MASS APPEAL Gomez shoot for a more mainstream sound on ''Split''

Details Release Date: May 18, 2004; Lead Performance: Gomez

On their fourth album, Split the Difference, U.K. alt-rockers Gomez aim for accessibility. ''Silence'' is an exuberant slice of amped-up Beatlemania, and ''Sweet Virginia'' borrows its pastoral elegance from the Stones classic of the same name. This winning CD marks the first time Gomez have brought in an outside producer -- Tchad Blake (Sheryl Crow) -- and while the hooks could be sharper, his hand clearly makes the ''Difference.''
