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. Â Schlesinger’s insanely catchy songwriting is all over this thing and Hanson’s vocals fit the upbeat, muscular pop perfectly. Â Unsurprisingly, Tinted Windows sounds like Fountains of Wayne with a big extra helping of testosterone. Â ”Messing With My Head” and “Can’t Get A Read On You” stand out among the album’s eleven addictive tracks.
