Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Taylor Locke, Robert Schwartzman (vocals, guitar); Ned Brower (vocals, drums); Louis Stephens (keyboards); Matthew Winter (bass guitar).
  • The sunny, hooky pop of Rooney's sophomore effort, CALLING THE WORLD, follows in the footsteps of the band's assured 2003 debut. As bright and breezy as a day at the beach in Los Angeles (Rooney's home town), CALLING THE WORLD borrows from the classic melody-heavy and harmony-rich sounds of the Beach Boys, the Beatles, and ELO.
  • Detractors may be tempted to label Rooney as little more than a retro exercise in pop history, since even when the songs diverge into new stylistic territory--as they do with the orchestral sweep of "I Should've Been After You" or the angular jam of "Paralyzed"--they seem to reference famous art rock and new wave forebears. But Rooney aren't out to blaze new trails: this is fun, playful pop rock that is listener-friendly from start to finish.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Rooney's second album owes as much to Seventies keyboard-driven radio rock as Weezer, and it's even more hook-slathered and fetchingly tuneful than the first."

Entertainment Weekly (p.74) - "[T]heir alt-y new-wave jangle is filtered through big, brash production..." -- Grade: B+
