the latest chapter in Jeremy Gloff's ongoing series of albums
(his first was released way back in 1993), is his "love
album," an exhaustive collection of sixteen love songs.
Some are good, but others need work.
The problem with this round of Gloff's tunes is that they
run the fringe between catchy, effective pop and dreary, soggy
ballads. For example, tunes like the sweet "Iodine"
and jiggy, rock-influenced "Cleaning Time" are very pleasant
tunes, whereas "Now and When" and "Silence is the
Best Calm" are flat, dull duds.
Next time around, Gloff could pare down the songs he decides
to keep on his album and replace them with catchier, cleaner
tunes. But as it is, Romantico remains an okay, yet unfortunately inconsistent, album of love songs.
