With his eclectic self-titled sophomore set, Boston's Andy Pratt made his first major bid into the burgeoning singer/songwriter scene, introducing himself to American audiences via the ambitious and infinitely charming outlaw pop anthem, "Avenging Annie," which became a modest hit in 1973 and remains a cult classic today.
After their lovely, Jeff Buckley-worshiping debut in 2001, the Jimmy Gnecco-led band issued this full-bodied follow-up a year later. Buckley's ghost remains, but there's also a lot for fans of early Muse howlers to like. While Gnecco never reached this same production peak again, a recently released 2018 album offers hope for the future. Highlights include "In A Minute," "Chapter 2 (Money)," "If Flowers Turn," and "Red Colored Stars."
