“Being classified as “power pop” is often a dangerous, slippery slope. On one hand, you get instant adoration from a group of music fans that are as fanatic and devoted to the genre as most Europeans are to watching soccer (er, uh, football). On the other, the often over-earnestness of some power pop groups seem to turn off the hipsters; indeed, the “cool kids” aren’t often accepting of the “everyman.” But, when you have somebody as purely talented as Livonia-based power-pop legend Chris Richards — backed on his new disc by the Subtractions — giving a shit about what’s cool and hip becomes secondary when you focus on the guts and glory of the songs. On Sad Sounds of The Summer, thick guitars tangle with a locked-in rhythm section, and Richards’ familiar tenor rolls nicely over top, as each song is blanketed in a hefty amount of jangle and fuzz. Oh, and let it be known: the man knows his way around a quality bridge.”
