The Reunion Show might have fit perfectly into the 1980s music scene. Its synthesizer-heavy, upbeat pop/rock tunes almost seem like missing pages from an earlier, less serious era, and bands such as the Cars come to mind when listening to tracks like "Television," about our TV-obsessed masses. Throughout the project, the group deftly performs powerful guitar and percussion exchanges, as on the infatuation song "Stuck on You" and "On a Scale From One to Awesome (You're Pretty Great)," a highly catchy track about escaping into outer space with a lover. Lyrically, the Reunion Show seeks to establish itself as a bit of a rock outsider. The song "New Rock Revolution," for example, is introduced with the verses "I am right and you are wrong/Every dynasty will fall." Fans of more contemporary rock will also find many gems here.—JK
