CD review: SUBURBIA AND MINIVANS
By: Dan Brisebois (www.candianbands.com)
A boisterous follow-up to their 2011 debut, Marinol Nation hits it out of the park with SUBURBIA AND MINIVANS. A playful collection of contradictions, it's an album that explores the happy side of hell, tells stories of a frog disguised as a princess, and says its ok to die, because someone else is going first.

It has a general sense of doing wrong despite knowing the consequences, and is full of spunk and diversity. It crosses over from the rawness of "Three Strikes Out" to the quirky "Gonna Bury You" and the tender ballad "Circling the Drain," a duet with Isabelle Robinson.

Musically, the most structured and complex track is "Oh Well," a progressive number that actually seems out of place from the generally raw, raucus over-all feel. It stands out for that reason, as is the case with "Took A Dive For Jesus," one of the more socially-outspoken, and easily the hardest-hitting tracks.

Lyrically, the songs are written with a thought provocative introspective with passion and sentiment. Leader Eli Martin's personal vices appear to be the order of the day in "Three Strikes Out," "Junkie Girl," "Gonna Bury You," and "Another Rehab." It's the honesty in the songs that makes the album stand out from the crowd.

SUBURBIA AND MINIVANS is a good collection of straight forward pop, sometimes with a progressive tinge, sometimes with a harder edge, but always well done.
