2UIBestow's 5 word review .... Uplifting album for recessionary times!
Perfect Stranger is a brilliant pop/rock album from a band that I knew very little about until recently. Apparently Dublin band The Chapters have built up a loyal following over the last few years and their live shows are apparently amazing. I can understand this having listened to Perfect Stranger alot this week.
With Perfect Stranger, you get sing-a-long lyrics such as 'You can do anything or you can just breakdown' and 'I Don't Get It Why You Hurt Yourself So'. The album is full of 80's inspired keyboards and melodies. The singer sounds like the excellent Scottish singer Colin Hay from the 1980's band 'Men at Work'. Even some song titles suggest the 80's!
Looking for Love
Perfect Stranger is a great little album of eleven top quality pop songs. Here's hoping The Chapters are able to follow The Coronas and The Script onto the play lists of the popular radio stations in this country!
