His new album 'The Alternative To Love' is a collection of bittersweet and joyous, epic and memorable, highly contagious songs you can sing along with after one listen. Little does he know he's considerably helped his own plight by making an album full of them. I really like "The Alternative to Love. On it's own it is an outstanding album. I can't say enough great things about it. So with that comparison in mind, "The Alternative to Love" is a very, very good album. Out of the gate with track one (Spit It Out)Benson lays down superior power-pop music that kicks ass over anything I'm hearing on the radio.
Californian-based Brendan Benson has been one of the music industry’s nearly men for longer than he probably cares to remember.
