(Redeye)
Steve Wynn returns to LA’s Paisley Underground, where in the ’80s his band Dream Syndicate had created what was probably the scene’s finest moment, The Days of Wine and Roses and its single “Tell Me When it’s Over.” Though he goes back in time some 20 years ago on this new effort, Wynn hasn’t aged well. The disc has some great hooks and pop flourishes but they are mere drops in a large pool. His writing skills are rather flaccid and without former collaborator Kendra Smith the songs just cannot move under their own weight. Aside from the cool cover — a tribute to Andy Warhol’s banana cover for the Velvet Underground and Nico’s debut — it is a bland offering that will and should be quickly forgotten.
