Review of The Grapes Of Wrath – High Road (Aporia)

Grapes

It might have taken more than two decades to get a full album of new music from these Canadian pop icons but the wait is well worth it. The group has aged remarkably well and throughout these dozen songs, boasts a distinct power pop edge, drawing from The Byrds, The Beatles and Big Star. Nowhere are these influences more prevalent than on first single Good To See You, None Too Soon and Mexico. Please don’t wait another 22 years to make another record, Grapes. This is pure pop heaven.
