Balanceman Welcome to Balanceland
- Words: Scott Thill
- Label: NutMeats
When it hews too close to the cookie-cutter work of Daft Punk on songs like "Robot Wife" and "Insertion Time," the Bay Area-based Balanceman‘s new joint feels like a Casio hangover. But when it kicks the drums and spreads its cinematic wings on tracks like "Stick to the Plan" and "Nature Boy," all seems right with the world. Which is to say that musical beauty is still in the ears of the beholder, and as long as Balanceman-also known as J. Goody to his folks-keeps it diverse and soulful, he‘s keeping it real...interesting.
