Album Review: Cake – Showroom Of Compassion

Some bands find a sound that works for an album, some find a sound that works for five and very rarely, some find a sound that works for every album.

Frontman John McCrea’s vocals are just as full of the esoteric ennui that captivated listeners back in the late 90s, Xan McCurdy’s guitar tone still sounds stolen from a jangly country and western song and he still works his fretboard like he’s reinventing musical scales by ditching all the crap notes.
