'Enjoy The Melodic Sunshine' is a homage to 60s psychedelic pop. It's full of Byrdsian melodes, Beach Boys-style harmonies and topped off with hippyish songwriting; one only has to scan the titles of the songs for evidence ('Glastonbury Revisited', 'Baby, You're So Free' etc.) Naturally it contains lots of chords and most of the tracks conform to traditional verse/chorus style. The problem is, this style of music has been recycled several times before not least by perennial under-achievers such as Teenage Fanclub and Diesel Park West who still proceed to make fine chiming guitar records only to find that despite critical acclaim they struggle to shift units. Those bands would be kicking themselves if Scotland's Cosmic Rough Riders achieved this feat. In fairness this is quite a strong collection of tracks; some of it's just too throwaway though and it's only the more melancholic sounding moments such as 'Revolution (In The Summertime)', 'The Pain Inside', 'You've Got Me' and 'Emily Darling' which suggests an edge that they will go on to do better things. Let's hope they do, because there's plenty of potential here.
