The McClymonts

The McClymonts appear to have pretty much jettisoned the country template that defined their earlier output. Under the guidance of producer Andy Mak, Endless wholeheartedly embraces upbeat Nineties-influenced pop; that means big choruses, as on "House", a track Shania Twain might have once peddled, emotive electric guitars and synths amid the backing arrangements. Though the relentless polish does have its appeal, one wonders if these songs, some of which exhibit certain melodic intrigue (such as the title track), might have been better served up with less extravagance. Otherwise, Endless represents a bouncy, breezy new direction.
