Pollyanna - Didn't Feel a Thing (2000, Longshot/Shock)
I believe this is the only other Pollyanna album I have yet to share, and I'm rectifying that right now. How a band of this caliber and consistency slipped through the cracks in their homeland, let alone who never enjoyed having any of their releases see the light of day in North America is yet another unsolved mystery. Yep, these Aussie indie kids who sport a melancholy streak on their final outing, Didn't Feel a Thing, could teach today's young crop of hopefuls a thing or two about the art of real songcraft. There's an air of maturity, not to mention sobriety, coursing through Didn't Feel... and as such it sometimes lacks the visceral power chord wallop of previous albums like Hello Halo, but is still entirely recommendable if you liked the otherPollyannaalbums I've shared, or for that matter Buffalo Tom's Red Letter Day.
