Dipsomaniacs - Freakin' Eureka - 2003

Following up 2001's acclaimed The Life You're Faking, Burlington, NJ's the Dipsomaniacs again delight fans of driving, Replacements-like melodic rock & roll on Freakin' Eureka. Frontman Mick Chorba writes memorable, hook-doused rockers like "Always Forgetting Something" and "Black Cloud." The latter's driving, Badfinger-meets-Wilco feel is totally irresistible, while boozy stomps like "Sun Shine Through" and "Calvin" balance grit with gumption. If the boogie rock found on "Little One" seems a little misguided, it's also a hell of a lot of fun. Simply stated, the Dipsomaniacs are a stellar band, and although Freakin' Eureka doesn't break much stylistic ground, it is a freakin' good time. -AMG
