“Pattern Skies” is hands-down most iconic of what The Greenhornes claim to sound like, and “I’m Going Away” is hands-down most iconic of what The Greenhornes actually sound like. Ironic, I know, considering both songs are fan favorites written by the same members; however what I specifically like about The Greenhornes is the effortless fluidity they transition in instruments and melody, finding places for rolling drumbeats, standard bass lines, and the uncharacteristically synched-up three-part harmonies that keep on appearing amongst new rock bands. I almost hate myself for saying this, because it seems damning despite my love for the band, but I think The Greenhornes illustrate how the “boy-band” is making a come-back. With some major exceptions: no more annoyingly inane lyrics and members can actually play their instruments, but it is unmistakable, once you replace a lead singer with a trio or quartet and replace a solo with a chorus-line of singing you are stepping into boy-band territory. It’s not as bad as it seems! The Greenhornes have a built-in likability factor and their songs are rhythmic and distinct (which is very hard to do now-a-days), a perfect fuse of 60’s rock with the 90’s pulse.
