I’m quite puzzled by Backseat Boogie’s new album. The group plays well, and the production is quite good (even if we feel an obvious desire to seduce a large audience), but in the end, the album is quite tasteless. The group tackles different genres, practically one per song, ranging from Boogie Blues to Country via Blues, Rock’n’Roll and Country-rock, but is never really convincing. While the Backseat Boogie should focus on one or two styles and define a sound of their own, the group scatters, disperses and loses the listener along the way. It’s not bad, just not memorable, and it’s maybe the most annoying thing that can happen to a band, especially a Rock’n’Roll band.
