My Own Planet
On Sunbreak , Citizens’ Utilities gives it the old college try at pop under a Big Star, albeit with more quirkiness and a couple ounces more rock power. Twangy, bittersweet, but low profile all the while, Citizens’ Utilities strive for the perfect pop and halfway succeed; considering the magnitude of such a task, it’s no small feat the band pulls off what it does. Basically, Citizens’ Utilities pays homage to the past but keeps its feet firmly entrenched in the present, thus making Sunbreak that much better, however pleasant and good-natured it may be.
