Album review

Mark Bacino - The Million Dollar Milkshake

New York power popper Mark Bacino is just as adept as his peers at assimilating The Beatles, Badfinger et al, but studiously avoids the inherent pitfalls of the style, maintaining just the right blend of melodic sweetness and rock toughness àla vintage Raspberries or Cheap Trick. His voice possesses a touch of soulful grit that keeps even the most romantic pop numbers from getting too sugary, but Bacino's not afraid to recall the days of bubblegum pop with his insanely catchy choruses and hook lines.
