Listing Detail Tabs

'Candy from a Stranger' has a sleek, well-crafted, "classic alternative" sound, and it features some gently sculpted textures--a winsome mandolin in "Close," a slippery Morricone guitarscape in "Cradle Chain." But even when Candy’s rocking hard, it’s tasteful and nearly toothless. Soul Asylum just sound hopelessly, if pleasantly, retrograde.

A sampling of invigorating power-pop anthems, jangly, falling-in-and-out-of-love songs and edgy ballads, Candy finds Pirner ... at his pop music best. The 34-year-old rocker sounds, in turn, optimistic, melancholy and inspired.

Acoustic guitars, heart-on-sleeve lyrics, world-weary singing--six years after their big commercial breakthrough, these mellowed-out punks ... should be ingested sparingly.
