Are You Feeling Anything Yet? the new project from Texan John McElhenney is the title of the former Blue Cartoon frontman's solo album, and you'd have to be six feet under to remain unmoved by this collection of catchy-as-hell pop rock. Hooks, melodies and yet more melodies burst out of these songs like rapid fire from an automatic weapon.

The Songs
Beginning with 'She's Gone', a quite brilliant song McElhenny wrote for Blue Cartoon that sounds better nowgiven the Buzzie treatment. Songs like 'Beautiful Beautiful', 'My Little World of Love' and 'I'm Inside You' are like manna from heaven for fans of Elvis Costello, The Loveless or other such power pop aficionados. Nearly every song is a bright, exuberant exponent of how music of this genre should be written, performed and produced, with tunes like the wonderfully upbeat 'A Place to Go' a particularly good example. The acoustic, understated 'Angela' slows things down and 'The Same Thing' proves that often the simplest pop melodies work the best.

In Summary
Musically, Buzzie have all the depth of a thin and crispy pizza, but the band never try to be a Radiohead or Ryan Adams equivalent. Instead, with a pop songwriter as talented as McElhenny at the helm, they wisely stick to their strengths and the result is an album of sheer pop bliss.
