DAKONA


"Perfect Change" (Maverick; 2003)

Reviewed by Snidermann

 

There are two major problems with Dakona's "Perfect Change." The first is that the music has no teeth. It chugs along at a pleasant enough pace, but never really kicks in and rocks you. Which brings us to the second problem: each track sounds just like the last. It's really difficult to separate one track from another.

Dakona is spongerock, pure and simple. Same sound, interchangeable names. The band is undoubtedly talented but I can't believe "Perfect Change" is the best example of what they're capable of. Some of the songs might work well enough in a teen movie soundtrack - they're peppy enough and, lyrically, they actually try to say something - but gathered up together on one disc, they lose their individuality and, hence, their power.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
