The Lapdancers - The Ghost of Alcohol and Song - 2006


The Lapdancers are a new power pop alternative band that play rough enough to almost cross into emo territory with some great buzzsaw guitar riffs, but still have enough melody to keep you interested. It almost reminds me of the old John Faye group, The Caulfields mixed with The Posies. The album definitely has moments of greatness. "Don's John" is a rolling epic of a song that demands attention. And "Stuck in My Head" will do just that. My one problem is that some of the ballads are a bit too much like second-rate Toad the Wet Sprocket. Other than the excellent "Just a little bit" - the slower tunes bring the album to a halt and had me pressing the skip button. Overall, a very good effort. -Powerpopaholic
