Comprised of a U.K.-U.S. hybrid, Radford jumps the alterna-pop bandwagon on their self-titled debut album and matches their glossy sound with bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls, Matchbox Twenty, and Tonic. Catchy lyrics and quick musicianship are undefined and make good for Top 40 followers. Songs like "Fly" and "You've Got Friends" are whimsical and impressively untainted by intense vocal growling and thrash composition typically found in late-'90s corporate rock.
