Not as perky as we'd hoped
Things you want from a Brendan Benson track: riffs, zinging power-pop hooks, harmonies worthy of Hall & Oates. What you don’t want: piano balladry, violins and a strained vocal last heard on Orson’s ‘No Tomorrow’. ‘Bad For Me’ is all about the latter – hopefully the rest of upcoming album ‘What Kind Of World’ will be perkier.
