From the start, I was hooked with the title track having all the resonance of a Maroon 5 hit, followed by “Back Where We Belong,” another Maroon 5 clone. In fact, the Last Goodnight obliviously gets song inspiration from other artists’ radio hits.
On “Push Me Away,” the band borrows blatantly from the Verve Pipe’s “The Freshmen.” However, “If I Talk to God” and “Return to Me” are unique standouts.
Each song is simple in structure yet effective. All the tracks are sweet and meaningful without being syrupy.
Poison Kiss is currently available.
