    The Strange Boys have added some muscle to the general mix. [Dec 2011, p.83]

    If The Strange Boys were Brits, you get the impression they'd officially be a big deal by now.

    So far, so chin-strokingly barroom--but then things take a turn for the interesting and Live Music becomes a more-frills-than-you-might-imagine, no filler delight.

    Live Music regresses into stylistic confusion, but the gems are worth the wait.

    As Sambol unravels that theme across these 14 songs, the album grows more endearing, if never quite exciting.

    Live Music opens with the roguish piano line of "Me and You" that simultaneously pops like a spark and settles lazily into Ryan Sambol's moaning vocals, setting up the freewheeling aura that permeates the A-side.
