It‘d be easy to overlook this slick album as still more chilled-out pop electronica from Northern Europe. But then you‘d miss the robot-rock funk of "Grand Funk Auto," the delicious echoes of "Someone Got Lifted," and the kitschy cocktail swank of "Ease My Mind." Producer T.D. Nicholson [no relation] began as a bass player and subtle but catchy b-lines drive each song, but what really makes Lake Shore Drive a special trip is his nuanced, dubby production, which is positively frozen when compared to the usual lukewarm attempts at chill.
