Public Display of Affliction
Buy this CD.... Buy THIS CD.... BUY THIS CD!!! Some music needs a lot of hype. Some doesn't. This is great music from a band we've never heard of before. Something like Neil Finn playing with the Goo Goo Dolls at Sarah McLachlan's house. It's music made simply for the making, take it or leave it. It just so happens it's well worth taking.... Tin Man Alley is the primary song writing outlet for prolific songwriter and composer Robert Wait. You may have heard his film and TV scores in recent years, or perhaps heard some of his songs in movies. But this CD is different. This one he's flying under the radar and releasing as an independent. There's no hype, no publicity. Just an excellent CD full of songs you'll be hearing in your head, long after the CD player has been turned off. As a result, music lovers have a true opportunity to discover something great on their own, and make it personal. There is one concern however. Given the CD's infectious combination of clever lyrics, cool melodies and harmonies, atmospheric loops and shimmering guitars, the time to claim this band as your own may be limited. All it will take is one ambitious radio programmer to start giving away the secret of Tin Man Alley. Then again, worse things could happen.
