The Grays - Ro Sham Bo

This is an interesting project in band democracy if nothing else. Everyone wrote songs, everyone sang lead at some point, and nobody was the "leader." Unfortunately they only lasted for one album and it suffers a bit from having too many cooks in the kitchen. There's some noticeable unevenness of style as you go from songwriter to songwriter. On the other hand, "Very Best Years" is a fantastic Jason Falkner song and most of his material on this album foreshadows his excellent solo work. Highly recommended for Jellyfish fans, moderately recommended for everyone else.
