Album Review

Backing away from the introspective inclinations of Free-for-All, Michael Penn delivers a concise and thoroughly infectious guitar pop album with Resigned. Like most of Penn's music, the album relies heavily on Revolver-era Beatles, but his melodies are uniformly tighter and catchier than before, and producer Brendan O'Brien gives the record a crisp, attractive sound. None of the tracks initially stand out like "No Myth" or "Long Way Down," yet each song is well constructed and filled with hooks, making Resigned a terrific third album from Penn.
