“To my recollection, Blues Lawyer have always been purveyors of short and sweet scrappy garage pop songs, criminally underrated and destined for obscurity. With their new LP (All In Good Time), they may very well head to indie pop stardom. You see, All In Good Time has all the markings of a modern classic. Blues Lawyer have never sounded this polished and focused, and while the band’s pop edge has always been present in their music, I don’t think it has ever been this razor sharp. The Evan Dandoesque and angelic voices of the band’s main vocalists contrast and complement each other at just the right moments. And yet, underneath all the altpop bliss, Blues Lawyer still sounds like a cool underground pop band that wears its influences on its sleeves. Those influences range from classic rock to jangle pop, from twee to ’90s altpop, and from powerpop to punk rock.”
