Better World Tomorrow
Taken from a review of Rob Smith's BETTER WORLD TOMORROW by Goran Obradovic (POPISM radio show): 'The classic Rubinoo-zed a-capella opening leads right into the power-popin'-Beatlism-by-way-of-Raspberries, 'Any Fool Can See', a place revisited once again through the Merseybeat of 'Sad Sometimes' - both complete with Rob's pop-perfect Eric Carmen-like voice. Skinny-tied audio recollections of like-minded souls, like the already mentioned Rubinoos or The Knack, can be traced in the tracks like 'Deep Sleep' or 'Opposites Attract'. 'Say Goodnight' is a heartbreaking ballad in the shape of an imaginary Wilson/Carmen collaboration and 'Where Does Love Go?', while staying within the balladry frames, will take you towards the AOR direction, which you won't mind at all. Besides the Dion nod mentioned in the liners, 'Little Miss Runaround' will almost make you see The Temptations 'the way they do the things they do' around that mike-stand, while 'On Time Kinda Girl' will definitely make you want to 'get to know better' the Turtles-like sunshine harmony pop genre, if you aren't already familiar with it (which I honestly doubt, if you're already listening to an album like this)'.
