Released:
Label: Big Head Todd & The Monsters
The opening title track just might be the best retro-yacht-rock jam this side of Michael McDonald's houseboat. From there, Todd and his Monsters set sail across a collection of funky pop-rock and mellow blue-eyed soul that is equally informed by 1970s soft rock. The only jarring moment on the record is the chorus to its lead single "Beautiful": "You're so beautiful when you're wrong." Such a condescending line makes total sense, however, when you reach track 10, a cover of the Stones' "Beast of Burden." Mr. Big Head is merely channeling Mick Jagger's longtime flirtation with sexist posturing.
