"Make it Worse" CD
Don't You Hate Pants?
Genre: country- rock, indie rock
Jan 24, 2009
This gang of country-rockers takes a major cue from Cracker, whose
melodic nature they emulate admirably. Make it Worse isn't up to par
with the Californian legends' work, but it's a decent selection of
competent songs. While Slimfit is guilty of some measure of filler on
this record ("Easy to Talk To," "Old Song," "Pony Up"), they have also
produced some seriously solid material here.
Cracker ringer "That's Me"
is a seriously delightful single, while "Wrong is Wrong" features a spectacular chorus and
"Which Way You Gonna Go?" is a Lowery-esque
anthem. While it could stand to be considerably more consistent, Make
it Worse is nonetheless a strong, catchy country-rock
album. I'll be curious to find out whether Slimfit will manage a
greater concentration of their stronger material on their next disc
it sounds like they've got the chops to be a very good band.
