Carolina Liar - Show Me What I'm Looking For  

California Liar's album is one which doesn't bowl me over, but it is consistently very strong. The American-Swedish band are a project of Max Martin, and comparable to Rooney or One Republic in sound. This song popped up on my iPod the other day and I realised what a fantastic chorus it has, especially at the end where the song builds up. I imagine it would be brilliant to see performed live with a whole crowd singing along. The fact that Max Martin can make songs like this as well as girl-rock and Britney-pop (what else can you call the sub-genre initiated by Baby One More Time?) and boyband-sop, shows that he is the most talented songwriter/producer around today. That he isn't celebrated for that while people like Chris Martin and Gary Lightbody are, is an absolute travesty! Make sure you also listen to the single, It's Not Over, if you haven't already had the pleasure, and for fans of gratuitous swearing there's always All That Shit Is Gone...
