Skybombers – Take Me To Town
May 15, 2008
Melbourne based band Skybombers sound like a fusion of Jet, the Vines, Oasis, Rooney and Cheap Trick at their poppiest. Take Me To Town, their debut album, works best the harder it rocks, though “If You Want To Be The One” and “Eleanor’s Lullaby” are admittedly nifty pop ballads. The current single, “Always Complaining,” is okay, but “6am,” “1,2,4 To The Floor” and “It Goes Off” are better, more accomplished rockers, and where Skybombers really seem to play to their own strengths. Take Me To Town is a hit and miss debut, all in all, but it’s got some promise nevertheless.
