Friends In High Places (CD)
Which is a roundabout way of saying that Friends in High Places, the debut from Seattle quartet ALL TIME HIGH, hits me right in my sweet spot. Not as pop-minded as NIRVANA, as psychedelic as SCREAMING TREES or as weird as SOUNDGARDEN, ATH nonetheless bears echoes of all three. The band's riffs fly fast and furious, whether banging against each other like radar-confused bats or joining in harmony for some heads-down boogie, while the rhythm section keeps a rock-steady hand on the wheel. Frontdude ADRIAN MAKINS' lyrics strive for new ways to express the usual concerns, while his raspy croon sounds created specifically to float over melodic-yet-bruising passages. Given an appropriately clearheaded, loud mix by Pacific Northwest grunge mentor JACK ENDINO, cool tracks like "Earthquake Bee," "Pollyanna" and "Nice Guys Laugh Last" are well-crafted songs given enthusiastic performances. Given its locale and obvious influences, All Time High could be accused of a retro fixation. But to my ears Friends in High Places sounds less nostalgic than timeless. (Michael Toland)
