Feel The Real (Splork!)
by Scott Hefflon
A Berklee Boy Wonder calling himself Spaceman releases a 12-song CD of indulgent techno-hop much like mid-’80s Pop Will Eat Itself. Some of the harder tunes are similar to a Machines of Loving Grace verse milked for an entire song. For a self-released CD, this has good production and graphics, but it’s not nearly mind-blowing enough to warrant a bio-full of hype or the extensive special thanks. Technology has given us amazing equipment, but it can’t write catchy songs for us.
