Product description

Sam Roberts ~ We Were Born In A Flame

Amazon.com

A Montreal native and former hockey player, Sam Roberts gave up dreams of becoming a star Canadien [stet] to embark on a musical career. Given the track record of most jocks behind the mic, this doesn’t exactly portend great results, but Roberts's full-length debut is pretty good. Roberts writes tuneful folk-rock and power-pop tunes, many of them built around a percussively strummed acoustic guitar. Musically, he covers some of the same musical territory as Travis, but overall the effect is more extroverted and aggressive, less wispy and melancholic. Three of this CD's best songs are lifted by an earlier EP, Inhuman Condition, but there’s not a bum track among the 13 included here (although an unnecessary '70s rock-star guitar solo comes close to ruining the otherwise gorgeous and seductive orchestral pop of "Taj Mahal"). Canada seems full of musical artists who don't quite translate outside that country’s national borders, but the bright, confident appeal of Roberts’s full-length bow is far more universal. --Keith Moerer
