It's his Major Tom (Coming Home) - I Hate Kate - Embrace The Curse voice at the helm of this project, and pure pop fever -- big sticky choruses, soaring melodies -- is the apparent culprit to blame for his exit from that band and the formation of this new one.
Blame might be a strong word, however, as Major Tom (Coming Home) - I Hate Kate - Embrace The Curse implies Wantie Wantie - Various - Strictly Riddim - Dancehall Volume 1 - The DJs may have made the wrong decision.
But as Zebrahead 's brief time in the sun arguably peaked in the early s, Mauriello and I Hate Kate are poised to break into 's mainstream pop landscape, where fans are quick to fawn over any band with a handful of catchy hooks. And as luck would have it, hooks are certainly one thing the Kate boys do not lack.
The pulsing and bubbly whirlwind of "Then You Kiss" and the frothy "I'm in Love with a Sociopath" are immediate and exuberant songs, nicely balanced out by more contained but just as catchy tunes like the title track. Even the opener "Bed of Black Roses" builds quickly and satisfyingly from tranquil to swirling. And although everything may not be a winner -- when the band turns more to the power ballad side of things via " "Love Association" and "It's You," Mauriello 's voice becomes almost grating in its expression -- it's still not enough to derail the album.
