Alternative rock music your dad would be into. There's some great guitar work throughout this CD. His influences come from all over (60's harmonies/ pop structrue and some 90's pop-garage-rock) and mash together in a way that isn't unpleasant at all but very difficult to distinguish. There's a lot of They Might Be Giants influenced writing going on; there's an upbeat sense of humor coming from this guy. Some pretty good body-shaking jams but nothing that'll have you trashing around or thinking too much
Ah yes, a Chicago band. It's guaranteed to be good and it is. First track sounds like something you'd hear in the Intro of "Grease" replaced with the vocal style of RHCP's Anthony Kiedis. Sounds off putting but the two pair quite nicely. Track 4 is prety depressing but the rest of the album consists of a lot of funk and jam instrumental incroporated with some blues.
