CD Review: Player/Kommander – On The Eve Of Absolute Get Down (Mighty Loud Records)

According to the band, this is a concept album which plays out in four separate phases about the struggle against succumbing to self-destruction. While concept albums of this nature are usually the territory of some pretentious prog band from the Netherlands or some such, this isn’t the case as Player/Kommander is a pretty upbeat rock band made up of your garden variety alt.rockers. The band manages to hit all bases: soul, boogie, disco, and even sing-along pop music on this album, doing a number on people who say they only like one genre of music. Dammit if they all aren’t here, doled out at about a song or two apiece.
