Boston’s venerable music journal, The Metronome, recently featured a glowing review of our latest album, Marlboro Road. Here’s the story in all its glory:
BROOK MEGGS / Marlboro Road
Singer-guitarist Brook Meggs (cool name) along with bassist Karen Rusk and drummer Mike Levesque bang out a high spirited, power trio driven collection of songs that bristles with tone-filled guitar work, pulsing bass lines and spot-on time keeping. Featuring cameos by November 16th Players Lori Sims Hodges and Jacob Rivera, Meggs and company prove to be a taut pop-rock outfit.
Best cuts on the Marlboro Road collection include the quirky “Chance Encounter,” the reflective, beat-laden ode to former punk rocker/poet, “Jim Carroll Died,” that features stellar solo guitar work, the wah-wah fueled “Lonesome Is,” the high steppin’ blues rock swagger of “Familiar,” and the romping, punk potent “Spill.” This album just gets better sounding listen after listen. Good stuff! [Douglas Sloan]
