On my third listen through What Comes After, the 11th album by The Honeydogs-Minneapolis' other favorite sons (The Replacements and Prince being the others), I couldn't help shake the feeling that Adam Levy and The Honeydogs have no interest in making popular music. The pieces are all there. Alert ears can pick up a wide range of musical influences fused with lyrics that are smart without sounding elitist and poignant without being sappy. The end result is a logical outgrowth of the ten albums which preceded it, a singular work that couldn't have been recorded by any band other than The Honeydogs. But they didn't record it to tap into some niche pop-music zeitgeist--they recorded it for themselves and their fan base.

This makes for fabulous listening, but a frustrating time trying to describe the album to the uninitiated. In one moment, What Comes After evokes the Beatles with clever song construction and undeniable pop hooks. In the next, it summons notes of Burt Bacharach. Here you'll get a touch of lyrics that remind me of Josh Ritter, or piano that calls to mind Ben Folds, or a refrain that could be Bob Dylan. Or Beck. Or Hank Williams.

It is also frustrating because this album deserves to be huge. But the pop-music machine seems singularly designed to keep exactly this kind of originality out of the marketplace.

The Honeydogs serve up an amazingly perky horn arrangement on "Aubben," then sweeping strings on track later with "Everything in its Place." Guitar and banjo feature on "Particles or Waves,"--same as "Blood is Blood" with the added bonus of some sweet, sweet accordion. The whole album closes out with a dose piano, organ and strings on the masterful "Turning Around.

I always appreciated it when a reviewer note influences when I haven't heard a group's music. Since these guys are not heard enough here goes. "Aubben" could be George Harrison solo with a catchy chorus. "Devil we do" could be White album Beatles. Both take a few listenings to sink in. The real gems to me are "Better Word" ,which reminds me of The Beau Brummels of the Triangle period, and "Broke it buy it" which could be Randy Newman with a Platic Ono piano banging away. The horns could be a guest apperance by Chicago. Extremely catchy and clever. "Fighting Weight" sounds like Squeeze , who are currently missing in action. In the end you know a Honeydog song when you hear it which proves that like The Beatles before them they stand alone above today's other pretenders. You need to sample these songs.

I like every song on this album. Complex melodies, sophisticated lyrics, compelling musical skills.

Take the time to sit and listen through a couple of times with headphone before you put in your background stack. It's worth the effort.
