The Juliets – Self Titled
I don’t know how this album could make a better first impression. Catchy opening track, engaging vocals, wonderfully blended instrumentation. As the album progresses though, many more layers of style and songwriting unfold. Things end up a lot darker than the opener may indicate. Heck, “Sweetheart” is the only track that is in a major key, though the album closer “Drive You Home” gets close…but it’s definitely not a happy song. Or album. But damn, it’s good.
