Music Review: 'Blend' (1996)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Lead Performance: The Bodeans; Genre: Rock

Having finally achieved pop stardom via their Party of Five theme song, this long-suffering Wisconsin bar band now tries to preserve their meager integrity by acting as un-Hollywood as possible. With its timid, muffled harmonies over numbing guitar thrumming, Blend has enough forlorn corn to fill every silo in the heartland. Only when the BoDeans clean up the sound in ''Hey Pretty Girl'' do they approach the mildly catchy hooks of ''Closer to Free.'' C
