If the Raspberries formed in the wake of punk rock, they might sound something like Silver Sun. This British quartet amps its harmonies up with plenty of fuzzy guitar riffs. Whether singing about garlic or puppies (and both are on this CD), the sound is oh-so-inviting, with barbed hooks that last for days. In singer-songwriter James Broad, Silver Sun has a seemingly endless supply of deliciously striking power pop. Songs such as "Bubblegum," "Immediate" and the dreamy "If She Wants a Puppy" (see?) are some of the finest chunky pop tunes being made these days.
