Lucky Boys Confusion: CommitmentCommitment (2003)
Warner Music Group
Reviewer Rating: 3.5
Lucky Boys Confusion, being a suburban pop-rock group from Chicago…usually gets pigeonholed with many other less talented suburban Chicago groups. You may be surprised at what you hear out of these guys. They write a very distinct blend of punk, reggae, and hip-hop music to create a unique sound. Their first CD, released in 1998, was raw but showed the band's enormous amount of potential. The band then gained a following in the Midwest and released a single, "Dumb Pop Song" to the local stations here in Chicago. They picked up a major record contract along the way with Elektra, while touring profusely. They then released an album, "Throwing the Game", their first from Elektra. This album screams party, to say the least, with most the songs being about partying, drinking, smoking pot, and running from cops. It turned out to be an extremely underrated album, mixing elements of several genres while being quite catchy. The CD's main single, Fred Estaire also got plenty of spins here in Chicago, being a pretty unique pop-rock song inspired by the great Fred Estaire, of course. Not to mention these guys put on a hell of a live show.
