True Love - I Was Accident - 2003

True Love's sophomore release and debut for No Lame Records, I Was Accident, features more of the band's sparkling power pop that plays like a split 7" between Elvis Costello and Cheap Trick. For fans of those bands this should be a good thing, even if at times the band seems somewhat overly indebted to their idols. It's as if they never got enough of Armed Forces and so set about to write a list of tunes that sound like unreleased Costello tracks circa 1979. That said, I Was Accident still contains some great songs including the beautiful power ballad "Throwing Back the Ring" and the raggedly melodic "The Genius." -AMG
