The Right Idea (Second Heaven)
By: Geoff Melton
Although I'd never heard of Kenny Howes until I got this compilation of remixed and remastered songs from his first 3 CD's (all originally on AAJ Records and now out of print), one trip through The Right Idea and I was heading to Ebay to try to find the originals. The Right Idea explodes with some of the most perfect power pop I've heard in quite some time, drawing to mind the likes of everyone from The Beatles and Who to Trip Shakespeare and Matthew Sweet, and even throwing in a bit of garage rock. Although he has a touring band, the Yeah!, Howe's virtually a one-man band in the studio, writing the tunes, co-producing and handling most of the vocals and instruments himself. Hopefully someone out there will have sense enough to reissue the originals, because this stuff needs to be heard. (Look for a new disc sometime in 2001)
