Adam Daniel - Blue Pop - 1999

Blue Pop stands among the best guitar-pop albums of the '90s with swirling melodies, unforgettable hooks, and heartbreaking sincerity. With its release, Adam Daniel establishes himself as another gifted, though commercially overlooked, songwriter in the vein of Tommy Keene and Marshall Crenshaw. Ranging from spiteful ("Breaking Up") to unabashedly optimistic ("Simple Things"), Daniel hits every point on the romantic spectrum. Though he deals with typical subject matter, he manages to inject enough personality into his songs to make them unique. "Her Shake" is an energetic attack of punchy guitars and singalong harmonies that will leave any true pop fan reeling, while "Cured twists and turns until it's completely embedded into your brain. Other highlights include the tragically sad "Why I Can't Be Beside You" and the dreamy "Battle Song." -AMG

I don't have to download and check out this one. I bought it when it came out in 1999 and absolutely love it. One of the best CD's of all times. If you don't know it, check it out!!

I love your site by the way, a great way to discover and check out power pop music and ultimately buy it. Nothing beats the actual hard copy of a very good album. best, Patrick

I bought this one sometime at or near when it was originally released. Wonderful album. Another best of the 90's that many, most likely, don't own. Keep up the good work.
