POP: Power Pop, ROCK: Roots Rock
Ten Story Love plays guitar-powered pop; Put Matthew Sweet, Cheap Trick, Todd Rundgren, Tom Petty, Wilco and Paul Westerberg in a blender... we *hope* it comes out sounding something like Ten Story Love.
Ten Story Love is the name of both the band and their first CD, a collection of 13 songs about life, love, work, philosophy, and even a ''Big Question'' or two. Based in the New England/Boston area, Ten Story Love writes and performs ''guitar-powered pop''. Their songs center on smart lyrics wrapped around tasty, memorable melodies with anthemic guitars and unbridled energy. While the dual guitar team of Brad Page & Scot Gibbs are formidable as soloists, Ten Story Love has been called ''the Jedi Masters of the lost art of rhythm guitar''.
This is a disc chock-full of loud, rocking pop with meaty hooks and heart, spirit and soul to spare. Looking both backward and forward at the same time, the album fuses Kinks, Big Star and Gin Blossoms influences effortlessly without any retro hangover. Each song has a hook and melody that in a better world, would be all over the radio.
