Man Of The Year - A New And Greater Tokyo - 2004


A New And Greater Tokyo is the Canadian debut by , a Brit Rock combo leading the post-new wave charge out of Portland, Oregon. Loud and ringing guitars are at the forefront of elaborate melodic pop orchestrations not unlike perhaps Franz Ferdinand on downers with Brian Wilson arranging. The basic raw power of no nonsense guitar hooks is genetically ingrained in all Portland and Seattle bands since the days of The Kingsmen and The Sonics, and Man of The Year temper that power with an intelligent pop sheen all their own.
This is the band's second album, and leader/guitarist Tod Morrisey's attention to lyrical detail transcends the staleness of commercial rock and forgettable pop clichés, resulting in an even more sophisticated sound than their critically acclaimed previous effort, The Future Is Not Now (2000). -bongobeat.com
