MARAH Float Away With The Friday Night Gods (E-Squared/Sony) Rating: NN Rating: NN
Now that Oasis are obsessed with getting back to their triumphant, stadium-rocking best, Philly brawlers Marah clearly felt the time was right for a bit of Morning Glory of their own. With that in mind, the group recorded a third album with former Oasis producer Owen Morris. The result is a record that sounds more like Oasis than Oasis does these days, with vocalist David Bielanko even trying out his best Liam-like sneer. Float Away With The Friday Night Gods is as ridiculous as it sounds, and even though Marah got their hero Bruce Springsteen to guest on one track, they're still trying to churn out bland party rock clichés about getting high and magic potions in fake accents with straight faces.
