Gin Blossoms

No Chocolate Cake
Artwork

By this point, it's safe to say that the Gin Blossoms have no interest in straying too far from the '90s Southwest-flavored alt/rock sound that put them on every fan's map; they're smart enough to know what works for them, and they're wisely sticking to it. Still, No Chocolate Cake offers a few mild surprises, like the crunchy power-pop of opener "Don't Change For Me", the piano-based ballad "If You'll Be Mine", and the addition of a horn section on "Dead Or Alive On The 405". For the most part, however, it's chock full of the pleasant melodies, vocal harmonies, and jangly guitar interplay that come standard with every Gin Blossoms album, and hats off to singer Robin Wilson, who is in especially fine form throughout.
