Fans of the 77s have come to Living Like A Cry - Frank Duval - Living Like A Cry gigantic gaps between the band's releases. Though the gap owed largely to the collapse of Brainstorm Artists International and the lack of a suitable label for the band's efforts, the band used the time to regroup and refocus after the disastrous Tom Tom Blues.
When it was finally released, A Golden Calabazo Con Bejuco - Los Corraleros de Majagual - Los Corraleros De Majagual of Radioactive Crows was promised to be a return to the jubilant, anthemic pop of The 77s.
And, for the most part, it is -- though it lacks that record's breadth and vitality. Michael Roe had been steeping himself in the moody One More Time - 77s* - A Golden Field Of Radioactive Crows of the La's and Red House Painters, and their influence shows in the gorgeous "One More Time" and the dreamy, delirious "Rise. But what was most refreshing was the fact that Roe seemed finally to have quieted all of his bar rock impulses.
The record's up-tempo numbers, like "Leaving" and "Down From You," owe more to the Ramones than Jimmy Page, and even when the band does give in to the blues "Mean Green Season"it is tempered and Dylanesque.
For all this improvement, however, the record does have its shortcomings. The band still can't seem to summon a memorable chorus, One More Time - 77s* - A Golden Field Of Radioactive Crows this deficiency severely undermines the development of the record's more promising songs. While A Golden Field of Radioactive Crows provides a convincing argument that the 77s still have a great album in them, sadly, it is not this album. However, this is a reaffirmation of purpose and direction, and a promising sign of things to come.
