Poor Man's Falls
Monday Morning Gloom
On their third album, King Richard's Collectibles, The Asteroid No.4 play a combination of classic pop and psychedelia that brings to mind bands like Ride, Beachwood Sparks, and even a more low key Dandy Warhols. While King Richard's Collectibles is an interesting album, it fails to really get under my skin, unlike the similar inclined Cotton Mather album, The Big Picture (reviewed elsewhere) Not only aren't the songs quite as good but neither is the production, which is decidedly basic. For whatever reason, the songs just don't connect the way they should. However, there's no doubt the band have potential, seeing as they all appear quite young in the photos and this is already their third album.
