Ross Beach
Ride Theory (Chicken Ranch Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Baton Rouge-based singer/songwriter Ross Beach delivers twenty-five power-folk-pop cuts, recorded at his home studio, on Ride Theory . The album, with plenty of cuts to choose from, offers up material that ranges from addictively infectious to tired, with plenty in-between. But, the majority of the album finds Ross Beach and his backing band, the She-Devils, delivering solid pop.

"Chained Together" is a power-folk ditty that has country blood running through it. The hooks are there, the grooves are aplenty, and the rhythm keeps your toes tapping. Good solid pop music. "I Hate Everything" turns up the amps with plenty of fuzz and charged pop. "Birthday Party" delivers the goods with a down home folk jamboree.

The album has its up's and down's, like life. And with over an hour of music to choose from, there are surely one or two cuts you'll enjoy, if not more. I'll give it a C+.
