The Double Cross (Murderecords)

When I think of my relationship with Sloan over the last two decades, I can honestly say I never expected the band to give me musical epiphanies or change the world. But I did expect consistency— in creating catchy, clever rock and roll, giving up hit after hit with no surprises. That is exactly what the band has done over and over, and again with The Double Cross. After all this time, Sloan still (thankfully) claims no false pretension, doesn’t aspire to make lame rock-opera musicals (I’m looking at you, Green Day), preferring instead to deliver on what it knows best. Good on ya, boys for sticking it out and finding ways to make hits without sounding passe.
