MUSIC REVIEWS

Kevin Salem-Glimmer (Roadrunner)

 

You really can't judge a disk by its cover. This album is fronted by an old photo of a red-headed Opie Cunningham-type kid holding a fish over his shoulders.

 

Right away I had nightmares of sad acoustic ballads asking "where did the old days go?" and explaining in excruciating detail how life just isn't the same since the days of 10 cent pops and the old fishin' hole.

 

So I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that Glimmer was actually a well produced rock album that could very easily be a lost old Tom Petty album. The chiming guitars of "Innocence" and the wounded power ballad (and I mean that in the best sense, not in the Warrant mold) "Destructible" opened my eyes to a promising new talent. (8/96)
