Rating:6.5/10


Nine By Nine is the debut album for Detroit band, The Fletcher Pratt, who it seems have since disbanded. On Nine By Nine they play what you could call energetic power pop with quite a few sixties influences also infiltrating the mix, not unlike a cross between Elvis Costello, The Byrds and The Who. Their strong rhythm section helps lift the band above your average independent-pop band but Iím not impressed with either of the bandís overly nasal vocalists. This is a shame because they have some good songs, which donít really come across as strong as they could have.
