The Alisons – Thoughtless
I can’t even recall how we backed into The Alisons. This credible album spawns too many great and propulsive singles to be ignored as the year ends, as we begin to compile year-end “best of” lists. As we were working on our critics picks, we also backed into this “making of” preview for Thoughtless. And it’s got charm. This Kingston, Ontario power trio prove their chops like they’ve been at it for a decade. From “Asbestos” to “Something Else” to “Alone”, this is a band in command of their sound. Hooks are abundant and compelling. Several of these choice cuts graduated to permanent rotation within two weeks of air, and that’s no small feat.
