Seven years in the making, Smitten is eleven tracks of meticulously-crafted power pop bliss. It’s as if Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren, Burt Bacharach, and The Beach Boys decided to lock themselves in a recording studio for the better part of a decade to see what would happen.
Because the album is all about infatuation (and what happens afterward), Smitten will be released on Valentine’s Day (February 14) 2017.
The CD version includes a free mp3 album download, a handsome 12-page lyric booklet, and an exclusive 3D viewer for viewing The Simple Carnival’s 3D music videos, like the title track:
Or you can pre-order just the mp3s and receive the download link on Valentine’s Day 2017. (You’ll have to find your own pair of 3D glasses, though.)
Boller crafts great songs and then has the techno-know-how to work magic on them in his studio. And man oh man…what a voice. Pop fans will go nuts over the harmonies here. This album is bursting at the seams with superb melodies and creative arrangements…Eleven tracks of pure pop perfection. Highly recommended. TOP PICK.
