Label: Bar/None Records
The dB's haven't lost their sense of irony. Falling Off the Sky, the original line-up's first record since 1982's Repercussion, opens with the anti-nostalgia proclamation "That Time is Gone." Yet for the rest of the album the group proves the opposite. Every tune is a power pop nugget that could've been recorded back in the group's mid-'80s heyday. The best ones are also the quirkiest, like the throbbing, suite-like "The Adventures of Albatross and Doggerel." Then again, "Send Me Something Real" isn't terribly odd; it's just that those golden harmonies and wispy jangle are classic sounding.
