Unoriginal Recipe is the fourth release by The Steinways.
It's the first release of theirs not to have any tracks clocking in under 30
seconds - something that the band became somewhat known for following the
release of their debut 20 track less than 20 minute long album Missed The
Boat. Some might say the change came about as a result of the bands maturity
level being on the rise, but who are they kidding?! We're more comfortable
thinking that it's more about the band giving the people what they want -
more bang for their buck! Instead of teasing and taunting listeners with 30
seconds of pure awesome and then ending abruptly - leaving them with
whatever the equivalent of audio blue balls is - they're giving us all a
full minute (or more!) of solid audio gold! Yeah, I know, a whole minute -
Thanks, Steinways! In all seriousness, the six songs that make up Unoriginal
Recipe may not be any more mature in content or even style than The
Steinways' previous releases, but they are most definitely a step up in the
development and crafting of instantly catchy, clever classics
department. Every record The Steinways put out will be better than the one
before. If you're not hooked at this point, stay tuned for the next one.
Eventually this band will own your ears.
