The Secrets
Time Will Come
(Secret Deals Production)

In truth, the Australian combo called The Secrets is really the work of only two musicians, Peter Rechter and Graham McCoy. However, while the music emanates from this limited source, the references it draws upon is nearly boundless. Even after a cursory listen to the duo''s new opus, Time Will Come, it becomes clear there''s quite a bit of history held within these grooves.

Why it should sound this way is really no mystery considering the fact that the Secrets'' roots stretch back to a succession of earlier Aussie bands that hit their heyday back in the mid ''60s, an era these songs reference in every detail. In fact, listening to the riveting and rollicking "Claudette Jones," the brass-infused "Think About the Boy" and, for that matter, any of the other tunes that occupy this extremely engaging ten-song set, is like boarding a time machine for a fab foray back to the ''60s. Unlike many in today''s current crop of power pop purists, Rechter and McCoy aren''t afraid of making music that''s primarily catchy and commercial, devoid of the angst and attitude that often creeps in just when it seems the mood''s most merry. Aside from the fact that it''s astounding how much music can come out of a core of only two musicians, as manifested in these infectious, articulate arrangements, The Secrets clearly live and breathe this style and sound. It''s so obviously grabbing and infectious, it''s impossible not to get caught up in their enthusiasm.

It would be a shame if The Secrets remain a secret to the world at large. After all, each and every song contains the kind of happy-go-lucky groove that once made Top 40 radio such a joyous and magical experience. Sadly, the music that fills the airwaves these days is no longer so sparkling and spontaneous. It would be nice to think The Secrets'' time will come, as the album implies, and they''ll lead a charge back to a brighter, buoyant approach. Until it does, allow this album to suffice. https://www.tradebit.com
The Secrets
Time Will Come CD

''The Secrets'' from Melbourne Australia have produced a great new CD ''Time Will Come'', saturated with 60''s riffs, hooks & melodies, a must for anyone interested in sixties pop brought up to date for the ''noughties''.

The Secrets, offspring of the Aussie 60''s cult band, The Tol Puddle Martyrs, have remained deeply influenced by the sounds of the 60''s and have kept this spirit alive with integrity and ingenuity.

The CD features 10 well crafted tracks, as well as a selection of hidden goodies and video clips revealing past secrets.

The Secrets crash onto your CD player with ''Claudette Jones'', a wild 60''s punker, with biting fuzz guitar and snotty vocals. Working their way through a collection of pure pop and power pop gems from the buoyant ''Good Times Bad Times'' and ''Feel Pretty Good'' to the infectious ''Think About The Boy ''and ''S.O.S.'' as they dream, pump, bop and rock their way through their album to the moody, magnificent, Tol Puddle Martyrs psychedelic drenched hit from 1968, ''Time Will Come''.

Not bad for guys who could have kicked the habit years ago and remained elusive cult figures.
