CD REVIEW: Joel Pelletier - Chamber Pop
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT
Artist: Joel Pelletier Website:http://www.joelp.com/ Genre: Pop CD Review: No truer cd title has been written - this is chamber pop. A band and a chamber orchestra - working together for the uncommon good. 'Birthday Song' is like one of the middle songs in the Beatles' Abbey Road, one of the connected songs, but I can't remember the name. Then there's the smooth, acoustic pop of '20th Century', with its close harmonies and bongos, proclaiming 'i'm not nostalgic for the 20th century / though i was born there it doesn't mean that much to me / i'm not nostalgic for the 20th century / cause then i'd live in the past / and that's the last place i'd want to be'. It's also an enhanced cd with some cool design and art to it. I like what I see and hear.
