20,000 Streets Under the Sky

20,000 Streets Under the Sky
(Yep Roc)
English novelist Nick Hornby has touted Marah’s 20,000 Streets Under The Sky to be “One of 2004’s most-loved straight-ahead rock albums.” It will not be. Marah takes the hammiest elements of early Steve Earle and Springsteen to produce a straight-ahead rock sound that recalls such wonders of modern music as the Refreshments and Jon Bon Jovi’s solo work. As boring as it is forgettable, 20,000 Streets Under the Sky will fail to inspire anything but putting Modest Mouse back on.
