100-Word Review: Tinted Windows

with one comment

Supergroups aren’t so much in vogue anymore, but Tinted Windows — Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger (bass), Smashing Pumpkins’ James Iha (guitar), Hanson’s Taylor Hanson (vocals — yes, really, that Taylor Hanson) and Cheap Trick’s Bun E. Carlos (drums) — might just re-spark the trend with how good their debut is.  Schlesinger’s insanely catchy songwriting is all over this thing and Hanson’s vocals fit the upbeat, muscular pop perfectly.  Unsurprisingly, Tinted Windows sounds like Fountains of Wayne with a big extra helping of testosterone.  ”Messing With My Head” and “Can’t Get A Read On You” stand out among the album’s eleven addictive tracks.

Grade: A-
