||Top Secret (2004)
Alien Music Club's "Top Secret" is a secret that ought to be shared with anyone who appreciates artists who push the envelope within multiple genres and do so with kick ass fun. With influences from Elvis Costello to Steely Dan, VanHalen, SRV, Zevon and They Might Be Giants - combined with irresistible comedic and cynical lyrical content and perfect production quality and great musicianship.
The cover Joe Jackson's "Is She Really Going Out With Him", in a speedy reggae, almost Devo (Satisfaction) style with smooth creamy pop harmonies and vocals.
These musicians from another world cut loose at least a couple of times with speed pop/jazz instrumentals on the sandwich tracks (opening and closing cuts), "Crash Landing" and "Sexuality". Tracks have a purpose in their placement, order, composition, narrative, and presentation - the album makes sense from start to finish.
