Power pop is a genre prone to overbearing self-conscious, anthemic songwriting and execution, so it's nice to hear a band that, while owing much to the style, does it with low-key humility. The Bye Bye Blackbirds can sound like a less overbearing Elvis Costello on Fixed Hearts, though with greater use of Beach Boys-flavored harmonies and some folk-rock textures, going entirely acoustic for the whimsical "Hats" and the instrumental "Hawaii." Appealingly reedy lead vocals and horns on "Elizabeth Park" move the group from power pop clich�s as well, though the songs of Bradley Skaught (writer of most of the material) will certainly find favor with many power pop fans due to their amiable tunefulness. The compositions don't deal with the good-time love euphoria that is jangly pop/rock's staple, instead being a mixed lot with suggestions of aspirations to goals and destinations never quite reached, as well as plenty of references to natural elements like starlight, sunshine, fog, and rain. ~ Richie Unterberger
