rock") than it is punk. However there are also moments of quieter yet utterly supreme pop perfection, such as the soaring "Save This Harmony." The album is nicely separated by an almost proggy instrumental, "Elevated," which uses interesting guitar effects to create a swirling and colorful musical environment.

You'd think that after decades of great power pop and Tommy Keene's own illustrious career as its best purveyor, there would be little left to ragale us with. How wrong that notion would be! Jangly hooks abound here, some of Keene's best ever (the songs here are every bit as catchy as "Places That Are Gone"), accompanied by nods to the early Who, amazing guitar work and terrific vocals. Even the odd instrumental guitar track is compelling. This CD starts off infectiously and just gets better track by track. Strangely, I haven't read one single review of it by any of the trades, re-demonstrating what a maligned genre power-pop still is, unless you're Miley Cyrus doing a watered down version of The Dollyrots, or some young and pretty emo band. All in all, this is 2009's best album so far and an absolute masterpiece.

All of Keene's albums are good, this one is a little better than the last few. He seems to have recaptured a bit of the edge he had earlier in his career. Perhaps thanks to hanging out with Bob Pollard. Fans will not be disappointed.

"In the Late Bright" is another gem in Tommy Keene's amazing 30 year career. He's showing no signs of slowing down. If you're a power-pop fan and you've never heard him, you need to check him out. The melodies are top notch, the lyrics are smart and the guitar playing is second to none. The album combines great rockers like "Please Don't Come Around" and "A Secret Life of Stories" with a few nicer slow tracks like "Sace This Harmony" plus one cool guitar instrumental "Elevated." Gin Blossoms, Goo Goo Dolls, Guided By Voices, Paul Westerburg and Velvet Crush all love Tommy Kenne. Grab this album and find out why.

After 20 years on the indie scene TK is better than ever & this latest release is his best in quite some time. Saw him live on this tour & his playing & vocals are still super tight. Its a shame some of his best work is OOP & way $$.

However, if you're going to spend the money, get Songs From The Film before any of the other more rare releases as its hands down his best.
