Listening to the Bigger Loversit's hard not to be coaxed into worn guitar pop superlatives "jangle," "power pop," etc. It's also hard not to get caught up in trainspotting the group's sublime ancestry -- the way, for instance, the splashy, expansive "Emmanuelle" seems to draw equally on both Cheap Trick and Move -era Jeff Lynne.
Or the Robin Zander -meets- Robyn Hitchcock vocals throughout the Youre In Love Again - The Bigger Lovers - Honey In The Hive . The Bigger Lovers seem to have a bit more going for them than a lot of power pop upstarts, however, and like Big Star and Cheap Trick before them the Philadelphia group is able to sublimate their cheeky Anglo-pop influences into something wholly their own.
Most importantly, there's a surfeit of sugar-coated, prickly skin-inducing hooks on the aptly named Honey in the Hive. The Bigger Lovers' approach to the well-travelled power pop landscape is complex enough to set them apart from the pack, yet full of catchy immediacy.
