Roadside Attraction
Ribbed For Your Pleasure (Dangerous Grooves)

By: Alex Steininger

With horrible artwork (a hot girl eating ribs) trying to play on the album's title, Ribbed For Your Pleasure, Roadside Attraction's latest is a weak, watered-down pop-rock record bogged down by funk and jazz infusions. Even the straight-ahead pop-rock songs just don't do anything, they sound uninspired and rushed, uncompleted, as if they were half-ideas that blossomed too soon. The record has a demo-y quality to it. And though there are signs of coal, songs that may turn into diamonds if time was spent on them, the record as a whole is lacking a vision and focus. I'll give it a D.
