Rotation

Dazzle does have a few clumsy moments: In "Guerrilla Skies," the faux-"Strawberry Fields Forever" lilt and "let me take you there" lyric are a bit heavy-handedly worshipful of the Fab Four, and song titles such as "Shepherd Song" and "Down at the Foundry" sound like they belong on an early Genesis album. But within these missteps, Throneberry drops its guard, revealing its unwavering ambition to become a great pop band. Sadly, that ambition may well seal the band's fate as a cultish, Midwestern extension of the Big Star legacy. A shame. (***)
