"...And Then Some" CD
Feb 6, 2009
...And Then Some is the result of a collaboration between
Canada's Luke Jackson and Sweden's Magnus Borjeson (Beagle,
Favorita, Cardigans). The name of the game is
radio-friendly singer/songwriter pop/rock, well-produced and
professionally written. The majority of these ten songs are breezy and
infectious, sprinkled liberally with seriously juicy hooks. Opener
"Come Tomorrow" makes for a solid midtempo pop single, though I'm
particularly impressed by tremendously catchy "Longest Day" and
feel-good anthem "Goodbye London."
Meanwhile, some of the lighter, folk-heavy songs take cues from the
Jack Johnson camp ("Trouble," "The Fear") and
turn out a bit bland as a result. Overall, this is a
straightforward pop album with a very professional, well-produced
aura. It won't change the world, but it
sure goes down smooth.
