Recordings

In any case, their clever hooks and wittily unassuming lyrics make for perfectly respectable pop listening. The songs are self-deprecating '90s-guy stuff about loving your wife and kids and mom and dad and dog, or about the restorative power of old music or of daydreaming, and the best of them--"Old Guitars," "Only a Good Woman," "Boys in Bars," "K9 Love" and the Jimmy Buffettish "Guess Again"--are really pleasant. The obligatory cover--of James Taylor's "Rainy Day Man"--doesn't endanger Taylor's standing, but there are no real clunkers. The title, incidentally, is a condensation of "folk-rock-soul-country." If FOROSOCO won't revolutionize any of these genres, it doesn't embarrass them, either.

--M. V. Moorhead
